Tucson Unified begins the school year with a new student Code of Conduct and this year the district is going digital.
Superintendent Gabriel Trujillo informed the board Tuesday that in an effort to reduce costs it's not printing 50-thousand handbooks to be distributed to all students and parents. Instead, a mobile app of the Code of Conduct will be available to download by July 31st.
"It'll be in English and in Spanish. It will work on any device and you'll be able to navigate the code of conduct in any category, any search words, "said Trujillo.
Parents and students can also download a PDF of the 22-page document from the district and school websites.
Hard copies will be available at each school for families who ask for them. Trujillo says the Code of Conduct will eventually be translated into all the district's languages.
