Citizenship

Citizenship at Burton Academy is a reflection of a student’s overall behavior. This includes, but is not limited to, dress, respectfulness, attendance and classroom demeanor. Violations will result in deductions of points based on infractions. Discipline beyond deduction of points may also occur.

Dress Code

Studies have shown that students who are neat and clean, and who have a wholesome attitude toward dress, have a better chance of success. Therefore, in the best interest of the school and the students themselves, all students are required to conform to the dress policy as approved by the school board. Students who disobey this policy will be asked to return home or make arrangements for other clothes before they will be allowed to return to class. In some cases fines may be assessed, and a new garment of the appropriate type provided to the student.
