Demerit System

The Demerit System addresses dress code violations, tardies to school, and class cuts. Any student who violates the dress code is tardy to school, or receives a class cut (unexcused absence), will be issued a demerit through our Demerit Coordinator. Continued negligence will lead to progressive discipline including Saturday Academy, A.M./P.M. Detention, In-School Suspension, etc. Continued improvement will lead to positive recognition. Please see the chart below outlining the demerit system.

Students who are tardy to first period past 8:00 a.m. will be issued 1 Demerit. Students who cut first period will be issued 2 Demerits. Students who cut a class during periods 2-8 will be issued 1 Demerit. Students who are tardy at least 3 times to the same class will be issued 1 Demerit.

**Please remember that all absences must be submitted the day you return to school. If submitted late, demerits will not be removed.

5 Demerits = After School Detention

*If a student is assigned detention by Lane Tech and they serve the detention, we will have three demerits removed for that detention. This is a one time removal option and cannot be applied to multiple served detentions.

10 Demerits = Student cannot attend the homecoming dance, Turn About, or other school dance; seniors also cannot attend Oktoberfest

15 Demerits = Student cannot attend or participate in international days/nights

20 Demerits = Student cannot be a date at prom or, for seniors, cannot attend prom or senior luncheon, etc.

25+ Demerits = Underclassmen have 5 demerits that carry over to next school year
