One of the major goals of the Yonkers Board of Education is to create and maintain an atmosphere in every school in which sound instruction and learning can occur. By making this possible, students’ opportunities for success are enhanced.
The Board recognizes that students have both rights and responsibilities. It is essential that students and parents fully understand that these rights and responsibilities go hand-in-hand.
The education of our youth involves cooperation between the home and the school. Parents and school personnel share the responsibility for providing and supporting a good education. To that end, the Yonkers Public Schools has set forth newly revised, and uniformly enforced, rigorous school conduct and discipline standards.
