Good Conduct Policy – Updated 2016 – Fall
Extracurricular activities are an integral part of the total educational opportunity for all students. The right to participate is open to all students. However, once students make a commitment to participate in an extracurricular activity, the right becomes a privilege. When the students are granted this privilege, they accept the responsibility of following behavior guidelines outlined in policies and rules established for administration of the extracurricular programs. Because the participants represent the school community of Johnston in extracurricular activities, they are expected to adhere to even more stringent and demanding behavior codes than non-participating students.
Code of Conduct
Students who participate in extra-curricular and co-curricular activities serve as ambassadors of the Johnston Community School District throughout the calendar year, whether at or away from school. Students who wish to exercise the privilege of participating in extra-curricular or co-curricular activities must conduct themselves in accordance with board policy and must refrain from activities that are illegal, unhealthy, or highly inappropriate.
