WARRIOR BUCKS INCENTIVE PROGRAM
Warrior Bucks is an incentive program, funded thru FedEx, which rewards students for their attendance, grades, and conduct during the school year. Every student that is enrolled at Booker T. Washington High School is eligible to win the prizes.
Prizes are given to the top five students from each grade (9th – 12th) based on the points that they received for that nine weeks. At the end of the school year, large prizes are given to the top students from each grade based on the accumulation of points from the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd nine weeks.
Points Breakdown
Conduct

Each student is given 100 points for E’s and S’s only (N’s and U’s = disqualification)


Attendance

-Students are given 100 points for attendance

-Subtract 1 point for every tardy and absences listed on the report card
Grades

*Every ‘A’ the student receives 4 points

*Every ‘B’ the student receives 3 points

*Every ‘C’ the student receives 2 points

*Every ‘D’ the student receives 1 point

*Every ‘F’ the student receives 0 points

-Add all points

-Divide points by the total number of classes

-Multiply by 25
Final Calculations

Conduct + Attendance + Grade = Total

Finally, take the total and divide by 3

TOTAL/3 = # of Warrior Bucks Points


Example:

John Doe 1st nine weeks

Class Absences Grade Conduct

English 10 4 87 S

Algebra 2 3 81 S

Lifetime Wellness 3 95 E

Biology 2 93 S

Spanish 1 5 72 S

General Music 4 88 E

World History 5 77 S

Carpentry 2 91 E
Conduct

Student has 3 E’s, and 5 S’s = 100 points


Attendance

Student has 28 absences and 0 tardies. 100 – 28 = 72


Grades

Student has 2 A’s = 8 points

Student has 3 B’s = 9 points

Student has 2 C’s = 4 points

Student has 1 D = 1 point

No points are given for F’s, N’s, or U’s.

22 divided by 8 = 2.75

2.75 multiplied by 25 = 68.75 points


Final Calculations

Conduct = 100 points

Attendance = 72 points

Grades = 68.75 points

100 + 72 + 68.75 = 240.75 Warrior Buck Points

Grading Scale

93 – 100 = A

85 – 92 = B

75 – 84 = C

70 – 74 = D

69 – below = F



RELATING TO TEXTBOOKS:
Students are responsible for all books issued to them. When a textbook is lost, the student must pay for the textbook before the teacher can issue another one. The final reports will not be mailed if the student has not returned their books or paid the fees.

STUDENT RULES AND REGULATIONS
Introduction

The policies and procedures contained in this handbook are the result of a concerted effort of the faculty, administration, parent and student representatives. This information has been carefully prepared and will be of great value in helping you to adjust to the school. If adhered to, these guidelines will help provide a safe, healthy and orderly environment in which to learn. It is the student’s responsibility to become familiar with all rules.


RELATING TO ATTENDANCE
Board Policies for Attendance

(Click to view)


The following steps will be taken for students who arrive to school late without a parent/guardian or doctor’s excuse:

1st Offense – Verbal Warning/Letter to Parent

2nd Offense – Detention

3rd Offense – Detention

4th Offense – Overnight Suspension/Attendance Team Referral

5th Offense – Success Team Referral/Create Contract

7th Offense – Expulsion

Tardy to School:

Students reporting to school after 7:05 A.M. must report to student support for an admit. All students arriving to school after 7:30 AM MUST have a parent/legal guardian to check in. Students who receive 3 or more tardies will be referred to the Attendance Review Team. All students tardy to school must enter the outside door in the vocational building near the visitor’s parking lot. (Georgia Street).


Tardiness to Class:

Students are expected to be in their assigned seats in each class by the ringing of the tardy bell. Tardiness will be recorded by each classroom teacher and reported each nine weeks on the report card. Students who are tardy will miss an important part of the class lesson as teachers explain what is to take place during the class period. It is important to be on time.

Students who are tardy to class will receive progressive disciplinary action. Students may obtain an admit from the Student Support Center (Ms. Pickett).
Excused Tardies during school:

1. Note from Guidance

2. Note from Administration/Pupil Services

3. Note from Sponsor (after pep rally or assembly)

2

Detention/Saturday School

3

School Improvement Services

4

Overnight Suspension (Attendance Team Referral)

5

In School Suspension (ISS)

*Please note that this cycle starts over each nine-week grading period.


It is also very important to note that students will be referred to the Truancy Officer for excessive absences/tardies.
Excused Absences:

Absences are considered “excused” if due to injury, illness, doctor’s appointment, or death in the family. Students will be allowed to make up work when absences are excused. Please note: Over-sleeping, family trips, shopping, babysitting, and paying bills for family members are unexcused absences and may result in poor classroom performance. In these cases, teachers may not allow work to be made up.


Excused Absences

  1. Personal illness of the pupil.

  2. Death or serious illness in the immediate family of the pupil (three days).

  3. Validated court appearances of the pupil.

  4. Recognized religious holiday/event.

  5. Any other unusual cause acceptable to the principal. (These reasons will include approved school sponsored/sanctioned activities.)


Make-up Assignments of Absentees:

When a student has an excused absence, teachers are not obligated to initiate make-up work. It is the responsibility of the student to arrange with his/her teachers (at a time convenient to the teacher) for make-up assignments and tests missed. Teachers are not responsible for ensuring that make-up assignments are completed.


Truancy:

A student who is found to be truant (out of school without the parent’s knowledge) may be issued a suspension. Failure of the parent to respond will result in further action.


Students who are absent 3 or more days without documentation WILL NOT participate in any school related activities this includes but not limited to: Athletics, Field Trips, Graduation and Senior Activities etc.
Homework Assignments during Absence:

If a student knows that he or she will be absent for several days for a justifiable reason, it is possible for homework assignments to be sent home. Arrangements for this must be made through the Guidance Department.


Consequences for Unexcused Absences

The following procedures are used when students are absent without an excuse:




  • First two unexcused absences: Phone calls to a student’s parent/guardian each time the student is absent.




  • Third unexcused absence: Warning letter informing parent/guardian of truancy laws and the consequences of not complying with the law; request for a parent teacher conference.




  • Fifth unexcused absence: Warning letter from the U.S. District Attorney’s Office sent home; student’s parent/guardian must attend a meeting and become part of their child’s Student Attendance Review Team (SART) to address the causes of unexcused absences and identify interventions.




  • Ten or more unexcused absences: The student’s case shall be sent to a city-wide Student Attendance Review Board (SARB), which includes individuals from other organizations that work with students. This Board will work with parents/guardians to try and restore a student’s regular attendance at school.




  • If the student continues to accumulate unexcused absences, the case will be referred to Juvenile Court and the U.S. District Attorney General for prosecution for failure to follow the compulsory attendance laws. In accordance with state law, students who have over ten (10) consecutive or fifteen (15) total unexcused absences in a semester will be referred to the Department of Safety for drivers’ license denial/revocation. (This applies to students who are fifteen (15) years of age or older.) A copy of the notice shall be mailed to the student’s parents/guardian.


Unauthorized Absence from Class (Class Cutting/Leaving Campus):

Any student who is absent from class without authorization from school personnel is considered as cutting class. Administrative action will be taken.


Permission to Leave School:

Students seeking permission to leave school prior to 2:00 P.M. must be checked-out by a parent/guardian. Parent/Guardian must show I.D. in order to check-out student. No dismissals will be issued over the telephone.


THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE.
NO DISMISSALS will be issued during the following times:

10:45am – 12:10pm (student lunches)



After 1:30 P.M.
Early releases will be treated in the same manner as tardiness. Hence, excessive early releases, that are not medically related and/or three (3) unexcused early releases, will result in the following:

1st Offense – Verbal Warning

2nd Offense – Documented Telephone Call to Parent

3rd Offense – Documented Attendance Team Referral

4th Offense – Parent/Guardian Conference Request (Intervention Plan Created)

5th Offense – Success School Referral



Hall Passes
Each student is required to have a signed hall pass in order to be in the hall for any reason (restroom, office, etc.). Teachers will not give hall passes during the first 10 minutes or the last 10 minutes of a class block.

RELATING TO CLEARING A SUSPENSION

In an effort to preserve our instructional time, all suspensions must be cleared from 2:15 PM – 2:30 PM. No Exceptions!


  • Suspensions may be cleared by a parent/legal guardian only.

  • Parents must arrive IN Student Support BY 2:15 PM.

  • All suspensions that are not cleared in a timely manner will be referred to the Truancy Officer.

  • Students mat NOT participate or attend school sponsored activities until suspensions are cleared. (i.e. Athletics, Games, Field Trips, Dances/prom etc.)

Steps for Clearing Each Suspension: (Overnights Excluded)
