Any exceptions to this dress code will be announced. Principals, along with other administrators and teachers, are responsible for administering the dress code. The administrator’s decision about dress code issues is final. If this dress code is not followed by the students of Hubbard Exempted Village, then the district will implement a school uniform policy according to ORC.3313.66.5
To decree a grooming guideline that would pertain to every conceivable attire would be cumbersome and never-ending. The above criteria, hopefully will serve as a positive guide to the students of Hubbard Exempted Village Schools. If any attire not listed above is questionable or extreme, the building administration will make a decision whether or not it is appropriate for the school.
Dress Code Violations:
All suspected dress code violations must come to the office with a dress code violation pass. Students will not be provided clothes to change into from the office or nurse, and will only be allowed to call home for new clothes in emergency situations (if a parent/guardian cannot be contacted the student may be placed in in-school suspension). All dress code violations are tracked and recorded and the following matrix will be used if it is determined to be a violation.
Violation 1&2 - Verbal Warning
Violation 3 - One Detention
Violation 4 - Two Detentions
Violation 5 – One Day ALC
Violation 6 or more – Administrator discretion
Please be advised that the attendance policy has changed. Hubbard Schools will no longer go by days, therefore we will be tracking hours. One School Day is equivalent to 6 hours. Students who are not excused from school will fall under Habitual Truancy
Habitual Truancy is equal to any unexcused absences and meet the following criteria:
30 or more consecutive hours
42 or more hours in one month
72 or more hours in a year RC 2151.011 (B)(17)
Absence Intervention Team (AIT)
The AIT will put into place an absence intervention plan for the student. It will identify the nature of the student's attendance problem, Allow recommendations from the parents, students, and school personnel to solve the attendance problem. Action will then be taken by the parent/guardian and the student to resolve the causes of the absences.
The attendance officer shall file a complaint in juvenile court on the 61st day after implantation of an absence intervention plan if all of the following apply:
- The student has unexcused absences of 30+ consecutive hours, 42+ hours in one month, or 72+ hours in a school year.
- The district has made meaningful attempts to reengage the student through the absence intervention plan or other intervention strategies and alternative to adjudication;
- The student has refused to participate in or failed to make satisfactory progress on the plan, strategies, or alternatives (RC 3321.16)
The school district, working in concert with the juvenile court, has the duty to take measures to improve habitual absenteeism, truancy, and tardiness. While specific responsibility for each action can be specified in procedures delineated by the administration, the following shall be used to create a graduated and consistent approach to dealing with excessive absenteeism.
Excessive Absence. Ohio’s Senate Bill 410 deals specifically with truancy and missing of school. There is one classifications of this bill and it is “Habitual Truant”. If the student is truant for more than 30 or more consecutive hours in a week, 42 or more hours in a month, or 72 or more hours in a year without a legitimate excuse, as defined below, the child meets the legal definition of a “habitual truant.” This is considered an unruly offense by the juvenile court. The parent should be notified of a student's absences with or without excuse if it exceeds 38 or more hours in a month or 65 or more hours in a year.
A letter of notification of excessive unexcused absences will be mailed to parents.
