this information. Parents are responsible for ensuring their student(s) understand this information.
We also understand that this Student Code of Conduct & Discipline Handbook contains rules that
students are expected to follow, including but not limited to, rules that must be followed at school,

or other transportation provided by the District, at school bus stops; while in any vehicle used in connection

legal consequences if a child does not attend school as required by Georgia law in § 20-2-690.1.

Education's Georgia Student Health Survey II (GSHS II) and that if we do not “opt out” our child from
survey participation, he/she could be selected to complete a survey on or after October 2.
We also understand that in addition to school-based discipline of students, student misconduct may be
reported to appropriate law enforcement authorities. The School District encourages parents/guardians

We understand that all volunteers who work with children in the state of Georgia are required by law to
report suspected child abuse as required by Georgia law in O.C.G.A. 19-7-5.

to discuss those questions.
