August 16 Board of Education meeting includes public hearing on Code of Conduct

The Niskayuna Board of Education will hold its next meeting on Tuesday, August 16, in the Board Room at the District Office. The meeting will begin at 6 p.m. and include a public hearing on revisions to the Code of Conduct for each level and the Athletic Code of Conduct.

The Board Policy Committee as well as administrators, high school students, parents and staff members spent time reviewing the codes this spring and summer. Many of the proposed changes are intended to clarify existing expectations and procedures through each document.

Revisions under consideration include:

  • Changes in the elementary and middle school codes provide consistency with updates already made to the High School Code of Conduct as part of last year's review;
  • Clarification of existing expectations for the acceptable use of electronic devices, particularly at the high school level; and
  • Additional language in Athletic Code of Conduct about expectations for student-athletes and spectators as relates to drugs, alcohol and tobacco, as well as the process for reporting, investigating, determining and tracking alleged violations of the Athletic Code.


Please the links below to view each document with the changes under consideration.
