7 STUDENT ACADEMIC AND ATTENDANCE INFORMATION Attendance Students must attend school and all classes regularly and on time in order to be successful academically. A student who meets Virginia Compulsory Attendance Guidelines, resides within the school district, and is not physically or mentally incapacitated for school attendance, shall be expected to be in regular attendance unless excused by the school board or the court. (Isle of Wight County Schools JED-R Compulsory Attendance ) An unexcused absence is counted towards the student s attendance record, which is measured according to the attendance policy. Violating the attendance policy may affect earning high school course credit and even participating in the commencement ceremony. Excused Absences Upon returning to school from an absence (including early dismissal), the parent must submit a note to the principal or the principal s designee. The absentee note must include: The reason for the absence, The date(s) of the absence, Include the student s first and last name within the note, The signature of the parent or other authorized person, A daytime telephone number where the person may be reached. An absence is NOT automatically excused based on a note from a parent or other source. It is the responsibility of the parent to contact the principal or principal s designee to determine the excused status of an absence. No notes will be accepted after the nine weeks in which the absence occurred. Some reasons and/or documentation for excused absences are: 1. Illness supported by a doctor s note 2. Notes from parents approved by the principal 3. Court appearance supported by the court order 4. Severe illness or death in the immediate family 5. Observances of religious holidays 6. Field trips and school-related activities 7. Contagious disease 8. Extremely inclement weather 9. Absences due to extenuating circumstances approved by the principal Important Attendance Information Five parent notes per semester are acceptable documentation for student absences. Upon the fifth absence, the student and parent are required to meet with a counselor and an administrator. Family trips/vacations and trips/activities with non-school-sponsored organizations are NOT EXCUSED ABSENCES from school. Schoolwork may be made up; however, no work will be issued in advance. Students and their parents should consult the school calendar prior to planning all out-of-school activities, including scheduled medical appointments. 6

8 Violating the Attendance Policy High school students shall not be granted credit for a course if unexcused absences from that class total more than five (5) class periods. Also, a student may be assigned disciplinary action for every three times he/she is tardy or has an early dismissal or a combination thereof. (Isle of Wight County Schools JED-R) Appeal Procedures A parent who has a child who is retained or refused credit for a high school class due to violation of the attendance policy may appeal to the school principal. The appeal must be written, state the reason why the imposed consequences for violation of the attendance policy should be waived, and include the dates of any absences in question. Within five days of the receipt of the request for a hearing, the principal shall schedule a meeting for the parent with the School Leadership Team. At that meeting, the principal and members of the team shall review the student's attendance and scholastic record, hear the parent present their case, and examine the evidence of extenuating circumstances. The principal shall issue the parent a written decision within five working days after the hearing. The consequences may include the following: granting course credit, denying course credit, placing student on attendance probation, denying parking privileges and/or participation in extracurricular activities, and granting course credit but denying participating at the commencement ceremony (for seniors only). The principal's written decision shall be final. Permission to Leave School Campus/Early Dismissals Smithfield High School is NOT an open campus. A student is not allowed to leave the school campus during the school day unless permission has been granted by a school administrator or on request and authorization of the parent/guardian and approved by the principal. All procedures regarding signing out to be dismissed early must be followed and any violators are subject to suspension. The following information is pertinent to the early dismissal process: All early dismissal notes are subject to verification and must have valid telephone numbers so that a school official can speak with a parent to confirm the request. All students leaving through an early dismissal must follow all sign-out procedures at the front main entrance and exit through the front doors in the commons. No student, even those students who are 18 years of age or older, may leave campus without this early dismissal verbal verification by school officials. No student may leave campus with anyone who has not been designated in writing by the parent/guardian to do so. If someone other than the parent/guardian is to pick up a student, then school officials must have advanced knowledge of whom and when; again, verification of this arrangement must take place prior to the student being released. School officials will require an official government-issued picture ID from anyone taking a student from campus. One student may not transport another student from campus without written and verified permission from the parents/guardians of both students and authorization from an administrator. No student who parks on campus may go to his/her vehicle during the school day without permission from a school administrator. 7

9 Any student who drives and violates any portion of these procedures for leaving school grounds may lose his/her driving privilege for up to one calendar year. Make-up Work & Late Work A student who misses assigned work as the result of an absence (make-up work) should arrange to make up the work within five (5) days of the absence. An assignment with a due date made prior to the absence is due to the teacher upon the student s return to school. Teachers will reschedule any important test(s) for a student who missed essential class review during the absence. When a student chooses not to complete an assignment by the assigned due date (late work), the teacher may assess a one-time penalty of fifteen (15) points for that assignment. So that a student does not get progressively behind in his/her work and mastery of content, the teacher will establish regular deadlines for completing any missed work; missed work not completed at that time will be evaluated as zeroes (0) in the grade book. A teacher must speak directly with a parent prior to assigning a zero for any major assignment or a succession of zeroes for homework or class work. Schedule Changes Courses selected during registration should be considered as final. Changes may be considered prior to a deadline set before the beginning of a new semester when a request is submitted in writing (with a parent s signature) to the principal for approval and upon availability of space in the class. Once classes have begun, only changes necessitated by course cancellations, by failure, or by irresolvable schedule conflicts will be considered. No student may withdraw from a class after the fourth day of the applicable semester. Class withdrawals or transfers will be considered only after the counseling staff has initiated the request; the request then will be reviewed by the administration and accepted or rejected. The principal has the right to adjust any student s schedule. Exams Midterm and final examinations are important parts of the instructional process, and as such, should be taken seriously by students. Parents and students should consult the school calendar prior to scheduling any outside appointments or trips, which would conflict with published exam days. No student will be permitted to take their exams at an earlier time than those indicated by the IWCS approved calendar. EXAM EXEMPTION POLICY I. Any student in grades 9-12* enrolled in an Isle of Wight County Schools course, who meets the following criteria, may be exempt from the final examination in a class: 1. The student has a cumulative course average of with five or fewer absences. 2. The student has a cumulative course average of with three or fewer absences. 3. Three unexcused tardies shall count as an unexcused absence. A student with more than five unexcused tardies will be ineligible for an exam exemption. 4. All absences are counted unless the absences from class are for approved field trips, participation in school activities and religious holidays. Certain excused absences, such as for a death in the immediate family, hospitalization, or home confinement per doctor s orders, may be waived from the student s total absences for purposes of exam exemption. In cases where a student believes an absence may be waived, the student must complete and submit an Exam Exemption Request Form (IKG-E)1 to the principal or designee.

If a student chooses to take an exam from which he/she is exempt, the exam will count only if it improves the student s grade in that class. III. Nothing in this policy shall be construed to exempt any student from an end-of-course Standards of Learning (SOL) testing requirement set forth in the State Board of Education s Standards of Accreditation, or alter the requirements for earning a diploma. IV. SOL Tests Students in grades 9-12 who take and pass the end-of-course SOL test(s), may be exempt from the final examination in the corresponding high school course if he/she meets the following criteria and if the results of the SOL test(s) are received prior to the final exam: 1. The student must be passing the course prior to the final exam. 2. The student has five or fewer total absences. a.

SOL Tests Sliding Scale for Final Exam Exemption Students can elect to take the final exam if they wish. If the final exam is taken, that will be the student s exam grade and the sliding scale option will no longer be available for that exam. If the student chooses to use the sliding scale for exam exemption, grades will be translated per the following scale: SOL Score Points of Final Exam Exemption V. Career & Technical Education Industry Certification Tests Students in grades 9-12 enrolled in an Isle of Wight County Schools course, who take and pass an Industry Certification test (on the first attempt), may be exempt from the final exam if he/she meets the criteria set forth under IV-1 and 2. 9

11 VI. Advanced Placement (AP) Classes Students taking a corresponding College Board AP exam, and not exempt from the second semester final exam due to other provisions in this policy, may substitute a final project or mock AP exam grade for their final exam grade. Students must still meet the criteria outlined in IV-1 and 2 to be eligible for this option. *Middle school students taking high school courses for credit will be entitled to exemption options. SENIOR INFORMATION Senior Course Requirements A senior must enroll in at least two courses per semester, including dual enrollment classes. A senior and his/her parent may request in writing from the principal an abbreviated schedule (late arrival at 9:07AM; early release at 1:00 PM). For early release, the senior must have transportation from the campus immediately upon signing out and may not return to campus for any reason other than participation in a school-sponsored event. The senior may not return to campus until after the buses have departed campus. A senior must be eligible to graduate on time to be considered for early release. Early release students may not transport underclassmen off of school grounds; loss of driving privileges will occur if students transport underclassmen prior to dismissal. Senior College-Visit Privilege A student who is officially designated a senior is allowed only three (3) college visitation days per school year, while a student who is officially a junior is permitted only two (2) college visitation days per school year. These days are not counted as an absence against the attendance policy or exam exemption IF appropriate documentation is presented to the principal prior to the absence AND verification of attendance upon return to school. See the attendance clerk for specific information on forms of documentation, which meet this requirement. Graduation Ceremony Participation in the annual commencement ceremony is a formal occasion and a privilege offered to seniors who have met all academic requirements for graduation. This privilege may be revoked and the senior may not participate in the commencement ceremony as a result of a discipline infraction. A senior who violates the attendance policy may be allowed to graduate in certain circumstances but may be denied the privilege of marching at graduation. Additionally, a senior who owes any fee or debt (e.g. lost textbook, library books) incurred during any year enrolled at Smithfield High School will not be allowed to participate in the commencement ceremony. Senior Dues Seniors who wish to participate in senior activities throughout the school year and in the graduation ceremony must pay senior dues, which are set by the senior class officers. The primary function of senior dues is to pay for the graduation ceremony. Only those seniors who have paid senior dues are eligible to participate in these activities (including the graduation ceremony). 10

A student should report to the counseling office for assistance in the registration process. Voter Registration Students who meet the voter registration guidelines may register to vote through government classes. STUDENT SERVICES School Clinic The school clinic has a full-time nurse who is available during the school day for students, who are ill, require first aid or have other health concerns. Students who are injured or ill should report to the clinic with permission from their teacher. The school nurse will determine if the student should be sent home and will secure parental permission prior to releasing the student. Except in cases of extreme emergency, students must obtain a pass to the clinic from a teacher or other authorized staff member. The nurse may not attend to injuries incurred at home. Students are not allowed to call home in case of an emergency or an illness or to sign out as sick without first checking with the school nurse or the main office personnel. Doing so will result in an unexcused absence. Medications Isle of Wight County Schools Personnel may give prescription or non-prescription medication to students only with the written permission of the parent/guardian (and with a physician s written order for prescription medication). Such medicine must be in the original container and delivered to the principal, school nurse, or school division designee by the parent/guardian of the student.

Parking without a valid parking permit, or in another student s assigned space, or in any parking lot designated for Smithfield Middle School shall result in the car being towed at the owner s risk and expense. Smithfield High School assumes no liability for the legibility of space numbers or line marks, and it is the student s responsibility to ensure that he/she is parked in the assigned space. The school system retains the authority to conduct routine patrols of student parking lots and to inspect the exterior of a student s vehicle on school property. Also, the school system may inspect the interior of a vehicle whenever school authority has the reasonable suspicion that illegal or unauthorized materials or other evidence of illegal or otherwise prohibited activities is contained inside the vehicle. Any patrols or inspections may be conducted without notice, without student consent, and without a search warrant. Any student who fails to provide access to the interior of his/her vehicle upon request by a school official will be subject to disciplinary action.

14 Textbooks Students in Isle of Wight County Schools will receive textbooks without a rental fee, with the understanding that this school property will be safeguarded and returned upon completion of the corresponding course. A student and his/her parent are responsible for reimbursing the school for any damaged or lost textbook.
