A+ SCHOOLS PROGRAM

 


The East Newton R-VI School District will follow the requirements as established by state law and regulation for the implementation and administration of the A+ Schools Program. The district shall employ an A+ Schools Program coordinator, as required by law.


Program Goals


The East Newton R-VI School District has established the following goals and performance standards:

 

1.         All students graduate from high school.

3.         All students proceed from high school graduation to a college, postsecondary career-technical school or high-wage job with workplace skill development opportunities.


Citizenship Component


An important component of the A+ Schools Program is the fostering of good citizenship in our district's students. A student demonstrates good citizenship by showing respect for self, law, property and the rights of others. Students have not demonstrated good citizenship if they have:

5.         Received an expulsion from school.


Participation Agreement, Discipline and Appeal


All students wishing to participate in the A+ program must submit a completed A+ participation agreement, sign a consent for random drug testing and sign an A+ Good Citizenship Policy agreement. If the coordinator determines that a student who has submitted a participation agreement has violated the terms of the agreement or district policies or procedures regarding A+ participation, the coordinator will notify the student in writing and may put the student on probation or expel the student from the program. The student or the student's parents/guardians may appeal expulsion from the program, in accordance with written district procedures, first to the A+ committee, the building principal, the superintendent and then to the Board of Education. The student's appeal will be heard in closed session, and the student’s parents/guardians will be notified of the decision.
