THE PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY OF YERINGTON HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS

As a student at Yerington High School, you are expected to be aware of and to accept your individual responsibilities in the following areas:

I. The Teaching-Learning Process

You deserve the best instruction that Yerington High is capable of providing.  For the efforts of the teachers to be as successful as possible and for you to work and achieve to the best of your ability, you must cooperate with the teachers.  Like farming and healing, teaching is a cooperative art because it involves cooperation with nature to help it produce results.  Teachers help the activity if learning goes on in the minds of the students.  Learning is a natural process and unless students work at gaining knowledge and understanding, "...no genuine learning ever occurs, no matter what teachers try to do to make it occur." (Adler)

II.  Respect For The Rights of Others

Every right you have has attached to it an obligation.  Your rights must be balanced against the rights of others, and their rights must be balanced against yours.  Also, the purpose of the school and the requirements of the educational process must be weighed in deciding who has a right to do what and what behavior needs to be punished.  That is why our society has laws and why a school has rules.  However, if you are one of those students who wants to take full advantage of your rights and opportunities at this school while at the same time respecting the rights of the others, we at Yerington High School will support and help you.

III.  Responsibility For Your Own Actions

You will be held responsible only for the things YOU do or fail to do.  What others do or not do is of little importance in determining whether or not you have accepted your responsibility as a student-citizen of Yerington High School.  If you choose to follow bad examples set by a few of the other students at Yerington High, you will be held responsible for your actions and your actions only.  The decision will be yours, and so will the consequences.  Your first responsibility, then, is to decide how you should conduct yourself while you are at school; your second responsibility is to be prepared to accept the consequences of your actions.
