Handbook Overview

Student handbooks cover topics ranging from homework and grading to student behavior in and out of the classroom. 

Parents and students are expected to be aware of and abide by the contents of their school's handbook as well as the rules and guidelines of all applicable District 401 policies

After reviewing their respective handbook, every student and parent/guardian must review, sign and submit a Parent/Student Sign-Off Sheet

A full explanation of the sign-off requirement can be found here and on our District Policies for Student Handbooks page.
