The Walton County Board of Education is committed to providing a safe, orderly and productive learning environment for all students. Student behavior is based on respect and consideration for the rights of others. Students are expected to conduct themselves at all times in a manner that will contribute to the school district’s belief that schools must be places where students feel safe, supported, valued and respected. Students are expected to:
- Participate fully in the learning process – students should report to school and class on time, attend all regularly scheduled classes, remain in class until excused or dismissed, pay attention to instruction, complete assignments to the best of their ability, and ask for help when needed.
- Avoid behavior that impairs their own or other student’s educational achievement – students should know and avoid the behaviors prohibited by the student code of conduct, take care of their books and other instructional materials and cooperate with others.
- Show respect for the knowledge and authority of teachers, administrators and other school personnel – students must obey directions, use acceptable and courteous language, avoid being rude or disrespectful and follow school rules and procedures.
- Recognize and respect the rights of others – all students should show concern for and encouragement of the educational achievements and efforts of others.
