8450 – Student Discipline


Realizing that appropriate discipline varies from situation to situation, the Grand Island Public Schools recognizes that discipline in the school is extremely important to the school program. Discipline should be positive rather than negative in nature. Discipline should foster student growth while assuring an acceptable environment in which to learn. Discipline should be considered a means of teaching and as such disciplinary efforts should be as positive as is practical. Giving credit or recognition for appropriate behavior, setting appropriate examples for students, application of conditions for learning, counseling, and involvement of parents are to be expected. Measures such as exclusion from classes or from the educational setting are to be used only as last alternatives.

Any disciplinary action will be applied fairly and consistently regardless of race, color, religion, national origin, ethnicity, age, sex or gender, sexual orientation, disability, pregnancy, childbirth or related medical condition, marital status or other prohibited status. Disciplinary action will not conflict with provisions of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA).
