MISD STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT
The Student Code of Conduct is the district’s response to the requirements of Chapter 37 of the Texas Education Code. The Code of Conduct provides methods and options for managing students in the classroom and on school grounds, disciplining students, and preventing and intervening in student discipline problems. The law requires the district to define misconduct that may or must, result in a range of specific disciplinary consequences including removal from a regular classroom or campus, out-of school suspension, placement in a disciplinary alternative education program (DAEP), or expulsion from school. The Student Code of Conduct has been adopted by the Manor ISD Board of Trustees and developed with the advice of the district-level committee. The Student Code of Conduct provides information to parents and students regarding standards of conduct, consequences of misconduct, and procedures for administering discipline. In accordance with state law, the Code of Conduct will be posted at each school campus or will be available for review at the office of the campus principal. Additionally, the Code of Conduct will be posted on the district’s website. Parents will be notified of any conduct violation that may result in a student being suspended, placed in DAEP, or expelled.
The Manor Middle School Student/Parent Handbook is based on the Code of Conduct and contains information students and parents may need to ensure a successful school year. Throughout the handbook, the term "the student's parent" means parent, legal guardian, or other person who has agreed to assume school related responsibility for a student.
Students and parents need to be familiar with the Manor Middle School Student/Parent Handbook, which sets out the consequences for inappropriate behaviors. The Student Code of Conduct is intended to promote school safety and an atmosphere for learning.
The Manor Middle School Student/Parent Handbook is designed to be used in conjunction with Board policy, and the District Student Code of Conduct. The student Code of Conduct is adopted by the Manor ISD School Board. Any topic not addressed in the Manor Middle School Student/Parent Handbook, can be found in the District Code of Conduct. These documents are updated annually. Policy adoption and revisions are an ongoing process. Changes in policy that affect the Student/Parent Handbook provisions will be communicated by newsletters and other communications to students and parents. In case of conflict between a Board policy, the Manor Middle School Student/Parent Handbook, the District Code of Conduct, provisions of student guides, or provisions of policy, the most recently adopted policy by the Board will prevail.
Because the District Student Code of Conduct is adopted by the district’s board of trustees, it has the force of policy; therefore, in case of conflict between the District Student Code of Conduct and the Student/Parent handbook, the Code of Conduct will prevail.
Please Note: The discipline of students with disabilities who are eligible for services under federal law (Individuals with Disabilities Education Act and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973) is subject to the provisions of those laws.
