    Behavior Expectations

    • Students are encouraged to set personal goals that lead to responsible and acceptable behavior in public, workplace, home, and school. The ideal personal accomplishment is self-discipline. In the spirit of this respect, Roosevelt's Team will not condone the use of profane, obscene, and disrespectful language and gestures. Roosevelt High School will hold an atmosphere in which an orderly education process can take place. Consequently, we place value on respect for others and their property. Students whose conduct is judged to be detrimental to the student body in impedes instructions and prohibits academic success will result in disciplinary measures.
    • Behavior management shall be the responsibility of adults who have an ongoing relationship with our students. Parents will be notified by staff when the student is exhibiting a pattern of unacceptable behavior.
    • To ensure that we maximize instructional time and minimize distractions from learning, the St. Louis Public Schools District’s Student Code of Conduct Policies and Procedures has been established to promote a conducive learning environment that is geared toward promoting academic achievement and positive student behavior. All students and parents are expected to be familiar with board policies and are responsible for understanding their rights and responsibilities.
