PROGRESS REPORTS K-6 Weekly progress report will be sent home with the student every Monday. Please sign the progress report and your child must return it to school the next day. If you do not receive your child’s weekly progress report contact his/her teacher immediately. The student who does not return the parent signed progress report will lose recess for that day. ANTI-BULLYING POLICY K-12 The Guidance Charter School and School Board members do not/will not allow bullying in any manner directed specifically toward a pupil or school personnel. Bullying is recognized in the degree of personal degradation and/or disgrace to physical or mental harm. Any student who has knowledge of one person bullying another are encouraged to immediately report such conduct to the school Administration. The Principal shall immediately commence an investigation into the complaint. Bullying is considered to be a major offense and may result in the suspension or possible expulsion of any student. The school’s Anti-Bullying Policy “promotes mutual respect, civility and orderly conduct among students, employees, parents, and the public.” The policy states that if any individual disrupts or threatens to disrupt school or office operations the person will be directed to leave the school or school property. A member of the public who use obscenities or speaks in a demanding, loud, insulting or demeaning manner will be calmly requested to communicate civilly. If corrective action is not taken by the abusing party, the employee will verbally notify the abusing party that the meeting or telephone conference is terminated and if the meeting is on school premises, the offending person will be directed to leave promptly. California Education Code 44811 and Penal Codes 415.5 and 626.7 make it a misdemeanor if the person reenters any school facility within 30 days after being directed to leave or within seven days if the person is a parent/guardian of a student attending that school. Law enforcement may be notified if the individual refuses to leave upon request or returns before the applicable period of time. A copy of the complete Anti-Bullying Policy is available from the school office.
