Student Code of Conduct
In order to teach the primary goal of quality education for all students, a positive learning climate must be evident. To support the Sun Valley High School community in creating this climate, a comprehensive system of discipline exists to be effective in reducing discipline problems. The Sun Valley High School Code of Conduct contains reasonable rules aligned with Sun Valley High School Board Policies. Students are encouraged to assume responsibility for their behavior and to refine their ability to recognize right from wrong and act accordingly. Each student’s rights, as well as those of the entire school community, to participate in and conduct the instructional program must be respected. Appropriate behavior is critical in order to create a healthy and safe school environment.
Students are responsible for their behavior on school grounds, at bus stops, during travel on school district buses, and at school-sponsored activities off school property. To increase school climate and make students more successful, Sun Valley uses a PRIDE motto based on positive behavioral support. Find the PBS Matrix for students here.
