Code of Conduct. Minimum Standards Implementation Series.
Ohio State Dept. of Education, Columbus. Div. of Elementary and Secondary Education.
One of a series of implementation documents prepared in conjunction with the revised minimum standards adopted in 1983 by the Ohio State Board of Education for elementary and secondary schools, this publication discusses the basic elements of a code of conduct for students that complies with the requirements set forth in the minimum standards. Chapter 1 discribes general procedures for developing a code of conduct. Concepts to be included in the code are reviewed, and the components of a code of conduct plan are outlined, as well as suggested formats for outlining corrective measures for violations. Chapter 2 focuses primarily on student rights and responsibilities, with special emphasis on constitutional rights. It describes how statements of student rights and responsibilities can be used to establish a framework for a code of conduct. Chapter 3 discusses several major discipline issues related to various aspects of student conduct. These include substance abuse, violence and vandalism, corporal punishment, personal appearance, truancy and tardiness, and nonschool conduct/extracurricular activities. Chapter 4 outlines the basic elements of due process and establishes a framework for its use in suspending or expelling students. References are included. (TE)
