To park on campus, students must obtain a parking permit that will be displayed at all times that the student’s vehicle is on campus. If the student drives more than one vehicle, the permit can be transferred to other vehicles. Vehicles with no permit, or vehicles parked in unassigned spaces, may be towed and the driver may face disciplinary action. All student vehicles will be parked in the student parking lot in assigned spaces. Student parking permits will cost $10.00 per student. Parking will be on a first come, first served basis. Students must present a driver’s license, proof of insurance, and tag number to obtain a parking permit. The parents of students who drive motor vehicles to school will be responsible for loss, accidents, and conduct of the student driver. Students driving to school are to park properly, lock their vehicles, and leave the parking area immediately. Students may return to their cars during the day ONLY with written consent of an administrator. Students must park in the area designated for student parking. Driving privileges will be denied if operation of vehicles does not comply within safety regulations. The Charlton County Board of Education endeavors to provide a safe and secure environment for all students. The Board authorizes reasonable searches of students’ cars or any car on campus during operating hours. The Principal or his authorized representative possesses the authority to conduct an auto search. Such searches shall be based on reasonable suspicion of the presence of unlawful items.
Driving and/or parking on the campus of CCHS is a privilege and not a right. Students that accumulate four or more unexcused absences in a nine weeks grading period will have their driving privileges suspended for the remainder of the nine weeks and the following nine weeks. Students that improve attendance during the suspension may have their privileges re-instated.
