Elementary/Secondary Teachers


Infinite Campus:

      Post attendance every period/day as required

      Have grades properly posted weekly to assist parents and students in following their progress throughout the quarter/semester

      Keep information correct, current and notify office of any changes as necessary


Excused/Unexcused Absences and Tardies:

Excused absences are absences from school by students in which the parent/guardian has notified the classroom teacher or office in writing or orally.  In general, the following reasons for being absent are:

      Student illness

      Death or serious illness in the family

      Funeral of relatives or close friends

      Working for parents

      The procedures for excusing absences, making up work, and proper student accounting will be set by the principal.


Progress Reports:

      At the beginning of the first and second semesters (first and third nine weeks) the student will have a three week period before the teachers will post their grades to check and see if students are eligible for extracurricular activities.  After that three week period the grades will be posted every two weeks and the eligibility will be checked until the next semester begins.  If a student has one F the student will be declared ineligible for the activity or activities in which they are participating.

      The grades will be posted by the teachers that Thursday night before the next eligibility period begins.  Then Friday morning the grades will be printed off by the high school principal/Athletic Director.

      If there is any student who is ineligible the high school principal will inform the coach and any extra-curricular participant that they are ineligible for the next two weeks.  During that two week period the student(s) will have the opportunity to bring up their grades to become eligible once the grades are checked again.  A student’s ineligibility will begin the following Monday and go until the grades are checked again.  If the student becomes eligible again at the next posting he/she will be able to participate again on the following Monday.

      ***Even though a student is found ineligible that Friday, he/she will be able to participate in that weekend’s activities.  The student will become ineligible the following Monday.

      If a student is ineligible for two weeks they may continue to practice with their team, but are not allowed to suit up for any game or perform in any extra-curricular activity.

      If a student has an F in two of their classes at semester break, they will be ineligible for the whole semester.  This is not only in accordance with Faulkton School guidelines, but also the South Dakota High School Activities Association guidelines as well.

      If a student is ineligible for a two week period and has a study hall, he/she will have his/her study hall privileges restricted.  This means that a copy of who is ineligible will also be given to those who watch over the students in study hall.

      Lastly if a student is found to be ineligible at the end of the fourth quarter, his/her ineligibility will be enforced at the beginning of the next nine weeks.

      Keep grades current on Infinite Campus so that parents and students can check their grade(s) weekly.
