The Board renewed the Code of Conduct on July 7, as one item in a consent agenda.

The entire board has now ratified:

  • Contacting police for all “electronic media crime”
  • Failing to inform students or parents what an “electronic media crime” is and how severely it will be punished by our current superintendent
  • Requiring students to apprise themselves of due process
  • Questioning students concerning infractions that will result in severe punishment without informing parents
  • Questioning students concerning infractions that will result in severe punishment without an advocate present

The entire board has opted to set no limits on:

  • The number of hours a student can be held for questioning (nearly 3 hours for one middle-school student in ‘computergate’)
  • The leveling of threats of permanent expulsion during questioning in order to obtain confessions or evidence against other students
