Application for Senior Privileges

Senior Privileges will be granted only to eligible Seniors, and reviewed every 5 weeks.

Eligibility is based on:

If any Senior receives an interim progress report showing borderline or failing grade (including BOCES) he/she may have his/her privileges revoked for the remainder of the marking period.

2. Behavior:

A senior may lose his/her privileges if he/she receives ALC, or out-of-school suspension. Revocation of privileges is immediate and lasts for the remainder of that 5-week period and the next 5-week period. Dates will coincide with the marking periods and interim progress reports as established in the school calendar.

3. Attendance:

A senior may have an immediate revocation of privileges upon 5 absences or tardies to a class or whole school day during any given marking period. The revocation will last for the same period of time described in a behavior revocation.
