Code of Conduct

The Manchester-Shortsville Central School District Board of Education is committed to providing a safe and orderly school environment where students may receive and district personnel may deliver quality educational services without disruption or interference. Responsible behavior by students, teachers, other district personnel, parents and other visitors is essential to achieving this goal. Accordingly, in collaboration with students, parents, teachers and administrators, the Board has established this Code of Conduct. It applies to all students, school personnel, parents, vendors and other visitors when on school property, in school vehicles or in attendance at a school function. Students may be disciplined for conduct that occurs outside of school property that may endanger the health or safety of pupils within the educational system or adversely affect the educational process.

The district has a long-standing set of expectations for conduct on school property and at school functions (see Board Policy #3410). These expectations are based on the principles of civility, mutual respect, citizenship, character, tolerance, honesty and integrity.

The board recognizes the need 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. To this end, the board adopts this Code of Conduct (“code”).
