Code of Conduct

Maintaining a safe, productive environment inside our schools and classrooms is a priority at Cincinnati Public Schools so that our students will learn, grow in character and maturity, and graduate ready for success. This Code of Conduct applies to all CPS students in Kindergarten through 12th grade.

  • Students must follow the districtwide Code of Conduct before, during and after school. 
  • The Code is in effect inside school buildings, on school grounds and at school-related activities.
  • Students also must follow these rules on the yellow buses or vans, or Metro buses, that bring them to school, take them home and transport them to school-related activities.
  • Student discipline rules noted in CPS' Code of Conduct apply during extended school closures.
  • This Code of Conduct and CPS' discipline procedures are based on Ohio law and CPS Board policies.
