508.2 - Open Night

The Board of Directors (Board) recognizes the valuable student educational and recreational activities offered by local churches and other community organizations.  Therefore, in keeping with good community relations, student school activities will not be scheduled on Wednesday night beyond 5:00 p.m. at the middle school level and beyond 6:00 p.m. at the high school level to the maximum extent possible.  It is the Board’s intent that middle school student practices for all activities be concluded by 5:00 p.m. so that the students are out of the building no later than 5:30 p.m. and that high school student activities and practices are scheduled so that the high school student activity concludes at 6:00 p.m. so that the students are out of the building no later than 6:30 p.m.

The Sunday open gymnasium activity will be scheduled so as to minimize conflicts with other regularly scheduled Sunday activities involving students of the Algona Community School District. 

It shall be the responsibility of the various activity sponsors, coaches, athletic director, and building principals to oversee the scheduling of school activities to maintain maximum compliance with this policy.
