GOOD STANDING

In order to promote an environment that promotes academics and a positive learning environment, Andover High School has a definition for students in GOOD STANDING.


Students who are in GOOD STANDING at Andover High have met the following criteria:

  • No detention PAST DUE

  • Not failing more than ONE class

  • Not currently under probationary conditions assigned by administration

  • Administration can remove a student from GOOD STANDING for any violation of student handbook policy including truancy, unexcused absences, tardies, network misuse, out-of-class without a pass, behavior at school events, etc…


Students who are not in GOOD STANDING are not eligible for the following:

  • Honor Passes

  • Attendance at activity meetings during T-Time

  • Media Center passes

  • Extra-curricular events such as homecoming dances, etc…

  • OPEN LUNCH


Students will always have a path back to GOOD STANDING by:

  • Serving detention that is PAST DUE

  • Not failing more than ONE class

  • Completing probationary conditions

  • Making choices that do not violate the student handbook

SAFE

Andover High will again be participating in the SAFE program. SAFE stands for Seatbelts Are For Everyone. All you need to do/know is that Kansas Law requires that you wear your seat belt every time you are in a moving vehicle; "Every Trip, Every Time." Do this, and you will have several opportunities to win $25 Visa gift cards, just for wearing a seat belt. Watch for Officer Kintzel at the SAFE table during lunch. This will happen 4 times this year. Sign up all 4 times and have 4 chances to win a $150 Visa gift card. It's just that easy!
