Discipline Policy

Follow the Rules While in School


Discipline Policy
The School District of Philadelphia’s Code of Student Conduct drives Finletter’s discipline policy.  The purpose of this discipline policy is to share appropriate behavior, develop self-control in students and teach students to take responsibility of their own actions.  In addition, our goal is to maintain a safe and orderly environment conducive to learning.  Zero tolerance for physical confrontations, and bullying or harassment will be exercised.

Finletter focuses on reducing and preventing recurrences of inappropriate behaviors, teaching students to manage their behavior in appropriate ways, and cultivating new behaviors that are necessary for learning.  Parents will be involved at the onset of inappropriate behavior to ensure high standards of discipline.  Please review the Student Code of Conduct with your child.  Of particular concern is the possession of electronic devices including but not excluded to:  cell phones, MPS players, electronic hand-held toys, CD players, etc. Click here to view the policy.
