Summer School Regulations
We cannot make exceptions to the rules of conduct or attendance and must enforce the rules strictly, quickly, and consistently to maintain an
atmosphere conducive to learning.
Call the GBN Attendance Office at 847-509-2432 to report an absence. One day of summer school is equivalent to one week of classroom instruction.
No more than two absences per semester are allowed in summer school. Tardiness of fifteen minutes or more equals an absence. A third absence will
result in the student being dropped from summer school with a "WF." Driver education students are allowed only one absence. See course description
for further information. There are no refunds of tuition or fees. Please do not ask for special consideration.
During the summer, we expect the same behavior as is expected during the school year. Students who use or possess tobacco, controlled substances,
or prohibited devices may be dismissed from summer school, as we may also do with those who are truant or excessively tardy, or who commit acts of
gross misconduct. These students will forfeit credit and fees for the semester.
Students may possess wireless communication devices on school grounds. However, these devices are to be used only in areas designated for use and
in a manner deemed acceptable and appropriate by the school administration. Use of wireless devices in the classroom, in areas being used to
conduct instruction or on school trips are at the discretion of the teacher, coach, sponsor, chaperone or any school staff member acting in an
official or unofficial supervisory capacity. Use of such devices by students is not to be disruptive to the activity or event.
The Board of Education for District 225 has established a policy for academic dishonesty. The academic dishonesty policy that has been established
for the regular school year will be in effect during summer school. Any student who violates the academic dishonesty policy may be withdrawn from
summer school without credit.
Academic Dishonesty includes such infractions as:
- Obtaining a copy of tests or scoring devices
- Using another student’s answers during an examination
- Providing another student questions or answers to or copies of examination questions
- Having another person impersonate the student to assist the student academically
- Impersonating another student to assist the student academically
- Representing as one’s own work the product of someone else’s creativity
- Using, or having available for use, notes or other unpermitted materials during “closed book” examinations
- Duplicating any portion of another student’s homework, paper, project, laboratory report, take-home examination, electronic file or application
for submission as accepting a copy of tests or scoring devices
- Having someone other than the student prepare any portion of the student’s homework, paper, project, laboratory report, take-home examination,
electronic file or application, other than for a teacher-approved collaborative effort
- Permitting another student to copy any portion of another student’s homework, paper, project, laboratory report, take-home examination,
electronic file or application other than for a teacher-approved collaborative effort
- Using any portion of copyrighted or published material, including but not limited to electronic or print media, without crediting the source
- Any other action intended to obtain credit for work that is not one’s own.
