The Student Code of Conduct is designed to foster student responsibility, respect for others, and to
provide for the orderly operation of district schools. No code can be expected to list each and every
offense that may result in disciplinary action; however, it is the purpose of this code to list certain
offenses which, if committed by a student, will result in the imposition of a certain disciplinary
action. Any conduct not included herein, any aggravated circumstance of any offense, or any action
involving a combination of offenses may result in disciplinary consequences that extend beyond this
code of conduct as determined by the principal, superintendent and/or Board of Education. In
extraordinary circumstances where the minimum consequence is judged by the superintendent or
designee to be manifestly unfair or not in the interest of the district, the superintendent or designee
may reduce the consequences listed in this policy, as allowed by law. This code includes, but is not
necessarily limited to, acts of students on district property, including playgrounds, parking lots and
district transportation, or at a district activity, whether on or off district property. The district may
also discipline students for off-campus conduct that negatively impacts the educational environment,
to the extent allowed by law.
Reporting to Law Enforcement
It is the policy of the St. Charles R-VI School District to report all crimes occurring on district
property to law enforcement, including, but not limited to, the crimes the district is required to report
in accordance with law. A list of crimes the district is required to report is included in policy JGF.
The principal shall also notify the appropriate law enforcement agency and superintendent if a
student is discovered to possess a controlled substance or weapon in violation of the district's policy.
In addition, the superintendent shall notify the appropriate division of the juvenile or family court
upon suspension for more than ten (10) days or expulsion of any student who the district is aware
is under the jurisdiction of the court.
Documentation in Student's Discipline Record
The principal, designee or other administrators or school staff will maintain all discipline records
as deemed necessary for the orderly operation of the schools and in accordance with law and policy
Conditions of Suspension, Expulsion and Other Disciplinary Consequences
All students who are suspended or expelled, regardless of the reason, are prohibited from
participating in or attending any district-sponsored activity, or being on or near district property or
the location of any district activity for any reason, unless permission is granted by the superintendent
or designee. In addition, the district may prohibit students from participating in activities or restrict
a student's access to district property as a disciplinary consequence even if a student is not suspended
or expelled from school, if appropriate.
In accordance with law, any student who is suspended for any offenses listed in § 160.261, RSMo.,
or any act of violence or drug-related activity defined by policy JGF as a serious violation of school
discipline shall not be allowed to be within 1,000 feet of any district property or any activity of the
district, regardless of whether the activity takes place on district property, unless one (1) of the
following conditions exist:
1. The student is under the direct supervision of the student's parent, legal guardian, custodian
or another adult designated in advance, in writing, to the student's principal by the student's
parent, legal guardian or custodian, and the superintendent or designee has authorized the
student to be on district property.
