Each school district in the State of Florida including but not limited to Nassau, Duval, Clay, and St. Johns County have a school board / school district that is in charge with promulgating and enforcing rules and procedures within the school system. In Nassau County, there is a code of conduct set forth in the Code of Conduct for Elementary Students for Nassau County. The Nassau County School Board has set forth four types of violations of the Student Code of Conduct. Class I violations are minor violations while Class IV violations are serious violations – many of which could subject the student to criminal prosecution. When dealing with a School Board / School District, it is often helpful to pull up, research and read the applicable school board rules. Just because the rules are in place does not necessarily mean that the involved teachers, administrators, and school board officials know the school board rules or enforce them properly. It may also be helpful to consult with a
Florida chid injury lawyer / attorney when considering your child’s rights within the Florida public school system.
