To provide a positive learning environment for students and staff, Broughton High School must be safe and orderly, students must be given clear expectations for appropriate behavior in school, and fair discipline practices must be followed. To support these objectives, Broughton High School follows the Wake County Public Schools' Code of Conduct for students and due process requirements for imposing out-of school suspensions.
All students shall comply with the Code of Student Conduct of the Wake County Public School System, state and federal laws, school board policies, and Broughton High School rules governing student behavior and conduct. This code applies to any student who is on school property, who is in attendance at school or at any school-sponsored activity, or whose conduct at any time, place, or cyberspace, on or off campus, has or is reasonably expected to have a direct and immediate impact on the orderly and efficient operation of the school or safety of individuals in the school environment.
Students are expected to be familiar with all rules of behavior in the Code of Student Conduct. Students are to assist in promoting a safe and orderly school environment. The academic and social expectations for students at BHS are high. Respect for instructional time, the faculty, and all students are essential to an atomosphere that is conducive to learning. Students are expected to display appropriate behavior at all times, including in classrooms, hallways, restrooms, the cafeteria, the gym, parking lots, on buses, and at bus stops as well as in the areas around campus. Remember, all staff members have authority over students regardless of place, and students are expected to respect this authority at all times.
