UPDATED Class to Class Tardy Policy
Students who arrive to class tardy cause unacceptable disruptions and loss of valuable teaching/learning time. It is a teacher’s responsibility to preserve the teaching/learning time by adhering to school policy on beginning class on time. It is a student’s responsibility to get to class within the allotted passing time.
The UPDATED 2015-16 Class to Class Tardy Policy of Risley International Academy of Innovation has been developed to accomplish the following goals:
Bells ring at the beginning and end of each period. Students have three minutes to change classes. Students may only get into their lockers before roll room, during lunch period (before and after) and after school. A student will be considered tardy when he/she is not in the classroom or assigned instructional area when the tardy bell rings.
An unexcused tardy occurs when a student enters the classroom (without a note excusing his or her tardiness) after the tardy bell rings. An excused/exempt tardy must be accompanied by a note from the main office, the Counseling Office, an administrator, or a teacher. Tardies are cumulative over each quarter.
NOTE: Students are not to be in halls after class begins for the first 10 minutes and last 10 minutes of class, and may only leave the classroom with an official pass (planner signed by teacher) in between this time frame.
*During detention, for class to class tardiness, students will write the steps in the tardy policy.
