The Attorney General's Proposed Voluntary Student Code of Conduct.
Texas State Attorney General's Office, Austin.; Texas State Board of Education, Austin.; Texas Education Agency, Austin.
Intended as a guide for Texas school districts wishing to adopt or modify a student code of conduct, this proposed code describes a positive learning atmosphere, specifies conduct that disrupts such an environment, assures the rights and responsibilities of students, and standardizes procedures to be used in responding to disciplinary problems. Specific topics are organized under four general headings: responsibilities of the school community, student rights and responsibilities, student discipline, and posting of offenses. The appendices include an overview of the process by which judicial proceedings may be instituted when individuals commit acts prohibited by law and two alternative approaches to corporal punishment. Sample handouts listing student responsibilities at the elementary, junior high, and high school levels are attached. (WD)
