New Duval Schools Code of Conduct Cracks Down On Student Violence

In three weeks, Duval County students will start a new school year, and they’ll also have new consequences if they misbehave at school.

On Tuesday evening, the Duval County School Board approved changes to the district’s Code of Conduct.

For two years, Superintendent Nikolai Vitti has placed an emphasis on alternatives to out-of-school suspensions. Instead students were given in-school suspensions, mediated group discussion and behavioral contracts.
