Placement for New Students

A placement assessment is required for every student, age 7 and older. The decision for the placement is based upon the student’s past Persian language education and results of the assessment. Questions about enrollment, placement, and payments should be communicated with the school administration by emailing: dorna@kanoon.info

School Policy

Introduction

The following is the outline of our school policy. A smooth and efficient running of the school requires the constructive cooperation of every person involved. It is assumed that each student and his/her parents will become familiar with, and will adhere to these regulations for the benefit of all.
We believe that regular and continuous parent-teacher communication is the most effective means to improve the overall experience of the student in the school. It is also the best way to avoid behavioral or academic difficulties.

Day Schedule

Youth classes:
Classes begin at 10:30 am on Sundays, in accordance with the academic calendar. Persian language classes are comprised of three segments with a 15-minute recess from 11:30 am to 11:45 am. Regular Persian lessons for children end at 12:30 pm and the enrichment classes begin at 12:30 pm.
Adult classes:
Classes are offered on Sundays from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm.

Textbook and Materials

The school may provide textbooks and handouts for children’s classes. Certain textbooks for children and adult classes may to be purchased by the students. Notebooks, pencils, markers, and other related stationary are the student’s responsibility and should be brought to class every Sunday. We encourage parents to designate a separate bag/backpack for Persian class.

Homework

Each teacher, according to the needs of individual students and the class, determines homework. Please take the homework assignments very seriously, as the weekly intervals of the school may easily lead to fading of the learned materials. Persian is a second language for most of our students and continued practice at home is the only route to ensure a lasting effect.

Contacting the Teachers

Teachers are available for questions and comments at the school on Sundays or during the week via email. Please do not hesitate to speak to the school administrators or the teacher if questions arise.

General Conduct and Discipline

Our goal is to create a positive and safe learning environment within the Atlanta Persian School and the Persian Cultural Center. To that end, students and teachers are required to respect the rights of one another. The Atlanta Persian School has a zero-tolerance policy toward verbal abuse or bullying by anyone. 
 
Immediate suspension may result from, but is not limited to, the following specific offenses:
· Abusive language and/or overt disrespect to teacher(s) or other students
· Dishonesty in any form, including cheating or copying of homework
· Damage to school property and/or unauthorized use of school equipment
· Chronic bullying of peers
· Possession of items that are potentially dangerous, such as pocket knives

Academic conduct and discipline

· Students are expected to maintain a positive, cooperative, and respectful attitude both in and out of the classroom.
· Each student is responsible for his/her homework.
· If the teacher and/or school officials require that a student seek the help of a tutor, a tutor will be arranged and an additional fee will apply.
· In rare cases of unacceptable behavioral issues, the student will receive a warning from the teacher and/or school official(s) followed by notification to the parents. At that time, the parents’ presence may be required at the following class or group activity session. Upon the third warning, the student will be removed from the class and/or group activity. Parents’ further assistance and involvement will be requested in order to correct the situation and to avoid termination of the registration. Please note that the Atlanta Persian School policy requires termination of registration upon the fourth occasion of said unacceptable behavioral issue.

Bringing Items from Home

Parents are strongly advised to prohibit students from bringing to school large amounts of cash and/or other articles of considerable value. The use of cell phones, electronics, and the like are absolutely forbidden during the class time. Students at the Atlanta Persian School are absolutely forbidden from any articles associated with violence or danger.

Absence

Planned absences, such as vacations, need to be reported to the teacher or program administrator via email. Students are responsible for obtaining the missed lesson of the day and completing the corresponding homework.

Drop off and Pick up

The Atlanta Persian School is not responsible for monitoring the students during the drop off and pick up times. Parents, caregivers and/or designated drivers are responsible for the safety of their children and are expected to exit their vehicle and walk the student to their classroom at drop off. Students will be picked up in their classrooms, unless staying for Enrichment classes.

Special Events

Celebrating various Iranian holidays at the Atlanta Persian School is a means of introducing the Persian Culture to the community and to the younger generation of Iranian descent. Yalda, the longest night of the year, and Nowruz, the Iranian New Year, are examples of such events. Additionally, there are a number of other school events that are designed to enrich the language learning experience and strengthen the sense of community and identity. Parents’ involvement in planning and preparation for such events are welcome.

Dress code and Grooming

Students should wear comfortable and clean clothes. Appropriate and tied shoes must be worn to school. No student is permitted to wear shirts that have printings related to sex, drugs, or violence. School officials make the final decision about appropriateness of clothing.

Parent/Teacher Conferences

In order to communicate the progress and learning remark of students, parent/teacher conferences are scheduled in mid-January. Teachers provide the evaluation form for each student. Please be sure to schedule an in-person appointment with the teacher. Communication with the teachers throughout the academic year regarding your child’s academic experience is strongly encouraged. Students receive their second and final evaluation form at the end of the academic year.
