Dear Parent/Guardian and Student:
Attached are the rules and regulations for the Edison Academy. These rules and regulations have been prepared by school and district administrators and approved by the Brockton School Committee.
Students and parents should acquaint themselves with the contents of this booklet. Your knowledge of these codes and policies, as well as your involvement in their implementation, is essential. The rules and regulations set forth in this manual have been formulated to ensure a safe and orderly atmosphere in which meaningful education can take place. Additionally, these rules also provide students with a set of standards for individual behavior.
Edison Academy was designed to provide non-traditional students with a high-quality education and the tools and support they need to fulfill their potential. We encourage students and parents to maintain contact with teachers, guidance counselors and administrators on a regular basis in an effort to resolve minor issues before they become major problems. We stand ready to assist you.
Both students and parents should also be reminded of the school's use of surveillance cameras. School cameras are operated under the supervision and authority of the Brockton Police Department and access to any recordings is at the discretion of the BPD.
Best wishes to both students and parents as we begin a new school year.
Dr. James Cobbs Principal
