2. TO ALL INCOMING 7TH GRADE STUDENTS AND THEIR PARENTS:

During the week of August 4, 2008, you will receive a postcard in the U.S. Mail
with information regarding the first day of school, Monday, August 18, 2008.
Students will be assigned an Advisory class; this room will be your “Homeroom”
for the year. Students from all of our “feeder” elementary schools will make up
this group. The advisory classes will be posted on the office window after 4:00
p.m. on the Friday before school resumes (8/15/08).

All students will receive their daily class schedules during their Homeroom on the
first day of school – August 18th. This period will be longer than usual so that
schedules can be reviewed and questions answered.

In this handbook for students and parents, we have tried to discuss some of the
most frequently asked questions. If you find, after looking this handbook over,
that you have other questions, please feel free to call the school office.

We want your two years at Chipman to be not only good ones for academic
growth, but also good ones for you socially. You will find many people here who
will be willing to help you if problems arise. Your teachers, of course, will always
be here. But don’t forget your friends in the office.

                                      Principal
                                      Vice Principal
                                      Counselor
                                      Campus Supervisor

You will always find their office doors open.

                                   FOG DELAYS

All Bakersfield City Schools will be in operation at their regularly scheduled
starting time during the fog season. Delays of school bus services will continue
when conditions of low visibility occur. Students who ride school buses can
expect two-hour delays in the operation of buses when foggy weather conditions
exist.

REGARDLESS OF WHAT ACTION OTHER KERN COUNTY SCHOOL
DISTRICTS TAKE IN RESPONSE TO FOGGY WEATHER CONDITIONS, THE
DELAY ANNOUNCEMENTS FOR THE BAKERSFIELD CITY SCHOOL
DISTRICT APPLY ONLY TO THE MORNING PICK-UP TIME OF STUDENTS
WHO RIDE DISTRICT BUSES. SCHOOLS WILL OPEN FOR OPERATION AT
THEIR REGULAR STARTING TIMES.

                               5. HOMEROOM

All students are assigned to a teacher who will act as ―an advisor.‖ Students
report to their Homeroom each morning for attendance and announcements and
first period class. The Homeroom also represents a section of government within
the school. It is the place where decisions on school problems can be reached,
opinions can be voiced, Student Council matters discussed, school spirit
promoted, advice and guidance may be secured, and important school
information is obtained.



                                        4
                                 6. DAILY WIRE

Everyday this bulletin will be read to you during Homeroom. Each teacher
receives a copy. It contains information about club meetings, sports practices
after school, special events, and anything else students should know or be
reminded about. It is your responsibility to know what is in the Daily Wire.

                     7. BINDER AND ORGANIZER POLICY

We feel that if a student is prepared when he/she enters the classroom their
chance of success is greatly improved. Every student at Chipman will be
required to carry a hardcover three ring binder (no Peechee Folders), paper,
pencils, pen and pencil pouch. The binder should include dividers for each of
their subject areas.

                                 8. TEXTBOOKS

It is our desire to make textbooks available to students for use throughout the
entire school year, or on a day-to-day basis for homework assignments. Since
textbooks represent a considerable investment of tax dollars, parents will be
asked to sign a textbook loan agreement that will show the price for books that
are assigned for their child’s use. In the event that the books are not returned,
parents will be expected to pay the replacement price. Students will also be
expected to pay for defaced or damaged books. WE WILL BE UNABLE TO
RELEASE REPORT CARDS UNTIL ALL DEBTS ARE CLEARED.

                                 9. HOMEWORK

Students can expect more homework in junior high school than they had in
elementary school. You will be expected to make arrangements with your
teachers to come in before or after school to make up assignments after
absences or to seek extra help and explanations when you need it. It is
suggested that you set aside at least ONE HOUR each evening for uninterrupted
study.

            10. REPORT CARDS/STUDENT PROGRESS REPORT

Report cards will be sent home at the end of each semester (2 times during the
year.) Semester mid-term grades will be given to each student in the form of a
Student Progress Report. These forms are identical to the regular report card.
Two copies are provided. Both copies are sent home with the student. The
parent copy is to be returned to the homeroom teacher after the parent has
signed the report card. Parent-teacher conferences may be scheduled in order




                                         5
to set up a program of help for the student. Report cards will be held for
outstanding debts, lost or overdue library books, textbooks and damaged books.

Parents should not live by the old adage: ―No new is good news.‖ They are
encouraged to make inquiries at any time and are always welcome on campus.
Please check into the office first.


                                  11. AWARDS

Awards are presented at the end of each year to students who have earned
recognition. Recognition is given for outstanding achievement, service, sports
and arts.

Eighth grade students will be screened each year to determine the winners of
awards given by various organizations in our community. There are also other
awards presented to the outstanding students in both 7th and 8th grades in the
different subject areas.

                          13. STUDENT GOVERNMENT

Student government is an important phase of school life. All students are
members of the student body organization. The Student Council guides our
student government. It consists of your elected officers and elected
representative from each of the Homerooms. This body governs the student
organization and plans most of the Student Body activities with the approval of
the Principal.
                            14. SCHOOL LIBRARY

The library has over 19,000 books for student, teacher and parent use. There
are computers available for student use. The library has an electronic card
catalog, which allows students to access Library Media Center materials using
computers. Students are able to search by author, title, subject, and key words.
The library hours are 7:00 – 3:00 daily. Students are encouraged to take care of
their library needs before school, at recess, at lunch recess, or after school.
Students use Chipman I.D. cards to check out books. The library uses student
workers. Library workers are chosen by the library media teacher during the first
two weeks of school. Students applying to be library workers must fill out an
application signed by a parent the first week of the school year. Parent
volunteers are always welcome.

                           15. PHYSICAL EDUCATION

Physical Education is a required class just as mathematics and English. Gym
clothes are not required, but suitable clothing (including shoes) is needed for
participation. Athletic shoes are required for running and other physical activity.
Students not appropriately dressed for P.E. will be assigned other activities,
which may include walking the track, or written assignments.

P.E. excuses need to be taken care of before school. Parents may request their
student not participate in P.E. from one to three days due to illness or injury. A
doctor’s note is required for periods beyond three days.

                          16. AFTER SCHOOL SPORTS

All students have the opportunity to try out for and participate in our after school
athletics program.

              FALL – Flag Football (Boys) and Volleyball (Girls)
              FALL – Cross Country (Boys & Girls)

                                          7
In order to qualify to be on our teams, a student must have at least a ―C‖ average
(2.0 grade point average) and no ―F’s)‖ in conduct. These teams play in a league
against the other nine junior highs and middle schools in the Bakersfield City
School District. Bus transportation is provided following practice each day for
students who participate in our after school programs and rides the bus to
school. Team members only are transported via school bus to games taking
place on other campuses. Students with parents are welcome to watch games
with other schools. Game time is 2:45– 3:45 p.m. The after school sports
program is a competitive league. Teams may also participate in designated
tournaments. THEIR PARENT OR GUARDIAN MUST ACCOMPANY
STUDENTS WISHING TO STAY AFTER SCHOOL TO WATCH A GAME.

                                17. ABSENCES

For your convenience, we have a 24-hour message phone to report your
student’s absence. The telephone number is 631-4908. Please report the
following information:

                          Your name
                          Your child’s name and homeroom
                          Your telephone number
                          Reason for the absence, and if possible, how long.

                          18. STUDENT DISCIPLINE

At Chipman, we believe that every student has the right to learn, every teacher
has the right to teach, and we all have the responsibility to respect this.

Good student discipline requires awards and reinforcement for appropriate
behavior just as it requires consequences for inappropriate behavior. Our
purpose is to maintain a warm positive school climate in which we celebrate
student successes in learning. Therefore, all students will…

             1. Show courtesy and respect for others.
             2. Not disrupt the learning process.
             3. Show respect for property.
             4. Be on time, ready to work, and stay on task until finished.
             5. Use safe conduct at all times.
             6. Refrain from consumption of unauthorized food or drink in class.
             7. Not chew gum on campus at any time.
             8. Adhere to the District and school dress code.




                                        8
                                19. TARDINESS

Tardiness at any time will not be condoned. Pupils should be in the classrooms,
in their seats, and prepared for work at the time the tardy bell rings. “Prepared”
means that you have materials necessary for class, i.e. paper, pencil and 3-ring
binder.

One-minute tardies to school are subject to after school detention. Students who
are tardy more than three times to any class will be referred to noon detention.
The only excused tardies are to the doctor, dentist, funeral or illness that has
been verified by a parent. To excuse a doctor or dentist tardy the student must
arrive to school with a note from their office.

            20. NOON DETENTION/AFTER SCHOOL DETENTION

Noon Detention – Will be assigned by office staff.
After School Detention – only assigned by the office staff. It is held from 2:00 –
3:00 p.m. after school. Transportation will be provided for students who normally
ride the bus. Parents are notified of after school detention either by note or
verbally.

                               21. DRESS CODE

The following Dress Code was established to meet the California Educational
Code. Students are expected to wear clothes that meet acceptable standards in
safety, health, and neatness. Extremes in dress or grooming that cause undue
attention or become a disruptive influence in the classroom are not allowed.
OUR HOPE IS THAT WHEN A STUDENT LEAVES FOR SCHOOL IN THE
MORNING THEIR FAMILY WILL BE PLEASED WITH THE STUDENT’S
APPEARANCE.

      1. Shorts and skirts may not be shorter than arm’s length.

      2. Strapless and halter dresses, blouses, body suits or crop tops are
         definitely NOT acceptable for school wear. The mid-section or

to work successfully with your fellow students and school personnel. Use these
positive actions daily and see the great effect they have on yourself and those
around you.

                              23. HALL PASSES

During class time students are expected to have a hall pass from their teacher
when they are not in the classroom. Students are expected to use the restroom
before school, during recess, and at lunch. If there is a problem with this please
contact the school office. Passes can be given during class for emergencies only
at the discretion of the teacher in order to minimize class disruption and
maximize student learning.




                                        10
                              24. LUNCH PERMITS

Lunch passes will be given to those students leaving campus, to go home only,
during the lunch period. A form explaining the rules and tardy procedure must be
signed by the parent and the student, and be on file in the school office. Parents
wishing to take their student to lunch must come into the office and sign the
student out. The student must return to school before the end of the lunch
period, or be assigned noon detention the following day. STUDENTS ARE NOT
PERMITTED TO GO HOME WITH FRIENDS.

                                 25. CAFETERIA

FIRST WEEK OF SCHOOL - If the student is from another Bakersfield City
School and the student was on a free or reduced lunch, they will be allowed free
or reduced meals for the first 20 days. A NEW APPLICATION FOR FREE OR
REDUCED MEALS MUST BE FILLED OUT EACH YEAR.

All students must use their Student ID Card in the breakfast, lunch and A-la-carte
line. The ID cards have their picture, name, SID number and bar code. Students
may pre-purchase meals before school or during recess. To help the serving line
move more efficiently money is NOT accepted during serving time. Pre-
purchased meals are entered into students accounts daily. Meals are deducted
from student’s account when card is scanned. Any student without their I.D. card
may eat, but must wait in the ―no card line‖.

Students will be allowed to borrow or charge, but may do so only two (2) times.
After that, they will be given an alternate meal, in which the main dish is replaced
with an alternate. These must also be paid for.


Student lunches are $1.30 and breakfast is $.50. Reduced price lunch is
$.40, breakfast is $.30.

Our cafeteria also serves A-la-carte lunch items. If a student does not wish to eat
the regular lunch, there are other food items to choose. A-la-Carte is sold on
cash only basis. No charges will be allowed.

                   26. VALUABLES, BACKPACKS, PURSES

Students should be very careful with their backpacks, purses, and valuables.
Large sums of money are not needed at school and should not be brought by
students. Should you lose your personal property report it immediately to your
teacher or the office. A lost and found area is located in the office. ALL
STUDENTS ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR OWN THINGS.

                         27. ITEMS TO LEAVE AT HOME


Cell Phones             Skateboards/Rollerblades               Electronic Items
Radios/Walkman          Grinding Shoes                         Cameras
Pagers                  Toys/Stuffed Animals                   Frisbees
C.D’s                   Blankets                               Collectable Cards
Permanent Markers (Sharpies) MP3 Players                       Laser Pointers

These items and others that are similar are to be left at home. It is our
experience that they cause disturbances and pose temptation for others. Items
of this type will be collected, kept in the office and returned at a later time. In
some instances the student may face disciplinary action and the parent or
