Student Expectations

Student Expectations

CIMS has a policy of behavior expectations called Cougar PRIDE. As a good citizen of CIMS, students are expected to follow our motto of P (Preparation), R (respect), I (integrity), D (dedication) and E (Engagement).
Pride Matrix

These PRIDE expectations vary by school location, as seen in the matrix above. Students who are caught following the Cougar PRIDE expectations will be rewarded with daily, weekly and monthly rewards. Those found breaking the rules will be given a series of progressive violations that could possibly result in their removal from CIMS.

 

TARDIES

Students who are tardy will receive the following consequences:

3rd tardy - Intervention with counselor and parent phone call.

6th tardy - Intervention with AP attendance contract and parent conference.

9th tardy - Consider release from CIMS.

With the new program, CIMS will no longer be conducting tardy sweeps. Those students who are late for class will receive an ART (Academic Recovery Time) invitation. Those students will report to Mr. Gervais in room 1301 to explain what happened and possibly get the tardy excused. Each tardy will result in a 15-minute study hall after school.  Four tardies = 1 hour of study hall time. If a student does not show up for their ART session, it will become an automatic hour of study hall time. 

 

DRESS CODE

Students will receive rewards for being in compliance and consistent consequences for being out of compliance.

1st violation = warning

2-4th violation = detention and phone call to parents

5th violation = Saturday school, parent conference and behavior contract

6th violation = Consider release from CIMS

All students should be well aware of our dress code policies.
If you have any doubt, please refer to our dress code policy here.
