Danbury School officials update Code of Conduct

An annual review of conduct codes at Danbury Schools has updated language about threats to the school population and also changes to bullying consequences. 

 

Deputy Superintendent Bill Glass says the minimum punishment for students found guilty of bullying is now a one day out-of-school suspension, which includes having a guardian meet with the principal.  Social media was also added to the definition of bullying incidences among middle schoolers.  He says cyber bullying has become an increasingly challenging area to deal with because of the saturation of technology.

 

Danbury schools have a whole separate policy about bullying and inappropriate behaviour on social media, which was updated a few years ago.

 

The threat policy was updated to be more general, not just bomb threats.  Glass says it could be anything from arson to false alarms.

 

The high school rules about truancy were updated.  One and two hours of detention for the first two times a student cuts class have been increased to one and two day in-school suspensions respectively.  A third skip will result in an out-of-school suspension with a parent conference.
