Policy JFCJ

The School Board requires written notification of an offense to the parent, guardian or other person having charge or control of a pupil in an alternative education program as described in Va. Code § 22.1-209.1:2 when

  • a pupil commits an offense in violation of School Board policies and school officials determine the offense was committed without the willful intent to violate such policies, or
  • the offense did not endanger the health and safety of the individual or other persons.

The notification shall be made no later than two school days following the incident. The School Board requires the principal of the school the child attends, or other appropriate school personnel, to develop appropriate measures, in conjunction with the pupil's parent or guardian, for correcting such behavior.
