All Academy parents/guardians must read the Parent/Student Handbook and agree to support the rules and procedures therein. By signing this form, you are agreeing to read the Parent/Student Handbook in its entirety by the end of your child’s first week of classes at the Academy.
Summaries of some critical policies are listed below. Please verify that you have read these overviews by signing the bottom of the sheet.
After 30 days (or 15 days in a semester) absent from a class, credit will not be given for that class. Affected elementary or secondary students will be required to take summer school courses to fulfill credit requirements. Refer to the handbook for more details.
Classes missed due to unexcused early dismissals or unexcused late arrivals will receive a zero for a daily grade for those classes missed. A student will be considered absent when he/she has missed more than half of the class period. Please get pre-excused forms for doctor’s appointments or necessary early dismissals. Please send a note with your child stating the reason for an absence. Note the handbook for excused criteria.
Child Abuse Policy
By state law, Berean Academy faculty and staff members are considered “mandatory reporters” of suspected child abuse by the state and will abide by state guidelines in reporting suspected child abuse.
Communicable Disease Policy
Berean Academy desires to maintain a healthy school environment by instituting controls designed to prevent the spread of communicable diseases. While it is not our desire to discriminate against any student, the need for protection of the entire student body is crucial. Therefore, any student at Berean Academy or any student who seeks to enroll who is diagnosed to be carrying any communicable or potentially lethal disease may not be given the opportunity to remain or become a student. The concern is twofold: one that other students not be infected, and two, that the ill student not become infected with other diseases transmitted by fellow students or others within the school body.
Health & Accident Policy
Parents or guardians are responsible for all medical bills associated with accidents involving their children. Berean Academy does purchase secondary coverage for students involved in accidents occurring during school-related activities.
Receipt of Policy Statement and TACS Requirements
I have received a copy of the Policy Statement and a copy of "Summary of TACS Requirements for Childcare Centers" (located online in the Parent-Student Handbook).
