Students will not be allowed to enroll in the Horizon Program until the individual student and his or her parent(s) and/or guardian(s) are present during an admission conference to discuss the placement. This admission conference takes approximately twenty minutes and may be set up as soon as a placement is arranged. Students arriving at the Horizon Program without proper assignment procedures, or without completing the admission conference, will be held out of classes until the requirements have been met.
The Horizon Program will not provide supervision until 8:30 a.m. Classes will begin at 8:30 a.m. and students will be dismissed at 3:10 p.m. (middle school) and 3:35 p.m. (high school). Students will be released from class once their rides have arrived. The Horizon Program will not provide supervision beyond 3:35 p.m. The doors to the building will be locked at that time. Students must be picked up from school no later than 3:35 p.m.
The Horizon Program shares the same calendar (holidays, testing schedule, etc.) as other Barrow County Schools campuses.
Students are expected to arrive at school with appropriate instructional supplies on a daily basis.
If a student is on the Free and Reduced-Price Meal Policy at his or her home school, that status will apply to the Horizon Program as well. Students who do not qualify for the Free and Reduced-Price Meal Policy will be expected to pay. See our School Nutrition information for details.
Barrow County Schools does not provide bus services to or from the Horizon Program unless these services were established through the student’s individualized education plan (IEP) or MVP prior to the student’s assignment to the Horizon Program.
No. Students who are assigned to the Horizon Program are not permitted to participate in sports or extracurricular activities for any Barrow County schools. Students are not permitted on any other Barrow County Schools campus at any time. This includes community activities that take place on a Barrow County Schools campus, such as “Relay for Life." If extenuating circumstances exist, a student and his or her parent(s) and/or guardian(s) may appeal to the Horizon Program Principal for special permission to attend an event. Permission will be given only if both the Horizon Program Principal and the principal of the affected campus are in agreement. Students assigned to the Horizon Program are not permitted to attend any events in which a Barrow County school is a participant, including activities which do not take place on a Barrow County Schools campus.
