DISCIPLINE EXPECTATIONS (ENGLISH)

It is important to know that behavioral expectations for students are still in place during our Universal Remote Learning environment, and we encourage families to review the 2020-2021 FCS Code of Conduct Handbook as there are several changes.


Potential rule infractions in a virtual learning environment include, but are not limited to, harassment, bullying, cyber bullying, technology offenses, disruption and insubordination. Please note that code of conduct rule violations can also occur in the community or when using social media inappropriately. It is important that the school is notified of any student behaviors that negatively impact the school or virtual learning environment. Furthermore, incidents of harassment, racial slurs, bigotry, derogatory comments, physical harassment, ethnically offensive behaviors or any threats of harm to others will not be tolerated and will be taken very seriously. Depending on the nature and severity of the offense, the District’s response may include disciplinary consequences up to and including long term suspension/expulsion from school. Please note any behavior that violates the FCS Code of Conduct Handbook will be addressed through our district’s discipline process.


Below are some potential discipline responses that will be utilized in the Universal Remote Learning environment include, but are not limited to, the following:

Parent Conference Suspension from synchronous learning

Restorative Practice Conference

Loss of Privileges

Virtual Drug Education Program I

Impact Lesson or project

Suspension of club/extra-curricular activities

Loss of Graduation Ceremony/Prom Suspension upon return to school

Long-term suspension/Expulsion


Please know that we are committed to ensuring that all our students feel safe and ready to learn and will be providing students guidance, resources and support. Thank you for your partnership in teaching our students behavioral expectations and standards of conduct while in a Virtual Learning Environment.
