Please refer to Section 7 of the District 209 Board Policy Manual and the Discipline and Conduct section of the Parent Student Handbook for additional information.
The Board of Education of Proviso Township High Schools District 209 recognizes fully that it has the responsibility to provide a quality education for the students of District 209. In order to produce the educational climate necessary to accomplish this goal, the Board further realizes that it is the school’s responsibility to maintain order and discipline and to do all in its power to avoid serious disruption of the educational process. Another responsibility inherent in formulating a definite policy concerning behavior is the communication of that policy. For this reason, the Behavior Code is being directed to the students, parents and guardians of Proviso Township High Schools District 209 in this section of the Student Handbook.
The Behavior code is intended to provide guidelines for general student behavior. It must be added that many problems might arise which do not fall into the categories of general behavior described in this code. Exceptions may be made in cases involved in unusual physical, psychological, or social problems. In these cases, a referral will be made to the appropriate medical, psychological, or social agency, instead of adhering strictly to the procedures outlined in this code.
