Conduct of Students to and from School

The Board has adopted policies and procedures governing student behavior and has authorized each school to develop school rules consistent with Board policies. These policies and procedures apply to students during the school day; while students are going to or returning from school, whether the student is walking, waiting for, or riding a school bus or a private vehicle; and while the student is participating in or attending any school sponsored activity, whether at school or elsewhere. These policies and procedures also apply to students whose conduct at any time or place interferes with or obstructs the mission or operation of the schools, or the safety or welfare of students, employees, or property.
