DCSD Seeks Parent Input on Code of Conduct

The DeKalb County School District is seeking input from parents on the 2014-2015 Code of Student Conduct ~ Student Rights and Responsibilities and Character Development Handbook.

The Code of Student Conduct Handbook outlines the policies, rules and regulations that govern student discipline in the District including dress code, behavior, bus information, electronic communication devices, violence against students, school personnel and other student responsibilities.

The Code of Student Conduct Handbook is intended to inform student in grades K – 12 of the types of behaviors that are unacceptable. Students are taught and tested on the contents of the handbook.

A copy of the current 2013-2014 Code of Student Conduct ~ Student Rights and Responsibilities and Character Development Handbook is available in all DeKalb schools and at www.dekalb.k12.ga.us/student-relations in English, Burmese, Nepali and Spanish.

    I want to develop a code of conduct for Palace employees. That is what DCSD really needs.

    Let’s pay Thurbert Baker 1000000 dollars to write one — oh we already did!

    Uniforms for students, teachers, and palaces employees. Palace employees are not allowed to wear the pink and green of their soriety colors, or their fraternity colors. No one should be given any preference in hiring or promotion due to their fraternal orders.

    Dekalb county will no longer promote any scholarship which discriminates against any racial group, religious group, our on the basis of sex in Dekalb county. This includes scholarships such as the Gates millennial scholarship which do not allow white students that are currently the minority group in Dekalb county from applying, and requiring higher standard of native and Alaskan Americans ( a Dawes or other tribal roll number from 1800) to be considered. The Turner and Gozetta scholarships. Dekalb county wants to make sure that all students entering have the possibility of obtaining all scholarships.

    The DCCS will make every effort to promote hiring within the district of employees in the Ratios they are within the county. Currently district employees do not reflect the diversity of the county.

    Starting in 2014 fall semester each free and reduced lunch application will be addicted on an 100 audit basis. A ..5 FTE position will be added per 1000 students to audit this and simultaneously verify that all home addresses are within the district of the school. This position shall include surprise home visits for compliance. Repayment will be sought for any fraudulent applications.

    Asst. Supt. cars will become pool cars that can be signed out on a first come, first serve basis. There are no take home cars.

    Preference in hiring will be made to residents of Dekalb County and It’s cities. Dekalb County is developing a plan to work with Dekalb County School System to provide homes from Dekalb county’s tax foreclosed inventory to be renovated and for sale to Dekalb Employees with a down payment forgiveness program.

    Just a few ideas.

    Why bother? Remember that these guys came out and wanted the input from the public on those so-called “flexbility” plans only to let everybody know at the Lakeside meeting that they had aready made their decision. People took time out of their evenings to attend these meetings beginning at 6:30 p.m. and forego their other plans. This was an insult to everyone who attended those meetings and bothered to provide their input. The DCSS owes the public a sincere apology for leading our residents to think that their input was welcome and would have an impact on any decisions. Now, I am convinced that they are going to do whatever they want to do regardless of what parents, residents, or anyone else from the community has to say. This is the very definition of arrogance and exhibits a profound disrespect for the public. Does any member of the school board really believe that it or this administration are building or restoring any respect of the public? Can anyone else give us any reason why we should give these people any more of our time?

    Howdy1942 is absolutely correct. We are owed many apologies.
