As a parent, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers and instructional assistants who instruct your child. Federal law allows you to ask for the following information about your child’s classroom teachers and requires the District to give you this information in a timely manner: whether the teacher is certified to teach the subjects and/or grade levels the teacher is teaching, whether the teacher’s certificate is a waiver or substandard certificate, the teacher’s academic major, graduate degrees, if any, and the teacher’s certification area. If you would like to receive this information, please contact Human Resources at 641-2464.










Dear Students and Parents,
 
                At North Augusta High School, we pride ourselves on providing the foundation students need to achieve their goals and recognize their potential. The 2014-2015 school year marks the pinnacle of a philosophy that has evolved over the last three years, a philosophy designed to encourage increased student opportunity and achievement.
 
                Our motto for the 2014-2015 school year is “I believe; together as one; endless possibilities.” This is a belief system that has grown within our students, faculty, and community over the last three years. Through the hard work of our students, teachers, and staff, North Augusta High School has been named a Palmetto Gold Award Winner for the past two years and received an overall rating of Excellent on our SC State Report Card. By providing the opportunities for personal excellence for each of students, North Augusta High School believes every student can achieve “endless possibilities.”   
 
                So whether it is your first year of high school or you are preparing to receive your senior robes, the skills and knowledge that you received will be the key to the doorway of your future. The value of education lies in the possibility that grows within each and every student, the possibility to realize your dreams, the possibility to change the world in which you live, the possibility to contribute in a meaningful way. TOGETHER we have BELIEVED; and TOGETHER we will achieve ENDLESS POSSIBLITIES.  
 
Sincerely,
 
John Murphy
 
Principal, North Augusta High School

Alma Mater
 
In the hills of Carolina
Stands my Alma Mater fair
My beloved North Augusta
With whom no other can compare.
*Twas there that teachers lent their aid
To guide my climbing steps,
And taught me how to drink the cup
Of knowledge to its depths.
(*Repeat)
 
Chorus
Thy praise I sing to North Augusta!
My love abides with thee.
You have my heart’s devotion,
And forever, my loyalty,
Thy praise I sing, North Augusta.
My love abides with thee.
Soon the parting time will come.
We must each go a different way.
While in your walls you gave to me
A gift I shall keep for aye.
*My heart is bound by memory’s chain
Within each room and hall
Of my noble Alma Mater—
The fairest school of all.
(*Repeat)
 
North Augusta High School
Fight Song
 
Oh. we’re the N.A. Yellow Jackets
black and gold forever more.
Yes, we’re the N. A. Yellow Jackets
with the power that will score. RAH, RAH, RAH!
Got a sting that’s strong enough
to frighten any foe.
Yes we’ve got the power
And the get up and go.
Oh, we’re the N.A. Yellow Jackets
black and gold forever more.

High School Assessment Program
All students are required to earn a minimum score of 200 on both sub-tests of the South Carolina High School Assessment Program (HSAP) to obtain a State High School Diploma. The sub-tests are in English (reading and writing) and mathematics. Students will have as many as four opportunities to pass all the sub-tests. Students who score below standard on any of the sub-tests are required to participate in a remediation class.
 
Additional Graduation Information
Students who have been enrolled in special needs programs may receive a district certificate after 12 years of school or an Aiken County Employability Skills (ACES) diploma.
A student may participate in graduation exercises only once.
 
Course Load for Students
Seniors must be enrolled in a minimum of 4 courses per semester. Seniors are allowed early dismissal if the schedule permits. Underclassmen (grades 9-11) are required to be enrolled in a minimum of 6 courses per semester. Early dismissal is not allowed for underclassmen.
Note: All students are strongly encouraged to take rigorous coursework to prepare for post-high school success.
 
College Preparatory Course Prerequisite Requirements
 
Four (4) Units of English: At least two units must have strong grammar and composition components, one must be in English literature, and one must be in American literature. Completion of College Preparatory English 1, 2, 3, and 4 will meet this criterion.
 
Four (4) Units of Mathematics: These include Algebra 1, Algebra 2, and Geometry. A fourth higher-level mathematics course is strongly recommended. The fourth course should be selected from among pre-calculus, calculus or statistics.
 
Three (3) Units of Laboratory Science: Two units must be taken in two different fields of the physical or life sciences and selected from among biology, chemistry, or physics. A third unit may be from the same field as one of the first two units (biology, chemistry, physics) or from any laboratory science for which biology and/or chemistry is a prerequisite. Courses in earth science, general physical science, or general environmental science for which biology and/or chemistry is not a prerequisite will not meet this requirement. Students desiring careers in science, mathematics, engineering, or technology are strongly recommended to take one course in all three fields. 
 
Two (2) Units of the Same Foreign Language: Some colleges require three units.
 
Three (3) Units of Social Science: One unit of US History is required; a half unit of Economics and a half unit in Government are also required.
 
One (1) Unit of Fine Arts: One unit in Appreciation of, History of, or Performance in fine arts.
 
Elective: One unit must be taken. A college preparatory course in Computer Science (i.e., one involving significant programming content, not simply keyboarding) is strongly recommended for this elective. Other acceptable electives include college preparatory courses in English; fine arts; foreign languages; social science; humanities; laboratory science (excluding earth science, general physical science, general environmental science, or other introductory science courses for which biology and/or chemistry is not a prerequisite); or mathematics above the level of Algebra 2.
 
One (1) Unit of Physical Education or ROTC
 
Note: These requirements are defined by the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education for entry into South Carolina colleges and universities. Each institutions may make exceptions in admitting (a) students who do not meet all of the prerequisites, limited to individual cases in which the failure to meet one or more prerequisites is due to circumstances beyond the reasonable control of the student. Please visit the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education website at www.che.sc.gov for more information.

Early Graduation
 
Any student who plans to graduate from the eleventh grade and participate in the graduation exercises at the end of the school year must sign an early graduation intent form prior to the beginning of their third year. The failure to turn in this form to the guidance office will prevent the student from participating in the graduation exercises, but will not prevent him/her from receiving a diploma if all requirements have been met. 
 
A student graduating from the junior class will be:
- Eligible to graduate with honors
- Eligible to order a class ring, cap and gown, invitations, and participate in graduation
- included in practice sessions for graduation
- placed with the junior class in the annual. 
 
Students graduating from the junior class will not be eligible:
- For senior privileges
- To attend senior class meetings
- Homeroom reassignment (after first semester)
 
                                Course Selection
 
The first step you will make toward a successful high school journey is selecting courses that fit into those future plans. Your high school course selection will be in the spring semester and is developed in partnership with you, your parents, and your counselor and specifies your Career Cluster. Again, the courses you select should be based on your educational and career plans after high school.
 
You are strongly encouraged to take the most rigorous courses possible in order to create a transcript that provides multiple options after high school graduation. We strongly encourage all college preparatory students to take advanced placement (AP) courses. While these courses are demanding and require more in-depth study, college-bound students will gain substantial benefits in their college courses. Strong study habits are developed which pay dividends later in college. You should also consider standardized test scores, grades and your teachers’ recommendations when selecting courses. 
 
 
Course Change Policy
 
Because the student master schedule created based on the Spring requests of over 1600 students, even minor changes create major obstacles to a schedule that meets the needs of all students. For this reason, course changes will be made only for the following reasons:
1)       Conflicts that occur as a result of school logistical problems with the schedule.
2)       Coding errors made by data entry that result in courses not requested in the Spring being on the student’s schedule.
3)       If, at the time of the first interim, a student is struggling in a course with lower levels with space available, administration will consider the possibility of a level change. For consideration, the parent must have had a conference with the teacher where the teacher indicates that the student participates in class, does all assignments, and is at that point over their head. 
4)       If a student completes summer school in the course area.
 
Notes: 1) Requests for schedule changes due to changing your mind will not be accepted, 2) All courses will be subject to cancellation due to low enrollment or other scheduling constraints

Calculation of the grade point ratio (GPR) and class ranking procedure
 
The state-mandated uniform grading scale and method for calculating GPR and determining class rank will apply to all courses taken by a student carrying Carnegie units, including units earned at the middle school level. The student with the highest ranking and the student with the second highest ranking will be named valedictorian and salutatorian, respectively. Computations of GPR will not be rounded to a higher number. The number will consist of a whole number and two numbers to the right of the decimal point. All diploma candidates in the class are included in the ranking. Class ranking and valedictorian and salutatorian will be calculated at the end of the eighth semester of enrollment.

With the first day of enrollment as the baseline, students who withdraw from a course within five days in a semester course or ten days in a yearlong course will do so without penalty. Students who unilaterally withdraw from a course after these time limitations will be assigned a course grade of “WF” (Withdrawn Failing) and the “F” (numerical grade of 61 and 0 quality points) will be calculated in the student’s overall grade point ratio. Level changes will be considered no later than three days after the first interim report for a semester class and no later than three days after the end of the first quarter for year-long courses for students with inadequate performance. (Inadequate performance is defined as less than a numerical grade of 77.) The “WF” penalty for course withdrawals in excess of the time limitations will not apply to course or level changes initiated by administration.
 
Credit Recovery/Online Courses
 
In an effort to encourage students to remain on grade level, students who fail a course with a minimum grade of 61 are permitted to participate in credit recovery classes (including online courses). Upon successful completion of a credit recovery course, a final grade of 70 will be recorded in lieu of the actual grade. Coursework must be taken from an accredited institution and approved by the student’s guidance counselor before beginning a course. Coursework must also be completed in an acceptable amount of time.
 
A student may also register for and participate in online courses from the South Carolina virtual school https://scvspconnect.ed.sc.gov or any other accredited online program. Again, coursework must be approved by the student’s guidance counselor before beginning a course. Contact the guidance office for more information regarding these programs
 
A maximum of three (3) credit recovery/online courses may be taken per year and a maximum of twelve (12) credit recovery/online courses may be taken during high school.
 
Retaking courses
 
Students may retake the same course at the same level under the following conditions:
1. Only courses in which a D or an F was earned may be retaken within the next school year;
2. A passed course may only be retaken once at the same level;
3. If a course is in a sequential manner, the re-taken course must be in the proper sequence.
 
The student’s record will reflect all courses taken and the grade earned, with the exception that students taking courses for a Carnegie unit prior to the ninth grade year may retake any such course during the ninth grade year. In this case, only the ninth grade retake grade will be used in figuring the GPR and only the ninth grade attempt will show on the transcript.
 
Grading System (District Policy IHA)
 
Student performance will be evaluated based on state standards, academic plans, IEP’s, textbooks and teacher-made assessments, and other available methods. Student conduct will be excluded from consideration in determining a student’s grade.

GIFTED AND TALENTED PROGRAM IN AIKEN COUNTY PUBLIC SCHOOLS
 
                The Aiken County Public Schools serve identified gifted and talented students according to State Regulation R-43-220 and the policies of the local School Board. Gifted and Talented students are those identified in grades 3-12 as demonstrating high performance ability or potential in academic or artistic areas.   The Gifted and Talented Educational Program (G/T) serves academically gifted students in grades 3-12 throughout the school year. Gateway serves artistically gifted students in grades 3-12 in a summer program. 
Academically gifted students qualify for the Gifted and Talented Educational Program if they meet the criteria set forth in the state regulations. Identification may be appealed to the District Evaluation/Placement Team. Private testing may be used only for referral purposes according to state regulations, but not for identification. Parents, teachers and students may make student referrals to the program through the school’s G/T teacher or the school’s guidance counselor at any time during the school year. To be identified, students must meet two of the following dimensions:
               
Dimension A: Reasoning Abilities. Students must demonstrate high aptitude (93rd national age percentile or above) in one or more of these areas: verbal/linguistic, quantitative/mathematical, non-verbal, and/or composite of the three. All students are tested in grade 2 using the CogAT test to measure aptitude in the fall. Students at or above the 96th national age percentile on the composite score receive automatic G/T placement.
               
Dimension B: High Achievement in Reading and/or Mathematical Areas. Students must demonstrate high achievement (94th national percentile and above or advanced status) in reading and/or math as measured by a nationally normed test, fall MAP testing or South Carolina statewide assessment instruments (PASS Qualifying scores determined each year). All second grade students are tested during fall testing using the Iowa Test of Basic Skills. Students in grades 3-8 are PASS tested yearly in the spring. 
               
Dimension C: Intellectual/Academic Performance. Students must demonstrate a high degree of interest in and commitment to academic and/or intellectual pursuits. Students entering grades 7-12 meet this dimension if they demonstrate a 3.75 grade point average on a 4.0 scale in language arts, math, science, social studies and foreign language. Students entering grades 3-6 demonstrate this dimension through a performance task assessment administered to students meeting one of the two Dimensions (A or B) as given above. This performance assessment (STAR) is given in the spring of each year district-wide.
               
Instruction in Gifted and Talented Educational Program classes exceeds the state standards for each grade level. The resource room model is used in grades 3-7 and the subject-based model is used in grades 8-12.
                Artistically gifted students must apply for the Gateway program during the school year and complete the interview and audition process in the spring. The summer program serves newly qualified and previously qualified students. Complete information is on the District website.
               
The Aiken County Public School District does not discriminate on the basis of ethnic or racial background, religious beliefs, sex, disability, economic or social conditions, alienage, national origin, immigrant status (except as limited or restricted by certain visa qualifications set forth in federal law) or by English-speaking status in, or employment in, its programs and activities. Inquiries regarding the nondiscrimination policies should be made to the Associate Superintendent for Administration (641-2609).
                For more information on the Gifted and Talented Educational Program, contact your school principal or Mary McGuire (641-2651).

SECTION II – ATTENDANCE
 
Attendance is a key factor in student achievement. Any absence from school represents an educational loss to the student. We recognize some absences are unavoidable. However, once a student accrues 5 absences (lawful or unlawful) in a semester class or 10 absences (lawful or unlawful) in a year long-class, the student risks losing academic credit. 
 
Attendance Requirements
·          Attendance is recorded on a class-by-class basis. 
·          student must attend a semester class (½ credit) 85 days to receive credit.
·          A student must attend a year-long class (1 credit) 170 days to receive credit.
·          All absences (lawful or unlawful) are charged against the maximum allowed.
·          Lawful absences include:
*Medical absences certified by a physician or other certified health provider.
*Required court appearance certified by a statement from an officer of the court.
* Death in the family (certification may be required).
* Recognized religious holidays.
 * Emergencies approved by the principal.
·          Unlawful absences are defined as a student’s absence from school without an approved reason.  (Personal business/family business is considered unlawful.)
 
Excuses
An absence from school requires a note from a parent/legal guardian or physician on the day the student returns to school after an absence
 
** In all cases, excuses for school absences must be presented to the attendance office before school (8:00 AM – 8:20 AM) on the day the student returns to school. 
 
An absence note from a parent or guardian should contain the following information:
a. Student's full name and grade level    
b. Date of absence and reason
c. Parent/guardian signature and phone #.
d. An attached doctor's statement (if applicable)
Excuses will only be accepted within five (5) days of absence (District Policy JBD). The failure to turn in an excuse within the five-day period will result in the absence being recorded as an unlawful absence regardless of the reason.
 
Sign-in Procedures
Students who are late to school must sign in at the Attendance Office.
 
Tardy  to class regulations
Promptness is expected; tardiness to class is simply unacceptable.  Tardiness is defined as the arrival of a student in the classroom beyond the scheduled time that the class or homeroom is to begin.  This includes first period!  Students who are tardy interrupt instruction, distract other students, and miss instruction time.  Tardiness is both an attendance and a discipline problem.  The following consequences will apply to student tardiness:
 
1st – 2nd offense:               Warning
3rd – 5th offense:                 lunch detention
6th – 7th offense                   2 day In-School Suspension
8 or more                            Expulsion Recommendation
 
*No exception to serving detention will be made.
*Failure to serve detention will result in the student being suspended.
*An intervention may be used to prevent students from reaching expulsion level rapidly (at the discretion of the administrator). 
*No tardy passes will be given after the first 10 minutes of each class with the exception of 1st period.
A tardy may be excused under the following conditions:
 · bus issue.
 ·medical condition verified by a physician or certified healthcare provider.
· required court appearance.
 
Sign-out Procedures
  • Students who leave campus before the end of the school day are required to sign out in the Attendance Office. The only exceptions are for permanent early dismissal students and for students on a school field trip. 
  • It is preferred that a student is signed out by his/her parent. However, a signed note from the parent may be submitted to the attendance office the morning the student will be signing out of school. Parental phone numbers must be included for verification.
  • Students are not permitted to leave campus for personal errands.
  • If older sibling is a student @ NAHS, and is on the registration card to sign out younger student, they can only sign them out if there is a note from the parent, or the student has been seen by the nurse and it is determined that the student should go home.
  • No one can be signed out after 3pm
  • Attendance will not send for a student to wait in the attendance office until the parent arrives to sign them out.
  • Attendance will not sign a student out without a note, e-mail, or fax from the parent first thing in the morning so it can be verified with parent.
  • Attendance will not get a student out of class during instructional time for parent to give them something. We will give it to the student between classes.
  • If a student arrives after first period has started on matter what time of the school day they must come through the attendance office and sign in. They will not be given an admit slip the next day for the teachers of the classes they missed if they didn’t sign in.
  • Students will not be permitted to sign out during exams or standardized testing blocks. These are disruptions to other test takers during critical testing times.
 
Early Dismissal
  • Students approved for early dismissal must leave campus immediately upon dismissal and not return to campus without permission from school administration.
  • Early dismissal privileges can be revoked for academic or disciplinary reasons
 
 
Intervention
 An automated telephone call is made when a student misses at least one class on a school day. When a student is unlawfully absent for three consecutive days, the school will attempt to establish contact with the parent/guardian to arrange a conference. During the conference, a plan will be developed to insure that the parent/guardian, student, and the school have an understanding regarding the future attendance of the student.
 
Make-up work
When a student is absent from school or class for any reason, it is his/her responsibility to make up all work. Assignments are posted and can be accessed via the Internet on any computer. Students will have one day per each excused absence to make up missed work. Exception will be made on a case-by case basis with students who miss an extended period for medical reasons.
 
 
 
 
 
SECTION III - STUDENT CONDUCT
 
Authority of Staff
School administration, teachers, and staff members are vested with legal authority, given to them by the state and local school board. Students and the parent/guardian are expected to be familiar with the Aiken County Public Schools Code of Student Conduct which is provided to all students. 
 
Behavioral Code of Conduct

1) Be in the right place, at the right time, doing the right thing!
2) Treat others as you would like to be treated! (With respect and dignity)

3.   Appropriate use and care of the buildings and facilities of the school.
4.   Cooperation with the school staff to meet the varied educational needs of all students.
 
 
 
Consequences
Failure to meet the school's behavioral expectations will result in specific consequences for infractions. Consequences may include:
 
1.  Warning: In some instances a warningmay be issued -- however, a student is responsible for knowing and following school policies and procedures.
 
2. Conference: Parents of students may be required to come to the school for a conference at a time convenient to the parent, teacher, and administrator.

5.     Out-Of-School Suspension: Out-of-School Suspension is a severe consequence and may be one to ten days. A conference between the administration and the parents is required prior to the student's return.
 
6.     Expulsion: A recommendation for permanent removal from the school for the remainder of the year. Recommendations are made for expulsion offenses listed in the Code of Student Conduct and/or for repeated suspensions (ISS or OSS). Generally, four suspensions or a minimum of ten suspension days will result in a recommendation for expulsion.

Sexual harassment may be generally defined as unwelcome sexual advances, request for sexual favors, and written, spoken or physical conduct of a sexual nature. Students who believe they may have been subjected to sexual harassment are encouraged to report the matter immediately to school officials.
 
SECTION IV - TRANSPORTATION
 
Student Parking Permits
A parking permit is required and must be displayed on all vehicles parked on school grounds. Parking procedures and fees are explained on the information sheet accompanying the permit. A permit cannot be resold or transferred to another student. Please visit the main office to obtain student parking information.
 
Parking Regulations
The parking permit gives the student the privilege to park in the student parking area of North Augusta High School. Abuse of the privilege will result in loss of this privilege. Vehicles must be parked only in the areas designated for student parking. Vehicles illegally parked will be towed at the owner's expense.
 
The North Augusta High School parking lots are governed by North Augusta Department of Public Safety. North Augusta High School assumes no responsibility for articles removed from a vehicle or any damage done to a vehicle while on school premises.
 
There is to be no loitering in vehicles or in the parking areas. Students are to leave their vehicles and the parking areas as soon as they arrive, and are not to return to them until the school day has ended. Special permission from the office is required for a student to return to the parking area during the school day. All vehicles parked on the school campus are subject to being searched at the discretion of the administration.
 
Students must observe the following regulations:
1. Speed limit - 10 mph
2. Park in designated spaces within white lines
3. Wear seatbelts
4. Give the right-of-way to school buses at all times on school grounds
5. Keep parking areas clean and free of debris
 
Note: Students with excessive tardies (5 per semester) will have parking privileges suspended.
Dropping Off and Picking Up Students
To insure the safety of all our students, please follow these procedures when dropping-off and picking-up your student at North Augusta High:
Use the designated circular drives –around the flagpole in front of the main building or the areabetween the auditorium and the gymnasium, nearer the stadium. These areas were designed with our students' safety in mind.
Do not enter and use the teachers' parking area (beyond the flag pole driveway in front of the cafeteria).
Be alert to other cars and students any time you are driving on campus--please follow the speed limit of 10 mph.
Bus Transportation
Students who ride the bus are under the supervision of the bus driver and are subject to the transportation regulations from the time they step on the bus until the school bus route is completed or until they arrive at their appropriate or normal destination. Students are to remain seated and display conduct that will not divert the attention of the driver. Failure to cooperate with the driver or the school bus patrol may give cause for temporary or permanent suspension from riding the bus. Some of the buses are equipped with video cameras. Inappropriate behavior will be dealt with according to the following regulations:
 
General Regulations Concerning Misconduct:
First Offense - Warning issued to student and parents advising them of misconduct, unless the offense is of a nature which school officials warrants a bus suspension.
 
Second Offense – The student will be suspended from riding the bus for a minimum period of five (5) school days, depending upon the nature of the offense and a letter to parents. If a student has already been suspended for one week, the suspension will be for two weeks.
 
Third Offense – The student will be suspended from riding the bus for a minimum period of ten (10) school days. A conference between parent, assistant principal, bus supervisor, driver, and student may be required before bus privileges are restored.
 
Fourth Offense – The student will then be suspended from riding a school bus for the remainder of the current school year in progress. In such case, all circumstances will be thoroughly reviewed by school officials before the action is taken. Once the action is taken, it may be appealed only to the Advisory Council and the Board of Education.
**Important Note**
School buses are an extension of the school. All bus infractions and consequences will be recorded in the student's discipline file at school and will be considered by the administration in the future decisions related to the student's discipline. Fighting on the school bus is considered a serious violation as it places students’ lives in danger. Fighting will result in school suspension and possible arrest by the local authorities. 
 
The bus parking lot is located behind the cafeteria and is off-limits to all students during the school day. Bus concerns should be referred to the bus supervisor in the bus office. The bus office is located on the campus of North Augusta Middle School (803-442-6106).
 
Bus transportation is a privilege; not a right!

Due to the proliferation of cell phones, the frequency of disciplinary infractions related to both the inadvertent and the intentional violations of the Code of Conduct rules, and with the increasing sophistication of these devices leading to the increasingly serious nature of some offenses (such as cheating, violations of privacy with unauthorized photographs, and similar issues), the Aiken County Board has placed much greater restrictions on the possession of phones at school and more serious consequences for the violations of these restrictions.
 
The changes may be summarized as follows:
a) Absolutely no “personal possession” of a cell phone during school hours
b) Phones must be left in vehicles or stored in a student’s locker during school (8:30 – 3:30).
c)  Phones must be turned off during school hours (8:30-3:30).
 
Per Aiken County School Board policy, consequences are:
 
1st offense - In-school suspension (1 day)
2nd offense - In-school suspension (3 days) 
3rd offense - Out of School Suspension
4th offense-Expulsion recommendation
 
Exams
School district policy states that cumulative semester examinations for semester and yearlong courses shall be administered for all courses. All students shall be required to take the examinations except for seniors who may exempt the end of the year examinations if they earn a grade of "A" in the course. The final grade for a two-semester course will be determined by an average of both semesters' grades. Nine-week exams will be given at the end of the first and third nine-weeks. Exams are extremely important and students are required to be in attendance on the scheduled date of exams. 
 
NAHS Exam Policy
Due to an absentee problem noted in the mid-term exam block, the following will be adhered to for exams at North Augusta High School without exception:
·          Students who know in advance that they will be out for exams must get advance administrative approval. The request must be in writing and signed by the parent. The request must be made at least 30 school days prior to the exam.
·          Aside from prior-approved absences, the only absences that will result in approval for making up the exam will be those accompanied by a doctor’s excuse or death in the immediate family (i.e. brother, sister, mother, father).
·          Parents may not sign students out during the exam block. It is a disruption to others when students are being signed out during exams, so the student will be released only at the conclusion of the exam blocks.
Please understand that this policy reflects Aiken County School Policy and reflects the importance of exams that count 20 percent of the student’s semester grade in any course. 
 
 
Fire, earthquake, tornado and safety drills
Safety drills at North Augusta High School are serious matters and conducted to prepare students, faculty, and staff for emergency situations. Look for posted fire drill and tornado drill cards and read the instructions. When the signal for a fire drill is given, proceed quickly and quietly in the direction shown by the fire drill card or as instructed by school personnel.  Go single file down the hall, proceed outside the building to the location directed by your teacher, and do not talk. Stay with your class so that roll can be taken. Remain outside until the signal is given for you to return to your class.
 
When a tornado drill is initiated, assume a duck-and-cover position on an interior wall away from glass and machinery. Remain in this position until given instructions by your teacher/administrator to end the drill.
 
Earthquake drills require that you duck and cover and then evacuate the building. 
 
Flowers, gifts, balloons, etc.
Flowers, balloons, etc. will NOT be accepted by the school for students, nor may students have these items in their possession during school or on buses.
 
Food Deliveries
Food deliveries may NOT be made to students during the school day.
 
Guidance Services
Guidance services are available for every student in the school. These services include assistance with educational planning; interpretation of test scores; career information; study help; help with home, school, and/or social concerns; or any questions the students may feel they would like to discuss with their counselor. Appointments should be made in advance, if possible, at 442-6103.
 
 
 
Hall Passes
Passes are provided in the student’s agenda and must be signed, dated, and timed by a member of the school staff to whom the student is assigned. No student may leave a classroom without a signed agenda.
 
Identification Badges
All students are required to wear school issued identification badges (ID’s) while attending school, on school field trips, etc. The following policies are used to regulate this requirement:
1. ID’s must be visible, worn chest high, and on a breakaway lanyard.
3. ID’s may not be damaged, written on, or changed in any manner on either side.
4. Replacement ID's are available at a cost $5.00
5. Temporary ID’s are available at a cost of $1.00 before school and $2.00 after school begins.
6. The purchase of a temporary ID after class begins will result in a tardy and a detention.
7. The continued failure to wear an ID can result in suspension/expulsion.
Insurance
School insurance for students is sold during the first two weeks of school. The school insurance is presented through Standard Life Insurance Company of Rock Hill, S.C., and is available as a 24-hour Protection Plan or the less expensive School Day Plan.
 
Student-athletes must provide evidence of being properly covered under their own insurance programs or purchase the school insurance.
 
The school acts as a medium in supplying the insurance and assumes no liability for negotiations with the company. Other than those exceptions mentioned above, the student insurance is strictly optional. Claim forms are available in the main office.
 
Elizabeth Godfrey Media Center
The Elizabeth Godfrey Media Center is a place for reading and study. Students are encouraged to use the media center for their school assignments as well as for their own reading enjoyment. Every effort will be made to have materials students want and need for their assignments and leisure reading. Passes to the Augusta State University Library are available by request. The Elizabeth Godfrey Media Center is open between the hours of 7:45 am - 4:00 pm. 
 
A signed agenda by a teacher is required to go to the media center during class time. This includes the lunch periods.   Students must sign in upon arrival. No pass is required before or after school.
 
ID’s are required to check out Library materials. The regular check out period for books is two weeks and fines are charged at $.10 per school day. Reference, special teacher reserves, and magazines are for overnight check out only. These materials may be checked out at 3:20 p.m. and are due no later than 8:30 a.m. the next morning. Exception: Seniors with Early Dismissal and Late Arrival IDs. Fines for overnight materials are charged at $.10 per hour per school day.
 
According to school district policy, NO disks from outside the media center may be used in any computers without being scanned for viruses by the Library Media Specialists. This is to protect everyone from virus problems. Violations of the District Acceptable Use Policy (see page 48) will terminate a student’s computer privileges on campus. The media center has a coin operated copier available for students. Copies are $.15 each; $.25-$.50 for color printouts.
 
Lockers
Each student is assigned a locker. The lockers are property of North Augusta High School and the responsibility of the student. Lockers should be kept neat, clean, and locked at all times. No writing is allowed on the inside or the outside of the lockers. Lockers and book bags are subject to search at any time at the discretion of the administration. 
 
Each locker has a combination lock. No other lock is allowed. Students are not permitted to share lockers. Locker problems should be directed to the school administration.
 
Lost and Found
Inquiries concerning lost articles should be directed to the Attendance Office.   ID’s found by students or teachers should be turned in to the Media Center.

Educational Records – Confidentiality
(Certain Exceptions)
 
Under federal law parents and students have a right to expect the confidentiality of student records. Educational agencies may act to declare certain aspects of a student’s educational records to be “directory information,” meaning information contained in such records which is not considered to be generally harmful or an invasion of privacy if disclosed. The Aiken County Board of Education has previously determined that “directory information” could be released to third parties upon request, at the discretion of the school principal. Federal law and regulatory authority allows the release of such information without prior consent subject to certain conditions of pre-disclosure to parents or students. The purpose of this notice is to meet such pre-disclosure requirements.
 
Under District policy the following information is considered to be releasable: The student’s name, address, telephone number, date and place of birth, subjects of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, weight and height of members of athletic teams, date of attendance (on both an annual and daily basis), diplomas and awards received, photographs, and the most recent previous educational agency or institution attended by the student. (Examples of the types of information frequently released include, but are not limited to, Senior Class Listings, Annuals/Yearbooks, Science Fair Winners, Students of the Month, Honor Roll Lists, National Honor Society, athletic event programs, etc.) A parents or guardian of a student attending Aiken County Public Schools who would prefer that any or all of the information designated above not be released without the parent’s or guardian’s prior consent should so notify the office of the Deputy Superintendent in writing (1000 Brookhaven Drive, Aiken, SC 29803) no later than August 31, 2012. If there are any questions, please contact Mr. David M. Caver, Deputy Superintendent at (803) 641-2514.
 
As a parent, you have the right to know the professional qualifications of the classroom teachers and instructional assistants who instruct your child. Federal law allows you to ask for the following information about your child’s classroom teachers and requires the District to give you this information in a timely manner: whether the teacher is certified to teach the subjects and/or grade levels the teacher is teaching, whether the teacher’s certificate is a waiver or substandard certificate, the teacher’s academic major, graduate degrees, if any, and the teacher’s certification area. 
 
    If you would like to receive this information, please contact Human Resources at 641-2464.
