Student Conduct Expectations

We maintain the following basic rules for student conduct. Please take some time to familiarize yourself with them.

Any violations of conduct, dress code, electronic use or bathroom policies will be documented.

  • Students are expected to behave respectfully to all adults at all times.
  • Students are expected to keep their hands and feet to themselves, which means no hitting, wrestling, or otherwise unwanted physical contact.
  • Students are not permitted to keep a teacher from teaching or a student from learning.
  • Students must obtain their parents’ approval and inform teachers and campus supervisors before leaving campus.
  • Homeschool Connections will not tolerate teasing, bullying or threatening other students in any way. These behaviors are grounds for dismissal.
  • Disrespectful, disruptive or destructive behavior is grounds for dismissal.
  • Profanity, smoking, drugs, alcohol, firearms or possession of any illegal substance are grounds for immediate expulsion from the program.
  • Students are not permitted to use personal electronic equipment in the classroom.

Discipline Policy

  • First offense: We will talk to the student about the importance of proper behavior in class and notify parents.
  • Second offense: We will speak to the parent.
  • Chronic offense: The child is not allowed to return for the semester.

 

Student Electronic Use Policy

Students are not permitted, at any time, to use cell phones or other personal electronics in a classroom. Cell phones, computers, tablets and other electronic devices must be securely put away during classes.

Students are permitted to privately use personal electronics during study hall.  However, students must receive special permission from a campus supervisor to share their personal electronics and show other students what they are doing on them.

Discipline Policy:

  • First offense: Student will be reminded of our rule and asked r to put the device away until the end of class.
  • Second offense: Device will be confiscated until the end of class.
  • Third offense: We will contact the parent for further disciplinary action.

 

Dress Code

We expect our students to dress modestly and appropriately.  The administration prohibits the wearing of the following on campus: tight or revealing clothing, short shorts, indecent clothing, low-cut tops, spaghetti-strap tops, belly shirts, vulgar or inappropriate sayings on clothing, excessively ripped or dirty clothing, and anything deemed inappropriate by the director. In the case of yoga pants or leggings, the student must wear a top that is, at minimum, a finger-tip length below the buttock and pelvic region.

Discipline Policy

  • First offense: We will attempt to find something appropriate for the student to wear (which may involve calling the parent) and give a warning.
  • Second offense: We will call a parent and have him or her bring something for the student to change into or take student home. Warn that next time the student will be expelled for the remainder of the semester.
  • Third offense: Student is expelled for the remainder of semester.

 

Bathroom Policy

We ask students to use the restroom between classes. We only allow students to leave class when doing so is absolutely necessary. Teachers have 55 minutes during which to teach their classes, and this policy helps reduce hallway activity during classes and minimize interruptions in learning.

Homeschool Connections does not tolerate eating in the bathroom or hanging out or hiding in the bathroom during lunch or any other activity.

Discipline Policy:

  • First offense: We will remind the student that bathroom breaks need to happen before or after class in the future.
  • Second offense: We will talk with the student to see if there is a problem. If there is, we will notify the parent.
  • Third offense: The student and parent will meet with a campus supervisor and the teacher to resolve the issue.
  • Chronic problem: If it continues to be a problem, the student will not be allowed to stay in the class in question.
