Code of Conduct
The Canandaigua City School District Code of Conduct sets forth the rights and responsibilities of students, parents, and public conduct on school property. It outlines a range of disciplinary measures established to respond to student or public misconduct.
The Code of Conduct is governed by New York State's SAVE legislation and regulations promulgated by the state Commissioner of Education.
The Board of Education unanimously adopted a revised District Code of Conduct at its August 31, 2020 meeting following a public hearing (which is required by state law). The Code of Conduct is reviewed each year and changes are made if appropriate. The Code of Conduct adopted in August, 2018, remains in force until any changes are made.
Extra-Curricular Code of Conduct
The primary mission of the school district is the development of academic skills: In supporting this mission, all students are required to demonstrate acceptable levels of academic progress throughout the duration of the Extra-Curricular Activity in which they participate.
The District desires to maximize the educational success and the character development of all students and to prepare them to become contributing, productive citizens. The Extra-Curricular Code of Conduct, and the academic eligibility policy in particular, support this mission. The primary goal of this academic eligibility policy is to identify academic problems as early as possible and encourage students to take advantage of extra help opportunities.
Academic Eligibility for students participating in Extra-Curricular Activities will be reviewed periodically. Academic eligibility should be reviewed approximately every two (2) weeks, as determined by the District. For purposes of this Academic Eligibility Policy, a student’s grade in each particular course shall be reviewed and monitored.
