attEndancE
Regular school attendance is a major component of academic success. Any absence from
class is therefore detrimental to the learning process. The attendance policy is intended
to encourage full attendance by students and limit the level of absences, tardiness, and
early departures (ATEDs) from school. Excused ATEDs are defined as absences, tardiness,
and early departures from class or school due to personal illness, death in the immediate
family, approved family emergency, religious observance, required court appearances,
medical appointments, approved college visits, and approved school activities. All other
ATEDs are considered unexcused absences. It is the parent’s responsibility to notify the
school office within 24 hours of the reason for the ATED and to provide a written excuse
upon the student’s return to school. If after three school days the school has not been
notified to the contrary, the absence will be considered unexcused.

A student who has more than twelve (12) absences in a semester course, or twenty-four
(24) absences in a full year course, will receive no credit for that course. Being late to class
three (3) times is the equivalent of one (1) absence. students with too many absences may
appeal the loss of credit to the building principal.

purchase a lock. students have access to their lockers before school, during passing time
between classes and at the end of the school day. students are reminded to secure their
lockers at all times and never to reveal their combinations to anyone. Lockers remain under
the control of the administrators and custodial staff of the building and are subject to

aDDitional inForMation
rEGiStration of StudEntS nEw to thE diStrict
The District requires that students entering our schools submit documentation to validate their
residency in the sewanhaka central high school District. Registration forms and procedures are
available on the District website. The District’s homeless Liaison is ms. Regina Agrusa, Assistant
superintendent for PPs and special Education services (488-9851). This process pertains to all
students who have moved into this school district from other areas, as well as incoming 7th grade
students. Also included are resident students who are transferring from a private or parochial school.
A questionnaire regarding residency is required and responses will be checked against census data,
as well as enrollment records to determine their validity. If it is found that a student is fraudulently
enrolled, he or she will be withdrawn from school and tuition charges may be assessed to the parent
and criminal charges may also be filed.
School codE of conduct
As required by the Regulations of the new york state commissioner of Education, the Board of
Education in consultation with parents, students and professional staff, developed a code for school
conduct and discipline. The plain language summary of the code is distributed to all students and
reviewed at the beginning of each school year. copies of the complete code are available in each school
as well as posted on district website.
intErnEt & inStructional tEchnoloGy uSE Policy
The purpose of establishing student use of the Internet and the sewanhaka network is to provide
students access to information resources for instructional purposes. The District regards this access
as a privilege, not a right. some of the information on the Internet may not be appropriate for student
use. Therefore, it is essential for each user to recognize his/her responsibility in having access to vast
services, sites, systems and people. In addition, users must respect all intellectual and property rights
and laws. The user is ultimately responsible for his/her actions in accessing Internet resources. Failure
to comply with the District’s Internet Guidelines may result in disciplinary or legal action as well as
suspension and/or revocation of access privileges. Parents and students must sign an Internet and
Instructional Technology use Policy consent and Waiver Form prior to student access of the Internet
in school.

Information about the new york state sex Offender Registration Act and public access to the
subdirectory of high Risk sex Offenders is available at www.criminaljustice.state.ny.us. This site also
contains valuable information for parents on protecting your child.
diStrict hoMEwork Policy
The long-standing tradition in education of assigning homework has been given additional support
in recent studies which identify characteristics of effective schools. Research clearly demonstrates
that time spent on homework is positively related to achievement. Through homework, classroom
instruction is reinforced, high expectations are supported, students are motivated toward selfdirection
and the relationship of school and home in the learning process is strengthened. homework is an
important part of every student’s instructional program and is part of the student’s final grade. copies
of this policy are available at each school.
vandaliSM
under a new york state Law passed in l977, parents will have to pay for any vandalism of public
property. students are also subject to suspension for this type of unacceptable behavior.
PESticidE aPPlication
Effective july 1, 2001 all public and non-public elementary and secondary school districts are required

who wish to receive 48 hour written notice of certain pesticide applications. Please advise building
administrators should you wish to receive notice.
viSitorS

valid school business.

workinG PaPErS
Working papers are required by law for students under the age of 18 who seek paid employment. Forms
for this purpose are available in the health Office. They must be signed by a parent, and the student
must have medical clearance. A birth certificate, baptismal certificate or passport is also required as
proof of age.
Equal Educational oPPortunity
Each student will have equal educational opportunities and will not be excluded from participating
in or having access to any course offerings, school services or activities on the basis of race, color,
creed, sex, national origin, religion, age, marital status or disability. Anyone with a complaint
concerning sex discrimination should contact the District’s Title IX compliance Officer, Regina
Agrusa, Assistant to the superintendent for Pupil Personnel and special Education services,
488-9851. complaints concerning discrimination on the basis of disability should be directed
to Regina Agrusa at 488-9851. All other complaints should be made to the Building Principal or
(if appropriate) to the superintendent of schools.
SEction 504
students with disabilities, but not classified by the committee on special Education, are entitled to a
504 committee meeting to determine necessary accommodations to ensure access to all public school
programs and activities. Requests for a 504 committee meeting should be submitted to the building
principal. Parents or community members who believe that they have been subjected to discriminatory
treatment on basis of a disability or that the district schools, programs, or services are not fully
accessible should contact Regina Agrusa, section 504/ADA coordinator (488-9851).
SEnior citizEnS
Free passes to athletic and cultural events in the sewanhaka central high school District are available
to all senior citizens residing within the District. This is just one of many services senior citizens may
learn about by writing to the superintendent of schools, sewanhaka central high school District, 77
Landau Avenue, Floral Park, n.y. 11001. The letter should include the full name, address, date of birth
and telephone number of the person requesting the information.
diStrict criSiS Plan
As part of new york state regulations, the sewanhaka central high school District has developed a
plan which better prepares us for any crisis. Included in this plan are various types of drills, such as
early dismissal (or evacuation). In the case of early dismissal, at least once each year, parents will be
notified in writing that their child will be dismissed approximately fifteen (15) minutes prior to the
regular dismissal time. Pursuant to recent legislation, new york state Project sAVE - safe schools
Against Violence in Education, has been submitted and approved by the Board of Education. This
comprehensive safety plan has been developed in accordance to recommended guidelines. There
is a school building Emergency Response Plan in place and filed with the appropriate education
and emergency departments. copies of these plans are available in each school. If parents have
any questions regarding these plans they should contact the office of the superintendent at 488-9800
ext. 9873.
