2019-2020 Student Handbook & Student Code of Conduct

Welcome to the 2019-2020 school year!


Education is a team effort, and students, parents, teachers, and other staff members working together can make this a successful year.


The La Vega publishes two handbooks; Elementary Student Handbook and the Secondary Schools Student Handbook. The Elementary Student Handbook is a general reference guide for students in grades Pre-Kindergarten - Grade 6 while the Secondary Schools Student Handbook covers grades 7-12. The handbooks are divided into two sections:


Section I: Parental Rights will help you respond to school-related issues regarding curriculum and the school environment.


Section II: Other Important Information for Parents and Students is organized alphabetically by topic. Where applicable, it is divided by age and/or grade level.


The Student Handbook is designed to align with board policy and the Student Code of Conduct, a board-adopted document intended to promote school safety and an atmosphere for learning. The Student Handbook is not meant to be a complete statement of all policies, procedures, or rules in any given circumstance.


The Student Code of Conduct provides methods and options for managing students in the classroom and on school grounds, 

This Code provides information to parents and students regarding standards of conduct, consequences of misconduct, and procedures for administering discipline. It remains in effect during summer school and at all school-related events and activities outside the school year until an updated version adopted by the board becomes effective for the next school year.

This Student Code of Conduct has been adopted by the La Vega I. S. D. Board of Trustees and developed with the advice of the district-level committee.
