Objective Code of Conduct
The objective of this code is to
establish rules with regard to the conduct of all students in the
School District of the City of St. Charles. These rules have been
deemed appropriate and necessary for the maintenance of a wholesome
school climate. As such, this Code of Conduct should be reviewed by
students and their parents.
These rules and standards apply to student conduct:
1. On school premises
2. On school buses
3. Involving school property
4. Off school premises which directly affects the school
5. At school functions of any kind.
This code does not define all types and aspects
of students' behavior. The Board of Education has the authority to
set forth policies, rules and regulations to help each student
conduct himself in a proper manner as a good citizen of the school
community. (167.161-.171 RSMo, 1980.)
When possible, this Code of Student Conduct should be introduced
to elementary students prior to their enrollment in middle school.
As such, it should be an extension of the district's elementary
Parent/Student Handbook reflecting the increased maturity and
responsibility of middle school students and high school students.
For the purposes of this code, the term principal refers to the
principal, or assistant principal of any building in the school
district, or the director of the Lewis and Clark Career Center.
