Rights & Responsibilities

  • District 2 has high expectations for students and staff. It is imperative that families and staff work together to establish and maintain expected student behavior. Additionally, it is important to recognize that families, teachers, and staff have individual rights and responsibilities with respect to student discipline. 

    The responsibility for student behavior belongs primarily to the students, parents, and guardians. Administrators, teachers, and staff have the responsibility and authority to establish a safe environment where learning can take place effectively.

    Students also have rights and responsibilities with regard to their own conduct in school. It is important for students to understand that the rights of the individual must be viewed in relation to the health, safety, and welfare of the other students and the school staff.

    These guidelines are designed to educate students and parents/guardians to the standards that ensure an orderly educational program. They have been prepared in accordance with Bensenville School District 2 Policy and Illinois School Code. They are reviewed annually by a committee consisting of parents, teachers, administrators and Board of Education members.
