The purpose of this booklet is to inform students and parents of some of their basic rights, as well as the responsibilities that go along with these rights. The rights and responsibilities in no way diminish the legal authority of school officials and the Board of Education.
No student has the right to interfere with the education of a fellow student. Students have the responsibility to respect the rights of all persons involved in the educational process and to exercise the highest degree of self-discipline in observing and adhering to legitimate rules and regulations. Responsibility is inherent in the exercise of every right.
