The Alternative Classroom (TAC)
The Alternative Classroom (TAC) is an attempt by the school district to keep a student in school and may be assigned by an administrator in lieu of Out-Of-School Suspension. A student in TAC is not permitted to move between class periods or participate in after school activities on the day of the assignment. A student will receive assignments from each of his/her teachers and is expected to complete each one. Electronic devices not required to complete a specific academic assignment are not allowed in TAC. A student must secure these items in his/her locker or relinquish them to an administrator prior to entering TAC.
Failure to report to TAC, unless excused by an administrator, will result in additional disciplinary consequences. A student is expected to adhere the rules of TAC. If a student refuses to comply with the rules of TAC, including relinquishing electronic devices, he/she may be sus-pended out of school for a minimum of 2 days.
If a student completes work assignments in TAC, he/she will receive full credit. Refusal to complete an assignment will result in a grade of zero for the assignment without the opportunity to make up the assign-ment at a later date. If a teacher has an assignment that cannot be com-pleted in TAC (test, quiz, etc.), the student must make arrangements with the teacher to complete the assignment within 2 days.
