The Board grants authority to administration and staff to use detentions as a consequence for inappropriate behavior. A detention is defined as requiring a student to remain at school beyond the normal school day or eat lunch in an assigned location.

Transportation of students serving an after school detention is the responsibility of the parent or guardian.
