Stillwater Public Schools believes parental involvement is necessary in successful discipline. These disciplines or a combination thereof are intended to alter and improve student behavior. Discipline shall be consistent with the nature and severity of the offense, and shall take into account whether it is a first or repeat offense and the student’s discipline record. Discipline shall also be consistent from student to student under similar circumstances considering the exceptions dictated by federal law. Discipline of students with disabilities will be administered pursuant to federal and state laws. The intent of this policy is to limit the amount of lost instructional time.
