Folsom-Cordova Unified School District, Folsom, CA.
The discipline policy of the Folsom-Cordova Unified School District (California) is delineated in this pamphlet. The policy begins with a seven-point belief statement from the Board of Education which defines discipline and outlines the Board's expectations regarding the carrying out of this policy. Responsibilities are then listed for students, parents/guardians, teachers, principals, and the community. Definitions are presented for prohibited behaviors related to assault, defiance, weapons, drugs/alcohol, vandalism, theft, smoking, and profanity. Five possible disciplinary actions for violations are listed along with three offenses which require mandatory suspension. The policy concludes with five alternatives to disciplinary action which can be used to resolve behavior problems. This document was selected by the Association of California School Administrators (ACSA) Task Force on Public Confidence as descriptive of a promising practice or exemplary project worthy of highlighting for the California educational community.
