SWHS seniors get OK to leave campus

Seniors at South Whidbey High School will be allowed to leave the campus during the school day.

At Wednesday’s school board meeting, officials agreed to a request by senior class president Claire Hofius for off-campus privileges for the class of 2012.

Every year, the burden is on South Whidbey seniors to present an off-campus proposal to the board. The proposal includes student requirements and guidelines for getting and losing the privilege. In past years, the requests have been nearly identical.

This year’s 2012 proposal included a “progress clause,” however.

Assistant Principal Scott Mauk said the senior officers didn’t want off-campus rights to create a club for students with 3.0 grade point averages or higher. Now, students who improve their semester GPAs (not cumulative) by .5 and comply with the other requirements will be reconsidered for the right to leave campus.
