Here at P.S. 255, we want students to be the best people they can be both inside and outside of the classroom.

The Discipline Code covers infractions and the range of possible disciplinary and other responses for grades K-5, plus how students/families can appeal decisions. You can also find the Student’s Bill of Rights and Responsibilities.
