K-12 Student Code of Conduct
Paradise PDS provides a safe and positive learning community for all of our student learners through Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS) and the Leader in Me model.
As part of the Clark County School District, we follow the K-12 Student Code of Conduct to ensure all students, families, staff, and community members are aware of our district wide and school wide behavioral expectations.
Please spend some time with your student reviewing the K-12 Student Code of Conduct.
All parents are required to sign the Acknowledgement of Receipt and Review Signature form that is located on Page 52 in the K-12 Student Code of Conduct. A hard copy of this form will be sent home with your student during the first week of school.
All signed forms are due to the Paradise front office by Friday, August 30.
Please do not hesitate to reach out to Mrs. Stover, Principal or Mrs. Grant, Assistant Principal, with any questions or concerns.

A Letter from Dr. Jara, CCSD Superintendent
Dear Clark County School District Community,
The Clark County School District cares about the safety of every child in our care. We know that maximizing safety on all Clark County School District campuses ensures student success. We are engaging parents, and/or guardians, as critical partners in communicating behavioral expectations to all students. We anticipate that you will discuss the K-12 Student Code of Conduct and review the material herein during conversations at home. After doing so, we ask you to please submit the Acknowledgement of Receipt and Review Signature Form to your child's school.
We know that students must be in school to optimize learning and succeed in attaining educational goals. Excluding serious disciplinary infractions, every effort will be made to minimize educational disruptions or exclusionary practices for students not following the K-12 Student Code of Conduct. Our priority is to use positive behavior supports, when possible, to encourage appropriate student behavior. When this is not an option, we are committed to equitable and reasonable consequences to foster improvement in student behavior.
Our goal each day is to ensure students feel safe while attending any Clark County School District school. It should be noted that students possessing weapons, specifically firearms or other dangerous weapons, will be immediately referred to law enforcement. We will not tolerate jeopardizing the safety of our students or the Clark County School District community. More about this policy and the consequences for weapons infractions can be found in the K-12 Student Code of Conduct.
Additionally, along with the safety of our students, we are committed to the safety of our employees. Student behaviors causing harm to our employees may result in expulsion proceedings and/or law enforcement involvement. Additional information about conduct expected in the classroom, on school grounds, and at school events, can all be found in the K-12 Student Code of Conduct.
Thank you for your contributions to assist the Clark County School District with strengthening safety for all. Again, after you have reviewed this document, we ask you to please submit the Acknowledgement of Receipt and Review Signature Form to your child's school. We stand together to create safe and successful schools.
Dr. Jesus F. Jara
