About the Book

The Discipline Code exists to maintain order and decorum in NYC public schools. The Code sets a standard of conduct for students in kindergarten through grade 5 and grade 6-12. The Discipline Code is used in the NYC school system as a guideline to reprimand or discipline students who break the Code’s rules. This book will explain, break down, and teach the Code using visual aids, unique characters, and short situation scenarios. The book will focus on the Code infractions that affect middle school students the most. These infractions are simplified in terms that a middle school student will understand. It explains the various disciplinary responses to most infractions. None of the explanations uses violent or profane terminology, and no disturbing graphics are used.
