District 6 expects all students to behave appropriately for an educational environment and follow school rules. All schools are expected to establish behavior guidelines as defined in the school’s positive behavior intervention and support (PBIS) plan. Any behavior which disrupts the learning environment, and/or is detrimental to the safety and welfare of other students or staff is subject to disciplinary action. The principal or designee may apply disciplinary consequences including suspension or a recommendation for expulsion for any student who engages in one or more of the following activities while in school buildings, on district property, when being transported in vehicles dispatched by the district or one of its schools, during a school-sponsored or district-sponsored activity or event and off school property when the conduct has a reasonable connection to school or any district curricular or non-curricular event.
Consequences for inappropriate behavior are contained in the following chart which is used in all schools. The school’s responses to inappropriate behaviors are subject to change by the direction of Weld County District 6 Board of Education. Prior to the imposition of a consequence, the student will be informed of the behavior for which the consequence is being imposed and will have some opportunity to explain his/her side of the story. Students using Internet must abide by the provision of the District 6 Technology User Agreement and Colorado Revised Statute 18-5.5-101 and 18.5.5-102 (also Title 17, USC Section 102). Copies are available upon request. For students identified as disabled and on an Individual Education Plan, please refer to policy/procedure JK*-2. Please note that any infraction marked with an asterisk (*) may involve school police resource officer or local law enforcement agency. CCS means community/campus service and suspension can be in-school (ISS) or out-of-school (OSS).
