Code of Conduct
Kingman Unified School Board of Education is required by law (ARS §15-841) to ensure that “students shall comply with the policy, pursue the required course of studies, and submit to the authority of the teachers, school administrators and school board.” The law further states that “continued open defiance of authority, or habitual profanity and vulgarity, constitute good cause for expulsion.”
The Governing Board interprets the above statute to be that the administration and faculty are specifically directed not to tolerate disrespect, insubordination, or disobedience under any circumstances. Consistent with student’s due process rights, school authorities will discipline students based on the nature of the offense committed and the disciplinary history of the offender to preserve the good order and educational climate of the school.
