Students celebrating in a library

Every student in Buncombe County Schools (BCS) has a right to an educational environment that is safe, respectful, and caring. The BCS Code of Character, Conduct, and Support recognizes that it is the right of every individual student to access education safely and for every employee to be able to work safely. At its core, the Code promotes an equitable approach to discipline that balances the individual needs of students with accountability and restored relationships.  

The BCS Code of Character, Conduct and Support ensures that all stakeholders have a guide to policies and practices surrounding each school community and the district at large. The Code requires that schools provide equal access to supports and interventions that promote positive student behavior. These supports and interventions teach students to develop self-management and social and emotional awareness while enabling students to correct and/or improve unacceptable behaviors.
