Corporal punishment as a means of discipline shall not be used against a student by any teacher, administrator, office, employee or agent of this School District.

a)    Self-protection
b)    Protection of others
c)    Protection of property
d)    Restraining or removing a disruptive student

Whenever a school employee uses physical force against a student, the school employee shall, within the same school day, make a report to the Superintendent describing in detail the circumstances and the nature of the action taken.

The Superintendent of Schools shall submit a written report annually to the Commissioner of Education, with copies to the Board of Education setting forth the substance of each written complaint about the use of corporal punishment received by the Jordan-Elbridge Central School authorities in each case.
