District Developed Behavioral Standards

BECAUSE poorly behaving students disrupt the learning environment and limit learning opportunities for all children, and

BECAUSE administrative support for teacher implementation of proper behavioral standards should be based on standards that have been clearly defined and published in school documents including appropriate consequences for violations, and

BECAUSE it is the responsibility of the state to assure that the behavior standards established by each school are appropriate and reasonable,

THEREFORE that each state determine reasonable behavioral standards and consequences intended for enforcement to be implemented in the public schools, and the state must show support for district implementation of those standards by bearing the cost of notifying parents of said standards and implementation.
