 Student Handbook Highlights

Student Identification Cards


All Aurora Central HS students are required by Aurora Public Schools policy and the Board of Education to wear their identification (ID) cards at all times while at school and for school sponsored athletics and events, to request internet access, and to show the card to a school staff member upon request.  The ID card is also used for library admissions and material checkout.  Replacement ID Cards may be purchased in the Media Center at a cost of $5.

Students who fail to bring their ID card to school must pick up an a temporary ID card from the Monitor ‘s Desk at the front of the school. Use of temporary ID cards will be documented in a computer program.  A graduated level of consequences will be assigned to students for each additional time a student fails to bring their ID card to school.  Consequences will involve a call home, purchase of a replacement ID card and possible assignment to After School Learning Center (ASLC) or daytime placement in the Learning Center.


Tardy Policy

Arriving on time for class is an expectation of all students.  Students who arrive late must use their school ID card to pick up a tardy slip in order to be admitted to class.  Tardy slips are available from the Attendance Office, mobile tardy carts, and designated office areas to be determined.  After 3 tardies and 6 tardies, a student will be assigned to ASLC, After School Learning Center.   Graduated consequences are assigned with additional tardies

Student Use of Technology
