Stillwater prides itself on the behavior of its students. It is the responsibility of the school to teach self-discipline; therefore, the goal in working with students will be to utilize techniques which promote good discipline and are not merely punitive in nature. When in the judgment of a teacher or administrator a student is involved in unacceptable behavior, appropriate remedial or corrective action will be taken. Discipline will be fair, impartial, reasonable, and non-discriminatory.

Stillwater Public School does not allow use or possession of any of the above items. Students found to be in possession or use of these items are subject to disciplinary action.
The use of obscenity or vulgarities is not permitted and will warrant disciplinary action.

FIGHTING & ASSAULT
SPS has a firm belief that students who engage in fights should be disciplined. There are many alternatives available; students should seek the advice of teachers, counselors, and principals to resolve conflicts. All students involved in a fight will receive disciplinary action. The nature of that disciplinary action will be determined based upon the specific incident. Students involved in fights will be sent home with parents for the remainder of the day, and may face additional in-school placement, suspension, or a combination thereof.
