Student Conduct Information
Below is the information necessary for all students to be successful members of the Mount Tabor community. All of this information is included in the 2016-2017 Student Handbook, which students receive on the first day of school (or the first day that they are enrolled). It is also presented by administration during Code of Conduct presentations during the first weeks of the school year.
