Neshaminy High School
Student Discipline Code 2012 - 2013
The guidelines for administering discipline in the high school are authorized by School Board Policy #505 – Discipline. Discipline does not mean the suppression of young people. It means consistently helping them regulate their own behavior to grow in the way that is most meaningful to them. It means helping society in general, to have regulations and to establish boundaries within which all are expected to function. It means providing an atmosphere where one may test his/her own individuality and identity. Above all, it means teaching students self-control and that each individual is responsible for his/her own behavior.
It is the aim of the Neshaminy High School Faculty and Administration to promote honesty and integrity in all staff-student interactions. The expectation is for students to be truthful and proper in word and action in matters of school and disciplinary interactions. Failure to abide by this expectation may result in further disciplinary consequence Students need limits. Efficient classroom management means limits are constructed rationally, communicated effectively, and enforced consistently and fairly. Freedom for the student - the freedom to learn and to interact democratically - exists only within a defined social structure. We believe that good behavior must be motivated and expected in order to be learn. Our outlook on discipline is, therefore, entirely constructive.
