Diamond Oaks Campus Policies & Information

Code of Conduct for Students

At Great Oaks, all teachers and staff work together to ensure your success--in the classroom, in the lab, and in life.

A safe and comfortable environment is essential for all students to be successful.  We work to provide the proper setting for our students.  This includes expectations that students will treat themselves, each other, the staff, and the facilities with respect and dignity.

We are proud of our students and their efforts to maintain a safe and comfortable school environment.  All who attend here agree to abide by the Student Code of Conduct.

The Student Code of Conduct is attached here, along with the complete Student Handbook.

Student Expectations 2020-2021

Diamond Oaks is dedicated to providing an excellent educational experience, as well as a safe learning environment for you.  In order to provide the best environment for learning, the following items need to be adhered to by all students.  It is important you understand and follow these rules as well as the entire code of conduct.

DRESS CODE

The purpose of our dress code is to prepare students for their chosen career field. All programs have a dress code that is based on industry standards. The uniform for each lab is provided in a separate school uniform document. Students are expected to be in their career lab uniforms every day for the entirety of the school day.  Diamond will have a few days throughout the school year in which students will be permitted to be out of uniform. You will be notified of these days by your lab instructor and/or by phone. Students must observe the following dress code rules and regulations at all times:

  • All students must have a face covering that covers their mouth and nose.
  • Shorts, capris, and pajama bottoms are not permitted.
  • Leggings, jeggings, and yoga pants are not permitted.
  • Pants should not have rips/tears that expose the leg and must be worn at the waistline, so undergarments are not exposed.
  • Skirts must be within 4” of the bend of the knee.
  • Muscle shirts, tank tops, camisoles, halter tops, or any other thin strapped tops/dresses are not permitted. Clothing cannot expose cleavage, the midriff, bareback, shoulders, or undergarments.
  • Sunglasses, hats, scarves, hoods, or all other head coverings are not permitted. Headbands cannot be more than 2 inches in width.
  • Students may not display anything with words or pictures that represent alcohol, tobacco, drugs, weapons, vulgarity, or a topic that would be inflammatory or offensive is not permitted. (I.e. confederate symbols.)
  • Shoes must be worn at all times. No slippers or house shoes allowed.  No blanket or pillows.
  • Clothes must not be too tight or grossly oversized as to cause a disruption.

ATTENDANCE POLICY

Diamond Oaks and Great Oaks will calculate attendance based on a student’s required in-person, zoom instruction, and virtual assignments.  Hours will be submitted by the student’s teachers.  Should a student begin to fall behind, parents will receive phone calls.  Should it continue and a student becomes excessively or habitually truant, the student will receive a letter at their home.  Truancy will be followed based on Ohio House Bill 410.

ID BADGES

ID badges must be worn by everyone in the building in order to maintain a safe and secure environment. ID’s are needed when checking out books from the Cybrary, borrowing loaner laptops, and for use in the cafeteria when you are purchasing your breakfast and lunch.

HALL PASSES

Students must have one of the staff member’s hall pass if they are in the hallway or restroom during class time.  One student per pass will be allowed out of the room.  No hall passes will be given the first 10 minutes and the last 10 minutes of each class, during 4th and 5th bell lunches, and after 2:00.

ELECTRONIC DEVICES

Cell phones and/or other personal electronic devices are NOT to be used in the classrooms/labs during instructional times without instructor permission.  They may be used in the cafeteria during your lunch and before or after school.  Laptops and other electronic devices can only be used as media players when headphones are used and as long as the instructor has given prior approval.  At no time should music be played in the classroom/lab, during lunch or in the hallways without headphones.

 

LAPTOPS

The Student Laptop Program at Great Oaks is designed to help students succeed academically and help prepare them for their future. The laptops issued to the students are district property.  The student is responsible for the care of his/her laptop/charger. The software installed by the district must remain on the laptop.  Students are prohibited from tampering with district-installed software/hardware or installing/downloading other software on the laptop.
