Students are present on time and in all classes and stay at school throughout the teaching day, unless they are sick or have apologized beforehand for a family emergency. Other areas covered are guidelines on duties and disciplinary measures. Schools now have the power to prosecute students or parents who behave violently towards other students or staff members, but the homeschool agreement will make it clear what kind of behaviour is expected of students and what the limits are. Parents cannot be brought to justice for breach of contractual conditions. A child should not be excluded from school, nor should the school treat the child or parents because of the parents` absence or refusal to sign a parental declaration. Indeed, schools cannot encourage parents to sign the parental declaration before the child is admitted to school, nor to make it a prerequisite for the child`s admission to school. Thank you for sharing that. Your timing is impeccable! The school year in New Zealand starts next week. I will share your contribution with my team. 🙂 A homeschooling agreement is a statement explaining the goals and values of your child`s school, their responsibilities to their students, the responsibilities of the student`s parents, and expectations of students. Since their introduction in September 1999, they have been part of the administrative process when a child starts school. The advantage of essential agreements is to define a culture of community learning, determined by the learners of that community.
Effective July 1, 27, 2007, this agreement is between Belle Isle Enterprise Middle School («Enterprise School»), Belle Isle Enterprise Middle School, Inc., a non-profit corporation of Oklahoma («BIEMS, Inc.»), and the undersigned student («Student») and his/her parents or legal guardians («parents» or «Parents») for enrollment in enterprise school for the 2007-2008 school year. · A probation meeting may take place after the 9th absence and the student may be asked to bring a medical card for any future absence. The school can also send the district representative for a home visit. Students with excessive absences can be referred to the District School Attendance Review Board (SARB). · Family holidays are considered unexcused absences and should therefore be scheduled on extracurricular days. Prior authorisation in principle is required in case of special circumstances/emergencies. Whenever possible, a parental wish letter is required at least a week in advance. Another registration during an extended inexcusable absence cannot be guaranteed.
I really like this article and found it resigning. Last year, in the first year, we worked to know what we need to do in school and what is learning? The students enjoyed sharing their dream environment in the classroom. We dropped everything and recorded all their proposals. Like the second set of rules, most student exchanges were the right thing not to do. As a team of teachers, we grouped the was-non-to`s into three simple titles, the students helped with sorting. We concluded three essential agreements for space, which included almost all the proposals, listened, cared for, learned. These three words were then used as questions: «Did you pay attention when you resorted to Fred`s work? Did you listen when Jane asked to play?, What did you learn here? ». . . .
