BCLUW  All-Building Teacher Handbook



It is the responsibility of each staff member to abide by and aid in the enforcement of all rules and regulations as stated in the Student Handbook and adopted by the Board of Education.  It shall be up to each staff member to be familiar with the BCLUW Board policies.  



Notice of Nondiscrimination It is the policy of the BCLUW Community School District not to discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, disability, religion, creed, age (for employment), marital status (for programs), sexual orientation, gender identity and socioeconomic status (for programs) in its educational programs, the school nutrition program, and its employment practices.



Communication concerning individual students, announcements to the teacher, grade books, and similar materials should be kept out of sight of students! Please keep all passwords for electronic access private and log out of your computer if you are leaving the room. (rev. 6/12)



Staff members are expected to devote themselves to the development of the educational team and to cooperate with all staff for the effective enforcement of the rules and order in and about the buildings and on the school ground.                                                                                                                                       

The successful functioning of a school depends upon the cooperation of the staff in the system.  One of the prerequisites of any school staff is her/his ability to get along with fellow workers.



All complaints should be made to the immediate supervisor.  There is a formal grievance procedure in the master contract between the Board of Education and the local bargaining unit. 



Each teacher shall be under the general direction of the Superintendent of Schools and immediately responsible to the principal for carrying out the policies of the Board of Education as they relate to the function of the school, to the classroom and to the immediate contact with pupils and parents.  The teachers' specific responsibilities are:

1. To provide guidance to the pupils which will promote their welfare and their proper  educational development.

2. To administer the classroom and its programs.

B.    No student is to receive a failing grade simply because they do not have the ability. No student is to be failed without first consulting the principal. 

C.    All parent conferences concerning retention are to be attended by the building principal.



These are to be completed for each student failing, near failing, or performing significantly below their capabilities. Complete the report on the computer grading system and turn in to the office by the date given. They may be sent earlier, however, the bulk of them should be taken care of at this time. You may send one every week, or as many as you think are necessary. Please be sure that you indicate both the causes for deficiency and recommendationsNo student should be failed for the quarter who's parent has not been sent a deficiency report. (Use incomplete for two weeks.)



A goal is for each teacher to send home, or make a call home, at least once a week about a positive accomplishment of a student. Try to spread these around.



Will be completed according to approved district procedures and law.



Full-time employees - the total workday shall consist of not more than eight consecutive hours, except as stated in Section II.  Flex-time will be available with administrative and individual employee approval.  Flex-time does not apply for teacher inservice and unexpected meetings. Flex schedules must be approved by building principal. No teacher may leave until all buses are gone.

Teachers are not to leave the building unless there are extenuating circumstances, excluding lunch (22 minutes) and then only with the notification of the office.



Teachers are required to attend or submit written description of student performance. You are responsible for information presented at a staffing. If you are absent, you must check with the resource teacher for that information.  You are to submit weekly reports to the resource teacher if they are requested and are a part of the student's IEP.



1. A teacher must be aware of the dangers of acting beyond the scope of his/her delegated authority; in loco parentis does not extend beyond matters of conduct and discipline.

2. A teacher increases the risk of legal action when he/she assigns pupils to tasks beyond the course of study.

3. While the Board is primarily responsible for equipment, the teacher must see that the equipment is used in a safe manner.

4.  A teacher must exert reasonable care to avoid injury; he/she is expected to foresee the danger of injury as a normal person would.

5. If dangerous activities are to be performed by students, the teacher is expected to increase the amount of care to avoid injury.

6.  A teacher must report unsafe conditions to authorities; failure to do so constitutes an act of omission.

7.  Do not leave students unattended. A teacher increases the risk of liability when he/she leaves a student unattended.

8.  Visibility will be maintained into classrooms at all times.

9.  Classroom control needs to be maintained.



Teachers are to accompany their groups to the assembly.   Check with the supervisors for seating arrangements.  Teachers are to sit among the students to keep order.



A.   You are to be either in your doorway or out in the hall between classes and, also, check a respective restroom nearest you. No one is to be in the teacher's workroom during this time (8:15-8:30 and 3:30-3:40).

B.   You are to keep a log indicating what students leave your room during class, what time they leave and return, and where they go.  This is to be done only when they get a drink, go to their locker, or go to the restroom.  Students in the hall for any other reason when a class is in session should have a pass in their possession.

C.   All teachers will be involved in supervision of the school grounds before and after school each day. 

D.   Teachers are not to leave classes to run tests or secure supplies from the office. The time before classes in the morning and after school in the afternoon should be used for this purpose so that one would not have to do this on scheduled class time. 

E.   Teachers, will be assigned to morning duty on a rotating basis.

F.    Teachers, will be assigned to a thirty-minute school detention period. This will be done according to other school duties so everyone will have an equal assignment.



A.   Each staff member is responsible for the discipline they maintain with students. Many problems can be prevented by letting the students know what you expect of them and by being fair. Only after the teacher has done everything reasonable to handle the situation should the teacher send insubordinate students to the principal.  It might be wise to counsel the student and if necessary, keep the student after school for detention. Different procedures work better than others for different teachers and situations. Find what works best for you.

B.   Do not cause physical harm to a student unless it is the result of defending yourself. State Laws prohibit this form of disciplining a student.

C.   Don't send students to the principal for minor infractions unless they become habitual.

D.   Discuss disciplinary problems with the principal and keep the principal informed. Don't hesitate to ask for help and advice.

E.   Remember, disciplinary problems may be avoided by being consistent and predictable. Prevent boredom, a primary cause of discipline problems, by keeping all students involved and occupied at their own level of attainment.

F.   Each time you send a student to the principal's office, you, for your own protection, are required to fill out an anecdotal report describing the situation.

G.   The class for which a student has been sent to the office for disciplinary reasons is to be regarded as an unexcused absence.



Check with the principal in regard to scheduling any activity. All events must be posted on the principal's calendar at least five days prior. Permission for trips late in the spring may not be granted.   Trips of more than one period in length may not be granted after mid-May. The manager of the cafeteria should be notified about any activity that would affect the number of students eating lunch.  Note: The principal will not approve any event unless first approved by the faculty sponsor and submitted in writing at least one week prior to the date requested.          

 A description on any out-of-district event should be sent home with the student. Do not drive your own car on trips or to meetings and expect to get paid mileage, unless first approved by the office.

For students in grades 9-12 advance make-up forms must be completed anytime a student will be missing a class.  These forms are due in the office before the student can go on the trip or participate in the activity.

Attempts shall be made to see that there is at least one male, and one female adult chaperone among the bus driver, parents, and teachers on the field trip. It is recommended that there be a minimum of one chaperone for every 10-15 students.



A.    Requisitioning of supplies: You must first gain the principal's approval of your requisition which will then be sent to the superintendents office. The school will not be responsible for payment of books, equipment, or supplies ordered without approval. Plan early for next year's budget  request.                                                                                                                                                               

B.    Receiving supplies: If you unpack materials or supplies received in the mail, please turn the packing slip in to the principal's secretary.

D.    Obtain receipts for all expenditures while on a school trip for which the school is paying expenses.



There are various audio-visual aids available to implement the educational program.  Educational videos should be requisitioned as soon as possible in order to assure their availability. (rev 6/12)

All A-V materials have been cataloged through the media center.  When taking materials from the media center, please make sure they are checked out and returned as soon as you are through so others may use them.  These requests are not to keep you from using materials but as an attempt at better inventory control for the benefit of all.

Educational television programs are available at all grade levels.  Guides are in the library office if you need one.  The librarian will also tape programs for you.



Educational videos properly used are an important and a valuable teaching aid.  Improperly used, these videos are a waste of time to both teacher and students, and a great waste of time for the school.  In order to encourage the proper use of videos, the following are required in their use:

1. Do preview the video and prepare yourself before showing it to your students.  If you don't have time to preview it, then you shouldn't use it.  This is especially true of free videos.

 2.  Do be certain that there is a definite relation between the video and your instructional objectives and not to entertain.

3. Do prepare your class to see the video by giving them specific things to look for in the  video or questions to answer.

4. Do follow up with an immediate discussion of the content.  No video should be shown in class unless the class is prepared for it and there is a follow-up.

 5. Do show the videos during your regular class period.  Grade teachers showing videos on social studies should use this film during social studies class period, if at all possible.

6. Remember that we can only justify videos as they help us do a better job achieving out educational objectives.  Videos are not an end in themselves.

7. Do practice continually to improve the technique of teaching with videos.  If you have not had a course in visual aids, you should at least get hold of a book on the use of them.

 8. Any movies / media with sexual content, extreme violence, or profanity shall not be shown without the building principal's permission.



Textbooks are to be checked out to the students by the teacher and checked in by the same instructor at the end of the school year or whenever they are no longer needed. To check out a textbook the number and name of the text and the student's name should be recorded on the form provided by the office.  Have the student record the condition of the text on the form and return the form to you. This form will then give you a guide for determining whether a fine should be assessed when the book is checked in.  Be sure that all textbooks are numbered and have the school name stamped on them. Number textbooks as follows: 1-92, 2-92, 3-92, etc.  (indicating the year they were purchased.)  

The following suggested guidelines for abuse of textbooks may be used when they are checked in: 

  $ .10 per page for writing in the text;  $ .25 per page for torn page; $5.00 for books that need to be re-bound (broken backs and ruined covers and pages ready to fall out.)

If the book is ruined or lost the CHARGE is the replacement cost of the book (see office).


No funds are to be raised by collection from the pupils unless approval is given by the office beforehand.  If collections are made, they should be placed in the secretary's hands, so the office can see that payment is made and a receipt is obtained to show payment.  Never leave money in your desk!



Medicines shall not be given to students without the written consent of the parents. Verbal consent on a single use basis will be accepted.  All medication must be dispensed through the nurse's office by an employee who has had the medication training session. 


Any announcements you wish to be included must be on the secretary's desk before the building deadline on the day you want it announced or earlier if possible. The announcements will be sent electronically and are to be read to the students. 


Each teacher is responsible for preparing their lesson plans one week in advance. Your plans need not be in great detail but should be sufficient to provide a substitute teacher with definite information, should a substitute be necessary. Your plans are to be available at all times and each are to be handed in or on the server at the principal's by Monday. 



Keep one copy of your classroom seating chart or list available so that the supervisor can take attendance if you are absent. 


 Call your supervisor as close to 6:00 a.m. as possible. Substitutes will be hired to fill in for teachers anticipating extended periods of absence. For shorter periods of absence other teachers in the building may be asked to supervise during one of them.


Time schedules for classes, lunch, recess, and the end of the day dismissal are to be strictly observed. It is not fair to other people in the school when one staff member  allows the students to ignore those schedules, even for as little as one minute.


Requests for a bus or van should be at least 5 days in advance.


Staff may not smoke in the sight of students while fulfilling their contracted duties. School policy does not allow smoking on school grounds at anytime.  WE ARE A TOBACCO FREE ENVIRONMENT. 


MS & HS classrooms should be locked when the teacher is not present. Staff members need to insure that all doors and windows are locked and shut tightly at the end of each school day, nights, and weekends. Directors of after-school activities should be the last to leave the building. If you do not know if you are the last to leave, lock up as if you were!             


1.  Permission is to be obtained from the supervisor or superintendent for the use of the building for other than regular school activities.

2.  Teachers are expected to instruct their pupils in the proper use of buildings and equipment, to teach respect for public property, and to carry out the rules and regulations adopted for their proper operation, use and care.

3.  The following procedures should be observed:

A. Use of Equipment

1) School keys are not to be loaned to anyone.

2) Anyone outside the school system must receive permission from the building principal, AD or superintendent in order to use any school equipment or materials.

3) Audio-visual materials and equipment can be checked out from the media center.

4) Students should receive instructions before they are allowed to operate  equipment.

5) Please notify the librarian if equipment is not working correctly.

B. Care of Rooms

1) Rooms should be kept neat and orderly at all times

2) Never leave your room in a disorderly fashion.

3) A few minutes before dismissal should be taken so the pupils can clean up scraps of paper around their desks.

4) Place books on a desk so they will not fall off easily.

5) Inform the custodian of things that need attention.

6) Have students place their chairs on their desks before being dismissed.

7)   Staff should not ask the custodians to do jobs for them unless they have previously  cleared their request with the principal. If something needs to be repaired or needs non-routine attention by the custodian, fill out a work order request in the office and submit it to the principal or superintendent for approval.



All individuals renewing a license or authorization issued by the Board of Educational Examiners are considered "Mandatory Reporters", and must complete an approved "Mandatory Child and Dependent Adult Abuse Reporter Training" program.  The AEA provides this training through an online format.



The BCLUW School Board has adopted a policy #403.5 prohibiting harassment of any kind by students or staff.  This includes but is not limited to sexual harassment, physical harassment such as hitting, pushing, etc., and verbal harassment such as name calling, notes, etc.  If you as a parent or student feel harassment is taking place, report this to your building principal.  Anyone wishing a copy of this policy may pick one up at the central office or any building level office.



Stealing is not a common problem, but it does happen occasionally.  Every precaution should be taken to keep such activity at a minimum.  Teach your students the following habits:

1. Do not bring money to school unless it is needed at school that day.  

2. Students should not leave money  or other valuable items in their desks or in their lockers.  This applies to teachers also.  Such items should be kept in the desk or file, and the desk or file should be kept locked at all times whenever it contains such items.

3. Students should not place billfolds or other items on the stage, on the bleachers, on benches, or in any unattended rooms during gym classes, recess or similar  times.

4. Students should be made aware of the possibility of loss or theft at all times.

5. Gym shoes and all outer wear should be marked with the students' names.

If a theft does occur, please notify the supervisor immediately.  Do not wait until a break, but notify him/her the moment the theft has been discovered.


Health information and records will comply with FERPA and HIPPA regulations. Health information will be confidential and shared with staff on a "need to know" basis.                                                                                                                                                                                               


Sponsors and advisors are responsible for the enforcement of the requirements as stated in the student handbook and in the Good Conduct Policy. Make sure you are familiar with  these requirements.


A.    Attendance is to be done on JMC each period.

B.    Anyone present that has been reported absent should have an admit slip from the office or be sent after one.  Do not admit a student to your class who has been absent the day before unless they have an admit slip from the principal's office, stating whether the absence was excused or unexcused.






Pupils should be promoted on the basis of careful study and analysis of what seems best for each individual.  Retention should be based on achievement, age, size, maturity, emotional stability and social adjustment.   

Parents should be informed as early as possible that retention may be a possibility for their child.  Parents should be aware of their child's weaknesses, and that a cooperative effort be made by the teacher and parent to take corrective measures to overcome a child's weaknesses.     

The cooperation of the parents is a necessary ingredient to successful retention, but the school must reserve the right to make the final decision.


Discourage the pupils' use of the telephone.

If it becomes necessary to call a parent because of illness of a child, the secretary, if on duty, will make the call and care for the child until his/her parents arrive.  Teachers should also check to make sure these children are not still at school when the busses are dismissed.

Telephone calls to teachers during class hours, except in emergencies, cannot be honored, but the teacher will be notified by note in his/her mailbox.

It is expected that the teacher will not use the phone for his/her own personal calls during the day unless it is absolutely necessary.



The head librarian will assign and supervise the activities of the aides and set down rules and procedures for the library.


For students withdrawing from school the following items should be completed:

1. Report card.

2. Report of progress including the textbooks we use and materials completed.

3. The cumulative record should be returned to the office.  The child's records will be  mailed to the receiving school.  Do not send the folder with the child.

4.  Immunization card.



All items of a lost and found nature will be located in the back foyer.  All clothing items will be placed in a box where students may identify the lost articles. Small valuables lost and found are kept in the secretaries' office.



Pupils who are suspected of having any contagious disease should be brought to the attention of the office immediately and should not be permitted to expose other students.  Parents must be contacted through the office before the child is sent home.  As a general rule, the secretary or nurse will be responsible for the contacting of parents and for the care of the student until he/she goes home. The school will not make a diagnosis as this is the job of the family doctor.


LEAVING THE SCHOOL GROUNDS DURING THE DAY                                                       

Teachers should refer all requests for the release of children to the office.  All students are to remain in class until picked up by their parents.



All teachers are expected to participate in corridor supervision in the morning, at noon, and at recess.   When one teacher from each grade level is on hall, bus or playground duty, the other teacher is to supervise both classrooms.  Room teachers are responsible for their classes going to music, physical education, art and recess.  In entering, leaving or passing within the building, children are to walk.  In passing within the building classes are to be kept together.

Absolute consistency in hall supervision will tend to eliminate undesirable forms of behavior, such as running down hallways, yelling and general "horseplay".  Consistent handling of these problems by all teachers is the only way they can be reduced to a minimum.  If a teacher sees an infraction of regulations or disorderly conduct, that teacher should take necessary steps to halt the infraction.  This should be done regardless of who the student or class might be.  Remember, in the hallways, and on the playground, we supervise all students at all times -- not just those from our class.  No teacher should take offense when her/his class or one of her/his students is reprimanded by another teacher for an infraction.  That teacher is merely accepting and performing her/his duty and there is nothing personal involved.  A very important part of our job is done in the halls of our school and on its playground.  Many of the difficulties that start on the playground or in unsupervised halls carry over into the classroom.


1. Students are to take the responsibility of conducting themselves in a courteous manner.

2. Children should be orderly in line and not push.

3. Children are given ample time to eat; they do not need to hurry but by the same token they must not loiter and idle time by excessive visiting.

4. Students are required to eat their lunch in the cafeteria whether they bring it from home or buy it at school.  No food is to be taken out of the lunchroom.

5.Teachers should see to it that they adhere to the lunchroom arrival time for their room as closely as possible to prevent other rooms from standing in line and facilitate the movement of all rooms on time.  Teachers should wait until students are seated before leaving the lunchroom.

6. A lunchroom schedule will be furnished to each teacher.

7. All supervisors are to be on the playground or in the gymnasium when students are scheduled in these areas.  If for any reason supervisors need to leave these areas, arrangements should be made for another supervisor to cover.  It is best to supervise these areas from a location that allows you to see all students.



Your supervisor should be notified of grave misconduct of pupils such as skipping school, stealing, injuries due to carelessness or anger, immoralities, starting fires, smoking, consistent tardiness, etc.

Teachers should see to it that areas other than their classroom, such as the gym, auditorium, corridors, lavatories, lunchroom, etc. are kept neat, orderly, and clean when being used by their pupils.  Any irregularities such as writing on walls, marred desks, broken chairs, etc. should be reported to the supervisor.  Pupils will be fined for any misuse or destruction of school property.  Discipline is every teacher's business.  If you see a child misbehaving in halls, lunchroom, gym, playground, etc. make it your business to call him/her on it even though he/she is not from your room.

Permission to use the telephone during class time should not be granted except in cases of health or safety emergency.         

For class movements, dismissals, etc. the pupils should be formed in lines within the classroom and passed, when in order, at a speed no faster than is conducive to good order.  Whenever your class goes to some other part of the building, accompany them.  No class or any part of it should be left any place unsupervised.

The teacher usually should use classroom conversational voice even when correcting a child.  Discipline should not be emotionalized but should be intelligently approached.  Teachers should, however, display normal daily emotions so the child learns that she/he is a normal human being.


1. Permanent record cards will be kept in the principal's office.

2. Permanent records located in the building office must be up-to-date.


These must be handed out during the week following the close of the nine weeks.


Teachers will keep official record of attendance in their own rooms.


Middle School Staff Section



On the outside of the homeroom envelope, paperclip name of student turning in money, amount, and student account number. Place any money collected in the envelope also. See that the envelope is turned in to the office during homeroom.   During the afternoon, the envelope will be returned to your mailbox in the office. Read the announcements.


Middle school practice times must be scheduled according to the departure time of the shuttle bus which is 5:10 or 5:20 p.m.   Morning practice times are discouraged, and should be kept to a minimum as shuttle busses are not available at this time. 

High School Section




1.     Practice in double shifts (this pertains primarily to basketball)

 a.   The first shift must be finished and out of the building at 6:05 p.m

b.   The second shift must be finished and out of the building at 6:45 p.m. (except for the 6:00 p.m. limit on Wednesday)

2.     Practice in single shift

a.   All players in sports other than football and basketball must be finished and ready to depart with their parents from the Conrad Center at 5:10 p.m.; therefore, the buses will have to leave the out-of-Conrad centers in time to accomplish this goal.

b.   Football players must be finished and out of the building by 6:00 p.m.

3.     Students who have participated in an approved out-of-district scrimmage on a school day must be finished and ready to depart from the Conrad Center by 7:30 p.m.

5.     Practices may not be scheduled during parent-teacher conferences.

6.     Review practices during hot periods with administration.

7.     When school is dismissed for inclement weather, all students must be sent home immediately. 

8.     When school is cancelled for the day due to inclement weather and the weather improves during the day, practices may be cleared through the Superintendent. 



Open Night (Wednesday evening), Sunday, and Holidays



The board believes student participation in the student activity program provided by the district needs to be balanced with the need to provide time for families and other activities for students. Therefore, in order to promote this balance for students, families, and employees, the board sets aside Wednesday evenings after 6:00 p.m. during the school year as times that the district will refrain from scheduling school sponsored functions, meetings, activities, or practices (mandatory or voluntary).  On Sundays during the school year, open gym and limited school sponsored activity practices may be held, but are to be within a window of time that begins no earlier than 5:00 P.M. and ends no later than 8:00 P.M.


In rare cases, activities may be scheduled by state or national associations that intrude on the time set aside for families. The superintendent shall be empowered to make exceptions to this restriction when scheduling is beyond the control of the district.


AAU teams and other civic groups are permitted to use district facilities on Wednesday evenings after 6:00 or Sundays after 1:00 by paying the appropriate rental fee if required, and scheduling the facility through the high school activities secretary.



No school activities, events, practices, or open gym type opportunities are to be held on the following holidays: Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years Day, Easter, and the 4th of July.  On Labor Day, no activities or practices will begin prior to 4:00 PM.



Please keep in mind that MUSIC has priority before school, ATHLETICS after school and DRAMA, FCCLA, ETC. after 6:30 p.m.


Sponsors and advisors of student groups are responsible for the enforcement of the requirements as stated in the student handbook.
