DisciplineSchool staff will work closely with each student to modify his/her behavior. All students are required to follow the discipline policy found in the HCSD Handbook for Parents and Students.Our goal at MSRC is to ensure that we have a bully-free school environment. If any student or school employee feels that he/she has been the victim of bullying or harassing behavior, he or she has the fundamental right to defend by reporting such conduct to the principal. The report shall be made promptly but no later than five (5) calendar days after the alleged act or acts occurred. (See HCSD Handbook)Targeted Focus of Behavior Modification
