Introduction: Working Together

This section of the handbook will assist in an understanding of discipline in Woodridge School District 68. The principal of each school will gladly supply any details requested by parents. It is suggested that parents read the handbook carefully and keep it at hand for ready reference. Individual schools may also have additional standards/rules governing specific behaviors.

Grounds for disciplinary action, including those described more thoroughly in Board Policy 5365: Student Discipline, apply whenever the student’s conduct is reasonably related to school or school activities, including, but not limited to:

  1. On, or within sight of, school grounds before, during, or after school hours or at any time;
  2. Off school grounds at a school-sponsored activity or event, or any activity or event that bears a reasonable relationship to school;
  3. Traveling to or from school or a school activity, function, or event; or
  4. Anywhere, if the conduct interferes with, disrupts, or adversely affects the school environment, school operations, or an educational function, including, but not limited to, conduct that may reasonably be considered to: (a) be a threat or an attempted intimidation of a staff member; or (b) endanger the health or safety of students, staff, or school property.

Parents are encouraged to share with the District any questions or concerns. By working together we can achieve the best possible education for your child.
