Dear Parents and Students: We are fortunate in the Killeen Independent School District to have thousands of students who demonstrate good behavior, exhibit diligent work ethic, and desire to attend schools in which they can reach their maximum learning potential. Policies and rules set forth in this document serve to guide student conduct and behavior to ensure a safe, orderly and inviting environment for students and employees so that students can indeed reach their full potential. Policies and guidelines outlined in this Student Code of Conduct provide students, parents and staff with expectations for behavior as well as consequences for Code of Conduct violations. For the very few students who choose to disregard Code of Conduct policies, progressive disciplinary action will be administered. A small number of students will not be afforded the opportunity to disrupt the learning environment for the overwhelming number of students who abide by the rules. Therefore, Code of Conduct policies will be strictly enforced by school officials and, when appropriate, by law enforcement officials. We are in the business of promoting student achievement, and we must not be distracted from this mission. Subsequently, it is essential that parents and students review these policies and expectations for student conduct. We believe that when the Code of Conduct is followed, schools are safer and conditions are set for student success. If you have questions or concerns, please contact the principal at your school. Parent/Guardian and Community partnerships are vital in ensuring an outstanding educational opportunity is provided to every student we serve. We are confident the 2017-2018 school year will be successful by all accounts, and we appreciate the support of our shareholders in advance. Sincerely,

John M. Craft, Ed.D. Superintendent of Schools Killeen Independent School District
