It is the intention of the Charter School Institute Board that the GVA-N school helps students achieve maximum development of individual knowledge, skills and competence and that they learn behavior patterns which will enable them to be responsible, contributing members of society.

The Board in accordance with state law directs all Institute Charter Schools to adopt a written student conduct and discipline code based upon the principle that every student is expected to follow accepted rules of conduct and to show respect for and to obey persons in authority.

1.5.The teacher is allowed to remove a disruptive student from his/her classroom and send the student to a different classroom to work on assigned classwork. Upon the third removal from a teacher’s classroom, the teacher may remove the disruptive student from his/her class for the remainder of the term of the class; except that the disruptive student shall not be removed from the teacher’s classroom for the remainder of the term of the class unless the principal or designee has developed and implemented a behavior plan for the student.
