Parent/Student Sign-Off Requirement


Each District 401 school has a student handbook. After reviewing the applicable handbook, every student and parent/guardian must review, sign and submit a Parent/Student Sign-Off Sheet.

One sign-off sheet must be submitted for each student.

What Signing the Sheet Means


Completing a Parent/Student Sign-Off Sheet indicates that the signers understand and accept the handbook that applies to them as well as all five parts of the sign-off sheet. These parts are:

► Part 1 — District Policies for Student Handbooks

► Part 2 — Cellular Phone Acceptable Use Policy and Parental Permission

► Part 3 — Publication of Student Photos

► Part 4 — Electronic Communication

► Part 5 — Notice for Directory Information

Each of these five parts is explained in the sign-off sheet.


Due Date


Please return the sign-off sheet no later than five school days after the student’s first day of classes. This form will also be included in each student’s beginning-of-the-year packet.
