Clever High School Attendance Policy:
Students will not be allowed more than eight (8) absences per semester in any class. An absence is defined as missing more than 15 minutes of any class. There are no unexcused or excused absences – just absences. Any student who exceeds eight 8 absences in one class in a semester will be in jeopardy of losing privileges – such as: attending school sponsored events, participating in clubs, activities, or athletics, attending Prom, participating in graduation activities, etc. The parent will receive a notice of accumulating absences after the 5 th absence has been recorded for the respective semester.
Consequences resulting from excessive absences will begin once a student reaches 8 absences in a class, unless any of the prior absences are determined to have been as a result of limited extenuating circumstances such as long-term illness, hospitalization, doctor/dentist appointment, death in the immediate family, and nurse approved absences. On the 8 th absence the parent/guardian will be notified in writing that their student has reached the allowable number of absences. The parent/guardian will have the option to appeal before the Attendance Review Board by completing an appeal form which shall accompany the notice. The parent/guardian will have five (5) school days to return the completed appeal form and to schedule a hearing concerning their student’s attendance before the attendance review board. Every attempt will be made to schedule the hearing prior to the end of the semester. If the parent/guardian cannot be contacted the administration will enforce the attendance policy as written.
Students and parents shall assume the responsibility of keeping medical documentation for any review of their student’s attendance record should they exceed eight (8) absences. Students who have excessive absences will be expected to stay for tutoring with their teachers. If a student fails to make arrangements for extra help outside of the school day, and their performance in class demonstrates the need for extra help, the student may be assigned mandatory after school tutoring or Saturday School. It is the hope of the faculty and staff of Clever High School that students will take responsibility for their progress in class and to stay on track to complete all course requirements, regardless of circumstances.
Dress and Appearance
The primary responsibility for proper dress rests with the student and parents. The Clever R-V Schools recognizes the value of allowing individual student expression as well as the necessity of protecting student health and safety and maintaining an atmosphere conducive to education. Student dress code procedures must be designed with the goal of balancing these competing interests.
All dress code procedures will adhere to health and safety codes and comply with applicable law. Dress that materially disrupts the educational environment will be prohibited. No procedure will impose dress and grooming rules based on gender in violation of Title IX. District procedures will specifically define ambiguous terms, and examples will be provided when practicable.
In keeping with established practices of good hygiene, safety, moral and social values, and to provide for a minimum of disruption and a maximum of learning opportunity, the following dress code is established:
- Any type of extremism dress, or dress that is disruptive or distracting to the educational process (such as short skirts, lowcut tops, clothing that is too revealing or tight fighting, underwear showing, sagging, or clothing of excessive/revealing holes) will be dealt with on an individual basis.
- Dress and grooming will not disrupt the teaching/learning process or draw undue attention to an individual student
- Footwear is required at all time. No house shoes or slippers will be permitted.
- Hats, bandanas, hoods, sunglasses, or other types of headgear are not to be worn inside the school buildings.
- Teachers of specific courses where safety or health is a factor may require students to adjust hair, shoes, and/or clothing during that class period.
- Any clothing worn shall not have writing, drawings, or emblems that are obscene or derogatory. No clothing will be allowed which advertises or promotes alcoholic products, tobacco products, or drug paraphernalia. Attire or wearing of attire in a manner that suggest gang association is not acceptable.
- Halter tops, tube tops, backless tops, low-cut clothing, tops that reveal bare midriffs, spaghetti strap tops, net, see through, and spandex are not permitted. In addition, all tops must have at least 1-inch straps.
- Clothing styles, unusual grooming or jewelry that create disorder, either in the classroom or while attending school sponsored activities, will not be acceptable.
- Jeans, slacks, pants, skirts, or shorts will be worn at waist level.
*Exceptions will be allowed for spirit days/week but must be approved through administration prior to the event.
