Each school district adopts policies, consistent with state laws, that describe which behaviors are and are not acceptable. Some examples could include fighting, bullying, failure to cooperate, or violating alcohol prohibitions. Students, parents, and families must be involved when districts develop and update their policies, and the policies must be available to the public. OSPI supports students, families, and schools with student discipline by making rules, providing technical support, maintaining resources, and monitoring schools for compliance with the law.
