INTRODUCTION





DISCLAIMER This handbook is provided for the parents, students, teachers, and staff of Odin School. The provisions in this document reflect the rules and procedures currently in place to maintain an orderly school environment. In addition, the handbook is only a summary of District #722 board policies and is subject to change without notice. Handbook information on the website supersedes any printed copy and will contain updates as needed. The administration has the right to use their discretion in the decision making process. The handbook cannot possibly cover all scenarios. Therefore, the Board of Education authorizes the administration to address matters that may not be specifically identified or addressed. Inquiry for additional information on board policies may be addressed to school administration or the main office.

MISSION STATEMENT

The mission of Odin Public School #722 is to provide educational opportunities focused on the future to meet the needs of its • students in a safe, responsible, and respectful environment so that all may reach their fullest potential.

The vision of Odin Public Schools #722 is that every learner has the skills, knowledge, and attitude to succeed in an ever • changing world.

GUIDELINES / REGULATIONS

NOTICE TO PARENTS/STUDENTS-CROSS REFERENCE: PRESS 7:10 EQUAL EDUCATIONAL

OPPORTUNITIES

Importance of Handbook This handbook contains information regarding the rules and regulations, which will affect all of the students and staff at Odin School Dist. #722. Please take the time to carefully study the information. KEEP THIS HANDBOOK FOR REFERENCE DURING THE YEAR.

Disclaimer: This handbook is not intended to create a contractual relationship with the students; rather, it is intended to describe the school, its current practices, procedures, rules, and regulations (or code of conduct.) Membership or participation in a schoolsanctioned activity is a privilege and not a right. Your handbook cannot be, nor even presume to be, all-inclusive. Changes or modifications to the handbook fall under the discretion of the Administration.

Note to parents This handbook is issued in order that students and parents become familiar with the general policies of the school. It contains information that should be known by all those concerned with the school.

Home/School Cooperation Your child will spend a large part of his/her childhood in the grade school and junior high. Your child will also spend a large part of his/her adolescent years in high school. The school deals with the students during the important forming years, as well as, the crucial years he/she is becoming an adult, when new stresses and strains are operating. This is not always an easy task and requires full understanding and cooperation among the three parties concerned: the youth, the parent and the school. The desired cooperation between our school and your home can perhaps be better understood if we outline briefly what the parents/guardians have a right to expect of the school and what the school should be able to expect of the parent.

WHAT THE PARENT/GUARDIAN MAY EXPECT FROM THE SCHOOL

1. That the school be operated in a businesslike and responsible manner with reasonable requirements administered in an impartial manner.

2. That a reasonable regimen of work is established for a student and that progress in studies is given a first claim on the resources of the school.

3. That parental inquiries, visits, and complaints receive prompt and courteous attention, and that the school’s response to these inquiries or complaints reflects a constructive and helpful attitude directed toward the best interests of the youth.

4. That teacher’s grading is as fair and impartial as possible, and that the basis for such grading is understood by the students and the parents.

5. That class assignments be definite and a reasonable amount of assistance be given in class, and, on the initiative of the student, as much individual help as resources will permit.

6. That we will do our best to maintain a wholesome school atmosphere and wholesome student behavior, and that we will not permit an individual or small group to upset the image or reputation of the fine young people who attend Odin School Dist.

#722.

WHAT THE SCHOOL EXPECTS OF THE PARENT

1. That the student’s attendance is regular and punctual. If a student is to succeed in school, regular attendance should be as much an obligation as it would be for employment.

2. That if the parents expect their student to be successful, they should demand a regular routine of home study. The amount of such study should reflect the grade level that your student is in, though its distribution among the different subjects will have to be an individual manner. The importance of regular home study cannot be overemphasized; it is essential to quality achievement.

3. That parental inquiry is welcome and may be registered with the principal, teacher, or guidance counselor.

4. That the parents demonstrate a positive attitude toward the school. A negative home climate toward the school will too often damage the student’s outlook and affect his/her behavior and success.

Discipline – Good discipline originates in the home. The parents are the first teachers of their child and should develop in them

good behavior habits and proper attitudes toward school. A parent should:

1. Recognize that the teacher takes the place of the parent while the child is in school.

2. Teach the child respect for law, authority, and the rights of others and for private and public property.

3. Arrange for prompt and regular school attendance and comply with the attendance rule and procedures.

4. Work with the school in carrying out recommendations made in the best interest of the child, including discipline.

5. Talk with the child about school activities; show an active interest in his/her report cards and progress.

Your interest and support at home are important to your child and greatly appreciated by his/her teachers.

Pupil/Teacher/Parent Conferences At no time should you be in doubt of your child’s progress. You are notified of his/her progress through grade report cards. If you still have any questions or feel that there has been a misunderstanding, please call the school for an appointment with the teacher, counselor or principal. Students who wish to talk with a teacher about a problem should request a conference with the teacher before or after school, or at any time convenient to both during the day. Teachers may also request conferences with a student in order to give or arrange individual help, or to clear up misunderstandings.

GRIEVANCE PROCEDURES

While many school districts have no formal process established for appeal or grievances, by tradition the process for appeal is:

1. The student or the parents should discuss the matter with the Principal to create a strategy to facilitate a discussion between the student/parent and the person the grievance is with.

2. If no satisfaction is attained, the matter should be directed to the school Superintendent. If the grievance is against the principal, the district superintendent should be contacted, after talking with the principal as explained in step one.

3. If the matter is serious and a satisfactory solution is not realized, the student or parents may then wish to request permission of the school board president to speak on the matter at the next meeting of the local board of education.

4. The appeal agent after the local board of education is the Superintendent of the Education Service Region, and then the Illinois Office of Education. Only matters involving controversies (or grievances) arising under THE SCHOOL CODE OF ILLINOIS may be appealed to the Educational Service Region and the Illinois Office of Education.

NON DISCRIMINATION/TITLE VI, IX AND PRESS 2:260 UNIFORM GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE

Odin Public School District does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, color, national origin, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, homelessness or disability in providing educational services, activities, and programs in accordance with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, as amended; Title IX of the Educational Amendments of 1972; and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, as amended.
