Junior High/High School Student Planner/Handbook
We require students to purchase and use the school's academic planner. It is an important means of communication between school and home as well as a place for students to record their assignments and projects. It also includes the Clark Student Handbook, which details school rules and policies.

Tips for parents/families:
- Parents should check the planner daily. In addition to assignments, school/community events such as detention assignments, behavioral or health concerns, individual commendations, Families For Clark (PTO) meetings, and fundraising opportunities should be noted in the planner.
- Parents should help their child learn to use the planner efficiently. At the beginning of the year, develop good habits. Spend a few minutes each evening looking through the planner. (Evenings are better than the rushed pace of the mornings.)
- Add important family events and check over homework assignments. Then help your student begin homework.
- Check off work with your child as he/she finishes it. Write questions to the teacher, if needed. As your child becomes more skilled with using his/her planner and as good habits are demonstrated, a weekly check will suffice.
