Parent Visitations

  • On occasion a parent may feel the need to visit their child's class(es). Please be advised that Carnegie's parent visitation policy requires the parent to request a visit 24 hours in advance. Once the teacher(s) have been advised of your visit, you will receive a phone call confirming your appointment. Parents should check in at the front office and have a short orientation with one of the administration (going over the rules about classroom expectations). At the conclusion of your visit, please check out at the front office and, at the parent's request, you may desire to debrief with one of the administration. 
    Carnegie follows the SJUSD Board Policy #1250: 
    The Governing Board encourages parents/guardians and interested members of the community to visit the schools.  
    Parents/guardians and the community are invited to open house activities and other special events. The Superintendent or designee shall develop procedures which facilitate visits during regular school days when all visitors must first register at the school office.  
    The principal or designee may refuse to register any visitor whose acts or presence he/she judges would disrupt normal school operations, threaten the health and safety of students or staff, or cause property damage. (Penal Code 627.4)  
    To ensure minimum interruption of the regular classroom program, school visits shall be first arranged with the teacher and principal or designee. If a conference is desired, an appointment should be set with the teacher for a time before school, after school, or during the teacher's preparation period.  
    The Board recognizes that under California law, any person whose conduct materially disrupts classwork or extracurricular activities or cause a disturbance on school grounds may be guilty of a misdemeanor and subject to a fine, imprisonment, or both. (Education Code 44811, Penal Code 415.5) When such conduct occurs, the Superintendent or designee may take action leading to the imposition of these penalties.  
    Possession of unauthorized dangerous instruments, weapons or devices is prohibited on school premises, on any public right-of-way immediately adjacent to school property, or any other place where a teacher and student(s) are required to be in connection with assigned school activities.
