DeKalb County School District seeks parent input on updated Code of Student Conduct

STONE MOUNTAIN, GA. – The DeKalb County School District (DCSD) invites all parents to provide input on student discipline as part of the 2018-2019 Code of Student Conduct – Student Rights and Responsibilities and Character Development Handbook.

Parents and community stakeholders are invited to browse the current Code of Student Conduct—located online at www.dekalbschoolsga.org/student-relations—and provide comments, suggestions and recommendations to DCSD’s Department of Student Relations.

The Department of Student Relations will take suggestions until Friday, April 27, 2018.

The Code of Student Conduct outlines policies, rules and regulations that govern student discipline in DCSD. This includes dress code, behavior, bus information, electronic devices, violence, threats, school personnel and more.

The Code of Student Conduct is intended to inform students at all schools of the types of behaviors deemed unacceptable. Students are taught and tested on the contents of the handbook each year.

Comments and recommendations may be sent to DCSD Student Relations Director Dr. Kishia Towns at kishia_k_towns@dekalbschoolsga.org. Suggestions can also be mailed in writing to the Department of Student Relations, 5823 Memorial Drive, Stone Mountain, GA, 30083.
