Hampshire Country School Staff Commitments.
Hampshire Country School, Rindge, NH.
Intended for professional personnel of the Hampshire Country School, which treats gifted children with immobilizing emotional dysfunctions, the handbook specifies staff commitments. The Code of Ethics, adapted from the National Education Association Code as supplemented by The Council for Exceptional Children, sets forth four principles: commitment to the student, to the community, to the profession, and to professional employment practices. A conceptual framework of the school program outlines the rationale of administrative organization and practices, houseparenting, coeducation, extracurricular activities, and the interdependence of specific areas and the totality of the therapeutic community. Qualifications of staff are discussed, and the following are provided: a manual listing rules and regulations, a policy statement on student smoking, and an employee copy of the school contract. (JD)
