CCSA Answers: Authority for Enforcing a Discipline Policy
Question: At our school, students who are excessively tardy or break the rules are assigned "Campus Beautification" or "CB." The student helps clean up the cafeteria or may be assigned to help serve, so "CB" duty has been an effective discipline tool for us. This policy is stated in our Student Handbook, which is signed by each parent and student upon enrollment. Most parents are supportive. However, a few parents have complained that "CB" duty humiliates their child. How much authority do we have to enforce our discipline policy?
