Dear Students and Parents:

Your experience at the High School for Community Leadership can and will be filled with opportunities for learning, building friendships and contributing to life’s most precious moments of your pre-teen or teens life. Our school and community will do our best to make sure we give 100% to all of our students. By adhering to the school rules you will be taking steps toward being successful.

This is list is also a reminder of what responsibilities students will have to live up to during their time at HSCL

  1. Students are to follow their program at all times. Students must not be in the halls during class time without a pass. Loitering in halls will result in a parent conference; continuing this behavior will result in additional disciplinary measures.
  2. Every student has a responsibility to be in his/her seat when class begins. Excessive absences/lateness will not be tolerated and is a result of a parent conference.
  3. Students are prohibited from leaving the building during their school day, including their lunch period. Smoking on school grounds is not permitted. (Seniors should read senior policy)
  4. Dress must be appropriate for the classroom and not disruptive to the educational process. At HSCL, we “dress for success.” Hats and other non-religious head coverings are prohibited. Please do not wear cut-off shorts or shirts.
  5. Students must not use foul or profane language or any ethnic, racial, or religious slurs in verbal or written communications.
  6. Fighting or any other physical confrontation will result in suspension, possible involuntary transfer to another school, and possible arrest. Resolve conflicts peacefully; fighting results in suspension. 
  7. Students must always show respect for each other’s personal property and each other’s feelings.
  8. Students must not engage in any physical or verbal forms of sexual harassment toward anyone.
  9.  Defacing school property in any way will result in a suspension and/or student being removed from school.

Your success starts with you when you make the right choices every day.
