501.11 Student Release During School Hours

Code No. 501.11


Students will be allowed to leave the school district facilities during school hours only with prior authorization from their parents/legal guardians, unless the parent/guardian appears personally at the student's attendance center to arrange for the release of the student during school hours, or with the permission of the principal.

Approved reasons for release of a student during the school day will include, but not be limited to, illness, family emergencies, medical appointments, religious instruction, classes outside the student’s attendance center, employment for which the student has been issued a work permit and other reasons determined appropriate by the principal.

It is the responsibility of the superintendent, in conjunction with the principal, to develop administrative regulations regarding this policy.

Students in grades 11 to 12 who are in good standing or under special circumstances may be allowed to leave the school district facilities when they are not scheduled to be in class. Students who violate school rules may have this privilege suspended.
