The Deans' Digest

Week of 9/28-10/2

Living Documents

As always, I will include upcoming events for each week in the digest. However, it is important to note that the CPT calendar is a living document. As the year unfolds, I make a point to update the calendar. Whenever I make changes, I make a note on the google doc, AND I hang the most up-to-date calendar in the faculty lounge, Jarvis' (old) office, and by the mailboxes.

This week:

Monday: Grade Level 11/12 (&6)

Wednesday: Idea Block Training

TIME STUDY=$$$$ for Beacon!

Did you know that by completing the time-study just once per quarter can bring in as much as $50,000.00 in for Beacon?

Think about the great things we could do with that kind of money!!

Please log your time study hours into if you didn't last week! Please complete before WEDNESDAY of this week!

Murphy's Memo

We are just about at the halfway mark for Quarter 1! New enrichment opportunities will begin in 2 weeks and we are in full swing for college visits.

Please remind your students that Picture Day is Oct 2nd, make ups are only taken for those absent that day.

Reminder: The attendance policy also impacts failure of a course.

Loss of Credit for Courses due to Absence:

  • Students may not receive credit if they have missed more than eighteen (18) days of the school year for yearlong courses or nine (9) days for semester long courses as documented by the front office staff. Parents will be notified of the student’s absence status through phone call and certified mail. After a student has accumulated eighteen (18) absences in a yearlong class or nine (9) absences in a semester long class, he/she may not receive credit for the year. In totaling absences, all absences, excused or unexcused, will be counted. Absences for sickness with or without a doctor's note, extra vacation, and truancy are all totaled together.
  • To receive credit for a course in which a student has been absent more than eighteen days for yearlong courses or nine days for semester course, a student may be assigned to the Give Back Program at the discretion of the Compliance Committee.
  • Students who do not meet the necessary requirements as set forth by the Compliance Committee will be required to attend summer school at their own expense to remediate the lost credits.
