Dear Parents and Guardians,
As we begin the school year I would like to invite you and your children to join us in making this year a huge success. We encourage you and your children to read and discuss the Student Code of Conduct. Our staff is looking forward to collaborating with you so that all measures are in place for student achievement.
The Student Code of Conduct is designed to provide you with the expectations for student behavior in all of our schools. There is important information in the Code of Conduct which also explains the role you play in helping us ensure your student reaches his or her fullest potential.
Please read each page carefully and review all material with your children before signing the Acknowledgement Form, which can be found in the first day of school packet. This form must be returned to your child’s school with both the parent and student signature.
We recognize that parental involvement is one of the key factors in a child’s education and we are grateful for the chance to work collaboratively with you. Thank you for trusting Hillsborough County Public Schools with your child's education and thank you for all you do to help us as we are Preparing Students for Life. We are proud to be ranked as one fo the top large school districts in the nation, with award-winning work in equity and diversity, the arts, STEM education and more.
All policies in the Student Code of Conduct are subject to change due to the actions of the Florida Legislature, the Florida Board of Education, the state and federal courts, the School Board of Hillsborough County, and the district or school administration.
SOME INDIVIDUAL SCHOOL PROCEDURES MAY VARY ACCORDING TO EACH SCHOOL’S IMPROVEMENT PLAN APPROVED BY THE HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD.
