Code of Conduct
The Board of Education of the Harrison School District 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. The Board of Education believes that order and discipline is a shared responsibility between school, home and community. Responsible behavior by students, teachers, other district personnel, parents and other visitors is essential to achieving this goal, which is critical to a successful academic program.
The District has a long-standing set of expectations for conduct on school property and at school functions. These expectations are based on the principles of civility, mutual respect, citizenship, character, tolerance, honesty and integrity. Students, staff, parents, community members, and visitors are expected to uphold these standards to promote and ensure a safe and orderly school community where students can flourish and fulfill their potential.
The Board acknowledges the need to clearly define expectations for acceptable conduct, to identify the possible consequences of unacceptable conduct, and to ensure that discipline when necessary is administered promptly and fairly. To this end, the Boardadopts this Code of Conduct.
