A Policy to Promote Respect in Schools

Respect denotes both a positive feeling of esteem for a person and also specific actions and conduct representative of that esteem. Respect can be defined as allowing yourself and others to do and be their best.

It is the goal of Jennings Public Schools to creative a mutual respectful atmosphere between all individuals involved within our school including administrators, teachers, staff members, students, parents, & visitors.

As such, all entities are expected to remain respectful to each other at all times. Students and teachers especially are expected to greet each other with kind words and student/teacher exchanges should be friendly, in an appropriate tone, and should remain respectable. The majority of student/teacher interaction should be positive.

All school personnel and students are expected to use the following words that show respect for another person at the appropriate times when addressing each other:

  • Please
  • Thank You
  • Your Welcome
  • Excuse Me
  • Yes Sir, No Sir or Yes Ma'am, No Ma'am
