School Policies

Welcome to FuturEdge Charter Academy, where we prioritize the holistic development and success of our students. Below, you’ll find information on our essential policies and guidelines:

Parent Student Handbook:

Our Parent Student Handbook serves as a comprehensive guide outlining the policies, procedures, and resources available at FuturEdge Charter Academy. It covers important topics such as academic expectations, attendance requirements, disciplinary procedures, and student support services. Parents and students are encouraged to familiarize themselves with the contents of the handbook to ensure a smooth and successful educational journey.

Cell Phone Policy

FuturEdge Charter Academy has implemented a cell phone policy to ensure a focused and productive learning environment for all students. This policy aims to minimize distractions, promote student engagement, and maintain a safe and respectful atmosphere throughout the school day.

The use of cell phones during instructional time is strictly prohibited. This includes accessing social media, messaging apps, games, or any other non-educational content on cell phones. Students are required to keep their cell phones turned off or on silent mode and securely stored in their backpacks or designated areas during school hours.

Consequences for the unauthorized use of cell phones during instructional time or other restricted areas include:
First Offense:
  • Verbal warning and reminder of the cell phone policy.
  • The student will be required to turn off their cell phone and store it in their backpack or designated area for the remainder of the class or instructional period.
Second Offense:
  • Written warning issued to the student, documenting the violation.
  • The student’s cell phone will be confiscated and held by a designated school staff member until the end of the school day. Parents/guardians will be notified of the violation and must pick up the cell phone from the administrator.
Subsequent Offenses:
  • Progressive disciplinary action, including but not limited to:
    • Detention or after-school study sessions.
    • Loss of privileges, such as participation in extracurricular activities or events.
    • Parent/guardian conference to discuss the continued violation of the cell phone policy.
  • Additional consequences as determined by the school administration.

Please note that repeated violations of the cell phone policy may result in more severe disciplinary action in accordance with the school’s code of conduct, including but not limited to suspension or loss of privileges.

Dress Code (Uniform) Policy

Uniforms are implemented at FuturEdge Charter Academy to promote mutual respect and create a focused, comfortable, and disciplined learning environment. Parents and guardians are responsible for ensuring that clothing is appropriately sized for each individual. Uniforms must be worn throughout the academic day, including after-school clubs, tutoring, detention, and field trips.

FuturEdge Charter Academy students are expected to wear appropriate clothing based on their grade level and the specific situation. Inappropriate clothing and appearance can disrupt the school program, and principals are entrusted with enforcing compliance with the dress code policy among those under their jurisdiction.

The final authority to determine whether clothing complies with the school’s rules rests with administrators. If a student’s clothing is deemed non-compliant, a parent or guardian may be requested to bring appropriate attire to school. Students who are out of the dress code will be relocated to the ISS classroom or a similar waiting area until a parent or guardian can provide the proper uniform. Whenever possible, the school administration will strive to provide access to a digital device for the student to complete classwork while in ISS. The student will be permitted to attend or participate in classes or transition time once dressed in the proper uniform.

Student Code of Conduct:

At FuturEdge Charter Academy, we are committed to fostering a safe, respectful, and inclusive learning environment for all students. Our Student Code of Conduct outlines the behavioral expectations and consequences for students, emphasizing the values of integrity, responsibility, and mutual respect. By adhering to these guidelines, students contribute to a positive school culture where everyone can thrive academically and socially.

Technology Use Policy:

In today’s digital age, technology plays a crucial role in education. Our Technology Use Policy outlines the guidelines and expectations for students’ responsible use of technology resources, including school-provided devices, internet access, and online platforms. By promoting responsible digital citizenship and cybersecurity practices, we empower students to harness the power of technology for learning while ensuring a safe and secure online environment for all members of our school community.

At FuturEdge Charter Academy, we believe that clear communication and mutual understanding of our policies are essential for fostering a collaborative partnership between school, parents, and students. Should you have any questions or require further clarification on any of our policies, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our administrative team. Together, we can create a supportive and enriching educational experience for every student at FuturEdge Charter Academy.
