The Raleigh County Board of Education is working to ensure it has safe and supportive schools.
A new comprehensive policy and manual is now up for a 30-day comment period.
It focuses on revisions in several areas.
Those areas include the use of cell phones, bullying and sexual harassment, along with the implementation of teams for leadership, crisis and emergency management.
Director of Pupil Services Jeff McClung said it's about much more than punishment.
"It's a policy about what we expect our students to do, to behave, and how we are going to be consistent in our interventions and consequences that we give our children," McClung explained.
If approved, the Raleigh County Expected Behavior in Safe and Supportive Schools Policy and Manual will go into effect next school year.
