Campus Privilege Program
- Designated Areas
- Being in Unauthorized Area(s), Leaving Campus
- Loss of Campus Privilege
As students’ progress through high school, they should be granted increased opportunities to develop self-discipline by choosing how to use their non-instructional time, as long as such use does not interfere with the operation of the school. “Non-instructional time” refers to time when a student is not scheduled for a class but may be assigned to a study hall. The Campus Privilege Program allows qualified students to select alternatives to study hall assignment for their non-instructional time on a graduated basis.
The Principal shall designate areas of the campus for use by students during their non-instructional time and shall establish appropriate procedures for managing the Campus Privilege Program and for supervising student conduct.
All students are required to be scheduled for 5.25 - 6.25 credits for the year. If you fall below 5.25 credits, due to class withdrawal, you will be scheduled for study halls during that class time NOT frees.
Before being permitted to participate in the Campus Privilege Program and to remain eligible for it:
- Second semester sophomores must obtain annually, the written consent of their parents or guardians,
- must achieve and maintain quarterly, an academic record with no grade below a “C” and no failure in a pass/fail course,
- for courses using quarter less grading, students must have no grades lower than a “C” for the quarter end cutoff date as recorded on the report card (this includes courses that utilize quarterless grading).
- must meet responsibilities of regular classroom attendance, and
- must conform to school rules and regulations, including any restrictions specified in this policy for their grade level. Eligibility for any and all students to participate in the Program may be withdrawn by the school administration in order to protect the safety and welfare of students when conditions are judged to warrant such withdrawal.
Ninth grade students are not eligible for the program and are required to remain on campus for all non-instructional time, including lunch.
Tenth grade students become eligible for the program after the first semester for no more than two periods per cycle and are required to remain on campus for all non-instructional time, including lunch.
Eleventh and Twelfth grade students are eligible for the program in the first quarter and are required to remain on campus for all non-instructional time, including lunch.
Second semester Sophomores, and Juniors, and Seniors with unassigned time at the beginning of the day (1A, 4B, 3C, 2D) may come in at their first scheduled class AFTER SIGNING IN AT THE ATTENDANCE OFFICE.
Second semester Sophomores, and Juniors, and Seniors with unassigned time at the end of school day (7A, 6B, 5C, 8D) may leave campus following their last scheduled class. STUDENTS MUST SIGN OUT IN THE ATTENDANCE OFFICE.
**For any suspension or Extended Day Detention which occurs after the Memorial Day Weekend, Campus Privilege is revoked for the remainder of that school year and the first marking period of the following school year. For the current freshmen, Campus Privilege may be revoked for their sophomore year.

If a student loses campus privilege due to poor grades, discipline issues, excessive tardies and/or excessive early dismissals, it will be for the ENTIRE NINE (9) WEEKS or multiple of nine week period.
Campus privilege will be forfeited for at least nine (9) school weeks if a student is suspended for any reason or receives an Extended Day Detention for any reason. Students must petition for reinstatement of campus privilege at the end of the period of revocation. They must keep records then check with their Counselor who will verify the appropriate date of reinstatement. The student must have teachers and administrators sign off on the reinstatement form before reinstatement can occur.
