Student Code of Conduct, Rights and Responsibilities Now Available Online
In order to ensure a safe, productive and positive learning environment, MCPS publishes two documents that help students, parents and staff understand school rules and regulations; the expectations for student conduct; and possible consequences for violating the rules.
A Student’s Guide to Rights and Responsibilities is an overview of the rights and responsibilities students enjoy in MCPS, and a summary of the laws and regulations that affect students.
The MCPS Student Code of Conduct provides an overview of discipline procedures and protocols and the range of consequences students could face for violating various policies, regulations and rules. The guide also discusses the MCPS philosophy on discipline and defines the various disciplinary responses.
You can view both of these guides, as well as our Guidelines for Respecting Religious Diversity and the Guidelines for Student Gender Identity, on the MCPS website.
