Policies

The role of CHS is to provide each student with a quality education to become a productive citizen.
Students, please pursue your academics seriously and enjoy the many activities provided. It is both to your advantage and your responsibility to acquaint yourself with the information in the Campus High School Student Handbook. This handbook should be shared with your parents. We wish you the best this school year.

 

Attendance Policy

Campus High School is committed to the philosophy that students should be in attendance every day. Students who attend school regularly are more successful, both academically and socially, than those with many absences. We believe that the major responsibility for regular school attendance belongs to the parent and student. We ask that you read the Attendance Policy information in the Student Handbook so that you will be aware of both district and state attendance requirements.

Campus High School will follow a slightly modified schedule on the last day of each week for the purpose of allowing students to earn early release from school. Sophomore, Junior and Senior students who have all grades a C or better will be released from school at 2:04 on the last day of each week. In an effort to give students time to communicate with their guardian and arrange for transportation, students who have earned early release will be notified on the first day of each week.

 

Electronic Equipment Policy

We have a new policy that you need to be aware of involving electronic equipment including cell phones. The use of such equipment will be allowed between classes and in the commons. Classroom teachers will govern the use of electronic equipment in their own classrooms. The use in classrooms may vary depending on the particular lesson and administering of tests. Above all we want to teach etiquette to our students regarding the use of electronic equipment. We want them to understand that there is a time and place for the use of such equipment. All of us have been annoyed at one time or another by cell phones or iPods during church, at a concert or in a restaurant. Inappropriate use of electronic equipment will result in a failure to comply referral. Please help us by talking with your student about this new policy – it is found on page 37 of the student planner.

 

Bullying (BOE Policy JDDC)

The Board of Education prohibits bullying in any form on school property, in a school vehicle or at a school-sponsored activity or event. The administration shall propose, and the board shall review and approve a plan to address bullying on school property, in a school vehicle or at a school-sponsored activity or event.
The plan shall include provisions for the training and education of staff members and students and shall include appropriate community involvement as approved by the board. Students who have bullied others in violation of this policy may be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including suspension and expulsion. If appropriate, students who violate the bullying prohibition shall be reported to local law enforcement.

 

Student Dress Code

Proper dress and grooming are necessary in order to have the best learning environment possible. Such dress and grooming is based on safety of the students, normal physical hygiene and no disruption in the classroom. It is recognized that the student and the parent are primarily responsible for proper dress and grooming. The school will become involved only as the responsibility is neglected. The goal is to maintain the best learning environment as possible and the rights of the students to dress and groom themselves as they please will be recognized, as long as doing so does not interfere in maintaining a learning situation.
CHS Dress Code Policy reads: All clothing and adornments must be in good taste so as not to interfere with the learning process. Inappropriate clothing would be considered those items that are revealing, contain profanity or sexual connotations, or promote alcohol, drugs, tobacco, or violence. Kansas State Law requires shoes to be worn. Hats are not to be worn in the buildings. If a student is asked to change, a t-shirt will be provided by the office. Students should dress according to the weather as well. Also all buildings at Campus are air-conditioned therefore, classrooms will be cool.
Thank you for your cooperation concerning your student's wearing apparel.

 

ID Card Policy

School I.D. is required of anyone who wants the privilege of being on our grounds or in our buildings during school hours. The I.D. must be carried at all times on school grounds and must be produced quickly when requested. Anyone not carrying an I.D. shall be directed to the office where they will register as an official visitor or be asked to leave.
Students are responsible for carrying I.D. cards at all times. The I.D. cards are needed for identification, signing in/out of school, for checking out materials in the library, for lunch ticket, and for admission to activities.
Should a card be lost or destroyed, see the cashier for a replacement card. Upon withdrawal from Campus the I.D. card must be surrendered.

Inclement Weather Procedures

When inclement weather causes the school to close, it will be announced between the hours of 6:00am and 8:00am on local radio and television stations. USD 261 will also use the internet based calling system "School Reach" to notify parents/ guardians. However, our system is only as good as the information that you have provided us. Please keep demographics up to date with the school office. All scheduled extracurricular and cocurricular school activities will be cancelled on days when school is closed.

 

Emergency Safety Interventions Policy

Kansas regulations now require that we provide all parents with notice of policies regarding Emergency Safety Interventions (ESI). The State of Kansas policy is available on our website and in our student handbooks. In addition, we will provide a copy of the policy at any time upon request. Get Kansas policy here
