Summary of Changes 2016-2017

Last year the Code of Student Conduct was re-designed in order to make it a more user friendly document. There were various changes including the format starting with the Table of Contents and ending with the Index which we hope has made it easier for families to reference information. This year we reinstated the policy numbers to the different sections of the Code also for easier reference. The two policy changes noted below support keeping students in school and maintaining instructional momentum.

Changes or updated information other than format and re-design are listed below. Policy changes that are new for the 2016-2017 school year are underlined.

FORMS:

  • Parent/Student Acknowledgement Form (updated)
  • Directory Information Opt-Out Letter (updated)


NOTIFICATIONS:
  • Pledge of Allegiance Notification (new)
  • School Public Accountability Report (SPAR) (updated)
  • Extracurricular Activities Notification Student Eligibility Standards and Disciplinary Actions (new)


POLICY:
  • Mandatory 10 Day Out of School Suspension (OSS)
Where a ten (10) day out of school suspension is connected to a reassignment or an expulsion we reduced the number of days from ten (10) days to no more than five (5) days. Pgs. 47-52, 60, 63-65.
  • Make-Up Work for Absences (Excused, Unexcused or Suspension)
Make-up work for full credit and without a grade penalty is allowed for all absences. It is the student’s responsibility to obtain the missed work. The number of days allowed to make up the work shall be equal to the number of days the student was absent, except in cases where the grading period ends before such time. In those cases, the work must be turned in before the end of the grading period. Pg. 35


DISCIPLINE CHART UPDATE:
The Discipline Chart found on pages 80-81, which is used as a guide by our schools, has been updated to reflect recent changes to School Board policy and administrative practices.
