J.09 Student Discipline - April 2001 Revision

Note: This policy was reviewed and revised in November 2010. We provide this revision for historic purposes only. Please refer to the current policy.

The primary goal of discipline in the Albuquerque Public Schools is to provide and maintain a safe, just, affirmative, and appropriately challenging environment that promotes learning and positive personal growth. Disciplinary measures will be aimed toward assisting each student in the development of self-control, social responsibility, and the acceptance of appropriate consequences for his or her actions. Administrators will utilize the progressive discipline procedures and options specified in the APS Student Behavior Handbook.

Parental involvement in matters of school discipline is encouraged. Parents will be advised of disciplinary measures taken in order to elicit their understanding and support. A record of disciplinary actions taken by the principal will be kept at the school.

Corporal punishment, which is defined as any disciplinary action taken by school personnel with the intention of producing physical pain, will not be used as a disciplinary measure in the Albuquerque Public Schools.
