Brandywine School District Code of Student Conduct


    The District’s Code of Student Conduct is an official policy of the Brandywine Board of Education.  It is based on the premise that the primary goals in discipline are improving behavior and protecting the welfare of all students.  The Code applies to all students in preschool through 12th grade unless noted otherwise.  Differences in age and maturity are recognized in determining appropriate disciplinary action, but all students have responsibility for their actions.



    Students, staff are required and parents are encouraged to become familiar with the entire contents of the documents which describe:
    • The rights and responsibilities of students
    • The attendance policy
    • Conduct that disrupts a positive environment
    • Procedures for disciplinary action

    The Code of Student Conduct is in force:

    • On school property and on the school bus at all times
    • At all activities where school administrators or appropriate staff have jurisdiction over students
    • If the principal is authorized to take administrative action when a student’s misconduct to and from school is harmful to other students or to orderly education
    • If a student’s out-of-school conduct presents a threat to the health, safety, or welfare of other students and staff
