The Board recognizes the fact that standards are important for the maintenance of an atmosphere where orderly learning is possible and encouraged.
The Board of Education recognizes that acceptable behavior is essential to the development of responsible and self-disciplined citizens and in promoting an effective instructional program in the district’s school. Acceptable behavior is based on respect for one’s self and for the worth and human dignity of others. The development of such behavior in students is a dual function of the home and of the school.
In order to fulfill the responsibility of the school, it is necessary that each learning activity contribute positively to the creation and maintenance of a climate that is conducive to learning. Standards of student conduct are established by the Hudson Board of Education to create an environment in which each student’s right to learn is protected.
Students are expected to: (1) attend school punctually and regularly; (2) to obey all the rules and regulations; (3) to obey all directions and requests of teachers; (4) to observe good order and courteous manner; (5) to be diligent in study; (6) to be clean and tidy in person and attire; (7) to be courteous to schoolmates; (8) to refrain from the use of profane or improper language; (9) to refrain from the use of tobacco, drugs, and alcoholic beverages while on school premises or under school supervision and; (10) to refrain from bringing any type of weapon, (guns and knives in particular), onto school property or to any school activity.
Students and parents/guardians will be notified of rights and responsibilities, including standards of conduct, through handbooks distributed and approved by the Board annually.
All district personnel responsible for the care and supervision of students, aides and bus drivers included, are authorized to hold every pupil strictly accountable for any disorderly conduct in school or on any property of the school, on any school bus going to or returning from school, or during any school-sponsored activity.
