Over the past three months the High School Expectations Committee, comprised of parents, teachers and administrators, have worked diligently to discuss and troubleshoot opportunities for improvement and issues needing to be addressed in the high school system. During the May 4th meeting, the committee discussed recommendations centralized around the three main topics of: attendance, expectations, and accountability. The resulting two proposed policies, outlined below, were presented to the Board of Trustees during the May 11, 2015 meeting.
The Board of Trustees will review these proposed polices, with revisions, during a second reading at the next Board of Trustees meeting on June 8th, 2015 held in the Jefferson Room of the Central Services Facility.

New Board Policy 5375 – Professional Guidelines for Students and Staff
The Natrona County School District Board of Trustees believes the way you look and speak affects your behavior and academic performance. It is the intent to create a culture in schools where the focus is on learning.
The attached guidelines support this effort. (photo below)
Students will be referred to the administrator to secure acceptable clothing should their dress not comply. Parents, or guardians, will be contacted.
All staff shall dress in a manner that distinguishes them as professionals. Tee-shirts and jeans are not professional dress. Jeans may be worn when school is not in session, on Fridays, or on field trips, at the discretion of the administrator.
The Natrona County School District Board of Trustees believes that schools are first and foremost learning institutions. Cell phones, and other mobile devices, are a distraction and disruptive to the educational process.
The use of cell phones, or other mobile devices, whether by staff or students, is not permitted in class. They must be properly stored, not visible, and are only permitted in classroom projects directed by staff.
The use of cell phones, and other mobile devices, is permitted during lunch periods.
Unauthorized use of these devices will result in confiscation and they will be stored in the school office until the end of the school day.
Parents who need to speak with their child(ren) may contact the school office to request assistance.
Students and staff are responsible for the security of their cell phone or other mobile devices. The District is not responsible for loss or theft of such devices.
