Student Discipline

General Information

The Muscogee County School District's Handbook and Code of Conduct is written to provide information to create a safe and secure learning environment. To identify standards of conduct for students from the time the student leaves home to go to school until she/ he returns home and any time a student is on school grounds. These rules also apply off school grounds while en route to or from any school activity, function or event. Anytime a student is on a school bus or any other transportation furnished by the school district. The School District also addresses certain off campus misconduct including electronic messages whether or not they originated on school grounds or on school property.

The Code of Conduct provides for the development of age appropriate standards for behavior, a student support process, a progressive discipline process, and a parental involvement process. We encourage all parents to read the handbook thoroughly with your child to help them understand the expectations that students will behave themselves, that they will respect each other and employees, obey student behavior policies adopted by the Board of Education and obey student behavior rules established by individual schools. These expectations once carried out will facilitate learning for all student in a safe and nurturing environment.

Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) is an evidence-based set of practices to manage behavior that is positive, proactive, and preventative. Muscogee County School District (MCSD) is dedicated to implementing PBIS in every school, but is at the beginning stages of this implementation. Please note that the code of conduct applies to every student enrolled in MCSD, regardless of the school's PBIS status.
