RE: Amendment to The Woodlands College Park High School Student Handbook
Date: November 10, 2014
The following amendments to The Woodlands College Park High School Student Handbook are effective immediately.
1. The following section will replace “Parking Regulations” in The Woodlands College Park High School Student Handbook:
Parking at College Park High School is a privilege. Spaces are limited and will be given out using a priority selection process.
Priority for parking spaces will be in the following order:
1. Seniors and Juniors that have been NEAT (Never Ever Absent or Tardy) for the entire Spring 2015 semester will receive first priority for parking. Seniors and then Juniors.
2. Seniors and Juniors with 3 or fewer absences from the previous (Spring 2015) semester. Seniors and then Juniors will receive parking spaces per number of absences up to 3. 1 absence has priority over 2 absences and so on.
Students who choose to share a parking space with another licensed junior or senior student. Senior sharers will receive priority followed by Junior sharers. If either of the sharing drivers is a Senior, they will receive the better parking spot.
3. Senior singles
4. Junior singles.
Absences not counted in semester total: Health Care Professional (HCP), Field Trip (FT), UIL events (UIL), Religious Holidays (REL), Extra-Curricular (EC), Special Event on Campus (SEV), Funeral (FRL), College Visit (CV).
A vehicle registration application will be filled out by each student wanting to receive a parking permit. All students must attend the Drivers Safety and Orientation course each year before a parking permit will be issued. Cost of the parking tag is $75.00 and must be paid before the tag can be issued.
v Must have parking permit displayed (rearview mirror) – only one tag is issued for each space
v Only vehicles registered for that space will be allowed to park in that space.
v New vehicles must be registered before school starts at 7:20 with the Associate Principal for Administration.
v Student’s will not be given a pass to class and can be considered tardy or absent for not following this policy.
v No parking in handicap spaces without a tag from the Associate Principal for Administration.
v Student vehicles will be towed if parked in fire zones, bus ramps or visitor parking area.
v Speed limit for all parking lots is 10 mph.
v While in the parking lot all occupants of vehicles shall be seated and wear safety belts (cannot ride in beds of pickups or on tops of vehicles)
v If a student parks on campus during school hours while on parking suspension his/her vehicle will be towed.
Suspension of Parking (10 school days)
v Any moving violation.
v Any parking violation.
v Unregistered vehicle.
v Unauthorized use of personal vehicle during school hours.
v Ten total tardies including “free tardies”. Tardies are tallied cumulatively from the beginning of the year.
v DAEP assignment – to begin when student returns to TWCP campus.
v Registered in more than one parking space.
Permanent loss of Parking
v Attempt to remove or damage a boot on vehicle.
v 20 tardies including “free tardies”. Tardies are tallied cumulatively from the beginning of the year.
v Second DAEP assignment.
v Second Truancy.
v Hangtag borrowed, traded, stolen, sold, lost or given away will result in all parties involved losing parking.
v Parking while serving a parking suspension.
v Any combination or repeated offenses for temporary suspensions will result in permanent loss of parking.
Special Parking Circumstances
v A temporary parking space will be issued in case of a doctor’s appointment, temporary handicap or other situations beyond the control of the student, if 24 hours’ notice is given.
v A temporary space will not be given for a student who has missed the bus, missed their ride with a partner etc.
v No students are to park in visitors parking for any reason
v If a student registers for a parking space after the school year has begun and has one truancy on record he/she may be issued a parking space but it will be revoked for any one violation after the effective date of issuance.
Parking at The Woodlands College Park High School is a privilege and not a right. Conroe I.S.D. provides bus transportation. Therefore, we are not obligated to furnish parking for students. Parking privileges are only for registered students at their respective campuses. A parking fee is charged at TWCPHS. If parking is permanently suspended during the school year no money will be refunded at any time. Any vehicle booted will receive a $10.00 fine plus suspension. Additional parking suspensions/sanctions may be assigned at the discretion of the grade level principals.
Just a reminder all information is also on our website: http://twcp.conroeisd.net
