General DOE Resources: 

  • NYCDOE Discipline Code
    • The Discipline Code is also known as the Citywide Behavioral Expectations to Support Student Learning. 
      • It Is age-specific with one set for grades K-5 and another for grades 6-12.
      • Explains the standards for behavior in the New York City public schools
      • Describes supports, interventions, and disciplinary measures that schools can use when students misbehave
      • Explains how you can appeal decisions
      • Includes the Student’s Bill of Rights and Responsibilities
  • Rules for Digital Citizenship
    • Both parents and teachers need to help students be good digital citizens. They both need to support students in using the internet in ways that are safe, responsible, and appropriate. They also help students follow the rules and act in ways that lead to effective digital learning.
  • Respect for All
    • Respect for All is our system-wide response to the bullying and harassment. We are committed to keeping our schools safe, supportive, and free from discrimination.

  • Emergency Readiness
    • Schools train and drill all staff and students in the General Response Protocol, which describes what to do in an Evacuation, Shelter-In, or Lockdown. The training is tailored for different grade levels so that students aren’t upset by the information.
