Written By: Robert Cox

NEW ROCHELLE, NY — The New Rochelle Board of Education will hold a hearing on a revised Code of Conduct prepared by the board’s subcommittee of the Solutions to Suspension Task Force. The subcommittee was organized in October 2015 for the purpose of reviewing and revising the Code of Conduct to emphasize the promotion of positive behavioral expectations; the prevention of discipline problems; the use of interventions to support students; and a more limited use of out-of-school suspensions, in-school suspensions, and teacher removals from class.

The hearing will take place at the Linda E. Kelly Theater, New Rochelle High School, 265 Clove Road (entrance from Braemar Avenue, off North Avenue). The hearing is scheduled for Tuesday June 21st at 7 p.m.
