The purpose of discipline is to help in the development of self-control and responsible behavior. Students at Mariner High are expected to be mature enough to conduct themselves as young adults and in a manner that will bring credit to them and to the school. The Code of Conduct booklet lists infractions and how discipline shall be carried out. It is the student’s responsibility to become familiar with the Code of Conduct. Note that an administrator may take stronger action when, in their opinion, the nature of the offense warrants it.
