WMS Citizenship Policy
Wayne Middle School Citizenship Policy
Students are in school to receive an education. This education is not only grades earned in classes, but behavior, attendance, and being able to follow the rules set up by the school.
There are certain behaviors that will result in the loss of citizenship for the quarter. Each quarter, students begin with a clean slate in both grades and citizenship. However, absence notices will be carried through the entire school year. (Citizenship for absences and tardies will be quarter by quarter.)
Some of the school rules and policies to remember are the attendance policy, the dress code policy, the electronic/personal device policy, and the discipline expectations that are set in each classroom and the school. If you have any questions about any of these, please feel free to contact Mrs. Stringham, (435)425-3421 or
Below, you will find the citizenship grading scale:
H- To receive an H citizenship grade, students must have fewer than 4 unexcused absences, fewer than 3 tardies, and/or no office referrals for behavior.
S- To receive an S citizenship grade, students can have 4 unexcused absences, fewer than 5 tardies, and/or no office referrals for behavior. An S citizenship grade could also be the result of a student not meeting the expectations set by a teacher in a classroom.
N- To receive an N citizenship grade students can have 5-9 unexcused absences, 5-9 tardies, and/or office referrals that are considered minor. An N citizenship grade could also be the result of a student not meeting expectations set by a teacher in a classroom.
U- To receive a U citizenship grade students will have 10 or more unexcused absences, 10 or more tardies, and/or office referrals that are considered major and resulted in some form of detention or behavior restructure. A U citizenship grade could also be the result of a student not meeting expectations set by a teacher in a classroom.
*There is a difference between excused and unexcused absences.
*Three or more tardies will result in lunch detention.
To qualify as an excused absence the office must have a doctor’s note, a call from parents (when student is sick) at least by 10:00 a.m. the day of illness, a phone call at least 24 hours in advance for family trips, or the absence must be a school sanctioned trip.
