Code of Conduct
Troy students are expected to be respectful, responsible, and peaceful at all times. The district subscribes to a philosophy of Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports (PBIS) through which desired behaviors are identified, directly taught, and consistently reinforced in all Troy Schools. Grounds for disciplinary action apply whenever the student’s misconduct is reasonably related to school or school activities, including, but not limited to:
- On, or within sight of, school grounds before, during, or after school hours or at any other time when the school is being used by a school group;
- Off school grounds at a school-sponsored activity or event, or any activity or event which bears a reasonable relationship to school;
- Traveling to or from school or a school activity, function or event; or
- Anywhere, if the conduct may reasonably be considered to be a threat to or an attempted intimidation of a staff member, or an interference with school purposes or an educational function.
When breaches of school disciplinary rules and regulations occur, it is the responsibility of involved teachers and administrators to work with the student, his/her parents / guardians, and other support personnel to help the student correct his/her behavior. All disciplinary actions shall be directed toward protecting the welfare of the school community as well as toward helping the student develop self-discipline. School personnel will consider the nature of the act, the student's previous history, his/her age and maturation, any mitigating circumstances, and the effect of his/her actions on the welfare of the school community. It is the prerogative of the school administration to recommend suspension and/or expulsion of any student for repeated violations of school rules.
We recognize that any list of misbehaviors and consequences can not be all-inclusive; therefore, the certified staff of your child’s school will appropriately deal with any misbehaviors that are not included in the handbook. If you have any questions, feel free to contact your child’s school.
Schools must be safe and positive learning environments for all students. Within such environments, bullying behaviors are not tolerated. Bullying is defined as a repeated oppression, psychological or physical, of a less powerful person by a more powerful person or persons. Typically, bullying includes, but is not limited to, teasing, taunting, threatening, hitting and stealing. Such behavior will not be tolerated in Troy Schools, on busses, at bus stops, or at any school-related activities.Should a student exhibit bullying behaviors, his or her parents will be notified by a school administrator. The school will monitor the bullying behavior and appropriate disciplinary actions will be taken if the behavior continues or if repeated acts occur.
Bus Conduct and Revocation of Bus-Riding Priviledges
School bus riders shall conduct themselves in a respectful manner at all times. The safety and security of our students is of utmost importance to Troy CCSD 30-C. Video cameras are utilized to ensure the safety of this environment. Troy CCSD 30-C is not responsible for supervision of students once they leave the bus. Students are expected to refrain from conduct that would endanger other students or property or would be otherwise disruptive.
A student may lose his/her bus riding privileges if that person commits any act that endangers the safety of other students or engages in any act of willful destruction to any part of a school bus.
