The Board of Education (“Board”) is committed to providing a safe and orderly learning environment where students may receive and District personnel may deliver quality educational services without disruption or interference while respecting the dignity of all students. Responsible behavior by students, teachers, other District personnel, parents and other visitors is essential to achieving this goal.
The Duanesburg Central School District, through its present policies, has a long-standing set of expectations for its students, conduct on school property and at school functions. These expectations are based on the principles of civility, mutual respect, dignity, citizenship, character, tolerance, honesty, and integrity.
The Board recognizes the need, based upon legislation adopted by the State of New York, to clearly define these expectations for acceptable conduct on school property, to identify the possible consequences of unacceptable conduct, and to ensure that discipline, when necessary, is administered promptly and fairly. The Board now adopts this Code of Conduct (“Code”).
