Maintaining an environment supportive of learning and free of disruptive conduct is important to the success of our children’s education. To further this goal, it is the intent of the district to promote, through this policy, mutual respect, civility and orderly conduct among district employees, parents/guardians, and other members of the public. It is also the intent of this policy to encourage positive communication and discourage disruptive, volatile, hostile or aggressive communication or actions. Furthermore, this policy is intended to maintain, to the extent possible, a safe, harassment-free workplace for teachers, students, administrators, other staff, parents/guardians and the public. It is not the district’s intent to deprive any person of his/her right to freedom of expression. The district encourages the public’s cooperation with and adherence to this policy.
