  3. At that point, the Social Worker will meet with the student and refer them to Probation based on the findings of the internal investigation.

  4. Based on the Probation recommendation, assistant principals will be given the final paperwork for signature and authorization.

**Tardiness and truancy are separated by the “20-minute rule.” If a student reaches his or her destination within 20 minutes of the time required to start a class, lunch, or school, it is a tardy. If the student reaches his or her destination beyond the 20 minutes of the start to class, lunch or school it is considered truancy.

***The building principal and grade level assistant principals reserve the right to show discretion on any of the above penalties based on special or mitigating circumstances.
