A Handbook for Students, Parents, and Staff

Introduction to the Handbook

The Hanover High School Handbook contains school practices and procedures and delineates the rights and responsibilities of membership in our democratic school community. All edits to the Handbook must be approved by the Council and the school administration and ratified by the Dresden School Board. The rules to editing this document can be found here. To submit comments or suggestions please contact a member of the Council or the administration.

Students are expected to follow the expectations spelled out in the Handbook and should review the following sections in particular:

  • Academic Integrity Policy

  • Acceptable Use Policy

  • Attendance Policy

  • Co-Curricular Code of Conduct

  • The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) Notification

  • Personal Safety

  • Refusal to Follow the Reasonable Instructions of an Adult

  • Sexual Harassment

Policies and procedures of the Handbook apply whenever school is “in session.”  This includes any activity that takes place during the hours of 8-3 (8-2 on Wednesdays), any time students are on school grounds, school functions such as field trips, sports events, or traveling to a school event.  Co-Curricular participants have additional responsibilities under the Co-Curricular Code of Conduct.
