• Pupil Discipline

    The Board of Education has adopted Policy 5600: Pupil Discipline/Code of Conduct to establish standards and procedures for positive pupil development and behavioral expectations on school grounds, on a school bus or at a school-sponsored function, and as appropriate, for conduct away from school grounds.
    Every pupil enrolled in this district shall observe promulgated rules and regulations and submit to the discipline imposed for any infraction of those rules. Regulation 5600 includes a description of school responses and consequences to violations of the behavioral expectations established by the Board that, at a minimum, are graded according to the severity of the offenses, considering the developmental ages of the pupil offenders and pupils’ histories of inappropriate behaviors pursuant to N.J.A.C. 6A:16-7.1(c)5.
