The EC BOCES DL two-way interactive television classes are provided to enhance and enrich the curriculum and to provide low incidence courses that normally would not be offered to students because of low enrollment or lack of qualified personnel. Behavioral and academic expectations of students in DL classes are high. These high expectations are mandatory as we attempt to use a unique technology to meet the appropriate educational needs of students. Students, parents and schools will honor the sending schools schedule, grading policy, and code of conduct, attendance and teacher policies. The Consortium schools have adopted the following rules and discipline procedures:
STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT POLICYAs the undersigned student of record in a DL course, I understand and accept the Student Code of Conduct Policy and agree to abide by the following policies and procedures. I agree that:1. I will not disrupt teaching or learning in DL classrooms; insubordination of any kind will not be tolerated.2. I understand that my voice and image is being broadcasted to all sites at all times. I will not use language or gestures generally agreed upon as suggestive, derogatory or abusive in nature and will be expected to act in a courteous respectful manner as not to disrupt the educational process.3. I can be recorded (visual or audio) at any time without specific pre-warning. Recordings will be available to district administrators and the teacher of the class upon request. Students in the class might also have access to these recordings for the purpose of reviewing the class material. AT NO TIME WILL RECORDINGS BE MADE PUBLIC WITHOUT STUDENT/GUARDIAN PERMISSION.4. I will position myself in the classroom to be in camera view at all times.5. I will not manipulate equipment in the classroom without express direction from facilitator or instructor.6.
