Discipline and Safety

San Lorenzo Unified School District strives to create positive school climates where students, families, and all staff work together respectfully to maintain a vibrant and safe environment focused on teaching and learning. Students have a right to a disciplinary process that is consistent, fair, and equitably applied. Our schools are the safest and the most successful when everyone—students, families, and staff alike— collaborates, values and respects each other’s roles, and is invested in thoughtful discipline practices.
