Fairfax County School Board to Review Discipline Topics
The Fairfax County School Board agreed at its February 24 work session to review topics related to student discipline procedures. This review could produce changes to the Student Responsibilities and Rights regulation and handbook.
“We believe that in order to ensure a thorough review, the Board needs sufficient time to explore our discipline policies and procedures,” said Kathy Smith, chairman of the Fairfax County School Board. “We will schedule work sessions over the next three months to examine our values on student discipline and possibly recommend changes to the process.”
Meetings will be announced on the Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) website at www.fcps.edu.
