The Walled Lake Consolidated School District believes in the development of each student’s potential for learning in a positive, orderly, and safe school environment. To help each student reach that potential, it is necessary for schools to be free of disruptions that interfere with teaching and learning activities. Students, parents and staff must assume a responsible role in promoting behavior that encourages learning and develops individual potential; just as discipline procedures are necessary in order to protect the rights of each member of the school community, effective student discipline can only be achieved if there is cooperation and shared commitment among students, parents and staff. The school district has the right to have disorderly and/or disrespectful individuals removed from the school setting.
The Athletic, Student Conduct Code, and Transportation Handbooks are an official declaration of policy of the Walled Lake Board of Education. These provisions apply to all students in grades pre-K-12. Differences in age and maturity are recognized and will be considered when determining intervention strategies or disciplinary actions to be taken.
For specific questions, please e-mail the Deputy Superintendent of Schools, Christopher Delgado.
