Discipline Code

The Discipline Code is also known as the Citywide Behavioral Expectations to Support Student Learning. It:
  • Is age-specific with one set for grades K-5 and another for grades 6-12.
  • Explains the standards for behavior in the New York City public schools.
  • Describes supports, interventions, and disciplinary responses that schools can use when students demonstrate unwelcome behavior.
  • Explains how you can appeal decisions.
  • Includes the K-12 Student Bill of Rights and Responsibilities.
Please visit the NYC Public Schools Discipline Code webpage for the Discipline Codes (both Kindergarten-Grade 5 and Grades 6-12), the current Conduct and District-Wide Safety Plan, and the current Emergency Remote Instruction Plan. All documents are available in English, Spanish, Chinese, Bengali, Russian, Urdu, Arabic, Haitian Creole, Korean, and French.
