Civility - 4313

Mukilteo School District staff will treat parents and other members of the public with respect and expect the same in return. The District is committed to maintaining orderly educational and administrative processes to keep schools and administrative offices free from disruptions and preventing unauthorized persons from entering school/district grounds.

This policy promotes mutual respect, civility and orderly conduct among District employees, parents and the public. This policy is not intended to deprive any person of their right to freedom of expression, but to maintain a safe, harassment-free workplace for our students and staff.

In the interest of presenting District employees as positive role models to the children of this District, as well as the community, Mukilteo School District encourages positive communication, and discourages volatile, hostile or aggressive speech and/or actions. The District seeks public cooperation with this endeavor. The Superintendent will develop procedures for implementing this policy.
