STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT
- II.Policy Statement
- IV.References COMAR 13A.08.01.11
Talbot County Public Schools is committed to ensuring and fostering a positive, respectful, nurturing, safe and orderly environment where all students will learn. Talbot County Public Schools believes that in order to provide this environment, clear expectations for appropriate behavior be communicated, appropriate behaviors taught and reinforced, and consequences for inappropriate behavior be communicated and administered.
To realize this desired outcome, the Talbot County Board of Education recognizes the need to establish a discipline code of conduct that reflects a philosophy that acknowledges, promotes and teaches positive behavior. The code of conduct utilizes consequences, interventions and supports to teach students appropriate behavior, which is the shared responsibility of school staff, students, parents/guardians, and the community. All stakeholders’ opinions are valued and all students are given the opportunity to succeed.
The Superintendent shall develop Administrative Regulations to implement this policy.
