In order to ensure a safe, productive and positive learning environment, MCPS publishes two documents that help students, parents, and staff understand school rules and regulations; the expectations for student conduct; and the possible consequences for violating the rules.  A Student's Guide to Rights and Responsibilities is an overview of the rights and responsibilities students enjoy in MCPS and a summary of the laws and regulations that affect students  The MCPS Code of Conduct provides an overview of discipline procedures and protocols and the range of consequences students could face for violating various policies, regulations, and rules.  The guide also discusses the MCPS philosophy to discipline.  All families received a copy of these documents and are encouraged to review them with your child(ren).  The documents are available online at www.montgomeryschoolsmd.org/students/rights/.
