Philosophy

Student parking on campus is a privilege that is reserved for seniors only. The privilege is based on academic achievement, appropriate citizenship, and attendance to school and to classes, as well as completion of the Young Drivers Safety Seminar. In order to gain the privilege of parking on campus, students are expected to exhibit responsible behavior and appropriate attendance patterns that are necessary for success in academics, work, and co-curricular activities. To that end, what follows are the criteria that will be used to determine eligibility for and retention of school parking privileges.

Young Driver Safety Seminar

All students applying for a parking permit are required to attend the Young Drivers Safety Seminar that is offered throughout the spring and summer at the high school. Call 845-460-7000, ext. 7800 or visit http://mw.k12.ny.us for dates and information.

Academic Criteria

Students must demonstrate academic success. Parking permits will be rescinded from students who fail more than one course on their report card. If they are passing all courses on the next report card, their parking privilege may be reinstated. Additionally, students who are failing 2 or more courses at quarter mid-point will have their parking suspended. Students applying for parking privileges must be seniors who are eligible to graduate in the current school year.
NOTE: Seniors who failed more than one course during the 4th quarter in the year preceding the application for a parking permit will not be eligible to apply for a parking permit. The privilege may be gained by passing the courses in summer school or by demonstrating satisfactory grades on the first progress report.

Attendance Criteria

  • Students must be in regular attendance to school. Students who have accumulated five (5) or more illegal absences and/or have been assigned an Audit Grade in one subject will lose their parking privilege. Students who are late to school five (5) or more times or late to their first class will lose their parking privilege. Students, upon exhibiting appropriate attendance patterns in the next five (5) week period, may have their parking privilege reinstated.
  • Students must be in regular attendance to class. Parking permits will be rescinded from students who have three (3) or more incidents of cutting classes. Students with no instances of cutting in the next five (5) week period may have their parking privilege reinstated. Additionally, parking permits will be rescinded from students who chronically cut class.
  • Early Dismissal/Late Arrival to School for students with parking privileges is permitted only after a note from a parent/guardian is submitted to the House Office and the reason stated has been verified by administration. Permits will be rescinded from students who leave the school grounds unauthorized.
  • Students who have Extended Early Dismissal privileges (see Student Handbook for details) must carry the Dismissal Card with them, and be able to furnish it upon request. Extended Early Dismissal students are expected to sign out from the Attendance Office daily. Parking permits will be rescinded from students with Extended Early Dismissal privileges who drive another student off of school grounds before the end of the school day.
    Citizenship Criteria
  • Students must follow all campus parking regulations. Students who violate the Monroe-Woodbury High School parking regulations are subject to the permanent revocation of their parking permit. See the “Student Parking Regulations” for more details.
  • Students must exhibit appropriate conduct as outlined in the Student Handbook. Students who have been assigned in-school suspension for three (3) days or more, or assigned in-school suspension on two (2) separate occasions within a five (5) week period will lose their parking privilege. Students who have been assigned out-of-school suspension for any reason will lose their parking privilege. Additionally, students who have accumulated three (3) or more referrals within a five (5) week period will also lose their parking privilege. Students must speak with their House Administrator for any possible reinstatement of parking privileges.
  • Students who have been suspended for use, possession, or sale of drugs or alcohol or who otherwise break the law, or who have been suspended for gross insubordination while a Monroe-Woodbury High School student will have their parking privileges suspended indefinitely.

NOTE: Seniors who have been assigned in-school or out-of-school suspension for three days or more, during the 4th quarter in the year preceding the application for a parking permit will not be eligible to receive a parking permit. These seniors may apply for a permit and be placed on the waiting list. Their applications will be reviewed after the first five (5) weeks of school.
