The Board of Education of Charles County expects the guidelines and procedures outlined in the Code of Student Conduct to be fairly and equitably applied to all students.
The publication of the Code of Student Conduct meets the requirement of the State Board of Education Bylaw (COMAR 13A.08.01.11), which states that each county board of education must adopt a set of rules and regulations designed to maintain order and discipline necessary for effective learning to take place. The main concern of the Board of Education of Charles County is that a safe and orderly environment conducive to learning be maintained and that those students trying to learn might do so free of the influence of those who would disrupt that safe and orderly environment.
This Code of Student Conduct is an effort to standardize procedures designed to guarantee the equal rights of every student enrolled in Charles County Public Schools and at the same time clearly define the reasonable expectation that every student accepts responsibility for practicing acceptable behavior.
Each public school in Charles County has a responsibility to develop rules and regulations for that individual school. These school rules are published and explained in a school handbook that is made available to every student enrolled in the school.
If you have any questions, please call your school principal or the Director of Student Services, 301-392-7510 or 301-870-3814.
