Student Check -Out Procedure (Kentucky Law: KRS 159.010 and KRS 159.180)
Students eighteen (18) years or older may check themselves out; however, the absence may be excused or unexcused as determined by the building principal or designee.  An unexcused check out may result in a consequence under the Code of Acceptable Behavior & Discipline for skipping or other applicable offenses as determined by the building principal.
Therefore, here is the action that will be taken at Hopkinsville HS.
No longer is an 18 year old student allowed to check themselves out of school and then return without an excused note (i.e. doctor, court etc...).  If students do not return with an excused note, then this will be counted as an unexcused absence and will result in disciplinary action per the code of conduct book.  Names will be given to and adminstrator and they will notify their parent that they checked out and did not return with an excused note.  Disciplinary action will be to revoke driving privileges for 3 weeks and Suspension for leaving school grounds if the appropriate documentation is not provided.
