AHS’s goal is to provide a positive learning environment for all students. The following consequences will be applied for violations of the Student Behavior Handbook. All provisions of the Albuquerque Public Schools Student Behavior Handbook will be enforced. Disciplinary infractions may require parent conferences and/or suspensions based on the severity of the infraction. Make-up work will be allowed for short-term suspensions only. It is the student’s responsibility to request make-up assignments.
Long-term suspensions may occur as a result of violations as defined in the Student Behavior Handbook.
Scope of In-School Suspension (ISS)
The ISS classroom serves several different functions here at Albuquerque High School. There are four main functions of ISS: Classroom, Tardy Enforcement, Lunch Detention and Saturday School.
ISS is reserved for students who do not conduct themselves according to the mandates in the AHS Handbook. Students assigned to ISS are those who are late and unable to obtain a pass, are removed from class due to poor behavior, or are caught ditching. It is also used as an alternative to Out of School Suspension.
- Students who are assigned lunch detention due to excessive tardies will report to ISS on the specified date.
- Students are not allowed to have friends attend lunch detention.
Saturday school serves as a disciplinary action and is assigned for infraction of school rules. Its main purpose serves as a last resort before Out of School Suspension. Saturday school occurs in the lecture hall between the hours of 8 a.m. to 10 a.m. In Saturday school, students are required to bring work assigned in class. If they have a substantial amount they are to use the time to finish or get ahead on assignments. If a student does not have any work they are assigned campus beautification.
