    Rule/ protocol/code of conduct

    It is the rule/protocol/ code of conduct of the school that guardian has to speak in English during parent's teacher's meeting.

    Which of the italicised words suits in this sentence. I would prefer code of conduct though.

    I prefer rule. A protocol is generally a set of rules developed for certain formal situations, and a code of conduct generally applies to students' behavior.

    Are you familiar with OneLook Dictionary? It's an excellent resource.
