School District Rules

The philosophy and policies of Mukilteo School District respect and protect the general rights of all students and parents/guardians. These policies establish certain student rights and corresponding responsibilities within our educational framework. These expectations are in effect at all events sponsored by Mukilteo School District, including after-school and off-campus events, and on District transportation and transportation loading areas. 

When students do not adhere to the three basic District rules, and the rules of their specific building, the District will use discipline strategies described later in this document.  In our endeavor to focus on academic and social growth, all staff will follow a process for positively directing students in behavior change at each level of discipline. Our goal is to help students to be responsible, self-disciplined individuals.

Student Responsibilities

Mukilteo School District believes that students can learn and can be taught to manage their own behavior. With that belief, the District has established three general rules of conduct that guide the behavior of students.

Students will:

  • Respect the rights and property of themselves and others.
  • Behave in a manner that creates a positive learning environment.
  • Respect the health and safety of others.

Individual schools and classrooms may develop more specific rules for students. These rules will also be consistent with Board policy and philosophy.

District Responsibilities

To implement our commitment to the development of student academic and social growth through the process of providing opportunities and developing self-discipline and individual responsibility in a positive way.

  • Demonstrate respectful, positive attitudes.
  • Define and consistently hold high academic and behavioral expectations.
  • Model consistent, appropriate behavior.
  • Maintain student dignity and self-esteem.
  • Create an atmosphere of respect for all.
  • Vary the time for learning according to individual student needs and the complexity of the task.
  • Provide opportunities for success in academic and social growth.
