HUNTSVILLE, Ala. - Thursday night the Huntsville City Schools introduced new documents to replace the current Code of Student Conduct.

The superintendent commissioned a group of teachers and principals to create these documents after multiple complaints from parents and teachers in the system. The group created new student discipline documents, the Behavioral Learning Guides, with a goal of supporting teachers, students and principals. The main goal of The Behavioral Learning Guide is to provide Huntsville City School students clearly defined and expected behaviors and consequences for inappropriate student conduct.

It also gives teachers and principals a guideline on how to correct inappropriate student behaviors while maintaining a strong learning environment.

Friday, Huntsville City Schools will release copies of the Behavioral Learning Guides to the public with instructions for providing input. They will receive input about the comments until May 6, 2016. Once all the comments are reviewed, updated versions of the documents will be presented to the Board of Education for approval.

If the documents are approved, they will go into effect for the 2016-2017 school year.
