Student Handbooks

Student handbooks have been prepared to enable students and their parents/guardians to know and understand the procedures, policies and regulations of Derby Public Schools. It is not intended to be an all-inclusive listing of rules and regulations. Items that fall outside those listed in these handbooks will be handled at administrative discretion. Significant changes to procedures, protocols, or items included in this handbook may be communicated electronically.

The school is a community, and the rules of the school are the laws of that community. All those enjoying the rights of citizenship in the school community must accept the responsibilities of citizenship. A basic responsibility of those who enjoy these rights is to respect the laws of the community. Provision of the civil and criminal law that applies to the conduct of juveniles and minors also extends into our schools.

Every effort will be made to recognize the human dignity and worth of each individual student attending Derby Public Schools. To the best of our ability, the rights of both students and personnel will be protected.
