Student conduct, which is considered to be a violation of the Student Conduct & Discipline Code is described within your handbook. Some important definition of the following words can be found there:
DRESS CODE:
Jackson Heights Middle School is committed to providing the best possible education for you. In order to continue with this goal, it is important to have a dress code that promotes a non-distracting, nonviolent, and non-harmful atmosphere on campus.

Skirts must no shorter than mid thigh

Shorts - bottom of the shorts should reach at least the bottom of your longest fingertip when arms are at your side

CLOTHING/ITEMS NOT ALLOWED
Clothing with holes revealing inappropriate parts of the body and/or above the dress code line for shorts
Drooping pants or shorts
Spaghetti strap shirts or low-cut tops
All shirts must have sleeves or a collar
Hats or hoods
Any item that is distracting to the educational environment of the school

Avoid being
"that" guy
or "that" girl
SUSPENSION & Expulsion:
Suspension is the temporary removal of a student from a class, all classes or from a student’s zoned school and all district schools and school or school board sponsored activities, except as authorized by a student’s principal for a prescribed period of time, not to exceed ten (10) school days at any one time.

Expulsion is the severest penalty the School Board may impose for a violation of the Student Conduct and Discipline Code.

Expulsion is the removal of the right and obligation of a student to attend public school for a specified period of time

Teachers Note: You don't like suspensions or expulsions where you have to do work without our help nearby and either do we. Be responsible and keep the code of conduct in mind and we'll all have a great year!
ATTENDANCE:
Regular attendance provides students the opportunity to acquire specific skills, and meet course goals/objectives

SCPS has adopted attendance policies that outline what qualifies as an excused absence and unexcused absence, and provide guidelines for the make up of work missed due to an absence.

ZERO TOLERANCE:
The following are offenses from the Discipline and Conduct Code for which there is zero tolerance, meaning
JHMS must automatically notify law enforcement & Recommend expulsion
:

Bringing, or possessing a firearm or weapon, to school, to any school function, or onto any school-sponsored transportation.

Making a threat or false report, involving a school or school personnel’s property, school transportation, or a school sponsored activity.

Citizenship Standards:
SCPS expects a higher standard of excellence from students involved in school sponsored extra-curricular activities

Standard of behavior should be one that exhibits
pride
,
politeness
, and
responsibility


We know you'll help make this year a GREAT one!
Reporting a Student Grievance:

A student (or his/her parent on the student’s behalf) can lodge a formal complaint about alleged discrimination or harassment at school or during a school-sponsored activity. The student should file a written complaint with his or her school counselor, building principal, or the District Equity Administrator.
