We have a variety of tools and resources to assist families. Here you'll find school policy documents, the parent/student handbook, and other helpful references to return to throughout the school year.

You'll also find information about policies relating to our program and your school district, and the McFarland School District. Please bookmark this page, or download and print the document so you'll have it handy should you need to consult it.

Bullying Policy

We believe that a safe and secure educational environment is necessary for students to learn and achieve. It is our highest priority to provide an environment that is safe, secure and conducive to learning. Demonstration of appropriate behavior, treating others with respect, and refusing to tolerate harassment or bullying is expected of students, administrators, parents, faculty, staff, visitors, and volunteers.
