Purpose

WAC 72‑120‑200 POLICY.  The Washington State School for the Blind has established standards of conduct for students and the disci­plinary process to protect members of the school community, maintain and advance its educational mission, and provide for the orderly conduct of the school's activities.  Disciplinary proce­dures used by the school are considered part of its educational process.  In every case of misconduct, the nature and circumstances of the violation will be considered and appropriate disciplinary actions will be administered on a less restrictive alternative basis including but not limited to time out, detention, behavior contracts, restriction of privileges, reprimand, restitution, or suspension.

Every student and parent must sign off on an Account Authorization Form as a condition for using WSSB Network. This compliance with the WSSB Technology Ethics Regulations establishes that any violation of the regulations is unethical and may constitute a criminal offense.  Should any violations be committed, access privileges may be revoked and disciplinary action may be taken.

School policy and rules of conduct shall be applicable to all students in any program or activity conducted by the Washington State School for the Blind.  Rules and procedures will be developed which govern the conduct of students on school premises or off school premises at any school‑sponsored activities to protect the health and safety of individuals and property, and to insure that a proper learning environment prevails in the classroom.
