Work Permit Information
All minors under age 18 (including minors employed by parents) must have Work Permits. Exempt: minors who have high school diplomas or equivalent (passed the state proficiency examination or GED). Applications are available at each middle school and high school in the Redlands Unified School District and are issued by the school. Work permits must be renewed at the start of each new school year or at the time the student obtains a new job. Work permits must be kept on file at the minor’s work site. Work permits serve as age certificates and state the maximum hours minors may work. Minors must meet mandatory school attendance laws in order to obtain work permits. Public schools have the legal right to restrict or reduce the type of employment and/or the hours of work if evidence is shown that the schoolwork or health of the minor is being impaired by employment. Work permits are not required for minors engaged in the following types of employment: Private homes doing occasional odd jobs, Sale or delivery of newspaper, if self-employed, Agricultural or domestic work on property owned, operated, or controlled by minor’s parents.

Discipline
Statement of the Board of Education
BP 5144
Philosophy Statement:
It is the philosophy of the Redlands Unified School District that each and every student in the district is entitled to an equal opportunity to participate in the educational program. In order to provide this, it is essential that adequate control be maintained in the classroom and educational setting.
 
No person or student has the right to interrupt, restrict, or prevent other students from being provided with an education which is rightfully theirs. Thus, every pupil shall have an opportunity to receive an education without fear of intimidation, threats, coercion, disruptions, etc. Any activity which abrogates this right, by whomsoever, shall be vigorously prevented by any and all legal means.
 
The Board of Education of the Redlands Unified School District in support of the aims of public education, believes that the behavior of students attending public schools shall reflect the good citizenship demanded of members in a democratic society. Self-discipline (responsibility for one’s actions) is one of the important goals of education. The Board of Education believes also, that while education is qualified by, first, eligibility requirements and by, second, performance  requirements, the courts speak of education as a limited right or privilege. Should the pupil fail to perform those duties required of him upon attendance in public schools, he may then be excluded from the school.
 
This position has been stated by the California courts as follows: “to the end that the public school system may in full measure function according to its purposes, there must, of course, be rules and regulations for the government thereof and these the legislature has either directly provided or has vested the school authorities with the right and power to prescribe the course of study to be followed in the various grades of the system, and to maintain at all times the discipline indispensably necessary to the successful prosecution of the high purposes thereof. To all such regulations if they be reasonable or not violative of their fundamental rights or of those of their parents or guardians, the pupils are bound to conform or suffer a denial of the right to attend the public schools” (Hardwich vs. Board of Trustees 54 C.A. 696)
 
In conformity with the State Code of Education, court decisions, and others, the Board of Education establishes the following policy regarding student behavior and the management thereof:
 
General Policy Statement:
A. Students shall respect all constituted authorities. Agents of this constituted authority are all teachers, counselors, principals, or other certificated or classified personnel who are given authority over pupils. This shall include conformity to school rules and regulations, and those provisions of the law which apply to the conduct of juveniles or minors.
 
B. No student shall deprive any other student or group of students an opportunity to gain an education. Thus, any action, behavior, or practice which interferes with this right shall not be tolerated. If, in the judgment of a principal, teacher, or counselor, a student is causing others to lose their right to an education within the total educational setting, he/she may be suspended. Habitual violations of board policy regulation student conduct shall be grounds for exclusion or expulsion. Non-students who cause similar disruptions shall be given over to the police authorities.
 
C. High personal standards of courtesy, decency, morality, clean language, honesty and wholesome relationships with others shall be maintained. Respect for real and personal property will be shown by all.
 
D. Every student who gives evidence of a sincere desire to remain in school, to be diligent in studies, and to profit from the educational experiences provided will be given every opportunity to do so and will be assisted in every way possible to achieve scholastic success to the limit of individual ability.
 
E. Recognizing the privilege of representing one’s school, the Board of Education feels that students who commit the following offenses should lose their privilege to represent their respective school or district for a period of no less than one quarter and not more than one year. This is to be determined by the principal and administrative staff.
1. Providing, possessing, or using dangerous drugs, alcohol, narcotics, or other injurious substances.
2. Habitual truancy
3. Extortion of money, food, etc. from other students
4. Theft
5. Forging passes, attendance slips, or changing the marks on a report card
6. Misbehavior in the educational setting which the principal and his administrative staff may feel brings discredit on the school and district.
 
F. All school personnel have the responsibility to bring knowledge of any infraction of the above to the proper authorities.
 
G. No student, regardless of his social status, race, creed, or color, shall receive preferential treatment in any matter outlined in this policy of discipline.
 
H. At intervals, upon the request of the Board of Education, Superintendent, or the Redlands Teachers Association, meetings will be held to modify, revise, change or update any part of this general policy. CVHS students are expected to maintain academic integrity.
 
Skateboards / Bicycles / Roller Blades / Scooters / Razors
Skateboards / Bicycles / Roller Blades / Scooters / Razors are not allowed to be ridden or seen on campus during the instructional day. State helmet law will be enforced.
 
Cell phones, I-Pods, MP3 players, and Cameras (Education Code 48901.5)
Electronic signaling device; possession or use prohibited; exception
(a) The governing board of each school district, or its designee, may regulate the possession or use of any electronic signaling device that operates through the transmission or receipt of radio waves, including, but not limited to, paging and signaling equipment, by pupils of the school district while the pupils are on campus, while attending school-sponsored activities, or while under the supervision and control of school district employees.
 (b) No pupil shall be prohibited from possessing or using an electronic signaling device that is determined by a licensed physician and surgeon to be essential for the health of the pupil and use of which is limited to purposes related to the health of the pupil.
 
CVHS recommends that students DO NOT bring these items on campus. They have no purpose in an educational setting and make students a target for theft. It is not CVHS’s responsibility to retrieve these items if they are lost or stolen, or investigate the theft of loss of these items on campus. I-Pods, MP3 players, and cell phones may not be used in any classroom during school hours.
Consequences:
  • First offense: Warning, confiscated, student must retrieve in the administration office after school
  • Second offense: Confiscated and parent must retrieve phone in administration office.
  • Third offense: Lunch detention, confiscated, parent retrieval from administration office.
  • Fourth offense: After school detention, confiscated, parent retrieval from administration office.
  • Fifth offense: Suspension, confiscated, parent retrieval from administration office.

Academic Integrity
In an effort to encourage students to establish lifelong skills of honesty and integrity, it is the policy at Citrus Valley High School to promote academic integrity. Any kind of work submitted as your own that you did not produce in its entirety is academic dishonesty.  Assisting others in academic dishonesty makes a student equally responsible. Examples include:
  • Homework (copying from another student)
  • Getting/Giving answers to test taken earlier
  • Copying from Internet without quoting as a source or paraphrasing
  • Copying or sharing answers between students on a quiz or test
  • Crediting source material that was not used for research
  • Allowing another student to copy from you
  • Plagiarizing from the Internet, written text or other source
  • Sharing work via Email
Consequences:
  • First offense – zero on assignment – logged into Aeries – call to parent by teacher.
  • Second offense – zero on assignment – logged into Aeries – class suspension
  • Third offense – subsequent offense(s) will result in disciplinary action deemed by administrator

CVHS Dress Code
The Board of Education has determined that a student may not remain at school dressed in a manner which (1) creates a safety hazard for said student or for other students at school, and/or (2) when the dress constitutes a serious and unnecessary distraction to the learning process or tends to disrupt campus order.
 
When the site administrator/designee determines that a student’s attire is in violation of this policy, the student will be required to modify his/her clothing and/or apparel in such a manner that it no longer violates this policy. If necessary, the student may be taken or sent home with parental permission to modify unacceptable dress and return to school. Refusal to take steps as described in this policy shall be cause for disciplinary action against the student.
 
1. Shoes must be worn at all times. A substantial sole is required and enclosed toes and heel footwear are highly encouraged. Platform shoes (over 3 inches), and slippers are not permitted.
 
2. Extremely brief garments that are distracting to the educational environment are not acceptable. For young ladies, those garments would include: halter tops, tube tops, pajama tops and/or bottoms, muscle shirts, sleeveless undershirts worn as an outside garment, strapless apparel, any clothing that reveals underwear, spaghetti straps or any shirt that is less than 1 inch in width, off the shoulder apparel, see-through garments, low-cut garments, bare midriff garments (A jacket or cover-up to conceal brief clothing that reveals bras or bare midriffs is not acceptable).  For young men, those garments would include: pajama tops and/or bottoms, muscle shirts, saggy pants and baggy pants (definitions of saggy and baggy pants are at bottom of this page).
 
3. Extremely short skirts and shorts are not permitted.
 
4. Garments with violent, suggestive or obscene statements will not be allowed. Garments or accessories with slogans or pictures depicting or promoting drugs, alcohol, tobacco, nudity or controlled substances are not appropriate. Clothing which causes hatred or unrest between students is not allowed.
 
5. Earrings, jewelry or accessories, which present a safety hazard to the wearer or others are not suitable for school wear. Spiked or studded jewelry of any kind, including bracelets, chokers, rings, gloves, and belts are not acceptable.
 
6. Only prescription sunglasses may be worn in classrooms or offices. Other types of sunglasses may be worn on campus outside of class.
 
7. Identified gang attire such as bandannas, hair nets, towels, beanies or hair rollers or any gang paraphernalia is prohibited. Those items of attire include: Bib overalls with straps unbuckled, oversized, sagged or baggy pants, lettered or numbered belt buckles, apparel with emblems, printing, etc. that create animosity, suspenders that are not worn properly on the shoulders, clothing worn in such a manner that would conceal any weapon, beeper/cell phone, or contraband that could be carried on the person.
 
8. Except for hats approved for sun protection, NO head wear will be permitted to be worn on any secondary school campus. School caps/hats or head wear that is part of a uniform worn for athletic events may be worn on the field or area of play but may NOT be worn on campus when the event is not in progress. Head wear guidelines shall apply equally to male and female students. Hats approved for sun protection must follow these guidelines:
 
• The hat must be white, tan or khaki colored.
• The hat must be foldable, allowing it to be folded and placed in a student’s pocket or backpack while the student is indoors.
• The hat must have a full circumference brim, which measures 2” to 5” in width. While the hat is being worn, the brim cannot be molded or folded in any way.
• No manufacturer or team logos shall be present on the outside of the hat, including the underside of the brim.
• For identification purposes, a student’s name may be inscribed inside the hat lining. No other markings are allowed on any part of the hat.
• The administration is responsible for determining the appropriateness of a hat and whether the hat meets District criteria and provides substantive protection from the sun.
 
The intent of this policy is clearly to prevent the display of unauthorized head wear on campus; thus “worn” is interpreted in the broadest sense. Any student who displays any unauthorized head wear either by wearing it on the head or in a manner that the head wear is visible will be deemed as in violation of this policy.
 
9. METAL REINFORCED footwear such as Doc Martin boots, chains of any form such as wallet safeguards or chokers, safety pins worn on the outside of clothing and excessively long belts (sized belts must be worn on the belt loops) violate the intent of the gang attire policy provisions and are subject to dress code violation penalties.
 
Definitions
Baggy pants: the waistline of the pants, located at the hip bone of the student, when pulled and pinched will not have an excess of cloth material greater than one inch or one size larger than actual size.
 
Sagged pants: the waistline of the pants is to be located at the hip bone of the student. With the pants correctly worn, the crotch of the pants will not hang below the torso. The length of the “hemmed” pants will be no longer than the heel of the shoe. Properly fitted pants incorrectly worn (below the hip bone) are sagged pants.
 
FOR THE SAFETY OF ALL CVHS STUDENTS AND STAFF, THE ADMINISTRATION RESERVES THE RIGHT TO BAN ANY CLOTHING STYLE THAT INDICATES GANG AFFILIATION, VIOLENCE OR DRUG USE OR ANY CLOTHING STYLE THAT DISTRACTS FROM THE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT. THE ADMINISTRATION ALSO RESERVES THE RIGHT TO DO RANDOM DRESS CODE CHECKS AS NECESSARY FOR THE SAFETY OF ALL STUDENTS.
Consequences:
  • First offense: Warning; loaner clothes will be provided for the remainder of the school day. If the dress code item is an accessory (example: hat, beanie, etc.) the item will be held in the office and returned at the end of the school day.
  • Second offense: Loaner clothes will be provided for the remainder of the school day, lunch detention issued. If the dress code item is an accessory (example: hat, beanie, etc.) the item must be picked up by student’s guardian.
  • Third offense: Loaner clothes will be provided for the remainder of the school day, lunch detention issued. If the dress code item is an accessory (example: hat, beanie, etc.) the item must be picked up by student’s guardian.
  • Fourth offense: Loaner clothes will be provided for the remainder of the school day, after school detention issued. If the dress code item is an accessory (example: hat, beanie, etc.) the item must be picked up by student’s guardian.
  • Fifth offense: Loaner clothes will be provided for the remainder of the school day, may result in suspension. If the dress code item is an accessory (example: hat, beanie, etc.) the item must be picked up by student’s guardian.
 Attendance/Tardy Policy for CVHS
 
Students are considered tardy if not completely inside the assigned room when the bell rings. Individual teachers may require a more strict definition (i.e., students must be in seat when the bell rings).
 
Lock Out – CVHS has a detention room where locked-out tardy students will go. Teachers may lock students out of their rooms AFTER the tardy bell has rung. Security and other personnel will escort those students to detention. The detention room is NOT for teachers to send students with disciplinary issues. Any student with disciplinary issues must be sent to the student’s counselor or administrator.
 
Period 1 Tardies
Students who are tardy within the first 7-minutes following the late bell will be required to report to the attendance window for a pass to class.  The student will be marked as tardy.
  • After the first 7-minutes, parents will need to walk their student to the attendance window to have the student checked-in.  Parents may also send the student with a note. The student then will be given a pass to class and will be marked as tardy.  Students who show late to class without a pass will be sent to detention.
  • Students who are tardy but do not have a parent accompanying them to the attendance window will be escorted to detention as per the lock out policy. The student will be marked as tardy.
 
For Tardies/Detentions in any one period:
 
1st Tardy/Detention - Automated call home
2nd Tardy/Detention - Automated call home
3rd Tardy/Detention - Automated call home; one lunch detention assigned
4th Tardy/Detention - Automated call home; two lunch detentions assigned
5th Tardy/Detention - Automated call home; After School Detention assigned; possible Student Attendance Review Team (SART) or Student Attendance and Review Board referral (SARB)
PLEASE NOTE: Tardies and Detentions count together when assigning the above consequences.  Additionally, for any student who has 10 or more cumulative tardies (i.e., including all periods together), he/she will also be issued an after school detention.
 
Attendance and NO-Classroom Participation Policies of Citrus Valley High School
A student will be marked absent by each teacher at any time he/she is not present in his/her scheduled class.  When a student returns following an absence, the Attendance Office must be notified within 48 hours (not including non-school days) by means of a parent or guardian note or telephone call, stating the reason for the absence. Failure to clear an absence with a legitimate reason within 48 hours will result in a truancy being marked on the student’s attendance record.
 
Class Cuts or Full Day Truancy
 
For each full day truancy and repeat violations, the following consequences may be assigned:
  1. After School Detention
  2. School Attendance Review Team Referral
  3. Suspension
  4. Officer Citation
  5. Referral to School Attendance Review Board
  6. Referral to Alternative Education
THE AUTOMATED CALLER WILL NOTIFY PARENTS OF ALL STUDENTS ARE ABSENT AT LEAST ONE PERIOD DURING THE SCHOOL DAY.
 
Perfect Attendance Awards
 
Students will be considered for semester and year-long Perfect Attendance Awards each school year.  All students receiving perfect attendance for the designated time period, will receive a perfect attendance certificate.
 
To qualify for perfect attendance:
  • Students must be physically present to all periods every day being calculated for perfect attendance 
  • Students must not be absent from any period (including excused absences)
  • Students must not arrive late to any period for any reason (including excused tardies)
Students must not leave early from any period for any reason (including excused early outs)
  • Participating in a school activity (i.e., sports, field trip, club activity, etc.) is the only reason a student may be absent from a period, arrive late to a period, or leave early from a period.

In order to maintain the best learning environment, CVHS will adhere to the following Classroom Interruption Policy:
 
Classrooms will be interrupted only for the following emergencies with the approval of an Assistant Principal or designee: death or serious injury of a family member, household disaster (fire, flood, car accident with injuries), or anything directly affecting the safety of a student.
 
*Messages concerning a change in transportation when received from a parent/guardian will be forwarded to the student’s next class.
 
*Previously unscheduled appointments, which require early dismissal of the student, will be handled through the Attendance Office.
 
Items delivered to the school at the request of the student who has called home will be held at the switchboard. The student will be responsible for checking for the delivered item(s) during passing periods or with an approved pass from a teacher. “Forgotten” items, (i.e. lunch money), which are delivered, will be held at the switchboard. A note will be sent to the student to pick the item up at lunch or the end of the day – no exceptions.  Problems will be directed to an Assistant Principal.
 
All floral and balloon deliveries will be refused. Issues will be directed to an Assistant Principal.

ELECTRONIC INFORMATION RESOURCE ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY
 
The Redlands Unified School District strongly believes in the educational value of electronic services and recognizes the potential of such to support the curriculum and student learning in the district. The goal of the district in providing this service is to promote educational excellence by facilitating resource sharing, innovation, and communication. The Redlands Unified School District will make every effort to protect students from any misuses or abuses as a result of their experiences with an information service. All
users must be continuously on guard to avoid inappropriate and illegal interaction with the information service. Access to the internet will enable students to explore thousands of libraries, databases, and bulletin boards. Families should be warned that some material accessible via the internet may contain items that are illegal, defamatory, inaccurate or potentially offensive to some people. While the intent of the District is to make internet access available to further educational goals and objectives, students may find ways to access other materials as well. It is believed that the benefits to students from access to the internet in the form of information resources and opportunities for collaboration exceed the disadvantages. Ultimately, parents and guardians of minors are responsible for setting and conveying the standards that their children should follow when using media and information sources. To that end, the school and district staff supports and respects each family's right to decide whether or not to apply for access. Students are responsible for good behavior on the school computer network just as they are in a classroom or a school hallway. Communications on the network are often public in nature. General school rules for behavior and communications apply. The school computer network is provided for students to conduct research. Access to network services is given to students who agree to act in a considerate and responsible manner. Parent permission is required. Access is a privilege - not a right. Access entails responsibility. Individual users of the school's computer network are responsible for their behavior and communications over the network. It is presumed that users will comply with school standards and will honor this Acceptable Use Policy. Beyond the clarification of such standards, the school is not responsible for restricting, monitoring, or controlling the communications of individuals utilizing the network. Network storage areas may be treated like school lockers. Network administrators may review files kept on the file servers to maintain system integrity and insure that users are using the system responsibly. Users should not expect that files stored on school district computers will always be private. Within reason, freedom of speech and access to information will be honored. During school, teachers of younger students will guide them toward appropriate materials. Outside of school, families bear the same responsibility for such guidance as they exercise with information sources such as television, telephones, movies, radio and other potentially offensive media. “Electronic information resources” include, but are not limited to, any computer use, any information available via the Internet, any information available via the local area network, accessed using RUSD computers, computer software of any kind including CD-ROM and network resources, and video resources. Please read this document carefully. Listed below are the provisions of this Acceptable Use Policy. If any user violates these provisions, access to information services may be denied and you may be subject to disciplinary action.
 
Terms and Conditions of This Contract
1. Personal Responsibility: As a student in the RUSD, I will accept personal responsibility for using electronic resources in accordance with the acceptable use guidelines outlined below. In addition, I will accept personal responsibility for reporting any misuse of electronic resources to the classroom teacher, computer lab instructor or the school principal. Misuse can come in many forms, but it is commonly defined as any information sent or received that indicates or suggests pornography, unethical or illegal solicitation, racism, sexism, inappropriate language, excessive violence, drug or alcohol use, gang related material, and/or other issues described below. All the rules of conduct described in the District publication entitled "Board Policy 6162.7 - Use of Technology in Instruction" apply when you are using the network to access information services.
 
2. Acceptable Use: The use of any electronic information resource must be in support of education and research and with the educational goals and objectives of the Redlands Unified School District (these may be found in the District document entitled, "Board Policy 6162.7 - Use of Technology in Instruction"). I am personally responsible for this provision at all times when using electronic information services.
a. RUSD provides access to electronic information resources for use in support of education and educational research only.
b. The use of personal electronic mail accounts is NOT acceptable. This includes any and all e-mail access including, but not limited to, web-based mail services such as those provided by Microsoft HotMail, Yahoo Mail, Netscape, and many others. Electronic mail access is only acceptable when the account has been provided by a representative of the RUSD.
c. The use of chat room and instant messaging services is NOT acceptable. Chat access is only acceptable when moderated by a representative of the RUSD.
d. Any personal data stored on external media (including, but not limited to, CD-ROM, DVD, floppy disk, Zip media, Jaz media, or any other optical media) or accessible via the Internet (including personal web pages, FTP accounts, etc.) accessed using RUSD equipment must also meet the standards of acceptable use outlined in this document.
e. The use of RUSD equipment for playing games of any kind, including, but not limited to, games available online or via CDROM and intentionally wasting limited resources is
strictly prohibited with the exception of games that are included as part of an educational software package supplied by the district.
f. The use of RUSD equipment for the purchase and/or ordering of merchandise or services for personal use is not acceptable.
g. Use of other organization's networks or computing resources must comply with rules approved by the District Coordinator of Technology Services. This includes unauthorized use and access of wireless networks and the installation of personally owned network equipment.
h. Transmission of any material in violation of any United States statues and laws or other state organizations laws is prohibited. This includes, but is not limited to copyrighted material, threatening or obscene material, or material protected by trade secret.

n. Student home folders stored on district network file servers may be reviewed by authorized district employees to ensure compliance with the above stated policies.
o. Inappropriate use of electronic information resources can be a violation of local, state and federal laws and the individual can be prosecuted for violating any of those laws and this may result in loss of computer access privileges.
 
3. Privileges: The use of the District information system is a privilege, not a right, and inappropriate use (as defined above) will result in a cancelation of those privileges. The Redlands Unified School District system administrator(s) (operating under the aegis of the Board of Education and the District Office) will decide what appropriate use is and their decision is final. The system administrator may close an account at any time deemed necessary. The administration, staff, or faculty of the Redlands Unified School District may request that the system administrator deny, revoke, or suspend specific user accounts.
 
4. Services: The Redlands Unified School District makes no warranties of any kind, whether expressed or implied, for the service it is providing. The Redlands Unified School District will not be responsible for any damages suffered while using this system. These damages include loss of data as a result of delays, non-deliveries, or service interruptions caused by the system or your errors or omissions. Use of any information obtained via the information system is at your own risk. The Redlands Unified School District specifically disclaims any responsibility for the accuracy of information obtained through its services.
 
5. Security: Security on any computer system is a high priority because there are so many users. If you identify a security problem, notify the classroom teacher, computer lab instructor or the school principal at once. Never demonstrate the problem to other users. Never use another individual's account. All use of the system must be under your own account. Never distribute your password to other users. Any user identified as a security risk will be denied access to the information system. Examples of security risk behavior include attempting to access the account of another user, attempting, in any way, to access data or software that the user has not been given privileges to, attempting to modify the configuration of a computer workstation or server in order to gain access to restricted data or software and distributing your password to others.
 
6. Vandalism: Vandalism is defined as any malicious attempt to harm or destroy data of another user or any other agencies or networks that are connected to the system. This includes, but is not limited to, executing, uploading or creating computer viruses, and any attempt to disrupt network services. Vandalism includes any activity that can be described as "hacking, "cracking," and the like. Vandalism also includes the intentional damage of computer hardware, peripherals, and software media. Any vandalism will result in the loss of computer services, disciplinary action, and legal referral.
 
7. Updating: The information service may occasionally require new user registration and account information from you to continue the service. You must notify the classroom teacher, computer lab instructor or the school principal of any changes in your account information.
 
STUDENT AGREEMENT
I understand and will abide by the provisions and conditions of the RUSD Acceptable Use Policy. I understand that any violations of the above provisions may result in disciplinary action, the revoking of my user account, and appropriate legal action. I also agree to report any misuse of the information system to the Redlands Unified School District system administrator.

All the rules of conduct described in the District publication entitled, "Board Policy 6162.7 Use of Technology in Instruction" apply when I am using the network.
 
PARENT OR GUARDIAN AGREEMENT
As the parent or guardian of this student, I have read the RUSD Acceptable Use Policy and understand that the information system and the network is designed for educational purposes.
