Students who wish to carry book bags with them during the day must have a clear book bag.  Book bags that do not meet the requirement must be placed in their lockers during the school day. If students refuse to comply with this policy, our administration and security teams will get involved to deal with the situation. 
Your cooperation and support in the above areas will assist in ensuring that our school is safe and orderly for our students and staff.

The Students Rights & Responsibilities Handbook (SRRH) is based on the principle that a positive learning environment and a good state of discipline, starts with everyone involved having knowledge and understanding of the basic standards of acceptable conduct and the procedures for handling inappropriate behaviors. Four words provide the recipe for discipline in PGCPS: Prevention, Intervention, and Progressive Discipline. The Code of Student Conduct is a set of twenty-three rules and regulations designed to maintain the order and discipline necessary for a safe learning environment. These fall into two broad categories; gross misconduct and persistent disobedience. Gross Misconduct is defined as willful and malicious acts that seriously disrupt the educational environment in a class, activity, or the school in general.

  • Acts of Gross Misconduct include:
  • Possession or use of alcoholic beverages
  • Arson
  • Possession of fireworks or explosives
  • False Alarms
  • Inciting others to violence or disruption
  • Fighting
  • Physical attack and/or threat of physical attack
  • Theft
  • Possession or use of weapon Vandalism
  • Shakedown or strong arm
  • Bullying, Threats
  • Harassment, Intimidation
  • Possession, use, or distribution of a controlled dangerous substance

Persistent Disobedience is defined as acts that also have a disruptive effect, especially when they are repeated over a period of time.

Acts of Persistent Disobedience include:

  • Cheating
  • Continued class/school disruption
  • Disrespect Distribution of unauthorized printed material
  • False reports
  • Forgery
  • Gambling Insubordination
  • Loitering Smoking
  • Leaving school
  • Repeated Profanity
  • Unauthorized sale or distribution of any object or substance

The Code of Student Conduct recognizes the need for cooperative relationships between the school and home. This relationship is exemplified by:

A home condition which:

  • Assumes the primary responsibility for the discipline of the child
  • Acknowledges the child’s responsibilities and obligations in the school as well as the community.
  • Recognizes that school personnel must concern themselves primarily with the education and instruction of all students.
  • Cooperates with the school and participates in conferences regarding the behavior, health, and/or academic progress of their child.

A responsible student who:

  • Respects authority and obeys school rules and regulations.
  • Shows respect and consideration for the personal and property rights of others and has an understanding of the need for cooperation with all members of the school community.

Responses for Misbehavior as outlined in the Code of Student Conduct may range from mild to severe, depending on the particular circumstance, the frequency, and severity of the misbehavior. Disciplinary response examples are:

  • Teacher-Student Conference
  • Teacher-Parent Conference
  • Counselor-Parent Conference
  • Counselor-Student Conference
  • Administrator-Student-Teacher Conference
  • Administrator-Parent-Student-Teacher Conference
  • Temporary Removal from Class
  • After School Detention
  • Functional Behavior Assessment
  • Behavior Intervention Plan
  • Parent Shadowing
  • Student Program Adjustment
  • Referral to Pupil Services
  • Short or Long Term Suspension
  • Expulsion from School or PGCPS

Please refer the Students Rights & Responsibilities Handbook for a framework for academic standards and positive student behaviors.

Discipline Referrals "PS 74"

The Pupil Discipline Referral PS 74 is forwarded to the Principal/Assistant Principal by staff members for severe or repeated behavior infractions of the Code of Student Conduct. Parents who receive a copy of the PS 74 are asked to review it with their child and follow appropriate action. As needed, parent conference date and time are placed on the PS 74. The signed PS 74 should be returned to the Principal or Assistant Principal. Parents will be informed of their child’s conduct through verbal or written communication from the Principal or Assistant Principal. All PS 74's are entered in School Max, and filed in the cumulative folder with the student’s other records and is retained until the child graduates from high school. If the parent is not contacted regarding the circumstances of the referral, the principal sends the parents a copy of the form to keep.

All students will attend a Code of Conduct assembly in August and January. Subsequent assemblies and class sessions will occur throughout the school year. A copy of the Student Behavioral Contract will need to be signed by you and your child following the Code of Student Conduct orientation.
