MAJOR SCHOOL RULES/GUIDING PRINCIPLES
SRCS assumes that all students will strive daily to demonstrate character, scholarship, and leadership. SRCS students have rights, privileges, and responsibilities as members of the school community. Students’ rights and privileges are dependent upon fulfillment of their responsibilities. Students are expected to behave at all times in a manner that contributes positively to the welfare of the SRCS community.
SRCS students agree to abide by four guiding school principles: honesty, respect, responsibility, and safety. Should a student choose to violate this agreement, it will be considered a very serious offense and can lead to detention, suspension, disciplinary probation, and/or dismissal.
Rule #1: HONESTY
Be honest and trustworthy.
Students are expected to act with integrity at all times. Academic integrity is essential to the growth of the students and the health of the school. Lying or intentionally misleading another for personal gain or to avoid penalties cannot be condoned in a community based upon trust. Stealing and cheating cut at the heart of trust and a sense of community.
Rule #2: RESPECT
Respect oneself and be respectful of all people, property, and the environment.
Respect is a hallmark of SRCS. It includes fostering appreciation, understanding, and tolerance for individual and cultural differences. It also refers to acts of courtesy, cooperation, and sportsmanship. There is no place at SRCS for harassment, vandalism, or littering. Students are expected to be stewards of the environment.
Rule #3: RESPONSIBILITY
Meet all responsibilities and obligations.
SRCS students are expected to fulfill all commitments inside and outside of the classroom. Students are personally accountable for their choices. Students are encouraged to make wise decisions, cognizant of the consequences for self and others.
Rule #4: SAFETY
Be safe by making wise choices.
SRCS is concerned for the well-being, health, and welfare of its students. The school is committed to educating its students about the dangers of drugs, alcohol, and violent behavior. Use of, possession of, or association with alcohol, non-prescribed drugs, tobacco products, or weapons is prohibited at school and school functions.
