Behavior Standards and Code of Conduct
MPS District Policies and Documents:
Behavior Standards and Code of Conduct: Policy 5200;  Regulations 5200A and 5200B

The policy sets clear expectations, defines consistent responses and helps staff members find alternatives to suspensions, especially in early grades. The Behavior Levels help guide staff in determining appropriate responses to behaviors.  It also works to eliminate the disproportionate negative impact our current practices have on students of color and those who receive Special Education services. MPS engaged over 1,000 students, families and staff to develop the new discipline policy.
