Code of Conduct

The Briarwood Way

The Briarwood Way forms the umbrella for all student support, and the staff at Briarwood is committed to working cooperatively with parents to promote a positive, safe, environment through respectful and responsible problem-solving. Our expectation is that respect will be evident in the daily behaviors of all students, staff, and volunteers, and that each individual will take responsibility for their own behavior. Please take time to read through our Behavior Expectations and school rules with your child.
