The purpose of this handbook is to inform parents and students of the policies, procedures, and operations of BASIS Schools (the School). The content of this book is overseen by the Relevant School Governance Entity (Arizona; Texas; Washington, DC). It presents information highlighting School policies and guidelines necessary for the academic achievement, safety, welfare, and well-being of our students. For the purposes of this handbook, the term parent is used to indicate the student’s caregiver(s) as identified in the student’s registration documents as the person or people with whom the student resides. The parent is required to review the contents of this handbook and share appropriate information with his/her child. Signing the handbook contract is a necessary condition for the student to be enrolled in a BASIS School and indicates that both the student and parent understand and agree to abide by all school policies and rules. Parents who have not yet received and completed the handbook contract may contact the front office for an additional copy.
