Council held its open forum last night about the disciplinary reach of the school. The current policy reads,
“Whether under the Academy’s or your parents’ jurisdiction, if your behavior jeopardizes the welfare or reputation of the Academy, you may be subject to disciplinary action.”
We want to change the word to “damages”—since “jeopardizes” is too broad—
and to have it explicitly stated that the school is obligated to act when alerted to such behavior by an outside source.
We’re bringing these edits to the deans today.
We also discussed how to recognize those students whose “heroic” actions Mr. Emerson touched on last week.
Upcoming: the launch of our new WEBSITE, discussion of a student review of new teachers, school meeting restructuring, an all-student DC.
Be in touch!
