Independent Contracts for Study

Independent Contracts for Study

It is extremely important that students have regular attendance until the end of the school year. Parents should be aware that five or more absences in a grading period might have a significant effect on a student’s academic progress. Therefore, students who will miss five or more consecutive days for reasons other than illness are encouraged to complete an Independent Contract for Study in lieu of attending school.
To be eligible for independent study, parents must contact the school secretary at least 5 days prior to the planned absence outlining dates and reasons for the request. All work must be submitted on the day the student returns to receive credit for those days missed.  
If an emergency should arise and different accommodations are needed, please contact the school office as soon as possible.  If possible, every effort will be made to accommodate the situation.
Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS)

Positive Behavior Intervention Supports (PBIS)

We want to ensure children know how to be successful, and we want them to learn in a safe and healthy environment.  This will be achieved through the adoption of the Positive Behavior Intervention & Supports (PBIS); a consistent school-wide positive support and discipline plan. This will include: teaching school rules and social-emotional skills; reinforcing appropriate student behavior; using effective classroom management and positive behavior support strategies; providing early intervention for misconduct and using appropriate consequences.  
Clover Flat School has three conceptual rules:
  1. Be Safe
  2. Be Respectful
  3. Be Responsible
Here are some examples:
  • Students will be safe by keeping their hands, feet, and objects to themselves.
  • Students will be respectful by using kind words to others
  • Students will be responsible by arriving to school on time with all their supplies.
All behaviors that people engage in can fall under these three categories. We will be refining these rules over the course of the year as students learn appropriate behaviors for school.  Continue to look for more information on PBIS each month.

Students who engage in severe behaviors that violate Education Code 48900 outlined in the Board Policy may be subject to suspension / expulsion.  Those acts are summarized on the backside of this page.  For the full version of the policy, please ask for a copy.
