Detention and Suspension
After-School Detention (ASD)
After-School Detention (ASD) will be assigned by individual teachers. Notice will be given to parents before students stay for ASD so that transportation can be worked out. This is a serious assignment that takes precedence over all school-related activities. Failure to attend on the assigned day will result in further disciplinary consequences, included but not limited to a parent conference, additional ASD time, or one day of PASS. Students receiving ASD will be expected to adhere to the following:
- All students assigned to ASD should arrive at their teacher's classroom promptly at 2:30pm. Students arriving after 2:30pm may be assigned an extra hour of ASD.
- Parents are expected to pick up their child at 3:30pm unless prior arrangements with a different adult have been made.
Positive Alternative to School Suspension (PASS)
Certain major problems listed in the discipline code of conduct will result in an assignment to Positive Alternative to School Suspension (PASS). An assignment to PASS can only be given by an administrator. When assigned to PASS, the parents will be notified by phone and/or letter sent home with the student. A PASS assignment means that the student will be removed from all classes and activities and spend the day studying quietly under the direction of a certified teacher. Assignments will be provided by classroom teachers which parallel the work being done in the classroom. Students assigned to PASS will be excluded from participating in after-school activities such as athletics, dances or other after school activities.
Out-of-School Suspension (OSS)
Out-of-School Suspension (OSS) is assigned by an administrator when offenses are chronic, serious, or directed towards a staff or faculty member. Any behavior which results in OSS will also result in exclusion from school activities for the duration of the suspension period.
