This upcoming school year of 2019-2020, there have been changes to the Bolles dress code, along with the Bolles Student Handbook, and despite it being broadcasted to the entire school in a convocation, along with it being ready to view in the Handbook, students are still getting demerits for dress code. That is why Deans Allison Denmark and John Newman chose to ask the students around Bolles if they have read the Handbook.
The School Handbook is incredibly important. Often, when students find themselves with demerits, they go back to read the Handbook but they only read the section that applies to that situation.
“It [the students who have read the full Handbook] would be a very small percentage and I think that’s, you know, understood, and I would doubt that there’s a high percentage of parents that read it, too.” Newman stated, “It’s just one of those things where you have to go online and find it and there’s a lot of information there.”
I think the most important question- and you can put a gold star by it is: have you read the Student Parent Handbook? Dean Newman
Out of the 36 students surveyed, 13 of the students read it partially but 23 haven’t, which would make the percentage 36.1% who have read it, and 63.8% who have not.
