Codes of Student Discipline and Student Rights. An ERS Report.
Doob, Heather Sidor
This report is intended to serve school administrators by providing basic information, positive suggestions, and examples pertaining to student codes. It presents findings of a recent inquiry regarding written codes of student discipline and replicates examples of selected codes. Seventy-six percent of the 538 responding school systems indicated that they have developed written codes of discipline for secondary level pupils. Large districts (enrollments of 25,000 or more) were the most likely to have such codes; very small districts (enrollments of 200-2,999), were the least likely. Written codes of student rights were much less prevalent; 34 percent of all respondents reported having a written code of student rights. The examples of written codes of student discipline and rights were drawn from the codes of school districts in ten different states. (Author/IRT)
