An environment conducive to learning must be free from conflict, threats of danger, and undue disruption. To that end, the Disciplinary Review Hearing Office coordinates and enforces the school division’s efforts to maintain safe, healthy learning environments in each of its schools. It is also the mission of the Disciplinary Review Hearing Office to assist in an effort to ensure that education is provided in an atmosphere that is conducive to learning, free of disruption and threat to person or property, and supportive of individual’s rights. The office implements School Board policy and the Code of Student Conduct through the accomplishment of the following goals:
- Assists schools with providing a safe environment that is conducive to learning and free from disruptions.
- Provides training that addresses the implementation of the Code of Student Conduct.
- Ensures the establishment of guidelines for student conduct that are acceptable and appropriate within the school environment.
- Ensures that the Code of Student Conduct and the disciplinary process and procedures are managed effectively, consistently, efficiently, and legally as set forth in School Board policies.
