South Bend Schools hosting meetings about new behavior expectations
SOUTH BEND, Ind. -- The South Bend Community School Corporation will be hosting four community meetings to familiarize parents and students with the district's replacement for the Code of Conduct.
The meetings will be held
- Monday, August 9 at 6:00 p.m. at Martin’s Supermarket, 525 S. Mayflower Road
- Tuesday, August 10 at 6:00 p.m. at the Greater Friendship Missionary Baptist Church, 206 S. Falcon St.
- Wednesday, August 11 at 10:00 a.m. at the Brown Community Learning Center, 737 Beale St. (Masks are required inside the Brown Community Learning Center)
- Wednesday, August 11 at 6:00 p.m. -- Virtual meeting via Facebook Live.
The meetings will introduce families to the district's new Shared Rights and Responsibilities set of expectations for student behavior. It is designed to be less punitive than the Code of Conduct.
The district says the new set of expectations focus on the importance of correcting inappropriate behavior while also repairing the harm caused by the behavior.
