Snider High School Discipline
Both regular and special education students are subject to disciplinary procedures which promote positive behavioral change and/or ensure the well-being of others. The goal is to have all students function successfully in their educational and social environments and to protect fellow students, school staff members, and public property, as well as themselves.
Disciplinary procedures that affect students identified as needing special education services will be administered in compliance with federal and state laws. A manifestation determination cause conference will be scheduled if disciplinary charges recommending expulsion are filed.
Progressive steps of discipline
If in judgment of the principal/designee, based on the age of the student and/or nature of the offense, an alternative consequence is satisfactory to resolve the offense, the principal/designee has the authority to develop an appropriate alternative disciplinary consequence under a written contract with the parent, student, and the teacher as appropriate. The principal must approve the written contract for an alternative consequence. This written contract will be retained in the administrative office.
If the student violates the law the FWCS security office will be contacted for assistance. The police department may be involved depending on the severity of the offense. Parents will also be contacted if possible.
