Kent City Community Schools
Bylaws & Policies


The Board of Education believes that students should be invited to participate in the governance of school activities at levels appropriate to their ages and competencies, because:

 A.students should have a part in the determination of activities which so deeply affect their lives; an institution fundamental to the operation of a democratic society, the schools should strive to exemplify the democratic ideal of citizen participation in decision making; part of their educational development, students should assume some of the responsibility of planning and executing the activities of the schools;

 D.students are a valuable resource whose contributions can materially aid and benefit the schools.

The Board directs that students be invited to participate in administrative decision-making in the areas of student conduct and the disciplinary code and co-curriculum planning appropriate to their age and competencies.
