    Board Policy – 5121 – Students
    Section III B 2: Grading - Components of a Grade - High School - Citizenship Grades

    a. The citizenship grade is based on the following behavioral and attitudinal descriptors included with each letter grade to better communicate to the student and parent/guardian, the meaning of the assigned grade.
    1. An “A” grade in citizenship should represent the standard of good classroom citizenship. This standard indicates that the student is attentive, stays on task, complies with teacher requests, is courteous to others, treats equipment well, contributes positively to the class learning climate, follows class rules and procedures, and is on time to class.
    2. The “B” student demonstrates occasional transgressions of the expectations listed in the standards for the “A” student but makes an effort not to repeat them.
    3. The “C” student demonstrates occasional transgressions of the expectations listed for the “B” standard and may be inattentive, off task, unprepared or occasionally tardy. The student may require reminders from the teacher to remain on task.
    4. The “D” student is disruptive to the class and learning environment and makes little effort to correct his/her behavior even after disciplinary actions are taken. The “D” student occasionally refuses or fails to comply with teacher requests and fails to follow class rules on procedure and policy. He/she may exhibit unacceptable or rude interpersonal behavior. The “D” student accumulates many tardies during the grading period.
    5. The “F” student persistently disrupts the class learning environment. The “F” student habitually fails to follow class procedures and policies, often disrupts those around him/her and fails to respect individual rights and property or school responsibilities. The “F” student is chronically tardy to class. 

District Policy on Use of Students in Photos and Video

  • Photos and video footage of students add significantly to the communication value of district and school publications, television productions, and websites. It is the district's desire to share the achievements and recognition earned by students with the broader community. This effort can be aided by the use of photos or video footage showing students involved in the classroom and school-related activities.

    Photos & Video

    Unless notified in writing of an objection by a parent, legal guardian, or student of age 18, photographs and video footage of students and/or names may be posted in district-produced materials including printed publications, television productions, and websites.

    If parents do not wish photographs or videos of their students to be used in these materials, they should complete a Photo/Video Opt-Out form available at school offices or via the link below. Please be aware that opt-out requests are valid for the current school year and must be renewed at the start of the next school year.
    If an opt-out form is filed, district and school staff members will ALSO request news media not interview your student or film/photograph your student. While local news media typically honor such requests, the district does not have legal authority to prevent your student from talking with media or restricting who media outlets film or photograph. You are encouraged to have a discussion with your student about your wishes should members of the news media request to interview them. 
    If photos or videos of students or staff are going to be created, maintained or displayed by a third party where the district or school will not have direct control of the materials, then a written release form is required. Contact the Community Relations Office at (916) 979-8281 to discuss options. 

    Photos & Video - Special Education Students and Homeless Students

    School and district staff will always seek parent/guardian permission before using a photo that identifies a student receiving special education or homeless services. Permission forms for these situations can also be obtained from school offices or via the link below.

    Please contact your school office or the Community Relations Office at (916) 979-8281 if you have any questions about this policy.
