Dear Parent/Guardian and Student:
Attached are the rules and regulations for the Frederick Douglass Academy. These rules and regulations have been prepared by the administration and approved by the Brockton School Committee.
Students and parents should acquaint themselves with the contents of this booklet. Every organization must have a set of guiding principles by which to operate. 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.
Both students and parents should 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.
It is our sincere hope that all parents will work with the school to prevent problems before they happen. We encourage 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. If you have any comments or questions, please feel free to contact the school.
Best wishes to both students and parents as we begin a new school year.
Michael P. Thomas
Superintendent of Schools
BROCKTON PUBLIC SCHOOLS
I have thoroughly read and understand the Frederick Douglass Academy Student/Parent Handbook. I am aware of the rights and responsibilities outlined therein for both parents and students.
