SB 269 PSA
Attention students and parents: Senate Bill 269 takes effect on January 1, 2015. This Bill established new school attendance requirements for application of a learner’s permit or driver’s license and requires imposing administrative sanctions on students with poor attendance. As of January 1st, all students under the age of 18 who wish to apply for a learner’s permit or driver’s license must submit a completed DMV-301 form to the DMV office at the time of application. The DMV-301 requires a school official’s signature verifying the applicant has attended at least 90% of the school days in the current semester. Students who do not meet the 90% attendance standard in the current semester will be unable to apply until the next semester, provided they have met the 90% standard during that semester. Students who have three or more unapproved absences may be deemed a habitual truant, issued a truancy citation, and suffer a suspension of their driver’s license for thirty days for the first offense and sixty days for the second offense. Students who do not have a valid driver’s license will not be eligible to apply for a learner’s permit or a driver’s license, once they become eligible to apply, for thirty days for the first offense and sixty days for the second offense. Students, who turn 18 during the suspension, will be required to complete the terms of the suspension before becoming eligible to apply for a learner’s permit or driver’s license.
Students with a total of 7 or more unapproved absences per semester in any single class will not receive credit in that class. An appeal process has been established for students who have accrued absences due to extenuating circumstances. For assistance, please call the attendance office.
Students who attend Sunrise Mountain Hgih School are entitled to a quiet, uninterrupted classroom environment in order to help facilitate their learning. If a student arrives to class on time and is ready for class, he/she will have a more successful experience in school as well as develop skills for life upon graduation.
Tardies will not be tolerated at any time during the school day. The first tardy will result in an after-school deans’ detention. Failure to show for detention will result in Required Parent Conference (RPC) status. In order to be reinstated to school, the student’s parent(s) must sign them into school the following morning. All subsequent tardies will result in the student being RPC'd.
CLOSED CAMPUS POLICY
CCSD has a mandatory Closed Campus Policy for all schools. Reg. 5146.1 states that students must remain on school grounds from the morning until dismissal unless off campus permits are approved.
Parents must pick up their student at the RECEPTION AREA on the EAST side of the school if there is a need to leave before the designated time.
