Discipline Code and Student Behavioral Contract

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

Discipline Code

The Discipline Code is also known as the Citywide Behavioral Expectations to Support Student Learning. It:

  • Is age-specific with one set for grades K-5 and another for grades 6-12.
  • Explains the standards for behavior in the New York City public schools
  • Describes supports, interventions, and disciplinary measures that schools can use when students misbehave
  • Explains how you can appeal decisions
  • Includes the Student’s Bill of Rights and Responsibilities
