Mid Year and Final Exams
Mid-year examinations, when given, will count as one-tenth (1/10) of the final grade. If a class
gives a midyear exam, then the final exam will only cover the material since the midyear and will
count as one-tenth (1/10) of the final grade. In full year classes without a midyear exam, the final
exam will cover all the material in the class and will count as one-fifth (1/5) of the final grade.
Final examinations are given in all grades and in all academic subjects during the last four days of
the school year (except for English exams and certain components of World Language exams,
which are given earlier).
There will be a period of at least three (3) days of in-class review before a midyear or a final exam.
In the case of a midyear exam, no other department may do any assessment on the days of, or the
day before, the midyear exam. After a particular department has given a midyear exam, that
department will not do any assessment for the three (3) school days after the midyear exam.
No homework exceeding twenty (20) minutes is to be given the days of, or the day before, a
midyear exam. Homework exceeding twenty (20) minutes may be assigned only if it directly
applies to aiding in studying for a midyear exam. If the assignment does not pertain to a midyear
exam and is expected to take more than twenty (20) minutes, the assignment must be given in class
in order for the students to start it. The assignment should take no more than twenty (20) minutes
to complete outside of class.
Math/Science Mid-Term Exams - Week of January 20, 2014
Testing and Assessment Guidelines
Math/Science midyear review.
No assessment in any department.
Math mid-year exams; no assessment in any other department.

RESOURCES, RESPONSIBILITIES AND PROCEDURES
AB Express
Faculty and parents can have emergency messages delivered to students through AB
Express, which operates out of the school store. After the message is delivered to the school
store, student volunteers deliver the message to the plastic bins located in each classroom.
Messages are delivered at the end of each period and are available for the class coming in
the next period. Teachers need to check the bins and distribute messages to students at the
beginning of each period. If a student is absent, the message should be returned to the
school store.
ABPTSO
The PTSO communicates with parents through newsletters weekly and email messages.
School personnel who would like to use this method to pass along information to all high
school parents should send the information to Christina (Tina) Vanasse at the high school at
[email protected]
ABRHS Website – within each building the principal has the ultimate responsibility for web
publishing oversight. While general updates to department sites are fine, changes in content to
web pages must be approved through the Administration Office. (Changes in content sites
should be addressed to Susan Sousa, Content Coordinator [email protected] Please check
out our website at ab.mec.edu/abrhs.
Absence/ Teacher
All absences are to be recorded in Aesop, a service that streamlines the process of recording and
managing absences, as well as scheduling substitutes. You will receive a Welcome Letter from
the Central Office, which will contain your login ID and PIN number. The Aesop service will
be available to you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and can be accessed via internet and phone.
1. You can interact with Aesop on the internet at http://www.aesopeducation.com. Here, you
will be able to enter absences, check your absence schedule, update personal information, and
access other features as described in the employee user guides.
2. You can also call Aesop toll free at 1-800-942-3767. Simply follow the voice menu to enter and
manage absences and access other features. We recommend that you call in to check the
computer recording of your name and title. To do this, press Option 5 and follow the prompts.
When entering an absence, please wait until you receive a confirmation number before you
terminate the phone call or close your internet browser window. Your transaction is not
complete until you receive a confirmation number. Substitutes will be scheduled through the
Aesop system. You will be able to upload and write notes to your substitute through the
system. Additional training will be provided to you by the Central Office staff, and you can
view startup guides and training videos when you log into Aesop. Although we encourage and
14
appreciate good attendance, teachers should realize that the earlier they enter their absence into
Aesop the better chance there will be a substitute available in their subject area.
If you become sick during the school day, notify your Department Leader to arrange
coverage, if possible, for your classes. Please enter your absence into Aesop either by phone
or over the web. If you unable to do this please let Pat Haras know that you are leaving
early, so that she can take care of the entry for you.
Absence/student
Parents are to notify the Main Office of all student absences. If a parent notification is not
received, the absence will be recorded as unexcused. An unexcused absence will be defined
as truancy. In the event that a student later provides acceptable documentation excusing the
absence, it should be delivered to his/her Dean for individual consideration. For each
unexcused absence, students will receive a three-point deduction from the term grade of the
class in which they were truant.
Academic Integrity
Students are expected to perform and pass in their own work. Examples of violations of
academic integrity are listed in the Student Handbook. If it is determined that the student
has violated the expectations for academic integrity, the student will receive a zero on the
paper, project, or test in question and the student's parents, the school administration,
counselor and the National Honor Society advisor will be informed. Please find the
electronic form on Power Teacher, and see Laura Hirshfield or Diane Cileno with any
questions.
Academic Support Center
The Academic Support Center, located in Room 242S, provides support for students who
need assistance with study skills, test taking strategies, and homework or other class
assignments. The program is staffed by teachers and Peer Tutors who have a wide range of
skills and experience. Assistance is offered in almost every subject throughout the school
day. Students can come in for help once, twice, or sign up for a longer period of time,
depending upon their needs. Daisy Wiggins is the coordinator of the Academic Support
Center. Teachers are encouraged to bring these services to the attention of students who
might benefit from them. Teachers are welcome to accompany students to the center to
introduce them to the staff. Students can commit to regular support or can use the ASC
services as needed.
Library Access from Directed Study
Due to space constraints, limited computers and textbooks, only content area teachers can
sign a pass for students to come to the library during directed study. When asking for a
pass students should keep in mind the following guidelines:
15
• The reason for your visit may not be to use textbooks, computers or work on daily
homework;
• You are encouraged to request a pass to use print resources or computers related to a
research project that necessitates use of library materials, or to request assistance from
the librarian;
• Please present your pass to one of the library staff upon arrival in the library.
Students who do not have access to a computer at home should speak with the librarian or
their counselor to receive an exemption from these guidelines. Study hall teachers are not
allowed to write a pass for students to the library.
ABRHS Administrator/Student Caseloads 2013-2014
The Deans of Students (“Deans”) are assigned students based on counselor caseload. Each Dean
is paired with an Associate Principal for support. The assignments are as follows:
Steve Martin/Beth Baker: Students in the caseloads of Hitzrot, Gabel, Clinton, Dandridge and
Chicko.
Maurin O’Grady/Larry Dorey: Students in the caseloads of Thomas, Gavett, Chu, Root and

Advisories
Students will each be assigned to an advisory group, led by a staff member of the school.
Advisories will meet every Tuesday from 9:05 to 9:20. Students are expected to attend
all advisory meetings.
Alcohol and Illegal Drugs
While on school property, including school buses, and while at a school-sponsored event,
students shall not, regardless of quantity, use or consume, possess, buy, sell, be under the
influence of*, or give away any beverage containing alcohol, marijuana, steroids,
16
prescription medication or any controlled substance as defined under Mass General Laws,
Ch. 94C, or inhale the vapors of any intoxicating substance such as glue, nitrous oxide and
the like, sometimes referred to as �huffing’. Possession of drug paraphernalia is prohibited.
If a teacher has a concern about a student, he/she should notify the administrative office
(x3405) as soon as possible. (See also, Under the Influence of…)
Arrival Time/ Teachers
Teachers are expected at school by 7:10 AM. They are to be in their classrooms or at their
duty locations by 7:15AM. They should be in the classroom corridors at 7:20 AM to help
students into class.
Attendance/Student
In order to enforce the existing attendance policies, it is imperative that each teacher takes
accurate attendance every day in every class. This information provides the basis for the
official attendance record for the student as well as for the school and the state.
A Daily Attendance Sheet, showing all students who were absent or late by period, is
available in the Faculty Dining Room, located in room 123N, by 3:30 P.M.
Audiovisual/Media Equipment
All classrooms are equipped with multimedia equipment including a ceiling-mounted LCD
projector, DVD/VHS/Tuner Deck, sound amplification system (either desktop or in-ceiling
speakers) and an overhead projector. A basic operation guide for this equipment is posted in
each room and is available under the ‚Staff Resources>Other Staff Resources‛ tab on the
ABRHS website. Additional equipment is available from the AV Department upon request. In
addition to providing all maintenance for Classroom multimedia systems, the AV department
offers services to the faculty including: training, color printing, laminating, AV duplication and
conversion, and scanning.
Auditing Courses
Any student requesting to audit a course during the school year must be aware of the
following criteria:
1. In addition to the course to be audited, the student must be scheduled for a minimum of
five courses that meet on a daily basis.
2. The student must complete the "Audit Request Form" that can be obtained from his/her
counselor. The completed form must be returned within the first two weeks of the course to
Larry Dorey, the Associate Principal in charge of scheduling.
3. If the audit request is approved, the student must adhere to the standards of the course.
Failure to comply with the attendance, academic, and behavioral expectations of the
classroom instructor will result in the student's withdrawal from the course with a "W".
Please remember that a student receives no grade and no credits for an audited course.

Bullying
The Acton and Acton-Boxborough Schools are committed to providing all students with a safe
learning environment that is free from bullying and cyber-bullying. This commitment is an
integral part of the District’s comprehensive efforts to promote learning, and to prevent and
eliminate all forms of bullying and other harmful and disruptive behavior that can impede the
learning process.
Bullying is defined in M.G.L. c. 71 s. 370 as the repeated use by one or more students of a
written, verbal, or electronic expression or a physical act or gesture or any combination thereof,
directed at a target that:
i. causes physical or emotional harm to the target or damage to the target’s property;
ii. places the target in reasonable fear of harm to himself or herself or of damage to his
or her property;
iii. creates a hostile environment at school for the target;
iv. infringes on the rights of the target at school; or
v. materially and substantially disrupts the education process or the orderly operation of
the school.
Bullying can be difficult to identify based on a single incident witnessed in a classroom or
hallway. Teachers should consult the student’s Counselor, Dean of Students or Associate
Principal to file a report or determine next steps.
Cameras (Concealed)
No concealed cameras (as currently available on cell phones and other PDA tools) are to be used
without the express permission of the person whose picture is being taken. They are not to be
used in any area where people have a reasonable expectation of privacy.
Cell Phones, Electronic Devices
Cell Phones, Electronic Devices
The purpose of the school day is to ensure that students have access to the teaching, learning
experiences and knowledge that will prepare them for their life as responsible and respectful
adults in college, the workplace and in their communities. In order to maintain the primacy of
this academic experience, student cell phones and other personally owned devices used for
communication and entertainment are not to be used in any class or study hall without the prior
permission of the teacher. This permission should be sought for each specific occasion on
which the student wishes to use their device.
In addition, the video, camera and real-time text capabilities of cell phones present the difficult
challenge of ensuring continued high standards of Academic Integrity (see page 46) and
community expectations for privacy. In order to protect students from the appearance or
allegations of AI violations, all cell phones and personally owned devices used for
18
communication and entertainment should be stored in the student locker or backpack – not
visible or audible in the classroom setting. Such devices are not to be used in any area where
people have a reasonable expectation of privacy.
Should a student find it difficult to follow these guidelines, they may be asked to give their
phone to a teacher or other staff member. On the first occasion, the cell phone may be taken
until the end of the school day, on second and subsequent occasions; the issue may be referred
to an administrator for further consequences. In addition, teachers are allowed to ask students
to turn their phones off or to gather cell phones in a central location during periods when tests
and other assessments are given.
Personally-owned Equipment
Personally-owned computer equipment, smartphones or peripherals may be used in common
areas of the school, including student centers, cafeteria and the library provided their use does
not distract the student or others from academic study. Students may not use personally owned
equipment, smartphones or peripherals in academic classrooms without the specific permission
of the teacher. At this time students are unable to access the school’s wireless network. Students
bear responsibility for any damage, theft or loss of personal equipment brought into school.
Cheer Fund
The Cheer Fund, supported by staff contributions, exists to coordinate school recognition of
and response to events in the lives of the staff. Information about births, illnesses, deaths,
etc. should be passed on to Kappy Kelly – located in the counseling center or by email at:
[email protected]
Classroom Discipline Issues
In order to maintain a positive learning environment, teachers are encouraged to follow the
steps below in dealing with discipline issues in the classroom.
1. Speak to the student. Be clear about your behavioral expectations.
2. Notify parents and counselor if discipline issues continue.
3. Request that the counselor or dean of students set up a conference with parents, student,
counselor and dean of students.
4. Report further discipline issues to the Associate Principal. Call or send interim report to
keep parents informed that issues continue.
The student may be removed from the class for a period of time and/ or may be assigned inschool suspension. Class work should be delivered to the Dean of Students.
5. Report further discipline issues to the Dean of Students and/or Associate Principal. The
student may be assigned out-of-school suspension. At this point parents are notified and
another conference is scheduled.
6. Report further discipline issues to the Associate Principal. The student may be removed
from the course and sent to assigned study for that period for the rest of the year, receiving
a ‚W‛ for the course and earning no credits.
19
Students asked to leave your classroom due to behavioral concerns should be sent directly to
the Admin Office. Please notify the Admin Office (ext. 3405) that you are sending the student
to the office. Follow up communication should be made with the student's Dean and Associate
Principal.

Course Requirements
All ABRHS students must meet the following minimum requirements to graduate and
receive an Acton-Boxborough Regional High School diploma:
All graduating students must earn 100 credits in order to receive a diploma,
Passing grades in:
в—Џ Four years of English
в—Џ Three years of social studies (one of which must be U.S. History)

в—Џ Arts Requirements: Starting with the Class of 2016 students will be required to earn 2.5
credits from Performing Arts, Visual Arts, Communication or Industrial Technology.
п‚· Satisfactory completion of the Massachusetts Comprehensive
Assessment System tests (MCAS).
20
ABRHS requires all students to spend 990 hours per year in academic study. This time may
include scheduled classes, directed studies and activities directly related to each student’s
course of studies. Teachers need not be present during all 990 hours; however, all activities
should carry the same academic rigor as that of classroom activities. Teachers make
themselves available at published times to provide guidance in all areas of study. Students
who are progressing toward graduation requirements at a consistent pace will fulfill their
990 requirements through required classes, electives, and associated activities. Directed
studies may supplement any student’s structured learning plan. Required learning
activities include Science, English, Social Studies and World Language portfolios associated
with full year and some semester courses in these departments. Additional activities by
choice are listed following the department requirements.
Schedule Changes/ Student
Students should follow the following procedures when changing classes during the school
year:
The teacher(s), parents and counselor are consulted.
Using the course change form available in the Counseling Center, students obtain written
approval for the change(s) from each of the above people.
The final form is presented for approval to Larry Dorey, the Associate Principal in charge of
schedule changes. Students should realize that there are acceptable and unacceptable
reasons for course changes. The final decision will be made by the Associate Principal and
will depend on the availability of class offerings and class size. Schedule changes will be
made in a manner that best balances class size and individual teaching loads. Students
requesting a course change should note that additional modifications in their schedule may
be made by the Associate Principal in order to accommodate their course change.
The student stays in the original class until the change has been completed. Student
schedules can be accessed through the parent portal of PowerSchool with the appropriate
password. The student may also check the new schedule at the Counseling Office.
Change request - The deadline to change a course level or withdraw from a course without
permanent record (transcript) implications will be 5 days prior to the close of the first
semester for full year courses and 5 days prior to the close of the first marking period
(quarter) of a semester course. See web site for calendar
http://ab.mec.edu/abrhs/about/schoolcalendar.shtml
Permanent Record Implications – Any student who changes a course or course level after
the established deadline should note that the withdrawn course will be reflected on his/her
report card and permanent record as a ‚W‛. In the case of a level change within the same
21
subject, a ‚W‛ will be reflected on the report card and permanent record indicating that the
student was enrolled in a previous course level.
No changes will be processed during the time period between 5 days prior to the close of
the term and one week after the close of the term.
7. Students who change levels within 3 days of the due date for quarter 2 interims will have
their grades raised or lowered by 7 points to conform to the weighted GPA chart for the
histogram. If the change is made in the middle of a term, each test grade during this term,
but prior to the change, will be affected in this way. If the change is made at the end of a
term, this term grade will be affected in this way. In either case, all term grades prior to the
change in level are to reflect the 7-point difference. Hence, the end of the year grade reflects
the final.
Example:
A student changing from AE to CP Level in the middle of term #2
Term #1 AE Level 70 + 7
Term #2 Raise each test given at AE Level by 7 points
AE/CP average = 80
Term#3 CP level = 90
Term #4 CP Level 90
Final Exam 87
Year grade calculations (77 + 80 + 90 + 90 + 87) /5 = 85
8. Students who change to a lower level after the first semester schedule deadline will not
have their grades raised. However, students who change to a higher level after this date,
will have their grades lowered by seven (7) points.
9. The receiving teacher is responsible for recording the student’s grades and computing the
yearly grade.
Credit Reduction
Each student shall be granted an opportunity to earn full credit for any course as long as
his/her absences (excused or unexcused) do not exceed 20 days per full year course or 10
days per semester course.
п‚·
п‚·
On the 21st absence from a full year class, the student is no longer eligible to earn
five credits for that class.
On the 11th absence from a semester class the student is no longer eligible to earn 2.5
credits for that class.
22
п‚·
п‚·
On the 6th absence from a semester class meeting alternate days the student is no
longer eligible to earn 1.25 credits for that class*
In each of the above cases, the student is still eligible to earn a grade and maintain
the ability to move on in a sequential class if his/her average permits. A passing
grade in a required class will still count towards the student's graduation
requirement.
Withdrawal from Class
п‚· On the 26th absence from a full year class, the student will be withdrawn from the
class with no eligibility to attend summer school. The student will be enrolled in a
supervised study during that class time unless a suitable replacement class is
scheduled.
п‚·
п‚·
п‚·
п‚·
On the 13th absence from a semester class, the student will be withdrawn from the
class with no eligibility to attend summer school. The student will be enrolled in a
supervised study during that class time unless a suitable replacement class is
scheduled.
On the 8th absence from a semester class meeting alternate days, the student will be
withdrawn from the class with no eligibility to attend summer school. The student
will be enrolled in a supervised study during that class time unless a suitable
replacement class is scheduled.
All absences, excused or unexcused will be counted towards the student's
attendance requirements.
The Attendance Advisory Board consisting of faculty and administration will be
available to review individual cases in light of extenuating circumstances
Detention
Teachers may require students to stay after school or arrive early to school to deal with
disciplinary issues. These include, but are not limited to, disruptive behavior, lack of
preparation, truancy and tardiness to class. Students will be given a one-day notice in order
to make necessary transportation or other arrangements. Students have to report to
detention and are to be prompt and responsive to the teacher. Students who fail to respond
to a teacher's detention may be referred to their dean for further disciplinary action. After
school supervision is available for detention in the Administration Office and teachers
should let one of the Dean of Students (Maurin O’Grady or Steve Martin) know when to
expect a student.
Dismissals
If a student needs to be released early, he/she must bring a note signed by a parents or legal
guardian. The student needs to take the note to the Main Office prior to third period. The
student will be dismissed without a note from home only in the case of an emergency.
23
Students returning to school must check in at the Main Office when they arrive. Classes
missed due to a student’s failure to comply with the dismissal procedures will be
considered truancies. Notes from parents dismissing their child after the absence has
occurred will not be accepted.
Students leaving campus with privileges are expected to return to class on time. In the
event that a student is unable to return to a scheduled class, his/her parent must contact the
Main Office on that day to excuse the absence.
Dress Code/Students
From the Student Handbook
The Fourteenth Amendment protects your right to choose hair length, clothing, and other
aspects of your appearance. The school cannot interfere with this right by punishing you or
restricting you from any school activities because of your appearance unless there is an
overriding, legitimate school purpose, which the school can show to be more important
than this right. Such legitimate school purposes include the concern that your appearance
poses a genuine threat to health or safety (for example, a bulky coat in gym or not wearing
shoes) or damages school property (for instance, metal cleats or shoes). Another legitimate
purpose is to prevent disruption. Disruptive clothing is considered clothing upon which
any of the following is displayed: obscenities, words or symbols that will knowingly incite
others, or words or symbols that put down (defame) the beliefs or heritage of others. Some
school events and individual teachers may have additional rules regarding dress. (Source:
Check It Out: A Guide to Rights & Responsibilities for Massachusetts Students; Student
Advisory Council of the Massachusetts Department of Education, 1992).
Educational Assessment / Student's Current Functioning
This form is issued through the Special Education Department and is to be completed prior

Final Exams
Final examinations are given in all grades and in all academic subjects during the last four
days of the school year (except for English exams and certain components of World
Language exams, which are given earlier).
In order to be eligible to take the final, students must return all athletic team uniforms,
equipment, library books, etc. and take care of all financial obligations including those for
lost textbooks and classroom materials and damage to or breakage of school property. All
fines must be paid in full (parking, etc.) prior to taking final exams.
Seniors with an A- or better average (i.e. a 90 or higher) for the year will be exempt from
taking the final examination in that subject. Any student enrolled in a course designated AP
and who takes the AP exam will be exempt from the final examination in that course. Any
student in a non-leveled elective course, who takes the AP exam, will be exempted from the
final examination. Exceptions to this rule will be students enrolled in AP English, Spanish,
French, Economics or Political Science, who will be exempt only if their year’s average is 80
or better at the end of the third quarter.
Final Examinations/ Testing and Major Assignments
Teachers may not schedule tests or have major assignments/papers due three days prior to
the beginning of final exams. In English this means three days before the first day of
English final exams, for other courses this three-day limitation refers to the beginning of the
established exam period. Teachers will spend the three days prior to the final exams
reviewing the content on the upcoming exam with their classes.

Grading and Level Changes
Students who change levels during the first semester of the school year will have their
grades raised or lowered by 7 points to conform to the weighted GPA chart for the
histogram.
If the change is made in the middle of a term, each test grade during this term, but prior to
the change, will be affected in this way. If the change is made at the end of a term, this term
grade will be affected in this way. In either case, all term grades prior to the change in level
are to reflect the 7-point difference. Hence, the end of the year grade reflects the final level.
The receiving teacher is responsible for recording the student's grades and computing the
yearly grade.
Students who change levels after the first semester will not have their grades raised or
lowered.
Example:
A student changing from AE to CP Level in the middle of term #2
Term #1 AE Level 70 + 7
Term #2 Raise each test given at AE Level by 7 points
AE/CP average = 80
Term#3 CP level = 90
Term #4 CP Level 90
Final Exam 87
Year grade calculations (77 + 80 + 90 + 90 + 87) 15 = 85
Grading Practices
Teachers are expected to have grading practices defined in writing. These should be
distributed to students at the beginning of each year, or at the beginning of each new
course. This information should include grading and classroom expectations. Students
who join a class late are expected to seek out this information on their own. Test results,
projects and papers will be returned to the student within a reasonable amount of time.
Hall Pass, ABRHS
If you have detained a student, making him/her late for the next class, please give the
student a pass. Passes should be written in ink on the standard form. Passes are not
required to enter or travel to the library, counseling center, or commons.
PLEASE NOTE: If a student arrives late to your class because he or she is late to school, he
or she should not be admitted without a tardy pass from the main office. In all other cases,
28
if a student arrives late and without a pass, please Do Not Send the Student Back into the
Halls for a Pass. See Discipline Section for alternatives.
Identification Cards
Staff and faculty are requested to wear ABRHS picture identification cards while on school
grounds. Please see Ru Sweeney [email protected] (in the Faculty Support Center)
if you need an identification card.
Information sharing, faculty, parents and students
Faculty members who want to convey information to other staff members, students and/or
parents have the following vehicles available to them:
• Morning announcements- These forms are available on the Staff Resources Tab on the
homepage of the ABRHS website– you may also pick one up in the Administrative Office.
Once completed these forms must be signed by an adult advisor, not students. Please put
it into Maurin O’Grady’s box for approval the afternoon before or submit by email to
[email protected]
• PTSO newsletter and parent weekly email messages. Information should be submitted by
email to Tina Vanasse – [email protected]
• Bulletin boards are also located throughout the academic wings. All information for
posting must be approved and initialed in advance by a dean of students or associate
principal.
• The school’s web site is also used to disseminate information. All information for the web
site must go through Susan Sousa in the Administration Office (147S).
Interim Reports
Interim reports provide a formal notification to students and parents of any teacher
concerns. By the midpoint of each term teachers should complete interim reports for
students who are failing a course, for students who have an average below 70 in a
continuing course, for students who have an excessive number of absences or tardies, and
for any other students not making satisfactory progress.
Mid-term dates are: October 8, December 11, February 26 and May 7 for grades 9 -11.
Fourth term interim reports for seniors should be issued by April 30.
Given that interim reports are intended to provide a warning, allowing students and
parents to address the issue noted, they should not to be sent out at the end of the term
when it is too late for corrective action. If a problem occurs late in the term the teacher
should call parents directly.
Lesson Plans and Seating Charts
Teachers are expected to have lesson plans available for substitute teachers. In the event of
absence, seating charts and plans should be available as well as up to date class lists. Please
be sure that the Main Office and the Department Leader know where these are kept.
29
Library
The Acton-Boxborough Regional High School library exists to support students and teachers in
their learning and teaching, to create lifelong learners by encouraging critical thinking, curiosity
and exploration, and to foster a love of reading in all formats.
This mission is accomplished by:
III. Providing intellectual and physical access to information resources in all formats;
IV. Providing instruction to foster competence in finding and using information and ideas;
V. Collaborating with other educators to develop their own and students’ information
skills in preparation for college and career pursuits;
VI. Creating a welcoming and inclusive atmosphere that supports academic inquiry
Students choose to come to the library to seek assistance, research, study or read. The library is
maintained as a quiet study area at all times, including before and after school, and should be
used to:
в—Џ Borrow Materials
в—Џ Read
в—Џ Research and Study
в—Џ Request materials from the library or other locations
в—Џ Seek assistance for a research project
в—Џ Access a computer for the purposes of research and/or study
Student Circulation Policy
A detailed explanation of the student circulation policy can be found on the library website.
Hours:
Monday through Thursday
7:00AM to 5:00 PM
Friday
7:00AM to 2:30 PM
The library will be closed on the following dates for staff professional development:
October 24, February 24, April 21
Access during Periods Four through Seven (4-7):
In order to reduce the noise and disruption of students continually entering and exiting the
library during the lunch periods, students who need to use the library during this time must
30
enter within the first 10 minutes of the period and are required to notify the supervising teacher
should they need to leave temporarily. Although these students may leave when they have
finished their work, no additional students will be admitted until the beginning of the next
period.
Students who arrive after the 10 minute deadline because of a meeting with a teacher, guidance
counselor or associate principal will be admitted with a signed pass. In addition, students who
do not have other free periods during the day may register with the supervising teacher by
providing a copy of their class schedule. These students will be permitted to enter after the 10
minutes.
Access from Directed Study
Due to space constraints, limited computers and textbooks, only content area teachers can sign a
pass for students to come to the library during directed study. When asking for a pass, students
should keep in mind the following guidelines:
п‚· The reason for your visit may not be to use textbooks, computers or work on daily
homework;
п‚· You are encouraged to request a pass to use print resources or computers related to a
research project that necessitates use of library materials, or to request assistance from
the librarian;
п‚· Please present your pass to one of the library staff upon arrival in the library.
Students who do not have access to a computer at home should speak with the librarian or their
counselor to receive an exemption from these guidelines. Study hall teachers are not allowed to
write a pass for students to the library.
Technology Access and Use
The library has twenty-seven desktop computers, three printers, one color printer, and a copy
machine and document scanner for student use. When classes are not scheduled, the library
computer lab directly adjacent is open for student use as well. There is no charge for printing in
black and white or for making copies when documents are course related. There is a small
charge for the color printer to offset cost of ink.
The district computers and network are provided as educational tools for students, staff and the
community. Class and course work related use of this equipment takes priority and all non
educational use, including exploring web resources of personal interest is dependent on
availability of computers, network capacity and library staff approval. Games are not allowed
on library computers.
Library Conference Rooms
To encourage quiet study, students are to use alternative locations when working or meeting in
groups larger than five.
31
There are two conference rooms located in the library which are generally off limits to student
groups. However, students who wish to study for common assessments in groups larger than
five may request to use a conference room provided it is not scheduled for use by a faculty or
administrative group.
Behavioral Guidelines
The library is a community learning space and must serve multiple purposes. In accordance
with the ABRHS General Behavioral Expectations, all students are expected to conduct
themselves with consideration and thoughtfulness for the rights of others and will be treated
with dignity and respect by library staff. Students who consistently demonstrate disregard for
the library community may have their library privileges revoked for a period of time.
Students are not allowed to talk on their cell phones in the library. However, personally owned
devices used for communication (including but not limited to cell phones and portable music
devices) are permitted providing they do not distract other patrons. Since there is no game
playing of any kind allowed in the library, please note that personally owed devices, when used
for entertainment, should be used in the cafeteria and commons.
In accordance with school policy, food and drink are only allowed in the cafeteria.
Lost and Found
Books and personal items that are left around the building are stored in a large box located at
the entrance to the Student Center South. Wallets, jewelry and other items of value are kept in
the safe in the Administrative Office. If you believe that an item may have been stolen, report
this to the administration and complete a Theft Report Form.
Medication Procedures
Non-prescription medicines may not be brought to school or used by any student on school
premises. Occasionally a student may require acetaminophen and/or ibuprophen. These over
the counter medications will be given to students only when a parent has completed the on-line
emergency information giving permission (see PowerSchool Access).
Whenever possible, prescription medicines should be administered at home. When a physician
specifies that medicine must be administered during the school day, the guidelines for
supervision of medication are:
1. All medicine must be brought to the Health Office by a parent or designated adult.
2. Medications that need to be administered daily or emergency medications need to provide
the following information:
• the prescription label and number
• the name of the drug
• directions for administration including times of administration and dosage
• the patient’s full name
**written authorization from a physician
3. Prescription medications that need to be administered for a limited/short duration need to
include the following information:
32
• the prescription label and number
• the name of the drug
• directions for administration including times of administration and dosage
• the patient’s full name
**note from parent giving permission for the school nurse to administer medication and
authorization from a physician. The note must include start date.
Lock Down Procedures:
In cases where an emergency situation or security issue requires that students be secured in
classrooms or other supervised areas, students and faculty will be notified to clear the halls
immediately. In the event that you are in a hallway, you are to go to the nearest classroom
or secure area. If you are in your classroom please instruct students in the hall to enter your
classroom. Lock the classroom door, move away from doors and windows, turn off your
light and wait for additional information.
MCAS
Starting with the Class of 2003, all students must take and pass the Massachusetts
Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) tests in order to qualify for a high school
diploma. These tests are given at the high school beginning in the spring of sophomore
year.
The schedule for Spring 2013-2014 testing is on the ABRHS calendar. Be sure to check this
and modify curriculum and lesson plans as necessary. Please note that retests are scheduled
in November and March.
Academic expectations:
Tests, Quizzes and Homework Expectations:
No tests or quizzes are to be scheduled for sophomores during the Spring MCAS
testing.
During this time if you have 10th grade classes it is all right to assign regular
homework. Keep it light, they may be pretty tired.
Mixed Classes:
If you have mixed classes with fewer than five (5) sophomores, you may continue
your regular lessons. However, please be prepared to offer sophomores who have
missed classes due to testing additional assistance after school and during
preparation time. Be sure that these students know when you are available. Please
post homework assignments and other information that may be helpful to them.
Remember that it is not their choice to miss your class.
If you have mixed classes with five (5) or more sophomores please use the testing
periods for enrichment activities.

Mailboxes
Faculty mailboxes are located in the Faculty Dining Room, Room 123N. Mailboxes should
be checked daily for messages or other mail.
Make-Up Work
When students miss a class, or an entire school day for an authorized reason (e.g.
sickness, dismissal, death in the family, etc), they are allowed to make up the work
missed. Students, not teacher, are responsible for making sure that they make up all the
work missed, including tests and quizzes. All tests and quizzes should be made up after
school.
The amount of time students are given to make up missed work and assessments is
proportionate to how much time is missed. If students miss between 1-2 days, they have
that number of days to make up the work. If students miss more than 5 days, it will be
necessary for the student to meet with each teacher to discuss how long they will have
to make up the work. Students should feel free to meet with a counselor if they are
having difficulty making up the work.
Out of school Suspension and Student Responsibility
Under the Student Handbook regulations, students suspended from school are
provided the same make-up rights and responsibilities as any student absent from
school. However, while suspended from school, students are expected to make every
effort to stay current with their course work. At a minimum, students are expected to
email their teachers on the day of the suspension. Students are not required to explain
why they will be out of school, but should notify the teacher of the dates they will be
absent. Students may request at that time academic assignments that will assist them in
staying current in their coursework.
In addition to emailing teachers through their ABSchools account, it is strongly
recommended that students suspended from school take the following actions:
Take all text books and academic materials with them when they leave the
building.
Communicate with their school counselor and/or special educator.
Access all on-line teaching material available through their classes.
When appropriate, contact their classmates regarding academic information
covered in class.
Continue to work on the long range projects that have been assigned, and
assume that deadlines for any group projects will not be adjusted.
34
Students suspended from school are allowed to make up any work they have missed.
However, the student, not the teacher, is responsible for making sure that all work is
made up in a timely fashion. All tests and quizzes should be made up after school.
This Week at AB
This Week at AB is published weekly electronically and will come to you through your
ABschools account. This memo includes weekly events, announcements and other
information of interest to the faculty and staff. Information to be shared should be
submitted to Deb Trentsch in the Main Office by Wednesday afternoon – you can reach Deb
by email at [email protected] or by phone at ext. 3403. Faculty are expected to both
read this weekly memo and be responsible for knowing any important dates, procedures,
schedules, and/or other information provided in the memo.
Monitors
Campus monitors, working in the parking lots and within the high school building, assist
with student supervision, safety and campus security. Ru Sweeney is our lead campus
monitor. Monitors issue parking tickets, smoking fines and share any behavior incidents
with one of the Dean of Students and the Associate Principals. Student safety is their top
priority.
Parking /faculty
Please register your car with Nancy Harter Whitaker in the campus monitor room (102N).
You will be given a parking tag that should hang on your rear view mirror. This tag helps
us to identify yours as a staff car. Without this information, it is difficult for us to identify
cars that are inappropriately parked on campus. You will be assigned a numbered parking
space.
Religious Holidays
As stated in the ABRSD School Committee Policy, we recognize that our school community
is comprised of individuals with diverse religious, ethnic, cultural, and social backgrounds.
It is our intent to be respectful of the beliefs and practices of all our school community.
Consistent with this, the high school accommodates individual differences in religious
observances. Thus, if a student is affected by a religious holiday that is not observed with a
school wide closing, that student will be allowed to have extra time to complete
assignments and assessments that conflict with their holiday observance even in the event
that the student attends classes on that day. Assignments and tests should be made up
according to the current absence policy.
Homework should not be due, nor tests scheduled, on the day following a religious holiday
observed by a school wide closing or a major religious holiday that occurs over the
weekend
35
Schedule Changes/ Student
Students should follow the following procedures when changing classes during the school
year:
1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.
The teacher(s), parents and counselor are consulted.
Using the course change form available in the Counseling Center, students obtain
written approval for the change(s) from each of the above people.
The final form is presented for approval to Larry Dorey, the Associate Principal in
charge of schedule changes.
The student stays in the original class until the change has been completed. A new
schedule will be provided to the student to confirm completion of the change(s). The
student must check for the new schedule at the Counseling Center.
Students should realize that there are acceptable and unacceptable reasons for course
changes. The final decision on the change will be made by the Associate Principal in
charge of scheduling and will depend on the availability of class offerings and class
size.
As of the mid-point of the first term (October 8) any change requests other than level
changes or changes necessitated by special circumstances in a semester or year course
will be denied. If a student wishes to appeal, he/she will need to go through counselor,
Chairperson of Counseling, Department Leader, Principal. Strict attention will be paid
to the reason for the request as well as the impact it has on other classes.
No changes will be processed during the time period between two weeks prior to the
close of the term and one week after the close of the term.
Grading Ramifications - Any student who changes a course or course level after the
established deadline should note that the withdraw course will be reflected on his/her
report card and permanent record as a ‚W‛. In the case of a level change within the
same subject, a ‚W‛ will be reflected on the report card and permanent record
indicating that the student was enrolled in a previous course level.
School Store
The school store, managed by Deb Clough is located at the entrance to the school, is open
from 7:00 AM to 3:00 PM Monday through Friday. Student volunteers work in the store,
often as part of their community service. Students can purchase chemistry goggles, world
languages workbooks, English paperback books, film for art classes, pens, pencils, poster
board and general school supplies as well as an assortment of cold drinks and candy. The
store also has a line of clothing including sweatshirts, tee shirts, and baseball caps available
for purchase.
36
Student Government
Elections for student government positions (Class Leaders, Student Council and Student
Reps.) are held in the spring, except for the freshman class, which has fall elections.
Eligibility requirements and campaign guidelines are described in the Student Handbook.
Student Activity Advisors – finances
*All fundraising proposals must go through an approval process before the project begins.
Fundraising forms are available on line and completed forms should be returned Dr.
Campbell in the Administration Office.
*All money collected by groups must be kept in the safe at night. Advisors should not keep
money in their desks or mailboxes. Money can be given to the financial coordinator (Karen
Alterisio) (located in the Admin. office 147S) to be put in the safe.
*Cash and checks to go into an activity’s account must be counted and turned over to the
financial coordinator. A receipt will be issued for the reported amount, and the money will
be counted again by the financial coordinator who will issue an adjusted receipt if a
difference in amounts is found.
*When large sums of money are being taken in (for example for the musical or the prom),
two representatives of the group should count the money before giving it to the financial
coordinator for verification.
*Tickets sold for functions or activities must be numbered. The activity advisor should
complete a financial report for each function and retain it along with the unused tickets for
audit purposes. A copy of the financial report should be submitted to Dr. Campbell and to
the financial coordinator within one week of the function.
*Activity advisors should use a pre-printed pre-numbered duplicate receipt book for
recording all payments of $25.00 or more for items such as class dues, yearbook payments,
etc. The original receipt should be given to the person paying the money. The duplicate
receipts should remain undetached in the receipt book. The total of the receipt amounts for
a particular purpose should equal the amounts deposited to the activity account. The
receipt books should be turned in to the financial coordinator at the end of the school year.
Student Privileges
The ABRHS Privilege Program was designed to gradually allow students additional
responsibility helping them prepare for the decision making required after high school. In
order to accomplish this goal, the opportunities for privileges increase by grade.
Freshmen are required to go to an assigned study with faculty supervision during all study
periods throughout their freshman year.
Sophomores, during free periods, may go to the commons, the Counseling Center, one of the
three Student Centers, the library or designated areas immediately outside the building.
They may not leave school grounds during the day or loiter in the academic wings.
37
Juniors and seniors may apply for Extended Privileges. Eligibility requirements include
academic standing, attendance, and administrative and parental approval. Juniors may apply
at the close of term 1, after grades are available.
Given Extended Privileges, students may leave campus during any unassigned time.
Students arriving on campus, or departing from campus, during class time are expected to be
considerate of faculty and students in classes. They are to wait to enter the academic halls
until passing.
Surveillance cameras
Surveillance cameras will be used to help protect safety and property.
Tardiness
Tardy Policy
School starts at 7:23 a.m. If a student comes to school later than that, he/she must sign in at the
Main Office. Students arriving late to school in excess of three days per term will be required to
meet with their assistant principal before gaining admittance into class. Students chronically
late to school will be assigned detention.
If a student is late to class during the day, a note must be provided to the teacher
explaining the reason for the tardy. If a note is not provided to the teacher, the student
will be recorded as unexcused tardy. Three unexcused tardies per term in a class will
result in a three point deduction to the term grade for that class. Teachers may also
assign detention to students who are tardy unexcused to class.
Tardy Pass, ABRHS
A tardy pass is issued to students who arrive late to school. This provides a record that the
student arrived late; it does not indicate that the student's lateness is excused. First period
teachers should not accept a student into class late without a pass.
Technology
Most classrooms are equipped with overhead projectors and multimedia resources. In
addition, teachers have been issued a laptop computer to use in their teaching and recordkeeping. In return, teachers are expected to care for the equipment assigned to them or
located in the classrooms they use. Any problems with the equipment should be reported to
the Educational Technology Staff using an Tech/Ed Tech Work Request Form. To access this
form, open the Staff Resources Tab on the homepage of our ABRHS website, Submit a
Tech/Ed Tech Work Request and fill out the form to describe the problem.
38
From time to time laptops need maintenance and software upgrading. EdTech will notify
laptop users of the procedures and timing for such maintenance. During the summer laptop
users may either leave the laptop with Ed Tech. or may sign it out for summer use.
Teachers are also responsible for taking advantage of opportunities for training in the use of
educational technology.
Technology Staff
Support staff for the technology in the Acton Public and Acton-Boxborough Regional
Schools is based in the high school but serve all seven schools plus the administration
building. The Data Manager is the high school’s liaison with the technology staff and can
help with questions about technology in the high school. See Where To Go for Technology
Help at the end of this section for more information.
Testing
All teachers will administer, and promptly evaluate, a minimum of four major assessments
per marking period in each class. Department Leaders must approve all evaluations
considered the equivalent of a test(s), for instance a term paper or multiple quizzes. Tests
should not be given the day after Thanksgiving, December, February or April vacations.
Test Postponement
If a student has four or more of the following assessments – test, announced quiz, paper,
individual project or presentation, formal lab report – due or taking place on the same day,
including at least one test or announced quiz, he or she may request a test postponement. If
the student has four or more assessments on one day, but none is a test or announced quiz
he or she cannot request a formal test postponement. This is because all other assignments
have significant preparation time in advance. The student can, and should, still discuss any
stress related to these assessments with teacher(s).
Students should address the situation with individual teachers prior to a formal request for
postponement. Upon discussion with the student, it may be possible to resolve the situation
without using the postponement policy, if, for example, the teacher realizes that many
students have a conflict and that moving the assessment for everyone makes sense.
If, for a particular student, formal use of the test postponement procedure is necessary, as
soon as possible, but at least 24 hours before the scheduled assessments, the student must
send an e-mail including all of the following information to all teachers involved as well as
his or her assistant principal and counselor:
1) Student’s full name.
2) The date of the test or quiz to be postponed.
39
3) A list of the assessments due or taking place on that date including the teacher’s name,
the subject, and the type of assessment.
4) The test(s) or quiz(zes) to be postponed. Papers, projects, presentations, and lab reports
cannot be postponed through this policy.
5) The planned date to make up the test(s) or quiz(zes) that are being postponed. This
must be by the end of the following day.
6) A request that all teachers ‚reply all‛ to the student message confirming that the student
has the above-listed assessments due or taking place in their classes.
Testing Restrictions:
Guidelines for Assessment during Midyear and Final Examinations
There will be a period of at least three (3) days of in-class review before a midyear or a final
exam. In the case of a midyear exam, no other department may do any assessment on the
days of, or the day before, the midyear exam. After a particular department has given a
midyear exam, that department will not do any assessment for the three (3) school days
after the midyear exam.
No homework exceeding twenty (20) minutes is to be given the days of, or the day before, a
midyear exam. Homework exceeding twenty (20) minutes may be assigned only if it
directly applies to aiding in studying for a midyear exam. If the assignment does not
pertain to a midyear exam and is expected to take more than twenty (20) minutes, the
assignment must be given in class in order for the students to start it. The assignment
should take no more than twenty (20) minutes to complete outside of class.
Math/Science Mid-Year Exams
Week of January 22, 2013
Testing and Assessment Guidelines
Math/Science midyear review.
No assessment in any department.
Math mid-year exams; no assessment in any other department.
Science mid-year exams; no assessments in any other department.
40
Teachers may not schedule tests or have major assignments/papers due three days prior to
the beginning of final exams. In English this means three days before the first day of
English final exams; for other courses this three-day limitation refers to the beginning of the
established exam period. Teachers will spend the three days prior to the final exams
reviewing the content on the upcoming exam with their classes. See also midyear
examination.
Testing after Vacations and Holidays
Tests should not be given the day after Thanksgiving, December, February or April
vacations. Homework should not be due, nor tests scheduled, on the day following a
religious holiday observed by a school wide closing.
Tests, Quizzes and Homework Expectations during MCAS
No tests or quizzes are to be scheduled for sophomores on the days of the Spring MCAS
tests.
See also Religious Holidays and MCAS.
Test Results
All tests must be reviewed in class. For the results to be meaningful, students should have
the test questions, their own answers to the test and the correct answers. To save class time,
discussion of individual grades need not occur during the class. Unless there is a simple
error that can be corrected quickly, students should make arrangements with the teacher to
discuss their grade at another time. Test results and other assessment instruments should
be reviewed by the teacher not only in terms of student progress but also in terms of the
effectiveness of instruction.
Theft Reports
A Theft Report Form should be completed for any theft at the High School. These forms
can be obtained from the Administrative Office or from the Faculty Support Center. Once
completed, including a detailed description of lost item(s), this form should be returned
Dean of Students, Maurin O’Grady in the Admin. Office (147S).
Truancy Procedures
Notification of truancy will be delivered in writing to the student either through the
classroom teacher or the Deans. Students assigned to detention will be given twenty-four
hours in which to serve this. If the student is able to provide appropriate documentation
excusing him/her from the absence, the student must deliver this to the Main Office
41
immediately. Students refusing to serve detention will receive a three-point deduction
from the term grade of the class in which they were truant.
Unassigned/Free Time
Students may have free periods during the week. During these open blocks, depending
upon privileges, students have some choices about how to spend their time.
Options include the three Commons areas adjacent to the kitchen in the North wing, the
computer rooms when supervised, the grassy area around the gazebo and outside the
auditorium entrance, the counseling center, the lower gym and the three student centers
(East, South and West). Please note: Student Center South is a quiet center.
п‚· Students may choose to go to the library to conduct research, study or read. The
library is also maintained as a quiet study area.
п‚· Students are not to be in the front of the building, in the parking lots or in the
academic wings.
Please remind students that they are not to loiter in the academic wings during class time.
Whenever possible they should not enter the academic wings during instructional periods.
Students should be encouraged to go to their lockers during passing time.
Students may not leave school during the school day unless they have an authorized
dismissal slip or appropriate privileges. They are not to transport other students off school
grounds unless they too are authorized to leave.
Under the Influence of...
Use of alcohol or any illegal substance during the school day is a serious health and safety
concern and will be treated accordingly. Students showing physical signs of being under
the influence (slurred speech, blurry eyes, suspicious odor, or erratic behavior) of alcohol or
any illegal substance should be escorted to the Administrative Office. If a student is
suspected to be under the influence of alcohol or any illegal substance as outlined on page
31 of the handbook, a school administrator may require the student to meet with the school
nurse to better assess his/her immediate condition. If there is reasonable suspicion that a
student is under the influence, he/ she will be subject to all search and seizure procedures as
the disciplinary consequences outlined in the Student Handbook.
Vandalism Reports
A Vandalism Report Form should be completed for any incident of vandalism occurring in
the High School or on school grounds. These forms can be obtained from the
Administrative Office or from the Faculty Support Center. Once completed, including a
detailed description of the incident, this form should be returned to Maurin O’Grady, Dean
of Students.
42
Voice mail and email
Teachers are expected to check their voice mail messages, and e-mail messages, and the
ABRHS and News folders at least once each school day and to respond to parent
correspondence within 24 hours or one school day. If teachers are having difficulty
accessing or responding to their messages daily, they should notify their immediate
supervisor.
It is recommended that teachers check their folders on the e-mail system at regular intervals
as there often contains valuable information.
Weekly Progress Reports Form
Weekly progress reports are generally issued through the Counseling Department at the
parent's request. Reports submitted by teachers are forwarded directly to the parent.
Please remember to be objective and constructive. Unless otherwise negotiated with the
counselor, teacher and parent, the duration of progress reports should be limited, generally
to no more than one term. If a member of the team feels that these reports are required for a
longer time, it may indicate a more serious issue and the student should be referred to the
Student Assistance Team.
