Code of Conduct Mission Statement

The purpose of the North Warren Code of Conduct is to clearly articulate a shared understanding of the school district's behavioral expectations to students, parents/guardians, and staff in order to foster a safe and positive learning environment.

Restorative Practices

Restorative practices are a framework for building community and responding to challenging behavior through authentic dialogue leading to understanding and action to set things right and repair and restore damaged relationships.

To promote the intellectual, social, emotional, and physical growth of all students, the North Warren Regional School District provides a safe and secure learning environment. We promote respect for self and others through good conduct modeled by students, parents/guardians, and staff. When relationships break down, we repair them through restorative practices. By utilizing the restorative ractice approach, North Warren can apply administrative discretion to code of conduct violations when appropriate.
