Text Resizing



Detentions are assignments to supervised study areas usually before school, during lunch, or after school hours. A detention may be from fifteen minutes to three hours, at the discretion of school personnel. Transportation to and/or from the detention must be arranged by the student and parent.  Adequate time will be allotted to the student to make these arrangements.  If the student is unable to serve the detention on the date assigned, a parent must contact the teacher or administrator who issued the detention.  Failure to report may result in further disciplinary action.
In-school reassignment (ISR) is a method of school discipline where the student is placed in the ISR room instead of attending regular classes.  Classroom assignments will be provided to the student to complete for full credit.  Students placed in ISR remain in that atmosphere from one (1) class period, up to five (5) full days, and are under the direct supervision of an adult aide.  If the student becomes uncooperative or fails to follow the rules established for the ISR classroom, suspension out of school will substitute for in-school reassignment. Students are not allowed to attend or participate in any after school activities on the days they are assigned to ISR.

Friday Extensions are conducted from 4:00-6:00PM. Saturday school is conducted from 8:00-11:00AM.  Students complete schoolwork assigned by teachers or the Administration. 

Suspension is assigned in response to serious rule infractions, refusal to comply with a lesser disciplinary penalty, or chronic misbehavior.  During a suspension, the student is in the care of parents and should not be present on school grounds.  The only exception is a pre-arranged authorization by the building principal or his/her designee with the understanding that the parent must escort the student while on school grounds.  Students are expected to make up all work missed during days of suspension. Suspension may be imposed for up to 10 days.

Expulsion is the denial of school attendance to a student for a period in excess of ten (10) days. Students are normally expelled for one (1) or two (2) semesters. Expulsion is recommended for offenses of a serious nature, or for the persistent violation of school rules. Should a student reach this point, the principal or assistant principal will recommend expulsion of the student to the Superintendent of Schools. All suspensions and expulsions are conducted under due process of law.
Students who have been expelled from school for the possession, use, or transmission to another person, of a controlled substance, alcoholic beverage, or intoxicant of any kind may have their expulsion reviewed and rescinded if the concerned student requests readmission following rehabilitation in an appropriate professional rehabilitation program.  The student must also provide certification that he/she is free from drug and alcohol related problems at the present time and present a genuine desire to return to school, meet school expectations, and achieve in the school environment.
Possession, use, handling, or transmission of any firearm on school property immediately before, during and immediately after school hours and at any other time when the school is being used by a school group; off school grounds at a school activity, function or event; or traveling to or from a school activity, function or event will result in a one (1) year expulsion from school.  A firearm is considered any weapon which will or is designed to or may readily be converted to expel a projectile by action of an explosive.  The prosecutor's office will be informed of any violation of this nature.

Administrators have the authority to require a student to submit to a chemical test of the student's breath or urine if the Administration has reasonable suspicion to believe the student, while at school, attending or traveling to and from a school activity, is using or under the influence of alcohol, marijuana, or a controlled substance.  Failure to produce a test sample after a reasonable period of time, or the student's willful refusal to submit to the chemical test, or a positive test result will allow the Administration to proceed with appropriate disciplinary action.

The principal or another member of the administrative staff may search the person of a student during a school activity if reasonable grounds for the search exist.
