Policies & Procedures

The Board of Trustees of Seven Generations Charter School will have the authority to make reasonable and necessary policies and procedures governing the conduct of students in school. The Board of Trustees is committed to creating a safe and positive learning environment wherein students learn to be kind, compassionate, respectful, hardworking, independent, resourceful, and well-adjusted individuals. Such an environment requires, of course, that students recognize their rights and responsibilities, as well as those of other students, teachers, parent/guardians, administrators, and members of the school community.

Following is a list of school policies approved by the Board of Trustees, as well as various guidelines, manuals and procedures.
