Code of Conduct
The Ken-Ton School District is committed to providing a safe and inclusive school environment where students may receive, and district personnel may deliver, quality educational services without disruption or interference. Responsible behavior by students, teachers, other district personnel, parents and other visitors is essential to achieving this goal. The District has a long-standing set of expectations for conduct on school property and at school functions based on its vision, mission, and values.
The Ken-Ton School District Code of Conduct was originally developed in 1986 to implement the newly updated Part 100 of the New York State Education Commissioner’s Regulations. In accordance with those regulations, there have been annual reviews and substantial revisions in the Code of Conduct. The Safe Schools Against Violence in Education Act (Project SAVE) was signed into the New York State Law on July 24, 2000.
The purpose of the Code of Conduct is to clearly define expectations for acceptable conduct on school property, to identify the possible consequences of unacceptable conduct, and to ensure that discipline, when necessary, is administered promptly and fairly.
