8 INTRODUCTION Every student in the state of Louisiana is guaranteed the right to a free public education. With this right, the student must accept the responsibility to know, understand, and follow the rules, policies, and laws of the State, local community, and the school system. Rules and regulations are needed to provide a safe and orderly atmosphere in the school so that teachers can teach and students can learn. This Student, Family, Staff & Community Handbook serves as a guide to the those rules, policies, and laws, as well as the academic opportunities and wide variety of services provided to Orleans Parish School Board students and their families. We know that the most important factors for excellent schools and education are communication and cooperation among all participants: students, their families, school administrators and staff, and the community. Section I of this handbook outlines the rights and responsibilities of all members of the school community. Section II provides an overview of important district-wide programs that promote healthy, safe and positive learning environments in our schools. Section III outlines key information for students and parents, including the code of conduct. According to Louisiana law, school systems are required to establish a Code of Conduct that is uniformly and fairly applied to all students. The code shall contain the type of behavior expected of each student, consequences of failure to obey such standards, and the importance of standards in maintaining an atmosphere where orderly learning is possible and encouraged. Sections IV and V contain academic and instructional information to guide students through their elementary and secondary school years, including curriculum, scheduling, grading, testing, course requirements, and graduation requirements. Information throughout the handbook is cross-referenced and supported by the Pupil Progression Plan, Orleans Parish School Board Policy Manual, Orleans Parish Code of Conduct, and policies of the Louisiana Department of Education. We look forward to your continued support and cooperation in maintaining a school environment which supports the teaching and learning process for all students.

17 SECTION II DISTRICT WIDE PROGRAMS OPSB Master Plan for Implementing Positive Behavior Intervention Support The Orleans Parish School Board has implemented a District wide Positive Behavior Intervention Support (PBIS) Program. PBIS is coordinated by the Department of Student Services in partnership with Exceptional Children s Services to improve academic performance. It is not a curriculum that dictates what schools or districts must do; rather it is a way to create a positive climate that fits with the individual culture of each school. It is just a way of doing things. Positive Behavioral Support Programs are a way to impact the learning environments in the schools in order to support high student performance and to reduce behavioral problems. PBIS is a major advance in school wide discipline that emphasizes school wide systems of support that include proactive strategies for defining, teaching, and supporting appropriate student behaviors to create positive school environments. Instead of using a patchwork of individual behavioral management plans, a continuum of PBIS for all students within a school is implemented in areas including the classroom and non classroom settings (such as hallways, restrooms). Positive Behavior Intervention Support is an application of a behaviorally based systems approach to enhance the capacity of schools, families, and communities to design effective environments that improve the link between research validated practices and the environments in which teaching and learning occurs. Attention is focused on creating and sustaining primary (School-/Classroom-Wide Systems for all Students, Staff, & Settings), secondary (Specialized Group Systems for Students with At-Risk Behavior), and tertiary (specialized individualized systems for Students with High-Risk Behavior) systems of support that improve lifestyle results (personal, health, social, family, work, recreation) for all children and youth by making problem behavior less effective, efficient, and relevant, and desired behavior more functional. OPSB Commitment to Coordinated School Health In 2005, Louisiana s Department of Education and Department of Health and Hospitals adopted an approach to address health and academic needs of all children. Through a coordinated, comprehensive effort, Louisiana is making a commitment to its children to address the barriers to high academic achievement, health, and well being. The Louisiana Coordinated School Health Program (CSHP) is the vehicle for bringing prevention and intervention to public school children in the state. The Orleans Parish School Board has committed its support to the full implementation of Coordinated School Health in all OPSB schools. Coordinated School Health includes: 1) comprehensive, sequential health education; 2) quality/nutritious foods in schools; 3) health/physical status of students (including addressing disparities); 4) structured physical activity and education; 5) availability of physical and mental health services; 6) staff wellness; 7) parent and community involvement; 8) school environment; and 9) other identified areas of need, such as early childhood education, children with special needs, minority/children of color, cultural diversity, and evaluation. This year OPSB Schools will begin a comprehensive effort to fully implement a Coordinated School Health Program in all OPSB schools, complimenting the implementation of Positive Behavior Intervention Supports.

18 ABSENCES and TRUANCY STUDENT INFORMATION (Pre K-12) If a student has one or more days of tardiness or unexcused absences, the parent/guardian can expect the school to take one or more of the following actions: Phone call or letter to parent/guardian Parent/guardian conference at the school Parent/guardian conference or home visit with the school social worker. A student may be considered truant and referred to the Municipal Court by the school social worker when the students has had five (5) or more days of tardiness or unexcused absences in one semester, and the school has made all reasonable efforts to correct the student s attendance problem. Absences There are several types of absences that may affect a student differently for the purposes of receiving grades, earning credit, or being counted as truant (habitually tardy or absent). 1. These types of absences will be counted against a student for the purposes of receiving grades and earning credit for work completed, or truancy. Students with these types of absences have a right to make up work from the school for the days and classes missed: Travel for education that is approved in advance; Death in the immediate family (not to exceed one week); Natural catastrophe and/or disaster; Religious holidays of the student s own faith; Extended physical or emotional illness, hospital stay, recuperation from an accident, or contagious disease that has been verified by a doctor, nurse practitioner, or dentist; or Visiting a parent (for five days or less) who is a member of the US Armed Forces or National Guard and has been called to duty or is on a leave of absence from overseas deployment to a combat zone or combat supporting posting. 2. These types of absences will not be counted against the student for the purposes of truancy, but will be counted against the student for the purposes of receiving grades and earning credit. The school is not required to give students with these types of absences make up work for the days and classes missed, but they may do so. Student illness, with a doctor or parent/guardian note Serious illness in the family, with a doctor or parent/guardian note 3. Students who are suspended out of school will be counted as absent, but these absences will not be counted against the student of the purposes of truancy or receiving grades or credit for work completed. A student on suspension has the right to receive schoolwork from the school for the days the student was suspended. In-school suspension is not considered an absence of any kind. 4. Any other kind of absence will be counted as an unexcused absence. These types of absences may be counted against a student for the purposes of truancy and receiving grades or credit. The school is not required to give students with these types of absences makeup work for the days and classes missed, but may do so. Absences to work on any job that is not part of an approved instructional program, even in a student s own home or for a student s parents, will be counted as an unexcused absence. If the student is absent for any special circumstances other than those listed above and the parent/guardian believes the absence should not be counted against the student for the purposes of truancy, receiving grades or credit for work completed, the student s parents/guardians should bring their concern to the school social worker. Tardiness 1. A student may be considered tardy if he or she: Arrives late to class; or Leaves or checks out of school unexcused before the end of the school day; or Arrives late to class when coming from off-campus. 2. A student MAY NOT be considered tardy if he or she: Reports late to class because a teacher or other school staff member held the student in another class or conference, causing him or her to arrive late

19 Each school may determine whether a tardy is excused or unexcused, depending on the school s own tardy policy, and the individual circumstances of each tardy. Five unexcused days of tardiness will equal one unexcused absence. A parent/guardian may not be referred to the Municipal Court for truancy of his or her child based on tardies that are solely the responsibility of the student (for example: multiple days of tardiness for arriving late to class when transferring from another class). ACADEMIC ELIGIBILITY Participation Criteria Any Orleans Parish student in middle or high school who participates in extracurricular activities must meet specific criteria.
