South Bend Schools to hold additional community meetings on Code of Conduct

COC Meetings

In an effort to identify and address parent, student, teacher, or community concerns with the South Bend Community School Corporation’s (SBCSC) Code of Conduct, school leaders are holding four additional community meetings on Tuesday, March 30 and Thursday, April 1. The meetings will be held in-person at the Brown Community Learning Center (formerly Brown Intermediate Center) in South Bend, and can be simultaneously accessed online via Google Meet.

Meetings on both days will be held from 10:00 - 11:00 a.m. and from 6:00-7:00 p.m. Hot breakfasts will be available to all attendees at the morning sessions, and pizza at the evening sessions. Parents, students, teachers, staff, and community members are welcome.

Pre-registration is required by emailing ssavannah@sb.school.

The Code of Conduct sets out a comprehensive set of expectations for students’ behaviors in and out of school. The Code also outlines the role of appropriate discipline in achieving quality education for every student every day and strengthening the school community.

Organizers of the meetings seek to determine attendees’ familiarity with the Code of Conduct as well as their experiences with it. A survey will also be available at the meetings. The information gathered will help the corporation identify issues with the current Code of Conduct and provide corporation leadership with the means to address those issues.

The Corporation held four in-person meetings last week, as well as four virtual meetings this week. The additional in-person meetings will also include a brief presentation by the Corporation’s Student Services staff.
