After School Detention

The goal of After-School detention is to provide an alternative to students in lieu of assignment to In-School Suspension, where the student would miss classroom instructional time under the direction of their regular teacher. After-School Detention will be held at Plaquemine High School from 2:40-4:30 PM on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, on an as-needed basis. After-School Detention will be conducted under the supervision of a faculty member. No re-scheduling will be allowed; no excuses or tardies will be permitted. Any student who is removed from After-School Detention for failure to follow procedures, or any other reason in the determination of the administration, will result in the student serving In-School Suspension. Offenses leading to assignment of After-School Detention include, but are not limited to: excessive tardies, excessive dress code violations, and consequences for other offenses as determined by the school administration.

 

ZERO TOLERANCE FOR FIGHTING POLICY

School principals will notify the School Resource Officer (SRO) for every fight involving students. All fights will be investigated; self-defense allows the student to defend himself against an attack and the defender must not be involved with any instigation of the said fight.

The school administrator and SRO will investigate the fight and may recommend one or more of the following actions:

1.  Issuing the student a misdemeanor summons;

2.  Releasing the student to a parent or guardian with the agreement that both will  

    appear in Juvenile Court;

3.  Arresting the student(s).

Students involved in a fight at school will also be subject to suspension or expulsion as stated in this handbook.

This Zero Tolerance for Fighting Policy is in effect from the time the student leaves home for school (bus stop) until the time the student returns home from school. It is also in effect during all school-related activities. It is your responsibility to alert a principal, teacher, coach, etc. to any hostile attempt directed at you. Administrators will then take immediate action to prevent further hostile attempts.

 

***ALL STUDENTS 14 YEARS OF AGE OR OLDER ARE SUBJECT TO THE ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY***
