Citizenship

Citizenship is required for participation in some school events. Citizenship is lost for the semester when:

  • a student is suspended or expelled from school
  • a student receives a 2nd assignment to AEA
  • a student is late or tardy 6 or more times
  • a student is truant 3 or more times
  • a student receives a referral to the office for cheating
  • a Principal or Principal Designee deems it a justifiable reason to revoke a student’s citizenship.

Policy for Dances

If a Central High School student wishes to attend a school dance at Central or at any other school, the following criteria must be met:

GRADES: Students must be passing all of their classes in order to attend school dances.

  • If a student received an F on their last report card, the student must complete a Dance Appeal Form, including the appropriate Teacher’s signature(s) and turn it in to Mrs. Henderson in the Assistant Principal’s office at least 7 days prior to the upcoming dance.
  • If a student received an F on their last report card and is still failing a class, the student may also complete a Dance Appeal Form with the Teacher’s signature confirming that the student has zero (0) missing assignments, tests, or past due projects of any kind. 
  • Students should be certain that their appeal form is filled out completely and contains the required teacher signatures before they are submitted to the office.

ATTENDANCE: Student attendance affects dance privileges as follows: (Please note that you only have 48 hours to clear an absence.)

  • A student must have less than 10 lates during the current semester.
  • A student must have less than 5 periods of truancy during the current semester.

 If a student loses their dance privileges due to attendance or discipline issues, those privileges will not be re-instated. 

 If a student wishes to bring a guest that is not a Central High School Junior or Senior, a Dance Guest Request Form must be approved by Mrs. St. Clair and presented at the time your tickets are purchased. Prom Guest Request forms will be posted here as they become available.

 The Student Code of Conduct will be in effect at all times. Those students who bring registered guests are responsible for properly informing their dates of this code. Students are expected to model good character at all times. Student behavior rules extend to dancing. Dancing in a manner that implies sexual promiscuity or lewd behavior will not be permitted. School dress code still applies for the Turnabout Dance. 

Boys’ formal dress attire- may be classified as a tuxedo or dress suit, including a tie, bow tie, a turtle neck, a dress shirt, which may include a vest or cummerbund. Shirts are to be buttoned and worn at all times. Tennis shoes and athletic shoes are unacceptable.
