The Department of Education's new discipline code for 2013 has been released.

As part of the code, students who act up will automatically receive counseling and mediation, and acts of bigotry will be punished separately to create an easier paper trail.

For students with disabilities, their medical diagnoses must be considered before they're punished.

Parents and students weighed in on the rules back in June.
