It's official! We have moved to our new District website, now located at acpsd.net. Please take a moment to visit and explore our new online home for updated information on all items related to Aiken County Public Schools.
As a reminder, our individual school web pages will continue to link back to School Fusion (hosted at this site) until the start of the new school year when all school-related pages will make the transition to our new web platform.
Thank you for your continued interest in and support of Aiken County Public Schools, and welcome to acpsd.net! †
Discipline is administered in accordance with the provisions of the Code of Student Conduct, a copy of which is provided for each student at the beginning of school. We have good reason to be proud of the good behavior and respect for the rights of others that we see demonstrated by our students every day. We can also be proud of the cooperation we receive from parents when problems do arise. Most of these problems are relatively minor and are handled by the classroom teacher. Each teacher has a Classroom Discipline Plan which states the class rules and the consequences which occur when rules are broken. The rules and consequences are posted in each classroom and teachers send copies of the plans home with students at the beginning of school.
Violations of the Code of Student Conduct which affect the physical safety or welfare of others are considered serious and will lead quickly to corrective measures, including suspension from school. Such violations include physical abuse, threats, fighting, bullying, biting, throwing objects, or any other behavior which occurs without regard for the safety or welfare of others.
There have been several cases in the District in which students who brought weapons to school were expelled for the remainder of the school year. Our Board of Education has demonstrated a determination to take a firm stand on this matter. Students who bring weapons to school are likely to be expelled.
If your child brings home a discipline form, please sign and return it to the school on the next day.
