PITTSBURGH, PA March 20, 2017 –– Superintendent Anthony Hamlet plans to engage with students, families, staff and the community on the District’s Code of Student Conduct at three community forums. Several sections of the Code of Student Conduct, which outlines the expectations for student behavior in school, at school sponsored activities and on District transportation, are subject to change for the 2017-2018 school year.
“It is important that our decision-making process include the voices of the public, specifically our students, parents and families who play an essential role in creating positive and supportive school cultures.” said Dr. Hamlet. “I am confident that these community forums will provide constructive platform for all voices to be heard as it pertains to the Code of Student Conduct.”
In order to foster a positive school-wide culture and climate in every school and accelerate approaches to discipline that are progressive and restorative, the District wants to hear from students, families, teachers, administrators, community agencies, and other interested stakeholders. The public is encouraged to share their feedback to shape recommendations to the Board of Directors in April.
Over the next two weeks, the District will hold three community forums to gain feedback on the District’s Code of Student Conduct:
Wednesday, March 22, 2017, 7:00–9:00PM
Pittsburgh Obama (515 N. Highland Avenue, Pittsburgh, PA 15206)
Thursday, March 30, 2017, 4:00–6:00PM

Wednesday, April 5, 2017, 7:00–9:00PM
