Model Student Code of Conduct

July 2017

About

  • The Model Student Code of Conduct is intended to assist your district in developing and maintaining your local Student Code of Conduct, mandated by Chapter 37 of the Texas Education Code.
  • The Model addresses the legal requirements of student codes of conduct in general and offers suggestions you may wish to include in your local Student Code of Conduct.
  • It attempts to organize and harmonize the provisions of the law into a framework that, with fine-tuning by individual districts, can serve to communicate to students, parents, school staff, and the community exactly what is expected of students and how misconduct will be handled.
