This special publication of the specific policies pertaining to students, enacted by the Rockwood School District Board of Education, has been prepared as a means to better inform students and parents of existing policies as related to student discipline. It is hoped that this information will provide a basis of understanding between the home, school and community.
Again this year, the handbook will be available online. The move to this online handbook will save the district printing and processing costs. It also aligns with district efforts to conserve resources and limit paper use. Families who wish to have a printed handbook may request one from their school principal.
All policies and regulations included in this publication were recently reviewed and revised by various school administrators. Recommended changes in existing and new policies have been approved by the Rockwood Board of Education. In addition, the Rockwood Board of Education has approved a behavioral code for students attending Rockwood Schools.
This booklet does not include special rules developed by the principal and staff of an individual building. It is the responsibility of the principal of each building to keep students and their parents or guardians informed of any special rules developed for the operation of that particular school. Such rules will be consistent with the policies of the Rockwood Board of Education. Parents and students who have questions about the intent or meaning of any of these policies are urged to contact school officials.
