School Expectations and Guidelines

Students’ Rights & Responsibilities

Students have the right to an education, the right to due process, the right to express an opinion, the right to be free from discrimination, the right to be treated with dignity, and the right to contribute to the educational program.  Such rights, however, are not without their accompanying responsibilities.  Students have responsibilities not only to themselves, but to those around them.  Students have the responsibility of regular school attendance and the duty of making a conscientious effort in the classroom.  Students also have the responsibility to refrain from interfering with the education of their fellow students.
