Director of Student Behavior and Supports
Student Behavior & Supports includes many varied aspects of work that provide a healthy, safe and secure environment for our students and staff. Included in these focus areas are all Deans of Discipline site departments, Emergency Management Systems, Records, Nursing Services, School Social Work, PBIS, Prevention and Intervention, and Student Support Services.
This page includes the information regarding KHSD policies and regulations on student discipline. We want to make certain that students, parents and staff understand that school regulations governing discipline are based on written rules. Each staff member of KHSD who works with students and parents has been given the opportunity to read and understand these rules and regulations. Copies of the KHSD's policies and regulations regarding student discipline are found here and kept at each school and may be examined there by patrons and students. It is our hope that these rules and regulations will help our schools to carry on in the best tradition and without interrupting their main function - that of giving each student the best education possible. The complete California Education Code may be secured on the web at http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/

Our job, as a Department, is to help students, and support the staff that are trying to help those same KHSD students and families every day! This is a COLLECTIVE COMMITMENT and we think that all students can learn and all educators want to make a difference. This department will work to relentlessly enhance and support student services on each campus, that will include a comprehensive, multifaceted, and integrated continuum of school-community interventions for students in KHSD. Those mentioned student supports will include social-emotional learning elements and supports related to Multi-Tiered Systems of Support (MTSS), PBIS, restorative practices, and/or existing structures that may already be in place. We will work with school sites and community partners to coordinate services and align existing support structures whenever applicable.
