• Magnet Expectations


    taken from AR 5117.4:  Assignment of Pupils - Magnet Schools

          
    Magnet students are expected to exhibit exemplary conduct at the school to which they are assigned and to attend school.  A student who attends a magnet school outside of his/her choice zone shall be subject to the following requirements:    
            
    a) If a student accumulates ten (10) or more unexcused absences or thirty (30) or more unexcused tardies/early releases, the student may be re-assigned to his/her residential school at the end of the year.    
            
    b) If a student fails or refuses to exhibit exemplary conduct (any out-of-school suspensions), the student may be re-assigned to his/her residential school at the end of the school year.    
            
    c) A student admitted to a magnet school who does not complete magnet program requirements may be returned to their residential school at the end of the school year. (At Atkins, this means the successful completion of the required STEM classes in the major.)    
            
    d) Principals must warn parents in writing by the end of the third quarter if a student is in danger of being reassigned to his/her home school.    
            
    e) Principals must notify parents in writing by May 1 if a student is being reassigned to his/her home school.
