Student Code of Ethics – Statement of Philosophy

A firm belief in the need for discipline in our schools and a desire to make enforcement of discipline more uniform across our school system are the motivational factors behind the creation of this code. This disciplinary code for Warwick’s public schools is rooted in two philosophical beliefs. First, because no learning can take place in an atmosphere of chaos or fear, a safe and orderly environment must be guaranteed to all students. Second, discipline in our schools should reinforce the following values: responsibility, dependability, truthfulness, promptness, respect for authority and property, honesty, and willingness to accept the consequences for one’s actions. This code will benefit both the Warwick Public Schools and the young people it serves. With schools operating in an atmosphere of high disciplinary expectations, the energies of all parties will be properly focused upon academics and academic achievement. It is the policy of the Warwick Public Schools not to discriminate on the basis of age, sex, race, religion, national origin, color, disability or sexual orientation in its education services, activities, employment practices and to provide equal access to the Boy Scouts and other designated youth groups as required by Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended; Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972; and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended. Any concerns or complaints about claims of discrimination on the basis of age, sexual orientation, race, religion, national origin, color, or disability in accordance with applicable laws and regulations, may be reported to Sara Monaco, Ed.D, the Title 9 officer, at 734-3120 or to Phillip D. Thornton, Ed.D, Superintendent of Schools, at 734-3100, for all other matters.
