Code of Student Conduct & Policy Guide
Ensuring the safety of every student is a top priority in Lake County and our district is doing everything we can to keep our campuses secure and to protect our students. Well-informed parents and guardians become a helpful resource, reinforcing our efforts toward making our schools great places to learn and work. Similarly, when students understand their rights and responsibilities at school, they are more likely to follow the rules and respect the process.
Therefore, the Code of Student Conduct and Policy Guide defines the rules of conduct and the behavioral expectations for students. The Code of Student Conduct also establishes the consequences for violations of these rules and describes the procedures for processing disciplinary violations. The Lake County School Board approves the Code of Student Conduct and Policy Guide annually as information is added and updated.
