In addition, Butler County Educational Christian Academy will not discriminate on the basis of race, color, gender, or ethnic origin in the administration of its educational or athletic programs or extra-curricular activities. This school is not intended to be an alternative to court orders, administrative agencies, or public school district-initiated desegregation.


Safety Procedures

Evacuation drills, severe weather drills, and lock downs are practiced periodically throughout the school year. All outside doors are locked during the school day.

School Procedures

Attendance

It is the responsibility of the parent to assure the regular daily school attendance of their child. Students should be dropped off by 8:00 am. Morning worships starts at 8:15 am. Students that are not in the worship service at 8:15 are considered tardy. All absences, tardiness, or early dismissals need to be called in to the school office by 8:15 am.

"Excessive absences" include: If any of the above takes place, the Hamilton truant officer will be contacted. Continued Issues will result in notifying juvenile court and/or expulsion.

Make-Up Work:

Scheduling of make-up work, along with tests, is at the discretion of the teacher. Failure to make up missed work will result in a zero.

Please notify your child's teacher of any extenuating circumstances that may arise that prevent your child from completing a specific assignment.

Mandated reporting of Child Abuse or Suspected Abuse

In accordance with state law, school staff is obligated under penalty of fine and jail term to report the reasonable suspicion of physical abuse, sexual abuse, or child neglect.

School staff will make such reports in the best interest of the child and do not, once reasonable suspicion is established, have any legal alternative except to make the report to the proper authorities for their investigation and review.
