Developing a student code of conduct
Acting as the new principal of your school, and incorporating your Clinical Field Experience information, develop an original student code of conduct that aligns to the school’s vision and mission, promotes every student’s academic and social success, and establishes a positive learning environment conducive to protecting students and school personnel.
Include the following sections in your Student Code of Conduct:
Background: A brief description of the school, including grade level range, student and staff numbers, and geographic location such as rural, urban, or suburban.
Student Code of Conduct Values Statement: A one-page outline describing specific school values that promote positive behaviors and a school culture that align to the school’s vision and mission. Include a list of 4-5 specific behavioral expectations for all students (e.g., “All students will respect the rights of others.”).
Student Code of Conduct Topics: A one-page outline listing 7-10 student code of conduct topics/policies you would include in the handbook to protect the welfare and safety of students and staff.
Write a 500-750 word narrative explaining why you developed the student code of conduct the way you did. Explain how the student code of conduct ensures academic and social success for every student by promoting integrity, fairness, social justice, equity, acceptance, and respect between and among students and faculty within the school.
Support your narrative with 2-3 scholarly resources.
