Students

Students are the reason public schools exist.  In the words of the U.S. Supreme Court, "In these days, it is doubtful that any child may reasonably be expected to succeed in life if he is denied the opportunity of an education."  School board policies regarding students are found in the TASB Policy Manual at the codes beginning with the letter "F."
