                                           FORWARD

This handbook has been prepared to familiarize the students, parents and faculty with the
services, programs and policies of the Lyman School District.

It is our aim to provide the best educational environment possible. In order to accomplish
this goal, it becomes necessary to have certain rules imposed on all of us. The Lyman
School District asks for your cooperation so that we may provide a rewarding and
enriching educational experience.

It is our hope that this information will provide a better understanding of the school and
result in a better cooperation and closer harmony among all parties.




                          WELCOME TO LYMAN HIGH SCHOOL

The faculty and administration of Lyman High School extends to you a warm and hearty
welcome. We are looking forward to an exciting and successful 2011-2012 school year.

hope that you will take advantage of the many wonderful opportunities and that by working
together we may distinguish ourselves as having an outstanding high school.

                                    ATTENDANCE POLICY

The Board of Education of the Lyman School District believes that regular attendance is an
important step in the ladder of success. A student’s contribution to and achievement in class are
directly related to attendance. Both students and parents must understand that students miss a
vital portion of their education when they are absent from school.

With this in mind, together with the provision of SDCL 13-27-l, the official attendance policy of
Lyman School District 42-l is as outlined in the following paragraphs.

                                     PUPIL ATTENDANCE
1. A student who enrolls in the Lyman School subjects himself/herself to the same compulsory
   school attendance requirements and the rules, regulations and requirements of those students
   who are within the compulsory school attendance law (13-27-1). Under South Dakota law, a
                                                               2011-2012 Student Handbook 10


    child who is not younger than five (5) or older than six (6) by the first day of September, but
    who has not exceeded the age of eighteen (18) is of compulsory school age. It is the
    responsibility of every person having under their control a child between those ages to see to
    the child’s attendance at school until the child has reached the age of eighteen (18), unless
    excused. All children shall attend kindergarten prior to age seven. Any child who transfers
    from another state may proceed in a continuous educational program without interruption if
    the child has not previously attended kindergarten.
2. A student must be the age of four (4) by the first day of September to enroll in the Lyman Pre-
    school. Under Title I guidelines, once a child reaches age five (5) by the first day of September,
    the child is eligible to attend kindergarten.
3. For accounting purposes, students are considered absent when they are not in attendance,
    regardless of the reason. School sponsored activities are an exception.
4. When students are ill and unable to report to school, a call from the parent/guardian is
    required between 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. Please call us at 895-2579 (Presho) or 869-2213
   (Kennebec).
5. Students are requested to present a written explanation of absence, signed by parent/guardian,
    on the day of return to school.
6. Except for emergencies and illness, absences should be prearranged and school work made up
    in advance.
7. Assignment and class activities during an absence are the responsibility of the student.
8. In general, for every day a student is absent, he/she will have two days to make up the work
    missed.
9. Normal absences will be excused. These include, but are not restricted to, doctor
     appointments, funerals, immediate/temporary work at home, or any absence where the student
     is accompanied by the parent. All other absences must be cleared beforehand by the principal
    or the absence will be unexcused.

                                  ABSENCES FROM SCHOOL

The following procedure will be used after the student has been absent a number of times during a
semester.

SIX (6) ABSENCES - A letter stating this fact will be sent to the parent/guardian.

EIGHT (8) ABSENCES - A letter stating this fact will be sent to the parent/guardian. A
conference will be held to include student, parent/guardian, and the principal. There will be a
discussion of the attendance policy and the consequences of further absences.

TWELVE (12) ABSENCES - A conference will be held to include the student, parent/guardian,
principal and superintendent. The purpose of the conference shall be to inform the
parent/guardian and the student that there is concern because the student has accumulated
absences that (if continued) may result in suspension. If suspended, the student may re-enroll the
succeeding semester.

All absences will count as one day toward the maximum absences allowed. Exceptions to this
policy will be as follows:
                                                              2011-2012 Student Handbook 11


   1. Participation in school sponsored activities - no count.
   2. Death or critical illness to immediate family - no count up to five (5) days.
   3. Cases of prolonged absence because of hospitalization or serious illness - no count if
      verified by doctor’s statement.
   4. All situations of absence, not covered by the attendance policy, are at the discretion of the
      principal.
                                 HOMEBOUND INSTRUCTION

Any child with a health or physical impairment, which will cause him/her to be absent from school
for more than six consecutive days, (6 school days) may be placed in a Homebound Instructional
Program. A multi-disciplinary team will determine the amount of instructional and support
services needed to meet the educational needs of the child.

                                           TARDINESS

A student will be counted tardy if he/she is not in the designated room and in his/her assigned seat
at the time the period is scheduled to begin. When a student is tardy, the following will be
implemented:
     1. When a student is tardy during the school day, he/she must report to the high school
         secretary's office and obtain a tardy slip. All unexcused tardy students will meet with the
         principal before going to class. An unexcused tardy may result in a one (1) hour before-
         school or after-school detention.

   2. Tardiness caused by a late bus will be excused and not recorded provided the student was
      riding the bus.

   3. Excessive unexcused tardiness may be subject to additional discipline procedure as
      determined by the principal.

   4. Excluding first and fifth periods, all students are expected to be in their assigned classrooms
      within one minute after the bell has rung.

   5. Tardiness caused by a medical appointment will be excused and not recorded as tardy
      provided the student is in attendance by 11:00 a.m.

                                     CODE OF CONDUCT

The students of Lyman High School are valuable assets and are representative of the school and
community. As representatives, their actions and conduct in school and at school related
functions, both home and away, should be appropriate and positive. Any student who disregards
their responsibility of following the rules and regulations will be disciplined according to the
infraction of the rule.

                                 APPROPRIATE BEHAVIOR

We expect, that as a student, you will act and behave in an appropriate manner. We expect you to
treat your fellow classmates and school personnel with dignity and respect. We believe students
                                                               2011-2012 Student Handbook 12

                                                              2011-2012 Student Handbook 13


                         STUDENT USE OF PHYSICAL THREATS

The Lyman School District will not tolerate the use of physical threats towards any student and/or
staff members. Any student using physical threats will be subject to disciplinary procedures.

terroristic threat or hoax is a criminal offense and can carry felony penalties of $10,000 and 10
years in prison.

Any student involvement in the communication of a terroristic threat or hoax will be reported to
local law authorities and may be suspended or expelled from school.

Study hall is to be a quiet place, which is conducive to study and students are expected to adhere to
the following rules:

1. Quietly enter the room, take your assigned seat, and remain there.
                                                               2011-2012 Student Handbook 15


2. Students are required to use the period studying by themselves without speaking privileges.

   another teacher which will allow them to travel directly to, and work under their direct
   supervision. These passes must be acquired prior to study hall time and must carry the initials
   of the teacher issuing the pass and the study hall teacher. Should a student have such a pass,
   they are to return to the study hall about five minutes before the end of the class period.

   be limited as conditions dictate), check out to the principal, the office, or the counselor.

4. Students must have a pass to go to the library and are to give the pass to the librarian upon
   arrival. Students must have their pass signed by the librarian upon leaving the library to return
   to study hall. Students arriving together must leave together. Students may not leave the
   library area without permission from the librarian.

5. About five minutes before the end of the class period, all students are to return to study hall
   and no further passes will be issued.

***Please note that any exception to these rules will be dealt with on a case-by-case basis. If an
   individual student has an urgent need to spend the entire study hall period in the library for
   research reasons or computer use, permission may be granted by the study hall teacher for
   these instances.

manner requested by the staff member.

Using Mr., Miss, Ms., Mrs., and/or Coach, before the staff member's last name is encouraged as
the most appropriate way to address a staff member.
                                                                2011-2012 Student Handbook 16

stand and honor our flag with the following:

       "I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the republic
       for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for
       all."
                       CONSTITUTIONALLY PROTECTED PRAYER

As a condition of receiving Federal funds under terms of the Federal education law “No Child Left
Behind,” the Lyman School District must have no policy that prevents or otherwise denies

period.
                                    HOMEWORK POLICY

Teachers will assign as much work as needed to adequately reinforce current lessons. Homework
assignments may vary due to individual class requirements. Homework assigned to students will be
of a realistic time element and may be graded.

                                           DRESS CODE

The Lyman School District recognizes that it is the prerogative of parents to determine what is
appropriate dress and grooming for their children in accordance with the age and grade of these
students. It is hoped that decisions made by parents and students in these matters will reflect
favorable upon the individual, the school, and the community.

There are certain restrictions necessary on a student’s dress and grooming when such dress and
grooming may create a health or safety hazard; invade the rights of others; or be disruptive to the
educational environment by detracting from the decency and decorum in school. It will be the
responsibility of the building principal to determine violations of the intent to this policy and to
take necessary corrective action.
Students are to dress appropriately for school. Cleanliness, neatness, safety, and non-disruption of
the learning process are our primary concern. The following is a partial list of dress code rules:
    1. Footwear is required at all times.

   2. Hat, caps, scarves or other headwear will not be permitted during the school day. All
      headwear is to be removed as the student enters the school building and should remain off
      until the student is outside the building.

   3. Wearing of sunglasses, headsets, and inappropriate chains is prohibited.
                                                               2011-2012 Student Handbook 17


   4. T-shirts, jackets, or other apparel, which convey profane meaning in regards to sex, drugs,
      tobacco, alcohol, or are derogatory toward race or religion through pictures, lettering, or
      other markings are prohibited.

   5. No jacket/coat should be worn by students to the classroom areas except when going to the
      gym or mini-gym areas. When requested by the student, special permission may be
      granted by the building principal.

   6. Gang attire/markings are prohibited.

   7. Wearing inappropriate pants/shorts or tops is prohibited. Clothing that displays bare
      midriffs, have spaghetti straps or tops that are cut too low are not allowed. Pants that hang
      too low showing student’s undergarments or their backsides are not allowed.

   8. Inappropriate hair coloring and/or styles that may disrupt the on-going school educational
      program, which is determined by the Superintendent and/or building principal.

   9. Any personal appearance that disrupts the on-going school program, invades the rights of
      others, or creates a health or safety hazard is prohibited.

                                            LOCKERS

A locker is furnished by the school for each high school student. This service is for the student's
convenience and for the safety of their possessions. Students are to use the locker assigned to

       with no articles hanging outside the locker.

All book bags, backpacks and satchels are to be kept in the lockers during the school day.

         USE OF CELL PHONES AND PORTABLE MEDIA DEVICES POLICY

The Lyman School District, as part of a commitment to upholding academic integrity and
providing a safe learning environment free from distraction, limits student use of cellular phones
and portable media devices.

All student cell phones and portable media devices shall be turned “off” when entering the school
building and kept in their lockers during the school day. Any student having their cell phone or
portable media device in their possession during the school day without permission will be subject
to disciplinary action.

   -   On the first violation, the device is taken from the student and returned to the student at
       the end of the day. The student will serve one day of In School Suspension.
       Parent/guardian will be notified of the violation.

so with administrative permission. Any student using their cell phone or portable media device
during the school day without administrative permission will be subject to disciplinary action.

   -   On the first violation, the device is taken from the student and the parent/guardian has to
       pick up the device from the office. The student will serve two days of In School Suspension
       and will loose study hall and pop privileges for the remainder of the school term.

to others;
    1. Academic dishonesty or cheating;

parents for their child at a modest cost. This insurance is offered to you through a private
insurance company, which has no connection with Lyman Schools. This coverage is for accidents
incurred on the way to school, during school and on the way home. Student insurance forms and
information will be available at the school office.

                                       VISITING SCHOOL

upon your arrival.

Parents and other adults are welcome to visit our school any time. We encourage you to visit
your child’s classroom as often as possible to become acquainted with our staff, facility and
educational programs.

All visitors are to conduct themselves in an appropriate and positive manner while on school
grounds. Any visitor who creates a disturbance or attempts to disrupt the educational process
will be asked by school administration to leave the school grounds. If the visitor refuses to leave
the school grounds as requested, the school administration is directed to request the assistance
from the county sheriff’s office.
                                                                2011-2012 Student Handbook 21


From time to time we have requests from people to bring other children, relatives, or preschool
brothers and sisters to visit school. We have, in some cases been “surprised” when our students
bring other students to school with them. Please call the principal’s office for prior approval.

                       ADMINISTERING MEDICINE TO STUDENTS

Students will not be permitted to take medication while at school unless such medicine is given
them by designated school staff acting under specific written request of the parent or guardian
and under the written instructions of the student’s physician.

When a parent or guardian makes such a request, a full release from the responsibilities
pertaining to the administration and consequences of such medications must also be presented
to the principal by the student’s parent or guardian.

                                 STUDENT PARKING POLICY

The Lyman District School Board recognizes its responsibility for the health and safety of students
and its responsibility to provide proper supervision and security to student vehicles. Therefore,
the Board requires that all students who drive a vehicle to school must park their vehicles in the
parking facilities designated by the school administration for student parking.

Students who do not park their vehicles in the designated parking facilities will be subject to
disciplinary procedures.
                                                               2011-2012 Student Handbook 23


A parent can request an alternative parking arrangement with the building administrator in case the
vehicle is to be used for parental purposes during school hours.
If you drive a car or other motor vehicle to school, you are subject to the following rules and
regulations:

1. Juniors and seniors are to park in the upper parking lot.
2. Sophomores may park on the south side of the high school building.
3. Freshmen are to park on the east side of the gym or in the lower parking area.
4. Students may park at the mini-gym with permission from the building administrator.

   your car and other private property in the parking lot.

The school parking lot is a privilege not a right. Students who drive on school property are
required to abide by school district parking rules and agree to have their vehicles searched as
deemed necessary by administration.

Student’s vehicles are to be driven carefully and without exhibition at all times while entering
and/or leaving school grounds. Students not driving carefully on school grounds will be subject to

                    LYMAN SCHOOL DISTRICT DISCIPLINE POLICY

The Lyman Board of Education recognizes that effective pupil discipline contributes in a major
way to the creation of a positive and productive learning environment for all students. It is the
belief of the Board of Education that the prime objectives of discipline shall be:

1. To assist students in the development of the ability to discipline themselves.
2. To assist students in the development of behavior, which is socially acceptable and respectful
   of others.

Parents are the first to foster self-discipline and respect for authority within the child while still at
home. The school provides the environment in which this home training can be developed
further, enabling all students to pursue their own educational needs without unnecessary disruption
by others.

All members of the school community are expected to contribute to the establishment of order.
The Board of Education holds all school personnel through the Superintendent responsible for
the maintenance of order within the schools, and supports all personnel acting within the
framework of district policy.

The Superintendent shall establish procedures to carry out Board of Education policy, shall hold
all school personnel, students, and parents responsible for conforming to the provision of the
Board of Education concerning the behavior of students, and shall support all school personnel
performing their duties within the framework of the district policies.

The school principal shall be responsible to the Superintendent for the conduct of the respective
schools. The principals shall be given the responsibility and authority to formulate school rules
and regulations to enforce the district policy. The principals shall give full support to school
personnel performing their duties within the framework of district policy. The principals shall
involve other members of the professional team in the disposition of behavior referrals and shall
make use of all agencies available for assisting students and parents.
                                                               2011-2012 Student Handbook 29


Teachers shall be responsible for providing a well-planned teaching\learning situation. They shall
enforce rules and regulations in the schools, and shall give support to their principals in
maintaining district policy.

Non-certified personnel shall be responsible for contributing to the atmosphere of mutual respect
within the school community.

Parents shall be held responsible for the behavior of their children. Parents are expected to
cooperate with the school authorities and participate in conferences regarding behavior of their
children.

Pupils shall be held individually responsible for their behavior.

Good school discipline is evidenced by consideration for others; respect for public and private
property; respect for rules, regulations and their enforcement; respect for authority and fellow
students; and recognition of the need for self-discipline.

Discipline, when fairly administered, helps maintain the balance between the rights of the
individual and the rights of the group. Good discipline controls the behavior of the individuals and
of groups so that the rights of all individuals are protected. It ensures justice and equality, and
recognizes the dignity and worth of each individual.

For those few students who seem unable or unwilling to adjust self-discipline to the common good,
and who consequently continually disrupt the orderly operation of the school, procedures must be
established to prevent and correct abuses.

Ultimately, the Lyman School District Board of Education goal on student discipline is to prevent
undesirable behavior while maintaining a school environment, which provides maximum learning
opportunities for all students.
                                RESTRAINT/PHYSICAL FORCE

The safest practice for all employees to follow is to refrain from forcefully laying hands on the
student unless there is need for physical restraint, thus no employee shall use physical force on any
student except in the following cases:

1. As a matter of self-defense
2. To protect other students from attack
3. To restrain a student from doing injury to himself
4. To stop a fight between two or more students when they will not accept verbal instruction
5. To deter the student from doing malicious damage to personal or public property
6. To use reasonable force to remove a student from the classroom with just cause
7. As otherwise authorized by State Law
Notwithstanding the above, in all other instances, physical force is reserved for use by the principal
only, and solely at his/her discretion. Physical force must be reasonable in manner and moderate
in degree.
                                                               2011-2012 Student Handbook 30


                    ADMINISTRATIVE DISCIPLINARY PROCEDURES

It is necessary that students learn to develop self-discipline in order to further their learning. The
importance of, and need for, good behavior and a good attitude while at school cannot be stressed
enough.

Superintendents, principals, supervisors and teachers have disciplinary authority over all students
while the students are in school or while students are involved in school-sponsored activities either
on or off school premises. Superintendents and principals may also discipline students for
aggressive or violent behavior that disrupts school or affects the health/safety of the school or its
programs.

Students who break school rules and cause class disruptions may be sent to the principal and the
proper disciplinary action will be taken. Disciplinary action is at the discretion of the school
administrator and may include the following actions.
       1. Noon detention
       2. Before-school detention
       3. After-school detention
       4. In-school suspension
       5. Ineligibility for participation in school-sponsored activities
       6. Out-of-school suspension
       7. Expulsion
       8. Saturday school

NOON DETENTION

The student will report to the high school detention room at 12:20 p.m. The student will stay in
the detention room for the entire lunch period. Noon detention students will have no privileges
during this time and will eat their noon meal in the room.

BEFORE- SCHOOL
BEFORE- SCHOOL DETENTION

The student will report to the high school office at the time specified by the high school principal.
The student will have no privileges and must bring work to do. Failure to report to before school
detention may result in ISS or OSS.

 FTER-
AFTER- SCHOOL DETENTION

The student will report to the high school office at 3:30 p.m. The student will remain in the office
area for a specified time determined by the principal. The student will have no privileges and must
bring work to do. Failure to report to after school detention may result in ISS or OSS.

IN-
IN-SCHOOL SUSPENSION (ISS)

The student will report to the high school office and remain there for the entire school day. There
will be no privileges and the student will do assignments as assigned by teachers.
                                                                2011-2012 Student Handbook 31


SATURDAY SCHOOL

The student will report to the Administration Office at 9:00 a.m. on the Saturday assigned by the
Principal. The student will remain in the office until noon with no privileges and must bring work
to do. Reasons for Saturday school are things such as continued failure to do daily assignments,
excessive tardiness, and excessive classroom disruption.

STUDENT SUSPENSION AND EXPULSION

If a student violates a school's rule policy, or displays insubordination or misconduct, the principal
may suspend the student for up to 10 school days and the superintendent of schools may suspend
up to 90 school days. No student may be suspended unless:
         1. The student is given oral or written notice of the charges against him/her.
         2. The student is given an oral or written explanation of the facts that form the basis of the
            proposed suspension.
         3. The student is given an opportunity to present his/her version of the incident.

Generally, a suspension may be imposed when a student’s behavior creates a threat to his own or
other’s safety or imposes a threat to property or premises or creates a serious disruption of the
school environment. Behavior such as fighting or committing an assault on another; stealing;
vandalism; possessing weapons, explosives, or other prohibited materials; making a false alarm or
terroristic threat; lewd or threatening behavior or language; possession of drugs; or possession of
beer or alcoholic beverages on the school premises or at school activities may result in
suspensions.
Students who are guilty of continued serious misconduct, which results in repeated suspension,
and who therefore interfere with the opportunity of other students to carry on their learning
activities may be recommended to the Board for expulsion from school.

Hearing procedures as established by state regulations will be followed for all students who receive
long-term suspensions or expulsions.

In case of a suspension by the superintendent for more than ten school days, the pupil or his
parents or others having his/her custodial care may appeal the decision of the superintendent to
the board of education.

Additional procedures mandated by state and federal law apply to special education students
attending schools under the terms of an I.E.P. (Individual Education Program.)

In the event the student and/or parent/guardian wishes to appeal the suspension to the Board of
Education, the suspension shall be stayed until the Board renders its decision, unless in the
judgment of the superintendent of schools, the student's presence poses a continuing danger to
persons or property or an ongoing threat of disrupting the academic process, in which case the
student may be immediately removed from school, and the notice and hearing shall follow as soon
as practicable.
                                                                2011-2012 Student Handbook 32


The Superintendent/School Board may expel a student for the balance of the current school year
for conduct that disrupts the educational process or endangers the life, health, or safety of the
student, other students, or school personnel. Prior to final action, the Lyman School Board and
Superintendent must follow the requirements of due process.

No student under expulsion or suspension from school may transfer to another school district until
the suspension or expulsion has expired. The sending district will notify the receiving district in
writing of the suspension or expulsion when the student's permanent record is requested by the
receiving district.

A student who is suspended out of school (OSS) for 1-3 days will be able to make up his/her
assignments upon his/her return to the school setting and will receive full credit for the work
completed.

A student who is suspended out of school (OSS) for 4-10 days will be able to make up his/her
assignments upon his/her return to the school setting but will receive only 50% credit for the work
completed. A student who is suspended out of school (OSS) for more than 10 days will not
receive credit for the assignments missed during their suspension.

                        EXTRA CURRICULAR ACTIVITIES POLICY
                            FOR HOME SCHOOL STUDENTS

education. Only students who attend the Lyman School District full time will be allowed to
participate in the school district’s extra curricular activities.
                                                               2011-2012 Student Handbook 33


                           DANGEROUS WEAPONS IN SCHOOL

Schools should be an example of what is taught regarding the observance and respect for law.
Schools also must be highly conscious of the health and welfare of students, staff, and the public.

State and federal laws as well as board policy forbids the bringing of dangerous or illegal weapons
to school or school sponsored activities. Any weapon taken from pupils shall be reported to the
pupil's parents. Confiscation of weapons may be reported to the police. Appropriate disciplinary
and/or legal action shall be pursued by the building principal.

A dangerous weapon is defined as any firearm, or air gun, knife or device, instrument, material or
substance, whether animate or inanimate, which is calculated or designed to inflict death or serious
bodily harm.

No dangerous weapons are permitted on any school premises, school vehicle or any vehicle used
for school purposes, in any school building or other building or premises used for school
functions. An exception would be weapons under the control of law enforcement personnel,
starting guns while in use at athletic events, firearms or air guns at fire ranges, gun shows, and
authorized supervised school training sessions for the use of firearms.

Any student bringing a firearm to school calculated or designed to inflict death or serious bodily
harm, shall be expelled for a period of not less than twelve months and will be referred to law
enforcement authorities. The superintendent shall have the authority to recommend to the school
board that this expulsion requirement be modified on a case-by-case basis. This policy shall be
implemented in a manner consistent with IDEA and Section 504. For the purpose of this portion
of this policy, the term "firearm" includes any weapon which is designed to expel a projectile by
action of an explosive, the frame or received of any such weapon, a muffler or silencer for a
weapon, or any explosive, including any poison gas.

Firearms in vehicles on school premises do not apply to this policy as long as they are not
calculated or designed to inflict death or bodily harm.

School administration is required to report any violation of SDCL 13-32-7 (which makes
possession of firearms and dangerous weapons on school premises a misdemeanor) to local law
enforcement authorities.
                                   BOMB THREAT POLICY

The Board recognizes that bomb threats are a significant concern to all schools. Whether real
and carried out or intended as a prank or for some other purpose, a bomb threat represents a
potential danger to the safety and welfare of students and staff and to the school property. Bomb
threats disrupt the instructional program and learning environment and also place significant
demands on school financial resources and public safety services. These effects occur even
when such threats prove to be false.

Any bomb threat will be regarded as an extremely serious matter and treated accordingly. The
Board directs the Superintendent to react promptly and appropriately to information concerning
bomb threats and to initiate or recommend suitable disciplinary action.
                                                     2011-2012 Student Handbook 34



A. Conduct Prohibited
   No person shall make or communicate by any means, whether verbal or non-verbal,
   a threat that a bomb has been, or will be, placed on school premises. Because of the
   potential for evacuation of the schools and other disruption of school operations,
   placement of a bomb or of a “look-alike” bomb on school premises will be considered
   a threat for the purpose of this policy.

   It is also a violation of Board policy to communicate by any means that any toxic or
   hazardous substance or material has been placed, or will be placed, on school
   premises with the intent to endanger the safety and welfare of students or staff and/or
   disrupt the operations of the schools. For the purpose of this policy, “toxic or
   hazardous substance or material” means any material or substance, including
   biomedical materials or organisms, that, when placed as threatened, could be harmful
   to humans.

B. Definitions
      1. A “bomb” means an explosive, incendiary or poison gas bomb, grenade,
           rocket, missile, mine, “Molotov cocktail” or other destruction device.
      2. A “look-alike bomb” means any apparatus or object that conveys the
           appearance of a bomb or other destructive device.
      3. A “bomb threat” is the communication, by any means whether verbal or non-
           verbal, that a bomb has been, or will be, placed on school premises, including
           possession or placement of a bomb or look-alike bomb on school premises.
      4. “School premises” means any school property, school buses, and any location
           where any school activity may take place.

C. Reporting of Bomb Threats
   A student who learns of a bomb threat or the existence of a bomb on school premises
   must immediately report such information to the building principal, teacher, or other
   employee in a position of authority.

   An employee of the school unit who learns of a bomb threat shall immediately inform
   the building administrator. The building administrator shall immediately take
   appropriate steps to protect the safety of students and staff. All bomb threats shall be
   reported immediately to the local law enforcement authority.

D. Student Discipline Consequences
   Making a bomb threat is a crime. Any student suspected of making a bomb threat
   shall be reported to law enforcement authorities for investigation and possible
   prosecution. Apart from any penalty imposed by law, and without regard to the
   existence or status of criminal charges, a student who makes a bomb threat shall be
   subject to disciplinary action.

   The administration shall suspend and may recommend expulsion for any student who
   makes a bomb threat.
                                                                2011-2012 Student Handbook 35



       E. Aiding Other Students In Making Bomb Threats
          A student who knowingly encourages, causes, aids or assists another student in
          making or communicating a bomb threat shall be subject to the disciplinary
          consequences described in Section D of this policy.


       F. Failure to Report a Bomb Threat
          A student who fails to report information or knowledge of a bomb threat or the
          existence of a bomb or other destructive devise in a school building or on school
          property may be subject to disciplinary consequences, which may include suspension
          and/or expulsion.

           A school system employee who fails to report information or knowledge of a bomb
           threat or the existence of a bomb on school premises will be subject to discipline up
           to and including termination of employment.

       G. Civil Liability
          The District reserves the right to bring suit against any individual responsible for a
          violation of this policy and to seek restitution and other damages as permitted by law.

       H. Lost Instructional Time
          Instructional time lost as a result of a bomb threat will be rescheduled at the earliest
          appropriate opportunity as determined by the superintendent within parameters set by
          the Board.

                                        HAZING POLICY

It is the policy of the Board of Education and school district that hazing activities of any types are
inconsistent with the educational process and will be prohibited at all times. Hazing is defined as:

       Doing any act or coercing another, including the victim, to do any act of initiation
       into any student or other organization that causes or creates a substantial risk of
       causing mental or physical harm to any person. Permission, consent, or
       assumption of risk by an individual subjected to hazing does not lessen the
       prohibition contained in this policy.

No administrator, faculty member, or other employee of the school district will encourage, permit,
condone, or tolerate hazing activities. No student, including leaders of student organizations, will
plan, encourage, or engage in any hazing.

Administrators, faculty members, and all other employees of the school district will be particularly
alert to possible situations, circumstances or events which might include hazing. If hazing or
planned hazing is discovered, involved students will be informed by the discovering school
employee of the prohibition contained in this policy and will be required to end all hazing activities
immediately. All hazing incidents will be reported to the superintendent.
                                                                 2011-2012 Student Handbook 36


Administrators, faculty members, students, and all other employees who fail to abide by this policy
may be subject to disciplinary action, and may be liable for civil and criminal penalties in
accordance with state law.

           COMPUTER NETWORK/INTERNET ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY

It is the policy of the Lyman School District to: (a) prevent user access over its computer network
to, or transmission of, inappropriate material via internet, electronic mail, or other forms of direct
electronic communications; (b) prevent unauthorized access and other unlawful online activity; (c)
prevent unauthorized online disclosure, use, or dissemination of personal information of minors;
and (d) comply with the Children’s Internet Protection Act.

To the extent practical, technology protection measures by using Fortigate shall be used to block or
filter the Internet, or other forms of electronic communications, access to inappropriate
information. Specifically, as required by the Children’s Internet Protection Act, blocking shall be
applied to visual depiction of material deemed obscene or child pornography, or to any material
deemed harmful to minors. Subject to staff supervision, technology protection measures may be
disabled or, in the case of minors, minimized only for bona fide research or other lawful purposes.

To the extent practical, steps shall be taken to promote the safety and security of users of the
Lyman School District online computer network when using electronic mail, chat rooms, instant
messaging, and other forms of direct electronic communications. Specifically, as required by the
Children’s Internet Protection Act, prevention of inappropriate network usage includes: (a)
unauthorized access, including so-called “hacking” and other unlawful activities; and (b)
unauthorized disclosure, use and dissemination of personal identification information regarding
minors. It shall be the responsibility of the Lyman School District staff to supervise and monitor
policy and the Children’s Internet Protection Act. Procedures of the disabling or otherwise
modifying any technology protection measures shall be the responsibility of the Technology
Coordinator or designated representatives.

INTERNET USE POLICY
INTERNET

Access to the internet is available to students and teachers of the school district. Online resources
will allow classroom projects such as pen pal discussions, scientific data collection, and
international cultural exchanges. The internet enables worldwide connection to electronic mail,
discussion groups, data bases, computer software and informational sources such as libraries and
museums. The goal of the district through online resources is to promote educational excellence
by facilitating resource sharing, innovation and communication within our own community, our
nation and worldwide.

With the access of online resources comes the availability of material that may not be considered
to be of educational value in the context of the school setting. Internet users, like traditional library
users, are responsible for their actions in accessing online resources. On a global network, it is
impossible to control all materials and an industrious user may discover controversial information.
However, it is the district’s belief that the valuable information and interaction on these networks
far outweigh the possibility that a user may locate material that is not consistent with the
educational goals of the district.
                                                               2011-2012 Student Handbook 37



                        NETWORKS
STUDENT USE OF COMPUTER NETWORKS

The use of the Lyman School District 42-1 (hereafter referred to as School District) network and
its connection to the Internet is a privilege, not a right. Before students have access to Internet,
they must sign the Acceptable Use Agreement. Guidelines are provided to make students aware of
the responsibilities associated with efficient, ethical and lawful use of network resources. If a
student violates any of these provisions, his or her account and privileges may be terminated,
future access through School District’s facilities may be denied, and the School District’s discipline
policies shall be applied. Students or their parents or guardians will be required to compensate the
district for any damage done to the network and/or hardware.

The School District shall make every effort to restrict access to inappropriate materials; however, it
is impossible to control all materials on a global network. Therefore, the District shall not be liable
for the content or viewing of any materials not prepared by the District.

RULES OF NETWORK USE

Use of the School District network facilities may only be made in conformance with this regulation
and the Acceptable Use Agreement signed by the student. Network users are expected to abide by
generally accepted rules of network etiquette.

The student will:
    a. be responsible for all use of the network under his/her account, regardless of whether
        access is gained with or without the student’s knowledge and/or consent;
    b. immediately notify the School District if he/she suspects any unauthorized use of his/her
        account. A student shall remain liable and responsible for any unauthorized use until the
        School District is notified of the suspected unauthorized use and has a reasonable
        opportunity to act upon such notice;
    c. not transmit any abusive, defamatory, obscene, profane, sexually explicit, threatening, or
        illegal material;
    d. not engage in any advertising or soliciting the sale or purchase of any goods, products, or
        services, or to solicit the performance of any activity which is prohibited by law;
    e. be responsible for any costs, fees, charges or expenses incurred under the student’s account
        number in connection with the use of the network, except such costs, fees, charges and
        expenses as the School District explicitly agrees to pay;
    f. not transmit copyrighted material without the express consent or authorization of the
        owner of the copyright;
    g. not give out his/her home address, phone number, or password;
    h. not use the network for personal e-mail, chat room, program downloading. etc.
Student accounts are considered the property of the District. The School District expressly
reserves the right, in its sole discretion to:
    a. change or eliminate any portion of any transmission of any user without notice or liability;
        review and edit any material to be transmitted by anyone on the network; (by reserving this
        right the School District assumes no obligation to review or edit any such material and
        assumes no responsibility of liabilities therefore.)
                                                                2011-2012 Student Handbook 38


     b. remove or delete any transmission the School District believes violates the School District’s
         policy or is harmful to others.
By signing the Acceptable Use Agreement, the student expressly agrees and recognizes that use of
the network is at the student’s own risk. The School District does not guarantee that the network
will be uninterrupted or error-free; nor does it make any warranty as to the results to be obtained
on or by the network or the Internet. Access to the network is provided on an “as is” basis without
warranties of any kind. Neither the School District nor any of its agents or employees shall be
liable for any direct, indirect, incidental, special or consequential damages arising out of the use of
or inability to use the network or out of any breach of any warranty.

INTERNET SAFETY EDUCATION

In accordance with the Protecting Children in the 21st Century Act, the Lyman School District
will provide education to students about appropriate online behavior in the following manner:
    The Kennebec and Presho site computer teachers will be responsible for conducting
    Internet Safety Lessons to all 2nd – 8th grade students.
    The High School Principal and the District Technology Coordinator will be responsible
    for organizing Internet Safety Lessons to all 9th – 12th grade students.
    It shall also be the responsibility of all Lyman School District educational staff to educate,
    supervise and monitor appropriate usage of computer network and internet access.

       STUDENT CUMULATIVE FOLDERS AND PERMANENT RECORDS POLICY

In order to provide students with appropriate instruction and educational services, it is necessary
for the district to maintain extensive and sometimes personal information about them and their
families. It is essential that pertinent information in these records be readily available to
appropriate school personnel, be accessible to the student's parents or legal guardian, or the
student in accordance with law, yet be guarded as confidential information.
It will be the responsibility of the superintendent to provide for the proper administration of
student records in keeping with State Law and Federal requirements, and to standardize
procedures for the collection of necessary information about individual students throughout the
district.

The Board wishes to make clear that all individual student records of the district are confidential
(this extends to giving out individual addresses and telephone numbers). The exception is
directory information. School officials will designate certain data relating to the students as
"directory" or "public" information. The release of this data does not require the consent of
students, parents or guardians.

The following information will be entitled Directory Information:

   •    Student's name, address and telephone listing
   •    Student's date and place of birth
   •    Student's major field of study
   •    Student's participation in officially recognized school activities and sports

The Lyman School District keeps a cumulative record and permanent record on every student
who enrolls at the school. These records are important to teachers and administrators.

Information that is recorded on these folders will be information essential for the school and that is
helpful in the education of the student.

Following is a list of the information that will be entered in the cumulative folder and permanent
record.

                                      STUDENT SURVEYS

Student surveys that are funded in whole or part by the U.S. Department of Education and ask
students for personal information in any of eight categories require prior written consent before a
student may participate in the survey. If a survey contains one or more of the identified categories,
schools and contractors must protect student privacy and give parents the right to inspect the
survey.
The eight categories are:

                                  STUDENT RECRUITMENT

Pursuant to the federal education law, “No Child Left Behind Act,” the Lyman School District
must disclose to military recruiters and institutions of higher learning, upon request, the names,
addresses and telephone numbers of high school students.

Parents/guardians or eligible 18-year-old students may provide written notification to the high
school principal or guidance counselor requesting directory information not be released to military
recruiters and institutions of higher learning. Such notification must be dated and signed by
parent/guardian or 18-tear-old students.

The Lyman School District will also provide on-site access for the recruitment of high school
students by military recruiters and institutions of higher learning. The building principal may make
the determination of when the recruitment meetings are to take place and reserves the right to
deny such meeting where the holding of such meeting will materially and substantially interfere
with the proper and orderly operation of the school. Organizations wishing to recruit at the high
school must make arrangements with the principal or guidance counselor who will determine the
schedule for the recruitment meeting. Scheduled visits by recruiters will be made known to the
student body.

On-site follow-up meetings with individual students will be permitted only upon the request of the
student(s) and with the approval of the building principal or guidance counselor.

On-site access for the recruitment of high school students may be specifically denied in writing by
the parent/guardian or 18-year-old student.
                                                                2011-2012 Student Handbook 43


                REQUEST FOR STUDENT SOCIAL SECURITY NUMBER

All South Dakota school districts are becoming a part of a state-wide computer reporting system,
which uses student social security numbers to record information about your child. This
information is provided to the South Dakota Department of Education and Cultural Affairs. The
Department has the authority in law to "establish a system for gathering and reporting of
educational data for the keeping of adequate educational and financial records and for the
evaluation of educational progress." Therefore, we ask that you, the parent, provide your child's
social security number although you are not legally required to do so.

The Department of Education and Cultural Affairs will use this information to determine how
much money your school district received from the state and federal government. This
information is also used to judge the quality of the state's educational programs, to improve
instruction, to follow trends in student enrollment, and to track student participation in various
programs.

As a parent you do not have to provide your child's social security number. If you choose not to
provide the number, the school district staff might need to submit another type of report to receive
money distributed by the state and/or federal government.

If you do not wish to have your child(ren)'s social security number released to the South Dakota
Department of Cultural Affairs, please send your written notification of this to Bruce H. Carrier,
Superintendent, Lyman School District, P.O. Box 1000, Presho, SD 57568.

          ALCOHOL/DRUG ABUSE BY STUDENTS AND CHEMICAL ABUSE

The Board recognizes its share of the responsibility for the health, welfare, and safety of the
students who attend the district’s schools. Alcohol and drug dependency is an illness and a hazard
that can interfere with a student’s ability to learn and function responsibly in the school setting and
community. Anything that can interfere with the development of an adolescent, therefore, must be
evaluated as to its impact to both the young person and the community. Psychoactive and mood
altering drugs can destroy the health and well being of an individual. The school community
defines drug use as a serious health problem and is committed to discouraging this behavior and to
encourage young people to seek help should a problem arise.

As educators, we recognize that chemical abuse (drugs and alcohol) has become a serious problem
in our country. We accept our obligation to establish a positive environment in which these
problems can be addressed locally in a helpful and supportive rather than a primitive way. One of
our goals is to prevent abuse. Accomplishing this goal, we realize, will entail training teachers,
counselors, and other staff members to educate the community about drug abuse. Other goals are
to teach staff to identify chemical abuse problems and to know what resources are available to
address these problems if they are observed. The administration recognizes that the problems of
chemical abuse exceed the boundaries of the school. Therefore, we are prepared to cooperate
with agencies and community groups that address these problems.

The following document outlines policy on student abuse of psychoactive or mood altering
chemicals in the school district. The policy is in effect on property owned, leased or maintained
                                                                 2011-2012 Student Handbook 44


by the school district, at all school sanctioned activities on and off campus, on vehicles used to
transport students to and from school or other activities and in vehicles parked on school property.

Students and parent members of the school community are expected to be aware of and
understand these policies and comply with them. A copy of the policy will be provided to all
students and parents.

A student shall not possess, use, transfer, conceal, sell, attempt to sell, deliver, nor be under the
influence of narcotics, drugs, or alcohol, materials/substances represented to be a drug or
controlled substance, or chemical substances which affect psychological functions or affect the
educational system of the school. Students should not engage in drug use/abuse nor possess
paraphernalia specific to the use of chemicals.

Students who use prescription drugs authorized by a licensed physician do not violate this policy if
the students conform to the prescription and appropriate school policies.

                                           VIOLATIONS

The following procedures will be followed in dealing with possession, use, transmission or being
under the influence of chemicals:

A) Possession or Use
   a) The administration will try to notify the parent(s)/guardian(s) by phone to explain the
      incident and arrange a conference.
   b) Pursuant to student due process, the student may be suspended for a period of three (3)
      days to the remainder of the school year.
   c) The administration will notify the parent(s)/guardian(s) in writing of the suspension within
      thirty-six (36) hours.
   d) The administration may notify available law enforcement authorities.
   e) The Lyman School District strongly recommends that students with chemical abuse
      problems seek professional evaluation and treatment from a trained chemical dependency
      counselor or a licensed physician trained in chemical dependency. Fees for this
      assessment and treatment are the student and parent(s)/guardian(s) responsibility.
   f) In case of second and subsequent offenses, the administration will recommend to the
      school board that the student be expelled unless the following procedure is followed:
      (1) The student must agree to be assessed by a trained chemical dependency counselor or
           a licensed physician trained in chemical dependency.
      (2) Upon appropriate authorization, the agency or professional notifies the administration
           that the student has been assessed and does or does not require treatment. If the
           student is accepting needed treatment, the recommendation for expulsion may be
           commuted. Fees for this assessment and/or treatment are the responsibility of the
           student and family.

B) Supplying/Distributing or Selling Alcohol and Other Drugs or Material Represented to be a
   Controlled Substance:
   1) The administration will try to notify the parent/guardian by phone to explain the incident
     and arrange a conference.
                                                               2011-2012 Student Handbook 45


   2) Supplying or selling chemicals may result in being suspended for a period of ten (10) days
      to the rest of the school year.
   3) Within thirty-six (36) hours, the administration will notify parent(s)/guardian(s) in writing of
      the suspension.
   4) The administration will refer the case to available law enforcement authorities.
   5) A hearing on the case will be conducted by the school board pursuant to due process rules
      for expulsion. Expulsion may be recommended by the administration.

C) Students whose observed behavior indicated possible use of alcohol and/or other drugs will be
   referred to the building administrator. The building administrator and/or “first-responder”
   medical personnel will determine whether to contact the parent for further instruction, refer
  to the emergency authorization form or immediately seek additional medical treatment.

                            IMMUNIZATION REQUIREMENTS

South Dakota Law (SDCL 13-28-7.1) requires that any pupil entering school shall, prior to
admission be required to present to school authorities certification from a licensed physician that
admission,
he or she has received, or is in the process of receiving immunization for childhood diseases. All
transfer students are required to have the following:
        1. Four or more does of DTP/DT/Td, one administered after the 4th birthday. For
            students older than 7 years who have not received any prior dose of DTP, they need a
            minimum of a three dose series of adult Td vaccine.
        2. Three or more does of OPV (polio) or enhanced IPV with one dose given after the 4th
            birthday.
        3. Two doses of MMR vaccine administered after 12 months of age or physician
            diagnosed measles or serological evidence of rubella antibodies.

                    STUDENT COMMUNICABLE DISEASES POLICY

The quality and quantity of learning for each student is in direct proportion to the student's
physical, mental, emotional, and social level of health. The board recognizes its responsibility to
provide a healthy, safe environment for all school students and employees, and in addition, further
recognizes its responsibility that, to the extent possible, all students should be permitted to
continuously attend school and to participate in school activities.

Students who are afflicted with a communicable contagious, and/or infectious disease and who are
infected with communicable parasites or who are liable to transmit such a disease or parasite may
be excluded from school attendance.

A determination of whether an infected student should be excluded from the classroom or school
activities shall be made on a case-by-case basis, under the direction of the principal and
superintendent.
In situations where the decision requires additional expertise and knowledge, the principal and
superintendent will contact the school's health officer for assistance. Further referral in
determining the proper course of action may require the establishment of an advisory committee.
                                                               2011-2012 Student Handbook 46


The advisory committee may be composed of:
   1. a representative from the State Health Department
   2. the student's physician
   3. the student's parents or guardians
   4. the school principal or designee
   5. the school health officer
   6. the superintendent or designee
   7. primary teacher(s)

In making the determination, the advisory committee shall consider:
   1. the behavior, developmental level, and medical condition of the student;
   2. the expected type(s) of interaction with others in the school setting;
   3. the impact on both the infected student and others in that setting;
   4. the South Dakota Department of Health guidelines and policies; and
   5. the recommendation of the County Health Officer, which may be controlling.

The advisory committee may officially request assistance from the State Department of Health.

If it is determined that the student will not be permitted to attend class and/or participate in school
activities, arrangements will be made to provide an alternate educational program. If that requires
personal contact between student and school employees, only trained volunteer employees shall be
utilized.

Public information will not be revealed about the student who may be infected. If the student is
permitted to remain in the school setting, the following procedure will be followed by the
superintendent/principal:
        Information will be provided, as appropriate, to school employees who have regular
        contact with the student, as to the student's medical condition and other factors
        needed for consideration in carrying out job responsibilities.

Health guidelines for school attendance are established and interpreted within the context of the
case. The guidelines are not inclusive but are available to be used as a resource, school personnel
will refer to school health professionals for specific judgments in interpreting the guidelines.

Instruction in appropriate handling of blood and body fluids will be provided. Hand washing after
contamination, food preparation and health/hygiene care performed in different sink and work
areas, maintenance cleaning and other personal hygiene measures are part of creating a healthy
environment.
                                                           2011-2012 Student Handbook 47

       obligation of each employee and student to become fully informed of the provision of this
       policy. Copies will be distributed to all administrative units serving both employees and
       students. Copies will be posted at appropriate locations throughout the District and the
       policy will be announced in appropriate District publications, including student manuals.

V) Making a Complaint
   a) An employee who feels he or she, while performing contracted services, has been subject

                                NON DISCRIMINATION POLICY

It is the policy of the Lyman School District 42-1 that no person be subjected to discrimination on
the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, age, physical disabilities, or marital status in
any program, service, or activity for which the school is responsible, as required by Title VI, Title
IX, Section 504, and other state and federal laws. The Lyman School Superintendent is the local
coordinator for the policy. Inquiries concerning the application of the nondiscrimination policy
may be referred to Superintendent Bruce H. Carrier, 201 S. Birch Avenue, Presho, South Dakota
57568 or by phone at 895-2579, or to the Regional Director, Department of Education, Office for

                               BUS TRANSPORTATION POLICY

It is the objective of the Lyman School District to provide safe, efficient and timely bus
transportation to and from school. In order to achieve this objective, the bus routes will be
operated in accordance with the rules established by the School Board.

    1. Students are to meet the bus on time at the pick up site. If the bus is on schedule, the
       driver will wait no more than three minutes for a student.
    2. Student safety is the responsibility of the parents before pick up and after the students are
       dropped off.
    3. When roads become hazardous because of snow, ice, or mud, the bus driver will make the
       decision whether or not the bus should travel bad roads. If students cannot be picked up
       or delivered home, parents will be notified.
    4. Students are not required to ride the school bus; however, if bus transportation is provided,
       mileage will not be paid.
    5. Bus routes will be planned by the bus operator and the superintendent to run in the most
       practical and safe manner.
    6. It is recognized that some routes will be entirely circular and some will consist of circular
       and linear portions. Students living on a circular portion of a route will be dropped off in
       the same sequence as they are picked up in the morning (first on, first off principle).
       Students living on linear portions of routes will be picked up last and dropped off first.
    7. The bus driver is the person responsible for the control and discipline of the students while
       they are being transported. Students are expected to extend the same courteous manner to
       the bus driver and other passengers as to the faculty members at school.
    8. If a child is disciplined by the bus driver, for whatever reason, a patron does not have the
       right to speak to the driver without a school administrator present. Therefore, a parent
       must call one of the following district telephone numbers to arrange a conference:
       895-2579 (district administrative office), 895-2662 (high school) or 869-2213 (middle
       school). If a parent or guardian does not follow this policy, his or her child may be
       removed from the bus for an extended period of time.
                                                              2011-2012 Student Handbook 52

                                 PUBLIC COMPLAINT POLICY

Constructive criticism of the schools will be welcomed by the Board when it is motivated by a
sincere desire to improve the quality of the educational program or to equip the schools to do their
tasks more effectively.

Whenever a complaint is made directly to the Board as a whole or to an individual Board
member, the individual or group involved will be advised to take their concerns to the appropriate
staff member. Exception to this will be made when the complaint concerns Board action,
operation and/or policy.

The Board believes that complaints and grievances are best handled and resolved as close to their
origin as possible, and that the staff should be given every opportunity to consider the issues and
attempt to resolve the problem prior to involvement by the Board. Therefore, the proper
channeling of complaints involving instruction, discipline, or learning materials will be as follows:
        1. Teacher
        2. Principal

        4. Board

Public Complaint About School Personnel

Constructive criticism of the schools is welcomed by the Lyman School District when it is
motivated by a sincere desire to improve the quality of the educational program and to help the
school personnel in performing their tasks more effectively.

The Board places trust in its employees and desires to support their action in such a manner that
employees are freed from the unnecessary, spiteful, or negative criticism and complaints.

Whenever a complaint is made directly to the Board as a whole or to a Board member as an
individual, it shall be referred to the school administration for study and possible solutions. The
individual employee involved shall be advised of the nature of the complaint and will be given
every opportunity for explanation, comment, and presentation of the facts as he or she sees them.

In case of discipline or other school matters relating to their children, parents/guardians will first
discuss the matter with the teacher. If, for some reason they are not satisfied, they may further
discuss that matter with the following persons in the following order:
        1. Principal
        2. Superintendent
        3. Board of Education
                                                               2011-2012 Student Handbook 54


                                 PARENTS RIGHT TO KNOW

The Federal education law “No Child Left Behind” requires that all parents in a school which
receives Title I funds be notified and given the opportunity to request information about the
professional qualifications of classroom teachers and/or paraprofessionals instructing their child.

If you are interested in this information, you may send your written request to the building
principal who will provide a response in a timely manner. The information received must include,
at a minimum, the following:
        1. Whether the teacher has met State qualification and licensing criteria for the grade
            levels and subject areas in which the teacher provides instruction.
        2. Whether the teacher is teaching under emergency or other provisional status through
            which State qualifications or licensing criteria have been waived.
        3. The baccalaureate degree major of the teacher and any other graduate certification or
            degree held by the teacher, and the field of discipline of the certification or degree.
        4. Whether the child is provided services by paraprofessionals and, if so, their
            qualifications.

Parents may also request information on the level of achievement of their child in each of the State
academic assessments and timely notice that their child has been assigned or has been taught for
four or more consecutive weeks by a teacher who is not highly qualified.

                   COMPLAINT POLICY FOR FEDERAL PROGRAMS

A parent, student, employee, or district stakeholder who has a complaint regarding the use of
federal NCLB funds and is unable to solve the issue, may address the complaint in writing to the
district’s superintendent.

Disputes addressing the enrollment, transportation (including inter-district disputes), and other
barriers to the education of children and youth experiencing homelessness are also addressed
under this procedure. Parents, guardians, and unaccompanied youth may initiate the dispute
resolution process directly at the school they choose, as well as the district or district’s homeless
liaison’s office. The parent or guardian or unaccompanied youth shall be provided with a written
explanation of the school’s decision including the rights of the parent, guardian, or youth to
appeal the decision. Students should be provided with all services for which they are eligible
while disputes are resolved.

   The superintendent will investigate, within one week, the circumstances of the complaint
   and render a decision, within two weeks, after receipt of the complaint.
   The superintendent will notify the complainant of the decision in writing. The complainant
   will be allowed one week to react to the decision before it becomes final.
   The complainant will either accept or disagree with the decision and will provide such
   acknowledgment in writing, addressed to the district superintendent.
   If the issue is not resolved with the superintendent, the complainant will be forwarded to the
   district’s Board of Education for further review. The parent or guardian or unaccompanied
   youth shall be provided with a written explanation of the district’s decision including the
   rights of the parent, guardian, or youth to appeal the decision.
                                                               2011-2012 Student Handbook 55


   Unresolved complaints may be forwarded by the stakeholder to the South Dakota
   Department of Education for review. (consult SD Department of Education Complaint
   Procedure.)

                                SCHOOL DISTRICT WEBSITE

The Lyman School District Website address is: lyman.k12.sd.us. Anyone wishing to add new
information to the Website should contact the school district Website coordinator.

                LYMAN SCHOOL DISTRICT ASBESTOS REINSPECTION

In accordance to the Asbestos Hazard Emergency Response Act (AHERA) of 1987, the Lyman
School District recently conducted the districts’ tri-annual asbestos re-inspection and update of the
asbestos management plan.

No significant changes were found in the remaining asbestos containing materials located in the
district and only continued surveillance was needed for response action.

Review of the Lyman School District tri-annual re-inspection report and management plan is
available for public inspection at the administration office in Presho and Kennebec.

                  FOODS CONTAINING PEANUT PRODUCTS POLICY

The Lyman School District has the responsibility to provide a healthy and safe meal for all their
students. With the increased awareness of the serious health risk that some students may have due
to their allergic reaction to foods containing peanut products, the Lyman School District food
service program at Kennebec and Presho will not knowingly prepare or serve foods containing
peanut products.

Students are free to bring their own sack lunch from home, but the school district encourages
parents/guardians not to include peanut products in these lunches as this could also present a
problem for a student with a “severe peanut allergy.”

Parents/guardians who provide “treats” for special occasions are encouraged to provide treats that
are “peanut free.” Staff members should be aware of those students in their classroom setting who
have a “severe peanut allergy.”

                    LYMAN SCHOOL DISTRICT WELLNESS POLICY


In the Child Nutrition and WIC Reauthorization Act of 2004, PL 105-268, the US Congress
established a new requirement for all school districts that use federal dollars for school lunch and
breakfast to develop and implement a wellness policy by the start of the 2006-2007 school year.
The wellness policy of the school district should address the components of nutrition education,
nutrition standards, physical activity, and other school-based activities.

A healthy school environment goes beyond school meals in the cafeteria. The Lyman School
                                                              2011-2012 Student Handbook 56
