Student Rights & Responsibilities
Northshore believes that the fundamental purpose of the school system is to provide educational opportunities for youth. If this purpose is to be achieved effectively, a satisfactory learning environment must be established and maintained. The district also believes that all students have the right to free inquiry and expression, due process, peaceful assembly, equal educational opportunity and freedom from discrimination. In exercising these and other rights, each must respect the rights, privileges, and welfare of others. The Rights and Responsibilities Handbook presents the statement of rights and responsibilities is intended to help accomplish the educational purposes of the district.
The Rights & Responsibilities Handbook Concerning Student Conduct prohibits the misuse or inappropriate use of technology (including Web sites and e-mail) that interferes with or disrupts the educational process.
