Parent Code of Conduct
Innovations International Charter School of Nevada encourages its parents to visit the school and classrooms to observe their children, teachers, and staff members. The school and its sanctioned events are a place of work and learning where policies must be set to provide for the safety of the students. The building principal or his/her designee is responsible for securing all persons in the building and on the grounds. Therefore, the following rules for a Parent Code of Conduct apply to parents and visitors at the school.
- Anyone who is not a regular staff member or student at the school is considered to be a visitor. This includes parents, family members, and community members.
- Parents/guardians must report to the office upon arrival at the school to sign in, get a name tag, and state their reason for being at the school.
- Parents/guardians who wish to observe in a classroom while school is in session are required to arrange their visits at least 24-hours in advance with the classroom teacher to limit class disruption.
- Teachers will not take classroom instructional time to discuss individual student matters with parents/guardians. This takes away from instructional time.
- Unauthorized people on campus will be reported to the principal and/or his/her designee. Any parent unauthorized to be on campus will be asked to leave. A trespass may be issued, and local law enforcement will be called if the situation warrants.
- Parents/guardians are expected to abide by the rules for public conduct on school property contained in this code of conduct.
- Parents/guardians will be asked to maintain a positive attitude toward education, the school, teachers, and staff members at all times.
- Parents/guardians will be asked to show an active interest in their child’s schoolwork and progress through regular professional communication with the school.
- Parents/guardians will be asked to help their child in being neat, follow dress code, and be well-groomed at all times.
- Parents/guardians will be asked to make sure their child attends school regularly and on time each day that school is open or in session.
- Parents/guardians will be asked to report and explain to the school any absence or late arrival.
- Parents/guardians will display polite and appropriate behavior when speaking to or working with school officials whether on the phone, through email, via text message, or in person.
- Parents/guardians will be available to speak with the school staff concerning their child, especially about class work and discipline.
- Parents/guardians will be asked to refrain from using derogatory speech, curse words, or aggressive behavior/conversations with teachers and/or support staff.
- Parents/guardians will be asked to attend the yearly Parent-Teacher conference to assist the teacher in helping his/her child to succeed academically.
- Parents/guardians will be asked to remain patient and respectful when seeking assistance and correspondence/communication from school personnel.

The building principal or his/her designee is responsible for enforcing the conduct required by this code. In the instance that a prohibited conduct is witnessed that does not pose an immediate threat or injury to persons or property, the principal or his/her designee will inform the parent/guardian of the infraction and ask for the individual to stop. If there is a refusal to stop the infraction, the parent/guardian will be trespassed and asked to remove himself/herself from the school property or the school sanctioned event. If the parent/guardian does not comply, local law enforcement officers will be called to assist in removing the person.
