Damage to any textbook after issuance to students will result in a fine. Students who lose their textbooks should check the Lost and Found. If the book is not found in three days, students will be required to purchase another book. Students will not be issued more textbooks at the beginning of a semester if they have not cleared their books from the previous semester. Report cards and transcripts may be withheld. Senior textbooks must be cleared before graduation. Transportation The Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City Independent School District shall provide transportation for eligible pupils who reside at least two (2) miles from school. Student conduct on school buses is attached as Appendix II. The district shall also provide special transportation for exceptional children residing in the district, provided the student is unable to utilize existing transportation and would be unable to attend school unless such special transportation is provided. Visitors The State of Texas loitering law prohibits unauthorized visitors in or around public schools (Texas Education Code 4.23a). Parents are invited to visit the schools to confer with teachers and principals relative to the instruction of their children and should check in through the school office. At no time should a visitor call a teacher from the class for a conference at the door of the room. Except for emergencies, parents are expected to arrange conferences by appointment. Other than parents/guardians, lunch visitors will not be permitted. SCUCISD Board Policy (GKC, Local) follows: All visitors to the schools, including parents and Board members, are welcome to visit the campus. Visitors must first report to the principal’s office. Visits to individual classrooms during instructional time shall be permitted only with the Principal’s approval, and such visits shall not be permitted if their duration or frequency interferes with the delivery of instruction or disrupts the normal school environment. STUDENT DRIVING REGULATIONS Registration All vehicles driven to school by students will be registered and parked in the proper lots. 45

Reckless driving and speeding will not be tolerated. Students must leave their cars as soon as they arrive at school and are not to return to them at any time during the school day without permission from the office, except seniors and vocational co-op students leaving school at appropriate times. Students are advised not to leave their vehicles unattended overnight or over the weekends in the parking lots. Students who choose to do so, should park their vehicles in the student parking, by the Field House.

DISCIPLINE MANAGEMENT Policies and Regulations Jurisdiction The District has jurisdiction over its students during the regular school day (8:15am – 4:15pm) and while going to and from school on District transportation. The District’s jurisdiction includes any activities during the school day on school grounds, attendance at any school-related activity regardless of time or location, and any school-related misconduct regardless of time or location. Boys/Girls Town Education Model The Boys Town Education Model has been adopted and is included as one of the proactive intervention strategies used in the SCUCISD. This model offers expertise to help make schools safer and better places to learn. It expands the dialogue about the importance of redefining what a safe school is – a place where students and teachers respect one another and cooperate so learning can occur, a place where open communications is a priority, a place where there is a system for resolving disputes, a place that opens its doors to the surrounding community and welcomes its residents as partners in learning. The Boys Town Model supports such school goals as: increased school attendance, following school and class rules, improving relationships and interactions with teachers and administrators, improving academic performance, building appropriate peer interaction skills, decreasing out-of- school suspensions, and the probability of school drop out.
