In October of 2016, Kurt Sooley, Curt Onstad, Pat McGuigan, and Wilbur Borrero began to built a committee for a discipline committee that is set to meet beginning in January.

On May 16, May 17, and May 18, attendance and discipline committee meetings were held at ACHS. This committee consisted of students, teachers, administrators, and parents. The purpose was to discuss current rules at ACHS and make recommendations for change to the administrative team.

On May 18th, the attendance and discipline committee from ACHS came up with the following: 1. Dress code is not to change 2. Card playing is to be allowed as long as money is not exchanged 3. Tardies: IC will automatically send a notice to parents when the student is late; reward the on-time students, an entry form is filled out every time a student is late - after 5 entry forms, a referral is written 4. Sweat bands should be allowed during school hours

District 117 will continue the conversation about social probation, restorative justice practices, and SB100. We will look to implement consequences that change behavior. Additionally, District 117, will continue to utilize Community Youth Network (CYN), an outside agency, for group counseling as a means to reduce suspensions.
