The expectation of Beaverton High School is that all students are punctual to all classes. If a student arrives to a classroom after the tardy bell, within the first 15 minutes of the class period, they are considered tardy.
If a student wishes to excuse a tardy, verification of the tardy as excused or unexcused will be provided in the form of a BPASS issued by the Attendance Office. Because the Beaverton School District provides reliable and daily transportation, attendance issues related to personal transportation (parent or student) are not considered excused other than for severe emergencies.
The consequence for an unexcused tardy for a specific class period is one day of After School Detention, to be served from 2:45-3:30pm, beginning no later than three days after the referral is issued. It is the student's responsibility to communicate to their parent or legal guardian when detention is assigned and to make alternate transportation plans when necessary. Teachers, administrators, campus supervisors or any other staff member may issue detentions for tardies.
If a student fails to serve his/her detention within the prescribed time period, the student will be referred back to the teacher and communication from the teacher to the student's home will be made to advise of time not served. If the student fails to serve detention the day after contact with the parent or legal guardian, the student will be referred to an administrator for further consequences and/or a possible suspension.
