  • CSOYO CODE OF CONDUCT

  • The Board of the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera Youth Orchestras (CSOYO) has developed this CODE OF CONDUCT to ensure there is no misunderstanding concerning the proper expectations that are required from CSOYO student musicians. The following list details specific guidelines relating to behavior, attendance, dress code, and other possible infractions that will result in dismissal from CSOYO. This CODE OF CONDUCT is not limited to infractions listed below, and the Board reserves the right to take disciplinary action as the Board deems appropriate.

    Regardless of whether at rehearsals or at public performances, politeness and courtesy to everyone that the student musicians meet is expected. The following are specific infractions of the CODE OF CONDUCT that will result in immediate dismissal of a CSOYO student musician:

    1. Repeated incidences of rudeness to or harassment of fellow student musicians, conductors, coaches, staff, and/or CSOYO Board members
    2. The use of tobacco products and/or any illegal substance including, but not limited to, alcohol
    3. The use of profane language, or the possession of objectionable printed or recorded material
    4. Theft or vandalism of property including, but not limited to, CSOYO student members, CSO, CSOYO, Hamilton County Schools, City of Chattanooga, Brainerd Baptist Church, and all venues where the CSOYO performs
    5. The possession of a weapon
    6. Violation of Attendance Policy, or repeated and intentional violation of the Dress Code (see CSOYO Handbook for details)
    7. Expulsion from school
    8. The repeated use of any electronic device, including cell phones, during rehearsals.

    A student on suspension from school may not participate in CSOYO rehearsals or concerts. If a student misses a rehearsal due to suspension, the absence will be considered unexcused per the Attendance Policy. If a student misses a concert due to suspension, he/she will be dismissed from the CSOYO.

    I have read the Chattanooga Symphony and Opera Youth Orchestras’ CODE OF CONDUCT and understand that violations of the CODE OF CONDUCT will not be tolerated by the CSOYO Board, and violations will result in the immediate dismissal of the student musician who violates this CODE OF CONDUCT.
