Student Code of Conduct

The City School District of Albany is guided by a Student Code of Conduct that is reviewed annually and updated by the Board of Education.

 

The Board of Education has committed to the following Core Values per the district's 2020 Vision, our strategic roadmap to become the best urban school district in America in which to learn and work:

  • Accountability        Responsibility for our words, action and results

  • Equity                   Opportunity, access and achievement for all without predictable gaps, such as race or economic status

  • Excellence            Our best individual and collective efforts and results

  • Integrity                 Doing the right thing at all times

  • Resilience             Persistence in the face of challenges, disappointment and setbacks

The Student Code of Conduct is the guide for expected student behavior at school. The principal, teachers and staff will help students to learn and understand the expected behaviors at school. This code describes those behaviors that are not allowed at school and explains the consequences for inappropriate behavior.

 

The district believes that in a safe, respectful and productive environment, all students know what behaviors are expected of them and understand how to demonstrate appropriate behavior at school. If a student behaves inappropriately, faculty, staff or other school members (including other students) intervene to teach the student appropriate behavior.

 

The district believes the most critical step to building a safe, respectful, and productive learning environment is establishing a positive school climate where students and adults have strong, positive relationships and students understand what is expected of them as learners at school. Schools should nurture students by providing them with behavioral supports and meaningful opportunities for improving social and emotional skills, such as recognizing and managing emotions, developing caring and concern for others, making responsible decisions, establishing positive relationships and handling challenging situations in a constructive way.

 

School principals and staff members must establish and maintain a positive school climate and must effectively communicate, teach and model the positive behaviors they expect students to exhibit in the classroom and in other parts of the school throughout the day.
