Dean/Administrative Intervention Strategies
Eagle Rock Junior/Senior High School assumes the obligation to assist all students in the development of their talents and interests to the maximum of their potential capacity. The Standards of Behavior have been created by a committee of parents, students, teachers, and administrators. These standards have been designed to develop responsibility for personal actions within each individual in accordance with the socially recognized values of Eagle Rock High School. These standards are aligned with LAUSD’s Discipline Foundation Policy, “School-Wide Positive Behavior Support.”
Our ultimate goal is a mature individual who accepts the responsibility to:
Respect the rights of others and recognize that violence, fighting, threats, intimidation, harassment and profanity have no place within our school environment.
Respect the property of others, actively discourage theft and vandalism, improve the appearance of our school, avoid littering, pick up after yourself, and encourage others to do the same.
Recognize the authority of teachers and other school personnel responsible for students’ care.
Understand and cooperate fully with school rules and regulations concerning traffic and safety.
Establish and maintain a good attendance pattern to be at school and to be at each class on time. Refrain from loitering on or near school property when not involved in a school activity.
Be present in each class prepared for the day’s lesson with books and other materials. Demonstrate and encourage positive classroom behavior.
Recognize the dangers of alcohol and drugs and make every effort to keep the school clear of any type of stimulant or narcotic. Recognize the health hazards of smoking and refrain from the use of tobacco on or adjacent to school property. We strongly support the Zero Tolerance policy.
Refrain from wearing clothing that (a) affects a student’s safety or the safety of other; (b) disrupts the learning process; or (c) indicates affiliation with or admiration of negative social influences, such as gangs, substance abuse, or profanity. This policy includes headgear (caps, hoods, beanies) With the exception of ER logo headgear, “headgear must be put away or it will be taken away. ”
In summary, the committee also recognizes that parents have the obligation and responsibility to provide a home and family environment that emphasizes the value of education and supports the school in enforcing the Standards of Behavior.
In addition to the Standards of Behavior, students and their parents or guardians should know the following information:
The LAUSD policy on school expulsion for weapons states that if students of any age or grade level bring guns, knives, or weapons of any kind to school, they are subject to arrest and expulsion from the District. This applies to all types of guns, including air guns, stun guns, replica guns, and knives.
Anyone in possession of drugs or alcohol on campus is subject to disciplinary action. As stated above, we strongly support the Zero Tolerance policy.
Students caught gambling on campus are subject to disciplinary action.
Anyone who has caused, attempted to cause, or threatened to cause physical injury to another person is subject to disciplinary action.
All electronic devices are not to be activated or used during school hours (7:54 a.m. - 3:07 p.m.). Electronic devices used (or seen) during this time will be confiscated. Parents can retrieve such items from the Dean’s Office after school. It is recommended that all electronic devices be left at home. Cell phones are not to be activated or used during school hours (7:54 a.m. - 3:07 p.m.). Cell phones used (or seen) during this time will be confiscated. Parents can retrieve cell phones from the Dean’s Office after school.
Metal detection will take place on a daily basis in randomly selected classes and activities.

In order to access the Eagle Rock Network and the Internet, all students must have a signed consent form on file. The AUP presents the acceptable rules and etiquette for Internet use.
Students must attend school every day and arrive on time to all classes 100% of the time. Students with five or more unverified/unexcused absences in the current school year will be referred to the Pupil Services and Attendance (PSA) Counselor. Regardless of whether an absence is verified, unverified, excused, or unexcused, parents or guardians must always send a note with the student to the Attendance Office when a student is absent or tardy. If the absence is for more than 3 days, the note must be from a medical office. THE ATTENDANCE OFFICE DOES NOT ACCEPT PHONE CALLS TO EXCUSE AN ABSENCE OR TARDY.
Returning from an absence:
Students should report to the Attendance Office no later than 7:40 a.m. for an absence slip. Bring a signed note from your parent or guardian stating the date(s) and reason for your absence. After you have been readmitted from an absence in all of your classes, you should keep the slip for your personal records. If you arrive late to school, bring a note from your parent or guardian and report to the Attendance Office. Notes may not be accepted by students who are habitually late to school. If you lose your absence slip, you may obtain a duplicate from the Attendance Office.
Leaving school early:
Parents/Guardians should try to schedule appointments during school breaks, before or after school. Students leaving early from school will not receive a daily perfect attendance record and they miss important instructional time. However, we know that emergencies do occur and if a student must leave campus early for a medical appointment, or other reason, the parent or guardian must come to the Attendance Office to check them out unless they are 18 years old, then the parent or guardian will be called to verify the request to leave campus. Be sure to bring a note to the office the day that you return to excuse any absent time. Before leaving campus, all parents and students must sign out in the Attendance Office. Adults checking students out of school must be on the Emergency Card and have a pictured I.D.
Address/Telephone Number Changes:
In order to attend Eagle Rock High School you must live in the attendance area and the parent/guardian must be able to verify the address with a utility bill, mortgage bill or a rental agreement. If you change your home address and/or telephone number, please inform the Attendance Office. An address change must be verified by the above documents. The student or parent/guardian must bring these documents to the Attendance Office for verification that you still leave in the attendance area.
If you move outside the Eagle Rock area, you may be checked out to your resident school. Please inform our PSA Counselor about your resident change.
