Administration & Policies:
My school has undergone a lot of change in my four years of being there. My sophomore year, we got a new principal at our school. He quickly made changes to our schools old policies and instructed teachers to crack the whip so to speak. Suddenly girls were finally being confronted for their much-too-short shots, boys with their "bro tanks." It was actually a relief to have this change. I as a student was growing tired of seeing so much skin so I did not mind the change. This year, the big change has been the tardy policy. When students have a minuet left to get to class, a specific whistle (almost like a train horn) rings letting us know, oh you better run if you plan on making it. If you didn't make it to class in time, they locked you out. Harsh some may be thinking, but all you needed to get into class was a magical yellow pass. Here's the catch, these passes are in the attendance office. By doing this, it cut down on the attendance offices work load, made class start faster, and made kids run like no other to class. If you were locked out three times, detention. Five lead to a Saturday school. Any more than that was an at school suspension. Let me just say, I have seen kids cross my school campus in record breaking time to avoid being locked out. Shoot, I've had my fair share of early morning runs to class.
