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.

The sheet is available in English, Polish and Spanish. Downloadable PDF versions can be found at the following links:

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.

Policies Subject to Change
