Student Support Team
The Student Support Team is composed of Administration, Counselors, School Psychologist, School Nurse, Home School Coordinator, Classroom Teachers and Parents. The function of this committee is to address the concerns of students who are experiencing difficulties academically, behavioral, socially, etc. and who are not classified by the Committee on Special Education. The goal of the committee is to plan along with parents and any pertinent agencies or personnel to monitor and adjust programs to meet student’s needs for success.
Each student is assigned a hall locker equipped with a combination lock. Students are provided with a lock for their gym locker by the district for a cost of $5. This lock may be used for the students remaining years in Junior/Senior High School.
Lockers, books, and other school material are considered to be the property of the school district. The courts have ruled that since lockers are the property of the school, the administration has the right to search any locker where he/she feels the integrity of the school environment may be violated and/or in an attempt to protect other students. Students’ lockers will be searched with probable cause. Parental or student requests for books and/or materials from lockers do not constitute a search. Lockers remain the exclusive property of the school and students have no expectations of privacy with respect to lockers.
Student Dismissal Precautions Regulation
In order to ensure students’ safety, the Building Principal maintains a list of individuals who are authorized to obtain the release of students’ in attendance at the school. No student may be released to the custody of any individual who is not the parent/guardian of the student, unless the individual’s name appears on the list.
Parents/guardians may submit a list of individuals authorized to obtain the release of their children from school at the time of the child’s enrollment. A parent/guardian may amend the list at any time in writing. Certified copies of any court orders or divorce decrees provided by the custodial parent, which restrict a parent’s ability to seek the release of his/her child, shall be maintained in district offices.
If parents seek the release of a student from school, he/she must report to the school office and present satisfactory identification to the Building Principal. If the person seeking the release of a child exhibits to the school official an out-of state custody order, the Superintendent will be called.
Medical releases are handled through both the Nurse’s Office and the Jr./Sr. High School Office. All other reasons for release must be submitted to the Jr./Sr. High School Office. The person seeking the student’s release must sign the register in the office in person.
Sign out of students will be allowed by parents by telephone in an emergency situation only and requires approval by the Principal. Due to the obvious possibility of releasing students under false pretense, it is necessary for parents to be visibly seen in the office when signing out students prior to the end of the school day. Names of all adults, other than legal guardians, or parents allowed to sign out your son/ daughter should be placed on file in the Jr./Sr. High School office.
