2022-2023 Student/Parent Handbook - Premier High Schools
Dear Students and Parents,
On behalf of our campus directors, teachers, and overall school staff, we welcome you to the 2022-23 school year! We wish this year to be a productive experience for each student. For this to happen, we all have to work together: students, parents, and staff.
This Handbook contains information that both students and parents need for reference during the school year. Throughout this Handbook, you will notice symbols that indicate whether a policy applies only to students at certain grade levels. “[E]” applies to grades K–5, “[M]” applies to grades 6–8, and “[H]” applies to grades 9–12. If there is no symbol next to a statement, then it applies to ALL STUDENTS.
Please be aware that the term “parent” is used to refer to the parent, legal guardian, or other person who has agreed to assume a school-related responsibility for a student. Also, the term “campus” is used to refer to school property as well as the geographic area within 300 feet of school property as measured from any point on the real property boundary line. Thus, to prohibit an activity on “campus” is to prohibit the activity on school property and within 300 feet of school property.
This Handbook is divided into six sections. The first section includes general information regarding school policy and procedures. The second section provides important health and safety information. The third section provides information about academics and grading. The fourth section is the Student Code of Conduct. Both students and parents need to be familiar with the Student Code of Conduct which is required by state law and intended to promote school safety and an atmosphere for learning. The fifth section contains information about parental rights. Finally, the sixth section contains important notices regarding student information, computer resources, electronic communication devices, and the school grievance policy.
Although the Handbook is updated yearly, changes in policy may occur throughout the year. Changes will be addressed in newsletters, the school website, and other communications. In case of conflict between Board Policy and any provision of this Handbook, the provision that was most recently adopted will be followed.
We are excited about the learning opportunities that every new school year brings. In our Premier High School District, we will continue to focus on earning a Diploma plus Industry Based Certifications that industries value and can provide meaningful careers for our students.
