    EJ Service Animals, EJ-E-1 Request to be Accompanied by Service Animal and EJ-E-2 Service Animal Agreement

    The Service Animal policy supports both staff and students whose disability may require the use of a service animal to perform a specific task or service.  The new policy provides clear guidance for all district stakeholders on the provision of service animals in the work and education environments and is coupled with an application and agreement.

    JH, JH-E and JH-R Student Attendance

    In policy JH definitions were moved from the regulation to the policy to achieve greater clarity for the user.  In regulation JH-R the guidance from the exhibit was incorporated into the regulation to better support policy JH.  Exhibit JH-E is a flowchart reflecting the process outlined in the policy and regulation.

    JHB, JHB-R Truancy

    This policy now defines "habitually truant" as 4 unexcused absences in one month or 10 in any school year.  It also requires schools to notify parents of their obligations and to establish a system to monitor absences and notify parents of those absences.  Finally, it requires a plan for students at risk with a goal of the child remaining in school.  Regulation JHB-R has been repealed and pertinent information has been moved to the policy, JHB.

    JJA-1, JJA-1-R Student Organizations

    Schools may encourage students to broaden their knowledge and citizenship by permitting the formation of clubs or other groups that relate to subject matter covered by the curriculum.  The principal shall develop general guidelines for the establishment and operation of student organizations within the particular school.  The faculty advisor must attend every meeting of the student organization whether conducted on school premises or at another location.

    JJA-2, JJA-2-R Student Organizations-Open Forum (Secondary Schools)

    Students in secondary schools shall be permitted to organize and conduct meetings of non-curriculum- related student clubs or other groups to pursue specialized activities outside the classroom.  Meetings shall occur on school premises only during non-instructional time.  Requests must originate from a student or groups of students.  A staff member must attend every meeting or activity scheduled on the school premises as a monitor.
