Student Handbook (page 9)....
Stealing is something that will not be tolerated at Calhoun Academy. It is a serious matter that deserves the administration's utmost attention. Any student caught in the theft or "borrowing" without permission any item of the school, school staff or student body will be subject to disciplinary measures as deemed necessary by the administration. This could include expulsion from school. Any theft of items in excess of $500.00 will be reported to the proper authority as well.
|1st offense -|| Corporal punishment or In-School Suspension.|
|2nd offense -|| One (1) day Out-of-School Suspension.|
|3rd offense -|| Three (3) day Out-of-School Suspension.|
| Any other offense will be dealt with by the Board of Directors.|
Insubordination / Disrespect
A student is expected to be respectful at all times. If a person in authority at the school asks a student to do or stop doing something, they must obey immediately. Any student who becomes insubordinate or disrespectful will be dealt with by the administration of the school. The severity of the offense will determine the punishment.
No student will be allowed to disrupt the flow of school due to inappropriate behavior. Any student who becomes a disruption to school will be removed immediately. Parents will be notified and the student will be sent home. The length of time will be determined by the administration and will reflect the offense.
If a student has to be removed from school for disruptive behavior for a second time, a minimum five (5) day out-of-school suspension will be given and the parents and student will be brought before the Board of Directors to discuss possible expulsion.
|A =|| 93 to 100|
|B =||85 to 92|

|F =||Below 70|
Good behavior is considered a desirable quality. Conduct grades will be given each nine-week period.
Progress reports will be issued on the 4½ week intervals. Report cards will be issued at the end of each nine-week period. Both progress reports and report cards are to be signed and returned to school.
Each individual teacher will decide the way he/she will compute the grades within the nine-week span. Teachers will advise the students at the beginning of the year as to how they will compute their grades.
At the conclusion of the 1st and 3rd nine weeks, a nine-weeks test will be given that will make up ¼ of the average for that nine-week period. At the end of the 2nd nine-week period, a mid-term exam will be given. There will be no nine-weeks test for the 2nd nine-week period. The mid-term exam will cover the material from the first two nine weeks. The average from the first two nine-week periods will count as ¾, and the mid-term exam will count as ¼ of the mid-term average. The second semester will be averaged the same way for the 3rd and 4th nine weeks. The final exam will include the material covered in those two nine-week periods and will count as ¼ of the second term grade. The third and fourth nine weeks will make up ¾ of the semester grade. The final average is derived by the first semester average and the second semester average.
All students in grades 4 through 12 will be required to take mid-term exams. Seniors that have a one-semester course can be exempt if they meet the exemption requirements. Any student may be exempt from their final exam if they meet all the requirements mentioned below:
|1.||Have a yearly average of 93 or better. (90 or better for seniors.)|
|2.||Have no unexcused absences. This includes and out-of-school suspensions.|
|3.||Have no more than 10 absences in a year-long course, or 5 in a one-semester course.|
|4.||Have no unsatisfactory marks on conduct.|
|The Calhoun Academy administration reserves the right to review each case.|
