We just finished getting open campus for my junior in high school.Open campus is offered to juniors and seniors for lunch.
Wow they have tightened it up over the years...a very good thing...at least I thinks so ; ) .Now two ids are issued after application is accepted ,the off campus on is a distinctive color.Forget it and it is 20 dollars to get a different one ...in other words tough ,stay on campus. It is now connected to the schools computer system so it can be removed from 48 hours to the rest of the year for many reasons grades ,behavior ,not attending a school required tutorial,tardiness ...lots.It also required a notarized form with a parents signature.Think these regulations are great.
6 yrs ago just a signature was required and there were stickers.12 yrs ago just forms were signed.
Oh ya if you have a car in the parking lot ,he does ,all student cars leaving during lunch have to have a open campus sticker.W e requested and received stickers for all the cars just in case.
I chatted with the attendance office clerk.She said the main issue had been tardies coming back from lunch.Disturbed classes too much.Now that it is so easy to track starting a couple of years ago the lunch tardies dropped to almost none.
Does your school have off campus lunch ?
If it does is there an age or year requirement ?
What are your schools regulations concerning open campus?
