No. 908





1. Purpose

Pol. 917

The Joint Operating Committee believes that the education of students is a joint responsibility that is shared with parents/guardians. To ensure that the best interests of each student are served in the educational process, a strong program of communication and cooperation between home and school must be maintained and parental involvement encouraged.

2. Authority

The Joint Operating Committee feels that it is the parents/guardians who have the ultimate responsibility for their children's behavior in school, including the behavior of students who have reached the legal age of majority but are still, for all practical purposes, under parental authority.

3. Delegation of Responsibility

SC 1317

During school hours, the Joint Operating Committee acts in loco parentis, or in place of the parents/guardians, through its designated administrators.
