This Student/Parent Handbook is designed to be aligned with Helena Board of Trustees policy. Please be aware that this document is updated annually, while policy adoption and revision are ongoing processes. Therefore, any changes in policy that affect student handbook provisions will be made available to students and parents through newsletters, the District website and /or other communications. These changes will generally super sede provisions found in this handbook that have been made obsolete by newly adopted policy.

Please note that references to policy codes are included to help parents confirm current policy.

In case of conflict between Board policy and any provisions of student handbooks, the provisions of Board policy that were most recently adopted by the Board are to be followed.
