Code of Conduct
The Orchard Park Central School District is committed to providing a safe and orderly school environment where students may receive and the 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. These expectations are based on the principles of civility, mutual respect, responsibility, citizenship, character, tolerance, honesty, and integrity.
The Board of Education recognizes the need to clearly define these 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. To this end, the Board adopts this Code of Conduct in collaboration with school/community constituents.
Unless otherwise indicated, this Code applies to all students, school personnel, parents and other visitors when on school property or attending a school function.
