Student Rights and Responsibilities
A Handbook for Students and Their Families
A safe, secure and welcoming learning environment is essential to helping our students be successful learners. EPS has developed comprehensive policies and procedures that define student rights and responsibilities toward ensuring a positive learning environment for all. These expectations are outlined in the Student Rights and Responsibilities Handbook. It includes the district's K-12 Discipline Guidelines and summaries of the district's policies on hazing, administering medication, personal possessions and lockers, and harassment. The handbook is designed to help parents and students understand the district’s guidelines for acceptable behavior in all of these and other areas.
