COMPULSORY EDUCATION INFORMATION LETTER

Because of DaVinci’s commitment to quality education, we are concerned when a child misses school for any reason. DaVinci Academy of Science and the Arts requires that all children achieve mastery in the basic skills identified for reading, language arts and mathematics. Absence from school interferes with the child’s opportunity to mas- ter these skills.

According to the Utah Compulsory Attendance Laws (53A-11-101-105) every school age child must be in school.The parents are responsible for their children’s regular school attendance. It is a misdemeanor if you fail to have your child in regular attendance.

Occasionally a student must be absent from school for reasons which are acceptable to the school as well as the court. District policy includes the following reasons as acceptable: illness, medical appointments, family emergencies, death of family member or close friend, or travel with prior approval of school principal. Please send us a writ- ten note every time your child is absent explaining the reason.The school and the court usually require a statement from a doctor regarding extended absences for illness. Appointments with doctors should be arranged after school hours whenever possible. If they must occur during school hours, the student is excused only for the time it takes for the appointment and traveling time.

Your cooperation is needed to help us give your student a quality education.
Sincerely,

Fred Donaldson,
Academic Director,
DaVinci Academy of Science and the Arts

DAVINCI SCHOOL CULTURE

DAVINCI HONOR CODE focuses on three pillars:

RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY, and INTEGRITY.

Students having RESPECT, RESPONSIBILITY, and INTEGRITY will demonstrate it through honesty, equality, accountability, excellence, self-control, courage, fairness, trust, loyalty, caring, humor, civility, justice, and tolerance. Honorable conduct is expected of all students at all times. Avoiding academic dishonesty is particularly important in the education process.

DaVinci believes that education fosters critical thinking, develops personal integrity and accountability, promotes self-esteem and respect for others, and stimulates stu- dents’ desire for lifelong learning. Learning and scholarship depend on an atmosphere of trust based on a code of academic integrity. Cheating, plagiarism, and dishonesty violate this code and defeat the purposes of learning.These practices place the value of grades over learning and run counter to DaVinci's philosophy and practice of pro- moting academic excellence.

Academic Integrity includes:

  • Honest submission of one’s own work, that is the result of one’s own efforts.
  • Holding others accountable for submitting their own work.
  • Valuing one’s education and learning above the value of grades
  • Promoting academic excellence within the classroom, with peers, and within oneself.
  • Abiding by a code of integrity when testing, studying, researching, writing and learning.

Violating the honor code is grounds for expulsion

ATTENDANCE EXPECTATION

Students are expected to attend school 90% of the time. In a 45 day quarter, a student can have no more than 4 absences in any given class. An absence is defined as not at- tending class at all or being more than 10 minutes late. Less than 90% attendance in a class may result in an NG (no grade) for the course.

Attendance: Students should be in class unless excused by parent verification for the following reasons:

  • Illness, hospitalization,or dental/medical appointments
  • Death and funeral services of family members or friends
  • Travel approved in advance by administration
  • Home or personal emergency limited to serious situations.
  • Observance of religious holidays

Absences due to medical appointments (with a doctor’s note), death of a family mem- ber, or a pre-approved family activity may be excused through the school administration

Students are expected to be on time and prepared for each class. Being in full dress code and having IDs and class materials are part of being on time for class.

Tardies and absences affect student learning.

We admonish parents to take care to support students in attending class, being on time and prepared. Parent involvement in this issue is crucial for student success.

Student Citizenship credit will be affected by absences and tardies. All absences and tardies should be remedied before the end of the term by attending Citizenship Class and paying fines.Tardies can often be settled by working with the teacher.

Attendance issues that are not remedied before the end of the term will become part of the student’s permanent transcript and additional Citizenship Classes and higher fines will be required to make up the lost credit.

Truancy (“Sluffing”): Truancy is deliberate absence from school without the knowledge and consent of a parent/guardian. One truancy will result in the loss of citizenship credit for the quarter.

Absences: Four or more absences during a term may result in a ‘U’.

Tardiness: Two tardies result in an ‘N’ and three tardies per quarter result in a ‘U’ and in the loss citizenship credit. Tardiness may be excused only by school staff members or due to a medical appointment.

Behavior: Two documented incidents of negative behavior (ISS) will result in the loss of citizenship credit. However, a teacher may give a “U” as the result of one serious inci- dent of negative behavior.

Students must have 40 Citizenship Credits in order to graduate at DaVinci. Students earn .25 credits per class per quarter including Advisory Classes. Students can only lose one credit per year, which means students can have a U in no more than 2 classes per year and still graduate. Citizenship School is DaVinci’s opportunity to make-up lost citi- zenship credit.

The school or teachers may refer students to Citizenship School due to in-school sus- pensions (ISS), excessive absences or tardies and other negative behavior. Students may refer themselves to Citizenship School in order to make up tardies and absences.

CITIZENSHIP MAKE-UP FEE SCHEDULE:

After Citizenship grades become part of a student’s permanent transcript, U’s must be made-up within Citizenship Class and for the following costs:

1- $10

2- $20

each U thereafter an additional $20 each

or 5 hours community service for each U

Students are strongly encouraged to make-up lost Citizenship credit before it becomes posted on student transcripts with posting to report cards.

DaVinci Academy of Science and the Arts and the Board of Directors recognize that standards of proper dress and grooming affect the behavior of students attending school and promotes the successful operation of our educational system. The general princi- ples of our dress code are that clothing must be 1) modest, and 2)non-disruptive. Please see the full dress code in the student handbook.

PARENT CONTRACT

Parents are to contact the school by 8:30 AM if their student is going to be absent. Students are only excused for medical appointments (with a doctor’s note) and for school activities except in rare cases (see Attendance Policy)

Parents should ensure that their student arrives to school on time. Students should be in class by 8:10 AM. Any student arriving more than 10 minutes late will be considered absent. Please pay special attention to the attendance policy in this packet or the student handbook.

We believe that parents play an integral role in their student’s education and for this reason, we expect parents to volunteer within the school or during school activities at least 15 hours per school year.These volunteer hours are tracked and recorded through our volunteer coordinator.

Parents should ensure their students are dressing appropriately for school and follow- ing the school dress code

We strongly encourage parents to attend Parent Teacher Conferences. These dates are available on the school calendar, the website and with school newsletters.

Parents and students are to read the Student Handbook, which details responsibilities of the members of our school community. Upon reading the handbook, please sign and return the notice that will be enclosed in the handbook.

With registration, all parents of DaVinci students have joined the PTSO (Parent Teacher Student Organization) and are deeply encouraged to participate in the shap- ing of our school activities and their student’s education. PTSO Meetings are held monthly in the Library. Board meetings are held on Wednesdays twice a month. Please contact the school or our website for specific dates and times.
