It's official! We have moved to our new District website, now located at acpsd.net. Please take a moment to visit and explore our new online home for updated information on all items related to Aiken County Public Schools.
As a reminder, our individual school web pages will continue to link back to School Fusion (hosted at this site) until the start of the new school year when all school-related pages will make the transition to our new web platform.
Thank you for your continued interest in and support of Aiken County Public Schools, and welcome to acpsd.net!

Authority of Staff
†††† School administration, teachers, and staff members are vested with legal authority, given to them by the state and local school board.† Students and parents are expected to be familiar with the Aiken County Public Schools Code of Student Conduct, which is provided to all students and is also found on the Aiken County Schools website.

Behavioral Code of Conduct
Follow these three simple rules:†
1) Be in the right place, right time, doing the right thing!
2) Treat others as you would like to be treated.
3) Think before you act!

School Expectations
1) Be courteous and adhere to common decency.
2) Arrive at school and to class on time and prepared.
3) Appropriately use and care for the school facility.
4) Cooperate with your peers and the school staff.

†††† The discipline policies foster an environment that promotes the total education of the student.† With the cooperation of parents, students, and faculty, the discipline system serves as a positive element in providing such an environment.



Consequences
†††† Failing to follow the code of conduct may include:

1. Warning(s) may be issued in some situations; however, students are responsible for knowing and following school policies and procedures.

2.† Conference(s) may be required in which the student, parents, and administration meet to resolve discipline issues.†

3. † Detention is assigned for minor discipline violations and held after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays.† Students who are assigned detention have 24 hours to notify parents.† No exceptions to serving after-school detention will be made due to work or transportation issues.†

4. † In-School Suspension (ISS) is assigned for violations of school policies.† Students attend school and are provided school assignments, but they are not permitted to attend regular classes.†

5. † Out-Of-School Suspension (OSS) is a severe consequence and typically administered for serious or repeated inappropriate behaviors.† OSS may be assigned one to ten days.†

6. † Expulsion is a recommendation for permanent removal from the school, for the remainder of the year.† Generally, four suspensions or a minimum of ten suspension days will result in a recommendation for expulsion.

7. † Arrest is in order when a studentís actions are considered criminal in nature.
