    Public Comment Invited


    Due to ongoing requests to review and modify the Code of Conduct, the Buffalo Public schools will be continuing its Public Input Forums to receive input from school and community stakeholders (school staff, students, parents, and community members). Dates for Public Input Forums will resume in the beginning of the 2018 academic year and conclude prior to the end of 2018-2019 academic year. Additionally, new public forums will include discussion surrounding an implementation plan for the Code of Conduct.

    Code of Conduct
    The Code of Conduct is applicable to all persons on school property or attending a school function except where a specific provision of the Code indicates that it is applicable only to a certain group of people. This summary will focus on the rules applicable to students and parents.

    The rules set forth in the Code are not the only standards governing the conduct and performance of District students, employees and visitors; it is not intended to, and shall not, limit the authority of the District to take appropriate responsive action upon grounds not listed in the Code, including conduct off school premises and after school hours in appropriate situations.
