Code of Behavior

Maintaining an environment where every student will graduate on time with the knowledge, skills, and habits of mind necessary to create a thriving future for themselves and their community requires clear responsibilities, expectations, and rules that apply primarily to students, but also guide the behavior of parents, teachers, and school employees. These are addressed in detail in Prince William County Public Schools' Policy and Administrative manuals and are summarized in the online Code of Behavior.
