Expectations of Spectrum Students


"Whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God." 1 Corinthians 10:31

 At Spectrum we expect that all students understand and display self-government. This will be evident as the students do the following:

• Dress appropriately. Students should dress neatly, considerately, and modestly. Parents should provide guidance to ensure that this happens.

• Use edifying language. Students should be considerate in their speech, avoiding the use of foul, profane and/or inappropriate language.

• Show respect. Students should treat each other and all adults associated with Spectrum with respect.

• Act responsibly. It will be the students’ responsibility to come prepared for class and be where they are supposed to be at all times.

• Cooperate. During class, students will be encouraged to participate in discussions. Electronic devices, passing notes, talking out of turn, working on other assignments, and/or any other disruptions will be prohibited.

• Show positive attitude. Students are expected to be cheerful, willing, and, when addressed, to respond with immediate compliance.

• Use electronic devices responsibly. Students should follow these guidelines regarding electronic devices.

• Electronics are for each student’s personal use; devices may not be shared. They may be used for educational purposes only (school work completion, research, note taking) during the Spectrum school day.

• Cell phones may not be used during school hours except with permission of the Student Activities Supervisor (SAS) or a Spectrum teacher. Cell phones may be left on vibrate for emergencies and parent contact only. At the discretion of Spectrum staff, high school students may be permitted to use their cell phones during non-class time.

• Use of electronic devices to play video games is prohibited during the school day. At the discretion of Spectrum staff, high school students may be permitted to use headphones for music during study hall.

• Electronic devices used for any reason other than those listed above may be taken by the SAS or Spectrum teacher until the end of the school day.

• SCHC will not be held responsible for lost, stolen, or damaged electronic devices.

• Adhere to pick-up policies. Students should be picked up by their parents (or designated others) at the end of their SCHC school days. A student may not exit the building until the Student Activities Supervisor (SAS) sees the parent or designated other and releases the student. Any other arrangements must be made in writing with the SAS.

Consequences: If a student is non-compliant with the above or causes other disruption, the parent will be notified immediately and the student will be excused from the rest of the day’s classes at Spectrum.
