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:
Responsibility for our words, action and results
Opportunity, access and achievement for all without predictable
such as race or economic status
Our best individual and collective efforts and results
Doing the right thing at all times
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
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.
