School Discipline Procedures
Students are expected to behave appropriately in school, on school property (including school transportation), and at school-related activities and events at all times. School administrators are authorized to discipline students for violations of school rules and gross disobedience or misconduct as set forth in District 86 Board of Education policies.
When students violate board policy they will engage in consequences as well as multiple behavioral interventions. Restorative measures means a continuum of school-based alternatives to exclusionary discipline, such as suspensions and expulsions, that: (I) are adapted to the particular needs of the school and community, (II) contribute to maintaining school safety, (III) protect the integrity of a positive and productive learning climate, (IV) teach students the personal and interpersonal skills they will need to be successful in school and society, (v) serve to build and restore relationships among students, families, schools, and communities, and (vi) reduce the likelihood of future disruption by balancing accountability with an understanding of students' behavioral health needs in order to keep students in school.
