Student Issues

2022-23 Model Student Code of Conduct, Extracurricular Code of Conduct and Handbook
Full Version - Retainer District Details

School districts are met with the difficult task of creating comprehensive policies and procedures that address a broad range of possibilities when it comes to student disciplinary issues and parental concerns. The thought of keeping up with each and every legislative and regulatory change can be daunting for a school district with limited resources, but we’ve got you covered here at EWHPM. Our Models are the result of over 200 hours of dedicated research and drafting by our experienced legal team—so you can do your job with fewer headaches all while improving parent understanding of the policies that apply to their student.

Our user-friendly Models are written in a conversational tone and are designed for districts to personalize and tailor to meet the specific needs of their campuses. For example, we highlight the areas where we encourage you to incorporate local procedures, show you what can be modified without violating the law, and suggest optional language meant to maximize practicability.

Special Features of our Model Student Code of Conduct include:

  • List of prohibited behaviors includes not only recurring problems, but also unlikely situations that only one district may have encountered
  • Organized in logical sequence so parents and students can easily see the relationship between conduct rules and disciplinary consequences
  • Addresses all the procedures, steps, and timelines for DAEP removal and expulsion, all necessary definitions from the Penal Code, other useful definitions such as "possession," "use," and "under the influence," “serious offenses,” and “persistent misbehavior”
  • A streamlined appeals process that permits written appeals only, unless the administrator or board, after reviewing the record, wishes to offer a personal audience and face-to-face conference

Special Features of our Model Extracurricular Code of Conduct include:

  • Provides a thorough and comprehensive definition of the term "extracurricular activity"
  • Sections include jurisdiction, prohibited conduct, and disciplinary actions that coordinate with one another into one easy to understand document
  • Provides necessary revisions to sections governing off-campus student speech in response to the United States Supreme Court’s recent groundbreaking decision in Mahanoy Area School District v. B.L.
  • Highlighted areas that require district-specific input that enables the Code to meet the unique needs of the community and district

Features of our Model Student Handbook include:

  • Carefully organized by topic to make it easier for parents and students to better understand how different rules and policies will apply to them
  • Information that answers all of your questions, including but not limited to picking up children at school, attendance and credit for course work, student searches, extracurricular activities, class ranking and selection of valedictorian and salutatorian, graduation issues, parent visits to school and expected conduct, and no district liability for injuries or property loss or damage at school
  • Expanded table of contents
  • Contains all required legal notices for compliance with state and federal laws

Custody Chart - General Education
Details

Often times school personnel are placed in the middle of disagreements between divorced parents about their child's education. Other times, children live with relatives or other non-parent adults who claim to "have custody" or be the "guardian." We have translated the complicated Texas Family Code into a laminated easy-to-use chart to assist administrators and teachers in determining who has the right to make decisions regarding a child's education. For example, you will be able to determine if a divorced parent, stepparent, or other family member is entitled to:

  • Enroll or withdraw a student from school
  • Request that the student be tested for special education services
  • Give permission for field trips
  • Attend school meetings
  • Receive official school notices
  • Have access to educational records
  • Consult with school officials
  • Assert the parental rights enumerated in Chapter 26 of the Tex. Educ. Code
  • Prohibit other parents, stepparents, or family members from being involved in a child's education

Custody Chart - Special Education
Details

The Texas Family Code lays out a complicated set of rules regarding parental rights. We have taken the Family Code and the IDEA and broken it down into an easy-to-use chart to assist special education staff in determining who has the right to participate and /or make decisions. For example, you will be able to determine if a parent, guardian, surrogate parent, foster parent, other family member or advocate is entitled to:

  • Receive written notice to attend an ARD meeting
  • Receive a copy of a student's records
  • Request a due process hearing

Answers to these and other difficult questions are on our legal size chart. Footnoted explanations are on the flip side.
