Student Code of Conduct
STUDENT DISCIPLINE: THE RESPONSIBILITY OF STUDENTS, PARENTS, AND SCHOOLS
The St. Mary Parish School Board and the State of Louisiana have adopted laws and policies for every teacher to hold every student to a strict accountability for any disorderly conduct in school or attending school events, on the street or bus going to or returning from school, or during intermission or recess.
School discipline includes options of counseling, student conferences, corporal punishment, student adjustment centers, suspension, and/or expulsion. In all cases, the discipline should be positive, constructive, and directed toward serving educational ends. While the individual rights of a student must be considered, the order and stability of the educational institution must be preserved. The ultimate responsibility of a student's conduct rests with the student and his or her parent.
