Lakeland Central School District is committed to maintaining high standards of
education for students. Because the District believes that order and discipline
are essential to being educated effectively, the District is also committed to
creating and maintaining high behavioral standards and expectations. An orderly
educational environment requires that everyone in the school community has a role
in contributing to an effective environment. It also requires the development
and implementation of a code of discipline that clearly defines individual
responsibilities, describes unacceptable behavior, and provides for appropriate
disciplinary options and responses.
The District believes that order and
discipline must be a shared responsibility between school, home, and community.
This Code of Conduct was developed in collaboration with student, teacher,
administrator and parent organizations, school safety personnel and other
Board-approved school personnel.
