Dress Code (dress neatly and cover yourself appropriately)

Take pride in your appearance. The way you dress reflects the quality of the school. All students are expected to dress and groom neatly in clothing that is suitable for school.

STUDENTS CANNOT WEAR CLOTHES THAT ADVERTISE ANY TYPE OF ALCOHOLIC BEVERAGE OR DEPICTS ANY CONTROLLED SUBSTANCE OR PROMOTES DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOR.

Slacks or jeans are acceptable for all students. Revealing pants are not acceptable, neither are sagging pants.

Low cut, revealing tops are not acceptable and must be long enough to reach the top of pants.

 

 

Attendance Requirements: 8th Hour

On the sixth absence and every absence thereafter, students will be assigned to and required to attend a supervised 8th hour period for the purpose of making up missed days and assignments. Students who fail to attend assigned 8th hours may be subject to disciplinary measures at the discretion of the building principal. ("8th hour" may refer to an hour before-school if the building principal and parent/student agree upon it.) The district will provide transportation for students in after-school 8th hour if needed.

The district does not generally distinguish between excused and unexcused absences, as all absences impact learning. However, in cases where a student has an IEP, or where a student (as determined by the district) is unable to attend school, the district will refer to Policy IGBG and Department of Elementary and Secondary Education guidelines for providing homebound instruction.

Due Process

Students will be provided due process in accordance with the following progression

On the fifth absence from class in one semester, the student and parent/guardian will be notified by mail and/or the School Resource Officer/Truancy Officer that the student has violated the attendance policy. The student will be assigned to and required to attend 8th hour with the next absence and with each additional absence in the semester.

On the seventh absence from class in one semester, the student and parent/guardian will be requested to attend a conference with the principal and/or truancy officer.

On or before the eighth absence from class in one semester, the student/parent may be required to meet with the attendancereview board. The *review board may recommend to the superintendent: a) Further monitoring of attendance; b) Referral to juvenile services or Children's Division; or c) Alternative School.

(*The review board may consist of an administrator, social worker, truancy officer/school resource officer, nurse, teacher and/or counselor.)

The building principal will be in charge of administering these procedures. Current and accurate records will be maintained regarding individual student attendance and will ensure that the student is aware of his or her standing.

When a student misses more than six days of school (middle & secondary: from any one class in one semester), the student will receive loss of credit unless the student attends 8th hours as assigned. All determinations regarding the application of loss of credit will be made by the building principal.

In the event that a student acquires eight absences from school with no attempt to attend assigned eighth hour(s), the student will have forfeited the option to participate or attend co-curricular activities.

Absences resulting in long-term illnesses or other unusual circumstances will receive consideration for a modified application of this policy.
