Student Code of Conduct
Highlands School District promotes a district-wide philosophy supported by procedures and policies that contribute to the promotion of a RAMS for Life attitude. We expect our students to be Respectful, Accountable, Motivated and Safe in all school settings and in the community. The administration, teachers and support staff teach students what these behaviors look like, recognize those students who display these behaviors and encourage and support students who struggle. A large portion of this philosophy depends on consistency, communication and cooperation among all stakeholders.
Highlands School District is recognized both nationally and at the state level for having exceptional programs for Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) and Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS) models. We have been awarded grants to develop these programs district wide.
One of the primary goals of Highlands Early Childhood Center is to promote constructive and respectful behaviors. The procedures and consequences described in the tables below are designed to modify unacceptable behavior, not to punish. Students will be expected to make appropriate decisions concerning their behaviors. If they choose to make an inappropriate behavior choice, consequences will be assigned. The following guidelines serves as a framework for behavior throughout the school.
