"Random locker checks will be conducted at all grade levels in all Tipton County Schools. The safety of our students is of utmost importance to the faculty, staff, and administration of Tipton County School System."

The Tennessee legislature has passed new laws regarding school attendance and truancy, which require immediate progressive interventions be implemented upon a student having 5 unexcused absences. Therefore, we have also made changes to our board policy regarding absences. A student will be allowed 5 parent notes per semester. All documentation for absences must be turned into the school no later than 5 days after the student returns. All students that do not meet the expectation of attending school every day class is in session are subject to interventions and referral to Juvenile Court if their attendance still does not fall in compliance as outlined in TCA 49-6-3009.
