Behavior Expectations

The Paradise Valley Unified School District places high priority on providing each student with the opportunity to learn within a safe and stimulating environment. For this reason, the Governing Board accepts the responsibility of identifying those behaviors, which, if allowed to exist without restrictions and appropriate disciplinary action, would interfere with the orderly conduct of our public schools. Furthermore, the governing board charges the professional staff with the responsibility for enforcing the rules of conduct, establishing consistency in their enforcement, and maintaining an appropriate learning and behavior environment.

The Paradise Valley Unified School District's Parent/Student Handbook is available online through our district website. Please read the handbook with your student. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact the front office at (602) 449-2300.

The faculty and staff of Sweetwater takes pride in creating and maintaining an environment, which is conducive to learning. Students are expected to behave appropriately and follow all school rules, policies and all directions of staff both on campus and at school-sponsored activities. All school rules and policies apply to our school property; including the parking lots . State law provides the school administration jurisdiction over student conduct at all times during the school day and/or during school activities. This includes the period traveling between home and school.

Safe and Secure Campus

Sweetwater Community School works hard to maintain a safe and secure campus for both our students and staff. Therefore, we do not allow shadowing on campus. Our parents, as always, are welcomed and encouraged to be involved in our school and their student's education.

All visitors must check into the front office and put on a badge prior to going on campus.

Student I.D. Badges

Student Identification Badges

All Paradise Valley Unified School District high school students and staff will be provided a school I.D. and are required to wear them at all times. Students without and I.D. will not be permitted on campus. Identification badges must be worn on a lanyard and be easily seen. Sweetwater Community School also requires their 6th - 8th grade students to wear identification badges and lanyards.

There will be a $5.00 fee to replace a lost badge and a $1.00 fee to replace lost lanyards.
