Mission Statement

We believe all students can learn; that a student will leave FUHS with the learning and skills needed to be successful in college and/or a career. This means that each year, each

individual student will grow because this is our focus and we will monitor this growth; we will align our resources and control the conditions for success.

ALMA MATER

We are proud of all thy prowess, Fullerton,

And we thy colors bravely bear. We will be thy loyal subjects ever;

Joy and grief we alike will with thee share.

(Chorus) Oh F.H.S., thy name we love,

And ever staunch and true you’ll find us. We’ll stand by thee, through all eternity,

The red and white so true.

ATTENDANCE—GENERAL All persons under eighteen years of age who have not graduated from high school are required by state law to attend school. Pupils over sixteen years of age may continue their

FULLERTON UNION HIGH SCHOOL· 1 FULLERTON UNION HIGH SCHOOL Fullerton Joint Union High School District 201 East Chapman Avenue, Fullerton, California 92832 - [PDF Document] (5)

5

education through alternative education programs or other special programs with parent and school permission. Because a large part of student success in school depends on regular class attendance, FUHS students are expected to attend each of their scheduled classes promptly and regularly, avoiding absences whenever possible.

ATTENDANCE—PERFECT Students who have zero absences from school are considered to have perfect attendance. Any absence from any class, even if cleared (e.g., ill, doctor’s appointment, college visits, etc.) disqualifies a student from earning perfect attendance. (School-sponsored events such as field trips are not absences.)

ABSENCES—CLEARING

Students have three days to clear absences after their return to school. Absences uncleared after three days will become unexcused. Every three unexcused absences will result in a loss of one unit of credit from each class where uncleared absences are recorded. Absences may be cleared by a written note from a parent or guardian within the three-day limit. The written excuse must have a parent/guardian’s contact name and phone number, the student’s short ID Number, and the justification for absence. If possible, please send written clearance prior to pre-arranged appointments to allow for easier dismissal and clearance of students.

ABSENCES—APPROVED Absences will be excused upon proper verification when due to illness, medical or dental appointments, court appearances, or recognized religious observances. Parents are asked to call the school at (714) 626-3822 on the day of a legitimate student absence and provide a written excuse upon the student’s return to school. If a student who is eighteen years would like to clear his/her own absences, written parent/guardian consent must be submitted. Upon review, the school may allow the student to clear his/her own absences.

ABSENCES--UNAPPROVED Absences with approval of parent or guardian that are not legal reasons for being excused will be unapproved. Examples of unapproved absences are babysitting, family vacations or trips, working, DMV appointment or driving tests, or other personal reasons. Assignments missed during unapproved absences may not be made up without permission from the teacher.

ABSENCES--UNEXCUSED In addition to school consequences for unapproved absences (i.e., loss of credits, Saturday School), students may be cited by the Fullerton Union Police Department for daytime curfew violation.

LEAVING DURING SCHOOL DAY Any absences resulting from a student leaving during the school day (doctor/dentist appointment, illness, court appearance, etc.) must be pre-approved by a parent either through a phone call or a note; absences of this type, not pre-approved, will be registered as CUTS/TRUANCIES. Students must first check out through the Attendance Office. If a student must leave during the school day due to illness, he/she must come to the Attendance Office where a parent/guardian will be contacted for approval.

TARDY POLICY

Promptness to class is considered an important factor in the student’s development. In addition, punctuality is necessary to the educational process because it reduces interruptions, increases time on task, and minimizes duplication of instruction. Student attendance is able to be tracked daily via ABI. The following are the consequences for habitual tardiness:

Third Tardy

§ The teacher assigns a consequence and reviews the problem with the student, advising him/her of the potential citizenship grade reduction and potential future Saturday School assignment.

Sixth Tardy

§ Teacher/Administrator issues a two-hour Saturday School assignment that must be signed by parent/guardian

§ Saturday School is logged in student discipline history § The student may receive an “N” (Needs Improvement) citizenship grade

Ninth Tardy § After receipt of referral from teacher, assigned administrator issues a four-hour

Saturday School assignment that must be signed by parent/guardian § Saturday School is logged in student discipline history § The student may receive a “U” (Unsatisfactory) citizenship grade.

Twelfth Tardy § After receipt of referral from teacher, assigned administrator may issue a one-day in-

school suspension. A parent conference is held before the student returns to school.

Fifteenth Tardy § Assigned administrator may issue a one-day suspension. A parent conference is held

before the student returns to school.

Failure to attend Saturday School may result in an In-School Suspension

PERSONAL ITEMS The Attendance Office cannot accept flowers, balloons, and similar items on students’ behalf. Thank you for not delivering or having these delivered to school. Additionally, if items (such as lunches, P.E. clothes, etc.) must be left for students in selected urgent situations, please understand that we cannot call for students from classes to retrieve these items; money and other items of worth may not be left at any time. Students are advised not to bring valuable items to school. Students are responsible for all personal and school-issued items. Fullerton Union High School provides P.E. and sports locker facilities, but cannot guarantee the security of items placed in lockers by students.

CHANGE OF ADDRESS/PHONE NUMBERS If at any time during the school year it becomes necessary for a student to change his/her home address or telephone number, the change should be reported to the Attendance Office, (714) 626-5453. Legal proof of change must be submitted with the request. Students who live outside the boundaries of Fullerton Union High School are not permitted to attend FUHS unless official Attendance Permit or Open Enrollment papers are on file with the Principal.

CLOSED CAMPUS

SKATEBOARDS, SCOOTERS, AND SKATES

The riding of skateboards, scooters, and in-line or roller skates on the Fullerton Union High School campus is prohibited. Students who bring a skateboard, scooter, or skates to school will be required to have them locked up or stored at all times while on campus. Skateboards, scooters, or skates ridden on campus may be confiscated and held by the Assistant Principal or School Resource Officer.

BICYCLES Bicycles are considered modes of transportation for students at Fullerton Union High School, and, therefore, students are allowed to ride them to and from school. However, they may not be ridden on FUHS property. Students are required to walk bikes while on campus. Bikes may be locked in the bike rack next to the front office or by the 150s bldg. (not against gates or fences); the school and District are not responsible for damage and/or theft of bike or bike parts. Violation of the above policy may result in disciplinary action. Citations may be given if policies are not followed.

LOST AND FOUND

Books and other articles found about the campus should be turned in to the Front Office where owners may reclaim them. If student or school property is lost or stolen during the school day, the student should fill out a theft report in the Front Office.

CONDUCT

In developing self-discipline, students shall be responsible for their own behavior. The following behavioral expectations are held for Fullerton Union High School students:

1. Showing respect and courtesy for the rights and feelings of others. 2. Behaving in a way that creates a positive learning environment. 3. Controlling behavior on campus and in the walkways so that classes in session are not

disturbed. 4. Behaving in a way to maintain the pride and good reputation of FUHS at school or at

any school-related function. 5. Helping to maintain a clean, safe campus. 6. Obeying all reasonable requests made by instructors, administrators, or other school

employees.

THREATS, INTIMIDATION, FIGHTING Intimidation involves threats of mental or physical harm or pressure. Examples of this behavior include, but are not limited to, bullying, domineering, extorting, or otherwise attempting to influence someone with the use of frightening action and/or words. Students who engage in threats, intimidation, or fighting may be subject to school and law enforcement consequences, including arrest and transfer from FUHS. It is the expectation

FULLERTON UNION HIGH SCHOOL· 1 FULLERTON UNION HIGH SCHOOL Fullerton Joint Union High School District 201 East Chapman Avenue, Fullerton, California 92832 - [PDF Document] (10)

10

that students remove themselves from potential physical altercations, and report behavior that may escalate to physical harm. It is important to note that education code does not distinguish between mutual combatants with regards to who may engage first. All parties are disciplined accordingly should a physical altercation take place. Should a student feel threatened, intimidated, or bullied, they need to report the action immediately to school administration. A conflict resolution will be held to correct the behavior and allow the offending party or parties to curb the unwarranted behavior. Should the behavior continue, progressive discipline will be used as deemed necessary for the health and safety of the students.

STUDENT SEARCHES Searches may be conducted by school officials when reasonable suspicion or cause in which that items, disruptive to school activities or illegal and/or dangerous objects or substances may be present on school property or when some other violation of law, district policy, or school rules and regulations is imminent or has occurred. Students may be required to empty their pockets and have their personal property searched. Searches may be conducted on items such as, but not limited to, clothing, purses, backpacks, lockers, cars, and cell phones.

SEXUAL HARASSMENT

Sexual harassment is defined as unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. Fullerton Union High School is committed to maintaining an educational environment free from harassment, embarrassment, intimidation, or insult on the basis of an individual’s gender. Action will be taken when necessary to eliminate such practices or remedy the effects. FUHS will not tolerate the sexual harassment of any student or employee by any other student or any District employee. Any student found guilty of sexual harassment shall be subject to disciplinary action up to and including expulsion. FUHS requests students to immediately report complaints of sexual harassment to the Principal or assistant principals. Any kind of retaliation for reporting sexual harassment is prohibited and will be dealt with severely.

NONDISCRIMINATION

Nondiscrimination on basis of sex, race, color, religious background, national origin or ancestry, ethnic group identification, marital or parental status, gender, age, physical or mental disability, gender preference, sexual orientation or the perception of one or more such characteristics, or economic status is not tolerated within the Fullerton Joint Union High School District.

SIGN AND POSTER REGULATION

FULLERTON UNION HIGH SCHOOL· 1 FULLERTON UNION HIGH SCHOOL Fullerton Joint Union High School District 201 East Chapman Avenue, Fullerton, California 92832 - [PDF Document] (11)

11

All flyers, posters, etc. need to be approved by the ASB Director or the Student Activities Administrator prior to distribution anywhere on campus.

EXTRACURRICULAR ATTENDANCE REQUIREMENT Students may not take part in an afternoon and/or evening school activity on any school day as participants unless they have been in attendance at school for all registered periods (Administrative Review 5353.1). Transfers issued by school authorities for school-related business will count as school attendance. Activities affected would include, for example, athletic contests, dramatic and musical performances, and speech contests.

CAFETERIA

The school cafeteria provides hot, nutritious lunches on school days. Snack type items are provided before school, at break, and at lunch. Students are not permitted to bring outside food/drink on campus for the purpose of sale. Unless otherwise instructed by their teacher, students are forbidden to take or consume food or drinks in the classrooms.

TEXTBOOK AND FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITIES

Students will be given textbooks to check out in most core courses; it is their responsibility to take care of the books properly and return them at the end of the course or when asked. Fines will be levied for damaged books (e.g., writing in books, etc.) or for non-return of books. Also students are often loaned school property for other classes/activities, such as athletic or band uniforms. Not returning school property will result in a fine upon student records. Students may not be able to participate in certain functions (e.g. dances, ceremonies, etc.), receive their diplomas, or transfer their transcripts unless all fines are cleared. Any check that is returned to FUHS due to insufficient funds or closed bank accounts will be assessed a returned check fee.

HEALTH SERVICES

Students are responsible for reporting all injuries which occur on school grounds. When medical attention is needed, the school personnel will contact parents so that they may take the student to the family physician. If the injury requires immediate medical attention, the Fullerton Paramedics will be called. It is imperative that the school have current phone numbers—home, work, and/or cell—so emergency contact can be made. Students who become ill at school should report to the Attendance Office where parents will be contacted for permission to leave school or to be picked up. Students who leave ill without going through the Attendance Office will be counted as truant and therefore unexcused.

LOCKDOWN/FIRE/DISASTER DRILLS

FULLERTON UNION HIGH SCHOOL· 1 FULLERTON UNION HIGH SCHOOL Fullerton Joint Union High School District 201 East Chapman Avenue, Fullerton, California 92832 - [PDF Document] (12)

12

During a fire drill, students will leave classrooms following the directions given by the teacher and will return to the classroom when “all clear” is announced. For disaster drills, teachers will direct students to drop and cover, and wait for evacuation instructions. Teachers will lead students to designated evacuation locations at the utility field until signaled to return to classes. A lockdown of school facilities is for security or safety reasons. An administrator or other campus personnel will announce “This is a Lockdown" over the loudspeaker system. Students will follow the directions of the teacher in their class; students not in direct supervision by a teacher (e.g., on the way to the restroom) should go to the nearest classroom. An all-clear will be called over the loud speaker system when it is deemed to be safe. Should a lockdown occur due to an Active Shooter presence, students and staff are to follow the “Run, Hide, Fight” training procedures.

PARKING

Students are to use the student parking lots on the east side of campus adjacent to Lemon Ave. and at the farm across the street from the stadium. Tickets will be issued for improper use of the student lot, such as reckless driving, illegal parking, and excessive speed over the limit of ten miles per hour. Students may go to their cars in the parking lot at lunch only. A maintenance fee of $20.00 per year will be charged for parking in the student lot. Students park at their own risk. Vehicles will be ticketed (or towed) if parked in the student parking lot without a valid permit.

LIBRARY

The library is open from 7:30am-3:30 pm for student use. During class time, a student may use the library by securing a transfer from the teacher. Books and periodicals are checked out for three weeks and may be renewed if necessary. Student must have school ID to check out materials.

ACCEPTABLE USE POLICY

The Acceptable Use/GAFE Policy (AUP) must be signed by both students and their parent/guardian in order to use the school’s Internet-ready computers. Students are responsible for their behavior on school computer networks just as they are in a classroom or school hallway. General school rules for behavior and communications apply, as do the standards addressed in the Acceptable Use/GAFE Policy. Students are required to turn in verification that both they and their parent/guardian read and will adhere to the Acceptable Use of Technology/GAFE agreement prior to the start of the school year. Agreement is found on the school website.

ID CARDS

FULLERTON UNION HIGH SCHOOL· 1 FULLERTON UNION HIGH SCHOOL Fullerton Joint Union High School District 201 East Chapman Avenue, Fullerton, California 92832 - [PDF Document] (13)

13

Pictures for identification cards (ID) will be taken at registration. ID cards are required to check out textbooks, library books, retrieve confiscated items, conduct business transactions in the Activities Office, and to identify students when attending dances and sporting events. The fee for a lost card is $5.00. Students may purchase an ASB sticker in the Activities Office, allowing students a discount price for school events.

ASB CARD

An ASB card is a tremendous bargain for all FUHS students. The purchase of the “ASB” designation on the student ID card entitles the student to purchase reduced price tickets for school athletic events, dances, plays, concerts, yearbooks, etc. It also provides the opportunity to purchase some of these items pre-sale to avoid longer lines. The income from the purchase of an ASB card supports a broad co-curricular program of sports, band, drama, vocal music, school newspaper, yearbook, speech/debate, and special student assemblies.

FINANCIAL RESPONSIBILITY Fullerton Union High School will accept payment by check for purchases made for P.E. uniforms, yearbooks, ASB stickers, school related functions, etc. Checks returned for “NSF” or “account closed” reasons will be charged a “returned check fee” for each check returned. Checks will not be accepted during the months of April or May.

THEFT

Please help us eliminate stealing at Fullerton Union High School.

Fullerton Union High School cannot be responsible for investigating if they become lost or stolen. By keeping these items of value at home, students protect themselves from being a victim of theft.

Neither Fullerton Union High School nor the Fullerton Joint Union High School District is responsible for any lost or stolen property.

INTERNALTIONAL BACCALAUREATE FUHS is proud to offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) program as part of its Honors curriculum. Testing for entry into the IB program is held at FUHS each spring. Please contact the IB coordinator at 714-626-3994 for more information. College and universities throughout the U.S. and world recognize the IB program and successful completion of the full diploma program may enable the student to enter college in a second-year standing.

ACADEMIC HONESTY POLICY Academic honesty depends on the student taking responsibility for producing work that is reflective of the student's best effort. Academic dishonesty is evidenced by cheating or plagiarizing and involves an attempt by a student to show possession of knowledge and skills he/she does not possess. The following actions are reflective of academic dishonesty and are subject to disciplinary action by teacher, school, and/or District. Some offenses may be criminal in nature and therefore prosecutable under local, state, or federal laws. • Using dishonest, deceptive or fraudulent means to obtain or attempt to obtain credit for

academic work; • Using notes, aids, or another student’s assistance to complete a test, a project or other

assignment in a way other than that expressly permitted by the teacher. Unless otherwise directed by the teacher, students should accomplish all assignments individually;

• Looking at another student’s test, answer sheet, or other materials; • Copying from or allowing another student to copy from a test, homework, or other

course work—which is not intended to be collaborative in nature; • Tampering with an instructor’s records of grades or scores; • Plagiarizing materials: the taking of specific or general substance of another person’s

work and offering it as one’s own work without giving credit to the original author. Plagiarizing encompasses omitting quotation marks for directly quoted material, omitting bibliographic references either in the text or on a source page appended at the end of the assignment, and/or paraphrasing an author without giving credit to that author for use of his or her ideas. Paraphrasing is the student’s uses of an author’s ideas by rewording and/or rearranging that author’s original text.

GRADING

Students will receive grading reports at the quarter and at the end of each semester; quarter report cards are considered a progress report, with final credits being awarded only with the semester-end report card. A student with parent, teacher, and counselor approval may elect credit/no credit status for certain courses. Credit/no credit course status must be approved by the last day of the first or third quarter. See the Guidance Office for a credit/no credit form.

An incomplete grade assigned by a teacher means the student has not completed all of the requirements or assignments necessary to receive a grade in the course; failure to clear the incomplete within the following semester will result in an "F" grade being assigned. A no-mark grade may be used in cases where the student has enrolled in a course too late in the grading period for a letter grade to be earned. Accessing Student Information Through Aeries Browser Interface (ABI) Fullerton Union High School, along with all schools in the Fullerton Joint Union High School District uses ABI to enable parents and students online access to information such as attendance, grades, transcripts, and more via the Internet. Parents are able to access grade information 24 hours a day, seven days a week, via the online tool Aeries Browser Interface (ABI). Report cards and progress reports will no longer be printed and mailed unless requested in writing. If you have not already created an account, information will be available at the beginning of the school year. Information will be available with instruction on how to create an account to allow ABI access. To create an ABI account you will need: • A valid email address • The home telephone number of the student as listed in school records • The student permanent identification number • A Verification Pass Code (VPC)

MAKE-UP WORK School work missed because of legitimate absences should be made up within a period of time equal to that of the absence, unless extended time arrangements are made with the instructor. It is at the discretion of the teacher to provide worked missed due to formal suspensions. It is the responsibility of the student to arrange with his/her teachers for making up work missed. All work must be completed and turned in to receive a grade.

UNSATISFACTORY PROGRESS REPORT (UPR) Unsatisfactory progress reports may be sent by teachers at any time during the school year when a student is in danger of failing a class or in danger of not receiving full credit because of truancies or tardies. Parents, guardians, and students are encouraged to sign up and monitor attendance and grades through the online ABI program. Check with the Front Office for information on how to log into the system.
