Rayne Catholic Elementary School Parent Cooperation Statement
An integral part of the educational philosophy of Rayne Catholic Elementary School is the conviction that the school assists the parents/guardians in carrying out their primary responsibility of providing for the religious and secular education of their children. An ongoing positive working relationship between the parents/guardians and the school is critical to the success of the school and the students. As part of that working relationship, parents/guardians are expected to be involved as much as possible in the educational process, to refrain from conduct which thwarts the orderly administration and operation of the school, to support and participate in school activities, and to provide instruction to and set positive examples for their children both at home and in the community. While Rayne Catholic Elementary School encourages the constructive exchange of ideas, feedback and suggestions intended to foster the continued growth and improvement of the school, Rayne Catholic Elementary School is ultimately responsible for the orderly administration and operation of the school, including the policies and procedures implemented to achieve the school’s goals. Rayne Catholic Elementary School reserves the right to terminate the enrollment of any student(s) in the event that it is determined by the school’s administration that (1) a positive working relationship between the school and the parents/guardians no longer exists and/or is irreparably damaged or (2) that the parents/guardians have failed to provide the support, assistance and example necessary for the religious and secular education to which each child is entitled. Furthermore, failure on the part of any student and/or parent/guardian to abide by the rules, regulations and policies as outlined in the school handbook may result in termination of the student’s enrollment from the school.
