Open Campus

In order to give students an opportunity to demonstrate responsibility and positive citizenship, the Governing Board establishes an open campus at all district high schools in which students shall have the privilege of leaving campus during lunch.

The privilege of open campus may be revoked from individual students for disciplinary reasons.

(cf. 5144 - Discipline)

Students shall not leave the school grounds at any other time during the school day without written permission of their parents/guardians and school authorities. Students who leave school or who fail to return following lunch without authorization shall be classified truant and subject to disciplinary action.

(cf. 5113 - Absences and Excuses)
