GHCHS DETENTION POLICY
Approved by Governing Board

All detentions MUST be completed by the end of the marking period that they were assigned in, or if issued after the end of that marking period they are to be completed by the end of the next marking period.
  1. Parents may be notified of detention progress at the end of each marking period either by mail, phone, or conference, if there is a balance of detentions not served.
  2. Conferences will be scheduled on an individual basis at the discretion of a Dean or Administrator in charge.
Detention hours will be reviewed each marking period to determine if students are meeting set "detention-served" goals as follows:
