Development of the Parental Involvement Policy and School-Parent-Student Compacts

The District Advisory Committee (DAC) is comprised of parents, members of the community, business leaders, teachers, school administrators, and district leadership. The District Advisory Committee is the District equivalent of campus site-based teams and, as such, plays an important role in Carroll ISD. The committee serves in an advisory capacity to the Board of Trustees. This committee will discuss the design and implementation of the District Improvement Plan, Parent Involvement Policy and School-Parent-Student Compact, among other tasks. The compact explains how students, parents/caregivers, and employees will share responsibility for promoting student success.

Carroll ISD will actively recruit volunteers for the District Advisory Committee (DAC) through various avenues of publicity. Committee selections will strive to produce a diverse parent population that will include all student groups serviced by the district with

arrangements for translators to help with communications, if needed. Meetings will be planned at convenient times and locations for all members of the committee.

A Note from Nurse Cooley


As the year goes by, if you are cleaning out your closets, and you have t-shirts, athletic shorts, or sweatpants you are getting rid of, please consider donating them to the CHS clothes closet for students’ use. Donations can be brought to the CHS front office.

If your student has borrowed clothing we would appreciate it if they would return the clothing asap.

Thank you for your help!

Commuting Between Campuses

Students must commute between campuses (CHS/CSHS) via the district provided shuttle bus. The only exception is when a student begins or ends their day on a campus that is not their home campus, they may commute in their personal vehicle only for first or last block.

Transporting other students in their vehicles is also prohibited.


We offer AFTER SCHOOL ACTIVITY PASSES (at no charge) for students who, after their last class of the day, need to be transported to the other high school for a school sponsored sport or activity. This pass may be obtained by picking-up an application from the CSHS or CHS office. Once completed, it must be signed by the coach or sponsor of the activity or sport and returned to the office. All students must then sign the bus rider contract. Passes will be available for students to pick-up at the office within three (3) school days. Students must present their pass to the bus driver each time they need to ride or will not be allowed to ride. This pass is not necessary if the student has a valid annual or semester bus pass. Please note that misuse of the pass will require immediate forfeiture of the pass and it must be used for transportation to school activities only.

2019-2020 Bus Passes

Bus passes are available for purchase online or at the CISD Administration Center. Individual bus passes are $275/annual or $148/semester, and family bus passes are $550/annual and $296/semester.

CHS Student Drop Off and Pick Up

Parents for the safety of our students please do not park or line up in the student parking lot instead of waiting in the “parent” lines at drop off and pick up.

When drivers park in a student’s space in the morning or block student drivers in their spaces after school, it causes concern between students with parking spots trying to get to class or home and parents disregarding the designated pick up and drop off zone.

Nurses Note

If you have not already done so, please update your student’s health history on Skyward. On CISD’s Health Services website, https://www.southlakecarroll.edu/Domain/48, you can find links for Action Plans for asthma, allergies, seizures, etc. as well as MAR forms. In the next week or two, I will begin screening for hearing and vision for students new to Carroll High School.

As a reminder, students are not allowed to carry medications (over-the-counter or prescription). You may keep medications in the nurse's office for daily or as needed administration. Please be sure medicine is in original container, not expired, and has a signed MAR. Prescriptions also require a doctor signature. Inhalers, epipens, and diabetic supplies are the only exceptions to the carry policy, but the student does have to turn in the MAR and documentation from the doctor saying it is OK to carry. It is best if medications to carry are labeled, too. Also, the nurse is unable to dispense medicine, even Advil or Tylenol, unless it the student's own medicine brought in specifically for them.

Thank you for your help!

9th & 10th Grade students must enter classrooms by 8:00 am when classes start. All students must sign in at the attendance office if they arrive at 8:01 am or after. Late students must have a doctor's note, parent call or parent note letting attendance know that they are aware that their student was tardy.


9th Grade students. Parent/guardians of 9th graders must physically sign their student out at the attendance office for early dismissal. If someone other than a parent/guardian is picking up a student, that person must be listed on the family's emergency contact list located in Family Access. Parents/guardians must contact the attendance office if a person - not on their emergency contact list - is picking up their child. The office is required to make a copy of that person's driver's license in order for the student to be released and that person needs to sign the student out.

10th Grade. As we know, many of our 10th graders drive, therefore they are permitted to sign-out with the attendance office for an early dismissal provided parents/guardians have notified the attendance office in writing. The note from parents requesting an early dismissal must be dated/signed and dropped off at the attendance office first thing in the morning. We will then provide the student with a pass to return to the attendance office at the early dismissal time to sign-out and exit the campus. If your 10th grader is returning that day, please ensure they sign in at the attendance office upon return so their attendance record will be noted properly.

FYI, For our students’ safety, it is important that they sign in when arriving late or sign out when leaving early. Students who do not comply with this safety measure will be referred to the Assistant Principal’s office per the CHS Handbook.

Closed Campus

CSHS and CHS are closed campuses and students may not leave campus during lunch.

Item Drop Off

There is a table at the front entrance of CHS where students can collect all items dropped off by parents. Please make sure any item dropped off is labeled with their name and your student knows to collect them. Please note that your student may not leave the building to collect items from your vehicle, these must be brought into the building and dropped off.

Student ID Badges

CISD Student ID’s are issued only once during your 4 years at Carroll/Carroll Senior High. DO NOT discard your current ID, if you do and you need a new one, the cost to replace your ID will be $10.00. Please see the Guidance Office for replacement if you are at the CHS campus. Students at CSHS should see Mrs. Cranford in the Library.

All students must have their ID’s with you daily for entrance to the buildings as this is your key, the outside doors will be locked and not open for entrance without your ID.

Freshman and new students will be issued badges during the first two weeks of school.

Operation #SAFEdragon

Operation #SAFEdragon

The goals of the #SAFEdragon program are to improve safety and security within Carroll ISD and promote emergency preparedness among students and staff. Remember when visiting our campuses to always enter through the main offices so we can properly sign you in and print you a badge. Students should never open the doors for anyone, not even friends. Be a #SAFEdragon!

Parking Permits

High school students parking on campus must purchase a parking permit, which are on sale now and are purchased online. Permit stickers will be available for pickup at CHS and CSHS with proof of payment, license, and insurance.

**Please note: 10th graders are the only CHS students allowed to drive to school and park on campus. https://ticketracker.com/store/category?schoolId=1701&catalogCategoryId=1959

CHS Parking Violation

Remember that ONLY sophomores, juniors and seniors are allowed to drive/park at CHS and should be parking in the north band lot where ample space is provided.

Carroll High School will begin placing wheel locks on vehicles that are parked in unauthorized areas or vehicles that do not have a current CHS/CSHS parking permit. If a student is illegally parked for one or more of the following reasons they are subject to be booted, towed or both. Cost for removal of the booting device is $30.00.

Violations include:


· Parked in a HANDICAPPED space

· Parked in a FIRE LANE

· Blocking entrance to a building or driveway (fire department regulation)

· Parking in an unauthorized parking area (i.e. staff or visitor parking)

· Blocking access to a trash receptacle or dumpster

· Improperly parked

· Additional violations as warranted

If a student is booted they will find a neon orange sticker (sample above) affixed on the driver’s side window. Failure to pay will result in disciplinary action.

Please ensure that students parking on campus have a permit on their vehicle. The link to purchase is https://www.southlakecarroll.edu/Page/1882

Please feel free to contact the Assistant Principal’s office at 817-949-5626 with any questions.


Verification of Enrollment is required for students getting a permit or license. There is a sign-up sheet in the front office. If you sign in before noon, forms can be picked up by 3:21 pm, after noon forms can be picked up the next school day. Forms are good for 30 days.
