[Santa Maria Joint Union High School Handbook. Student Behavior Code.]
Santa Maria Joint Union High School District, CA.
Designed to be read by parents and children together, this handbook outlines the standards of behavior, discipline, attendance, and academics established at the Santa Maria Joint Union High School in California. Following a letter of introduction to parents, the student code is divided into four sections. Students' legal and educational rights are outlined in section 1 and their academic and financial responsibilities in section 2. In detailing the eligibility requirements for participation in extra-curricular activities (section 3), the handbook addresses the issues of grade point averages, citizenship, grades, and attendance. Details of the tardy and cutting class rules are provided. The final section explains major discipline policy for acts such as fighting, violations of the penal code, and misdemeanors and felonies. A chart summarizes school disciplinary action for the first, second, and third infractions of these rules. Suspension and expulsion policies are also described. This document was selected by the Association of California School Administration (ACSA) Task Force on Public Confidence as descriptive of a promising practice or exemplary project worthy of highlighting for the California educational community.
