Code of Conduct

Behavioral standards for all students are defined in the Orange County Code of Student Conduct. The code of student conduct helps students, parents, and school personnel understand the guidelines for maintaining a safe and orderly learning environment. This code applies to all Orange County Public School (OCPS) students. Students are expected to conduct themselves in such a way as to not interfere with the educational opportunities provided to them and their classmates.


The standards established on the Code of Conduct apply to all educational settings: classrooms, school grounds, school buses and field trips. All students must obey district rules, as stated in the Code of Student Conduct, while on school grounds, while being transported to or from school at public expense and during school–sponsored events, such as field trips and other school functions. Students, teachers, administrators and parents all play a key role in establishing appropriate discipline in the school environment.

Consequences for offenses are in accordance with the Orange County Code of Student Conduct. The contents of this document are reviewed in each classroom throughout the school year. A copy of the Code of Student Conduct is available electronically on the OCPS website. A paper copy of the Code can be obtained free of charge at school or at the Ronald Blocker Educational Leadership Center upon request.

The majority of the discipline concerns are handled by the teacher in the classroom. Teachers will contact parents to address any behavioral concerns. Persistent disciplinary concerns or offenses of a more serious nature will be referred to administration for consideration. Parents may be asked to come to school to attend a meeting in order to discuss the student's conduct. As students continue to increase their awareness of academics, they should also mature in their knowledge of appropriate student conduct. We will work as a team to provide them with the tools they need to succeed. Student behavior can lead to dismissal from the magnet program.
