Education is a team effort, and students, parents, teachers, and other staff members working together can make a successful school year. Forestburg ISD’s Student Handbook is a general reference guide that is divided into two sections:
Section I: Parental Rights will help you respond to school-related issues regarding curriculum and the school environment.
Section II: Other Important Information for Parents and Students is organized alphabetically by topic. Where applicable, it is divided by age and/or grade level.
The Student Handbook is designed to align with board policy and the Student Code of Conduct, a board-adopted document intended to promote school safety and an atmosphere for learning. The Student Handbook is not meant to be a complete statement of all policies, procedures, or rules in any given circumstance. In case of conflicts between board policy (including the Student Code of Conduct) and any Student Handbook provision, the district will follow board policy and the Student Code of Conduct. Therefore, parents and students should become familiar with the Forestburg ISD’s Student Code of Conduct.
A hard copy of either the Student Code of Conduct or Student Handbook can be requested at Forestburg ISD’s main office. Please see Mrs. Raney or Mrs. Howell.
The district encourages parents to stay informed of proposed policy changes by attending board meetings and reviewing newsletter and other communications explaining changes in policy or other rules that affect Student Handbook provisions.
The district reserves the right to modify the Student Handbook at any time. Notice of revisions will be provided as is reasonably practical. Although the Student Handbook may refer to rights established through law or district policy, it does not create additional rights for parents and students. It does not, nor is it intended to, represent a contract between any parent or student and the district.
For questions about material in the handbook, please contact principal Karen Wiley.
