• Mission Statement

    The Mackinac Island Public School community is dedicated to inspiring all we serve

    to develop their full potential as lifelong learners.

     

    Preface

    The Mackinac Island Public School Code of Student Conduct has been created through the

    cooperative efforts of the teachers, Superintendent, and Board of Education.  Final approval of the

    Code of Student Conduct rests with the Mackinac Island Board of Education, which reserves the

    right to amend the Code of Student Conduct at a regular public meeting.  If the Board wishes to

    consider amending a portion of the Code of Student Conduct, notification must be given in writing

    to the President of the Teachers' Association one week prior to that public meeting and allow said

    parties the right to express themselves at the meeting.

    Philosophy

    The primary purpose of the Mackinac Island Public School is to provide all students with the

    opportunity to develop themselves and their skills to the fullest extent of their ability through our

    resources.  In order to maintain such an environment, it is necessary to implement a code of student

    conduct, which recognizes the dignity and worth of each individual and which provides reasonable

    and clear processes for resolving problems.

    The Mackinac Island Board of Education believes that the policies and regulations encompassed in

    this Code of Student Conduct are reasonable and necessary to preserve the environment conducive to

    learning.  Individual student’s rights will be protected but no individual has the right to interrupt the

    learning environment of other students.  The teachers are required to maintain a suitable environment

    for learning and administrators have the responsibility for maintaining and facilitating the

    educational program.

    The Board of Education and Superintendent not only have the power but the responsibility of

    making and enforcing rules and regulations for the conduct of Mackinac Island Public School

    students.  Mackinac Island Public School students are responsible to obey the rules and regulations

    made by the Board and Superintendent if such rules are reasonable, not arbitrary, and are not

    discriminatory.  Conversely, no student has the right to decide which rules or regulation they will

    obey.  Anyone having questions or requiring further explanation is asked to call the school at 847-3376.
