Uniform Student Code of Conduct

Revised 2017
Board of Education Policy 5301

Student Conduct

The School District is committed to programs that will encourage the development of citizens who have self respect and respect for others, who comply with existing laws and who accept their corresponding rights and responsibilities.

The District will develop and maintain a Uniform Code of Student Conduct which sets forth rights and responsibilities, as well as the rules and regulations to which all students are subject. The Uniform Code of Student Conduct will formulate clear expectations for individual students and student groups and will specify the processes to provide and regulate student rights and responsibilities.

The rules and regulations described in the Uniform Code of Student Conduct will not limit the authority of school personnel to deal appropriately with types of conduct not specifically described in the Code. The principal or designee in each building will treat conduct violations not specifically covered in the Code uniformly and fairly.

In order to assure that procedures used by the School District to deal with student conduct and discipline are current, procedures will be established by the administration for periodic review of all disciplinary and conduct rules and regulations.

Preamble

It is very important for you to read and understand this Uniform Code of Student Conduct as it is a statement of both your rights and your responsibilities.

Article B: Prohibited Behavior | Regulation 5301.2

Students are subject to the authority of district officials and the Uniform Code of Student Conduct going to and from school and/or schoolsponsored events and activities, and at schoolsponsored events and activities which take place off of school premises (i.e., offcampus).


Students are prohibited from engaging in offcampus misconduct of a serious and/or criminal nature which poses a likelihood of danger to the health (physical or emotional) or welfare of students or district personnel (e.g., selling drugs offcampus), or which reasonably makes the continued presence of the student in the school disruptive to the educational process (i.e., committing a crime offcampus which is vicious in nature).


A student who has engaged in misconduct resulting in expulsion or longterm suspension in another school system, or who has withdrawn from said school system before such misconduct was established by an appropriate hearing, which misconduct, if true, is of sufficient gravity to pose a threat to the health or welfare of students or district personnel, or makes the presence of the student in the school disruptive to the educational process, may be subject to suspension or expulsion from Bloomfield Hills Schools where such misconduct has been established in a hearing before the Superintendent (or designee).


Certain administrative procedures may occur during the disciplinary process. For example, a student may be isolated from other students, appropriate social or medical agencies may be contacted for assistance, and disciplinary action may be recorded on a student's disciplinary record. The appropriate police agency will be contacted in all cases involving violation of local or township ordinances, state or federal law. When prohibited behavior occurs or is suspected, communication with parent/legal guardian is strongly encouraged and is required in cases of suspension and/or police involvement.


Depending on the circumstances, the District may take any appropriate disciplinary action in response to student misconduct occurring on or off school property, including suspension or expulsion, whether or not it is listed. Action Codes are presented in an order that allows most offenses to be addressed in a graduated manner, at the discretion of the building administration.


All offenses related to controlled substances require Action Codes 4 and 5
