Early Release Option
Early release will be defined as students able to return to their home campus prior to the end of their assignment or their 75-day review under certain specified conditions. Specifically, students must have clearly demonstrated exemplary behavior during their entire stay at the OAC.
Early release would be based on:
successful completion of the level system
no suspensions, police interventions, or Guidance Center assignments
no truancies or excessive unexcused absences
requires a recommendation from an OAC administrator
agreement between the home campus principal, OAC principal and the student’s parents
maintain passing grades
students who return to OAC more than once in a school year are not eligible for early release
Students whose early release falls on Monday of the last week of a six weeks grading period will remain at OAC until the end of the six weeks.
Students whose early release falls during the last three weeks of a semester will remain on the OAC campus, but will be allowed to attend after school activities sponsored by the home campus during that time period as long as no disciplinary infractions are committed at the OAC or home campus.
"A student who is required to register as a sex offender and who is placed at the OAC may be placed for a longer period of time as allowed byTEC 37.304 and 37.37305."
