HARRISON COUNTY SCHOOLS STUDENT CODE OF CONDUCT and DISCIPLINE POLICY: 4101.1. General Provisions.

4101.7.3. Any teacher, administrator, or authorized service personnel has the authority to search a studentís person, locker, possessions (purse, bag, wallet, etc.) and/or vehicle or bicycle on school property or at a school function so long as the administrator has reasonable suspicion for believing that the student is violating a school policy or state or federal law.

However!

4101.8.6. Electronic / Communication Devices. A student will not utilize and/or display an electronic/communication device during the school day without express approval from the school administration. A student may possess a cellular telephone or other electronic device on school property, at after school activities and at school-related functions, provided that during school hours and on school vehicles the cellular telephone or electronic device remains off. During school activities when directed by the administrator or sponsor, cellular telephones and electronic devices shall be turned off (not just placed into vibrate or silent mode) and stored out of sight. The use of cellular telephones and other electronic devices shall be strictly prohibited in any areas where individuals have a reasonable expectation of privacy, including but not limited to, locker rooms, classrooms, and bathrooms. Possession of a cellular telephone or other electronic device by a student is a privilege, not a right, and this privilege may be forfeited by any student who fails to abide by the terms of this policy, or otherwise engages in misuse of this privilege. Cellular telephones and electronic devices are not permitted, in any way, to disrupt the educational setting of the school. Violation of this section of the student code of conduct may result in confiscation of the cellular telephone or electronic device for an extended period of time. Parents/guardians may be required to retrieve a confiscated electronic device at the discretion of the school administration. Harrison County Schools shall not be responsible for lost, damaged, or stolen cellular telephones or electronic devices. Parents/guardians are advised to contact their child during the school day by calling the school office.

You could get into trouble for recording the instructor in class, but she, nor anyone else can legally search you, your bags, or your locker for your cellphone because there is no policy stating that you can not possess your phone. Furthermore, it does not state anywhere that you HAVE to place your phone in the custody of any administration during class hours. Anymore excuses?

Hmmmm. My first post didn't show up. That's okay; I'll take the time to repost because the ignorance on this site embarrasses me as a human being. I would like to suggest that we just install cameras in all the rooms. That way, when you're spying on the teacher, you can also see what jerks your children are when you're not around. Kids would have to behave because their actions would be caught on tape. They couldn't bully and then turn around and say they didn't do it - oh no, kids! While we're at it, I think we should install cameras in the homes where these children are being raised. That way, we could critique and publicly humiliate all the worthless parents who are raising this pathetic generation. For those few youths who will turn out to be good people, I'm sorry to inform you that idiots like those who have posted here will far outnumber you. Most Americans readily admit that they wouldn't teach for any amount of money; yet, teacher abuse grows ever more rampant. Schools systems are having to resort to hiring non-teaching degree, non-licensed individuals. When are you people going to get it through your heads that barely anyone wants to teach your kids anymore? When are you going to realize that no one thinks that you - the parents - are doing a good job, either? Get over yourselves!

Yeah,^^ this is what I'm talking about. Ellie Mae's Ma and Pa would $hi+! We can even do better - any time a parent wants to complain about his/her child's teacher, we should secretly install cameras at that person's place of employment, and then POST ABOUT how inefficient, lazy, and incompetent HE/SHE is at work, in addition to the home. That should be a requirement from now on: "You want to complain about a teacher? Okay, but first, we must review all tapes of your idiotic a$$ at work while you were being secretly taped. What's that, no? You've changed your mind? Mm hmm, thought so." Pssshh!

Why does everything fall back on the parents? That is all you hear when it has to do with schools issues. Kids get bullied & it's the parents fault, teachers don't do their jobs & it's the parents fault. The majority of teachers in this county don't do their jobs, that is not a reflection on the parents. That is a reflection on the BOE and their business practices. The majority of teachers that I had in school are still around. Out of all those teachers, I know of 5 that were good at their job and cared.

Kids are going to complain about teachers for one reason or another, that is not a reflection on the parents. That is LIFE, its called an opinion. However, I know first hand how easily it is for students to fall in the cracks in this screwed up system that WV call's education. Teachers and administration do not do enough to get through to the students, to make sure that they understand the work or to help them when they know their is something wrong. It is their job to reach out and help their students or call the parents if necessary, if they choose not to too, then the are failing at their jobs!

Think about what you've said here: "Kids get bullied and it's the parent[s'] fault..." Yes, it's usually the parents' fault! Those kids learn their manners and morals (or lack thereof) at HOME. The social media that they use to bully and harass others is provided by their PARENTS. Look at the bullying that goes on on sites like this one. Are you going to try to blame that on schools and teachers? What about kids who show up at school dirty, smelly, and hungry...is that the teachers' fault? What about when they show up high or sleepy because the've been out all night or on the Internet or cell all night? Is that the teacher's fault, too? What about those who "look" so well taken care of, but the truth is that they never see their parents or get any guidance because their parents are too busy making the mighty dollar? Teachers' fault? Do you realize that kids complain, not just about their teachers, but about their parents, too? Take a look at their Twitter accounts and see what great things they have to say about their parents. Good parents will teach their children to learn IN SPITE OF whether their teachers are good or bad. After all, they will come across bad professors and bad bosses, too.

Your making it sound like its ALL the parents fault, that the kids have nothing to do with it. Parents can not be blamed at all times, because its not all black and white with no shades of Grey. I was a typical teen, I skipped classes and school, I got into trouble in school and I hated the majority of my teachers. I graduated with a C average from high school, because my mother cared. I don't blame my mother for my teen issues, because she did everything she could to help me and be their for me, including buying my school books to have a set at home, contacting my teachers to get my assignments herself and making me sit and do them with her. When I got into trouble in school, I was punished at home and at school, but honestly that did not bother me. I didn't care that I was grounded, lost privledges, was put in in school suspention, after school detention, or even kicked out of school. To me, all of that was a joke.

If there are problems within the home, then yea the parents are to blame, but so are the teachers. They are in charge of the kids for 6-8 hrs a day, they should be able to notice if their are issues with the students and they should take those issues to the parents and school administration to make sure something is being done at all costs. If they don't, then they are not only failing the students, they are failing at their jobs as well.

You are mistaking "teaching" children with "rearing" children. Too many people want the school system to "make sure something is being done." I don't know how to say this without hurting your feelings, but the fact that you admit to not caring about school and skipping, and suggesting that "something [be] done at all costs" is insanely selfish. Do you not realize that there are a lot of students out there who DO care, but are often deprived of the attention THEY need because others, like you, seem to want the attention that is supposed to be spent on math, science, arts, language, etc... directed away from THEIR instruction and toward your PERSONAL problems?There are students who go to school EVERY DAY under very distressed circumstances (like up all night, studying), take every challenging course they can, and make consistent efforts to process and retain information, all because they have set hefty goals for themselves and what they want is to achieve. They often want to become doctors, engineers, physicists, etc... They will strive for and attend higher education that will require them to have a good base knowledge of several content areas, and yet, others selfishly argue that their teachers should be consumed by solving the problems of skippers, trouble-makers, and negative attention-seekers. It sounds like your mom did a good job, and I'm glad, for your sake, that she did. But that's just it...it was HER job. Parenting is a job, and it's extremely hard. Those who are not capable SHOULD NOT HAVE CHILDREN. Your misconception about whose job it is to "rear" children is sad, but unfortunately not really your fault. You see, the real purpose of "education" has been so skewed over the years that it is now actually uncommon for people to still be able to define it. However, if you ever need reminded, go to the students (or THEIR parents) who are tired of the notion that precious time that SHOULD be spent on their dreams and expectations has now been hijacked by people who "don't really care." Or better yet, maybe your child will be the one who wants to travel to space but can't because his/her teacher was too busy catching skippers, counseling troubled teens, and...parenting.

I completely realize that it's highly unlikely that you will get the point of that last post, because you admit that you didn't care and weren't a great achiever.(Most "C" students are not trying to achieve; they're trying to get by.) But just remember that there is a large faction out there that completely disagrees with you and feels that your ideology is exactly what IS wrong with our education system today - trying too hard to educate those who do not currently wish to be educated. Most secondary teachers see between 150-200 students per day who have a plethora of problems standing in the way of their educational success. The most teachers will ever be able to do is teach in a variety of ways, try to spark curiosity, advise well, and encourage kids to keep trying. They will never be able to cure their ills - mentally, emotionally, socially, or physically. I'm glad, however, that you were lucky enough to have a mom that helped you. Perhaps, you can now volunteer in your community to help kids like yourself...not at school, but at after-school programs, like The Boys and Girls clubs, Scouts, 4-H, WMCA, and many other such programs. Heck, you might even be able to offer a little tutoring. ;)

That does not sound like the Mrs. Tricot that I had in school. If you or any other student have an issue with her you need to take it to the principle. Her bullying students is not permitted and she can get in deep trouble if enough stand up and speak against her. I went to RCB, I had trouble with many teachers and the principles who were their at the time. My advice to you is to stand up and speak your mind to someone who matters, because it won't get any better as the year progresses. Like I said in my post above about RCB, I had a handful of teachers that I would define as caring and good at their job. It's sad to say that but it's true and the same in all the school in our area.
Aries I am assuming u went to RCB when its was under Pilewskis reign of terror. I also had Ms. Tricot she was a very caring teacher. Would help het students in anyway she could

I was at RCB when Fratto, Pilewski & Rollins were principles. The only one I liked, was Fratto & he seemed to be everyone enemy. Rollins was the worse of the three in my opinion though. I agree about Mr. Wheelock as well, he was quiet scary, lmao. Although I have to say, Pilewski's constant smiling was a little unnerving also, he reminded me of the Joker without the makeup.
