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

► Part 1 | District Policies for Student Handbooks
Please read Part 1 in the sign-off sheet and see below — "District Policies for Sign-Off"
► Part 2 | Cellular Phone Acceptable Use Policy and Parental Permission
Please read Part 2 in the sign-off sheet
► Part 3 | Using a Photograph or Video Recording of a Student
Please read Part 3 in the sign-off sheet
► Part 4 | Electronic Communication

► Part 5 | Notice for Directory Information

Each of these five parts is explained in the sign-off sheet. See below for links to the policies, procedures and exhibits that must be reviewed for Part 1.
