Diplomas/transcripts will not be issued to any student who has outstanding disciplinary consequences to the Student Affairs Office (example: detentions). Any student who commits a disciplinary infraction during any end of the year senior events may have the infraction and their record go before the Student Review Board. The Board will determine what consequence, if any, the student will be required to complete prior to being issued their diploma and/or before having final transcripts mailed to the universities/institutions requested. Please note that the Student Review Board may recommend detentions, summer work hours, and up to expulsion for any grievous action which takes place during an end of year senior event.

Diplomas/transcripts may be withheld until the Student Review Board’s recommendation has been fulfilled by the student. Please ensure that your graduate keeps this in mind since most universities acceptances are pending receipt of final transcripts by a specific deadline.
