Fairview Middles School Handbook
Welcome to Fairview Middle School for the 2021-2022 school year! We are dedicated to providing all our students with an exemplary educational experience. We ask that all students and parents read through the contents of this handbook to familiarize themselves with school policies and helpful information about FMS.
At Fairview Middle School, we believe the development of character is a key aspect of good citizenship. We are charged with the responsibility of helping students grow academically, socially, and ethically to become effective citizens who will act with integrity. The FMS faculty and staff are dedicated to 7 these purposes. Behavior such as cheating and plagiarism will not be tolerated at FMS, not only because it is self-defeating for the student, but because it is a reality of life. Plagiarism is illegal. Individual students are solely responsible for their own work; they will be held accountable for any deceitful actions which undermine this premise.
Definitions: Academic dishonesty falls under two basic categories – Cheating and Plagiarism.
Cheating is defined as, but not limited to, the following:
- Copying from another student’s work as well as allowing your work to be copied.
- Giving or receiving answers during a test, quiz, or any other assignments without your teacher’s approval. This includes working on assignments together when the teacher has not given explicit permission.
- Using electronic means (such as text messaging, email, pictures, etc.) to copy homework assignments, projects, or communicate test answers.
- Referring to a book, person, or any other resource while you are taking a test or quiz.
- Obtaining, possessing, using, or distributing tests, quizzes, answer keys, teacher manuals or teacher textbooks, etc.
Plagiarism is defined as, but not limited to, the following:
- Representing the work of others as one’s own work. Copying another author’s work from any source and turning it in as your own ideas and writing.
- Not using quotation marks, and/or proper citation to denote material that has been directly quoted from another source.
- Paraphrasing an author without giving proper citation.
- Violating copyright laws by not following fair use guidelines.
Consequences for violating academic integrity: Offenses will be recorded by grade level. By violating the academic integrity policy, student offenders will not be considered for the Beta Club, the student of the month, or any other honor with character as a consideration.
- Parent contact
- Administration will be informed
- Student must complete an alternative assignment, paper, or test to replace the grade of a zero.
- Saturday school assigned by administration
- Parent Contact
- Zero for assignment, paper, or test
- Student must complete assignment, paper or test for no credit
- ISS assigned by administration provided all of first offense consequences were applied.
- The administration will impose appropriate consequences
Excused and Unexcused Absences
Attendance is a key factor in student academic growth and achievement; therefore, students are expected to be present each day that school is in session. If a student is not in school to receive instruction and participate in class activities it becomes very difficult for a student to master the grade level standards and objectives. The principal reserves the right to investigate questionable and/or prolonged absences. Conditions for which a student’s absence may be excused are:
- Illness of a student. The principal may require a doctor’s note.
- Illness in the immediate family that requires the absence of the student from school. The principal may require a doctor’s note.
- Death in the immediate family.
- Religious holidays – the principal may require a statement from the minister or another recognized by the given religious group.
- Absences for other reasons may be excused, if in the judgment of the principal, circumstances warrant. (For complete language see Board Policies).
After a student’s 8th absence, the student must have a doctor’s note for all days that are missed. A parent note is not sufficient to excuse the absence. For every absence after 8, students may be required to attend homework club, after school detentions, and/or Saturday school in order to make up the missed work or to complete assignments that were missed due to the absences.
5 Unexcused Absences
All students must follow the new state law, which requires school personnel to intervene with services for students who accrue 5 or more unexcused absences during the school year. A student’s first eight absences can be excused with a note from a parent, but a doctor’s note must be submitted after eight absences. Therefore, it is very important that your child’s absences are excused by either a parent or doctor note.
A regular pattern of morning tardies and/or early dismissals in the afternoon can become an attendance concern. Parents are strongly urged to schedule dental and medical appointments outside the school day. Undocumented tardies and early dismissals will be considered unexcused absences from school. After eight absences, excused or unexcused, a doctor’s excuse will be required for any additional absences.
Students who miss 18 school days per year will be considered “chronically absent” according to the Tennessee Department of Education. Beginning the 2017-18 school year, the State began requiring a new accountability measure called the Chronically Out-of-School indicator which will place a larger emphasis on attendance when the district and schools are given performance scores.
Chronic absenteeism is defined as a student missing 10 percent or more of the days the student is enrolled for any reason, including excused absences and out-of-school suspensions. Students who miss 18 days for any reason will be reported as chronically absent on his or her attendance record.
Returning From an Absence
A student who has been absent must present a note to the main office the day the student returns to school (please do not call). The note should include the student’s first and last name, the number of days the student has been absent (include dates), the explanation of the absence, and the signature of the parent or guardian. Please do not email teachers an excuse note; all correspondence must go through the attendance office. If you have visited a doctor for an absence, please bring a note from the doctor’s office to excuse specific dates of absence. You can email a doctor’s note or parent note to email@example.com as well.
Making up missed work and tests
All missed classwork and tests from absences are expected to be made up in a timely manner upon returning from school. All makeup work should be completed for the first day missed within three days after the student returns to school. Make up work for days missed in succession will be due in the succeeding days following the third day. Do not request work prior to a student’s absence or during their absence. You may request work if a student has missed 3 consecutive days. Students are expected to make-up all tests and quizzes once all of the work relating to the test or quiz has been completed.
All students are required to be in their assigned classroom by 7:40 a.m. When students are tardy to school (not in their classroom by 7:40), a student is to report to the office, sign in, and then receive a tardy note to enter class. Excused tardies will need a parent or doctor note to be excused; however, a parent note does not guarantee a tardy will be excused.
Students are required to be in their assigned classroom until the conclusion of the school day at 2:47 p.m. If a student is dismissed from school early, a doctor’s note or parent note is required to excuse the dismissal. You can email a doctor or parent note to firstname.lastname@example.org for early dismissal. The student will be called from class when the parent or guardian arrives at school and signs them out in the front office. In order to have a safe and orderly dismissal, there will not be any early dismissals after 2:20 p.m.
New Truancy Laws effective July 1, 2018
All students must follow the new state law, which requires school personnel to intervene with services for students who accrue 5 or more unexcused absences during the school year. A student’s first eight absences can be excused with a note from a parent, but a doctor’s note must be submitted after eight absences.
Tier One (5+ Unexcused Absences)
- Schools will check attendance and connect students and families with school team members to create an attendance contract and monitor progress.
Tier Two (Continued Accumulation of Unexcused Absences)
- A school-based Truancy Team member will check student needs via an individualized assessment and will connect families with the district Truancy Interventionist, who will determine appropriate next steps and coordinate wraparound services to support attendance.
Tier Three (Continued Accumulation of Unexcused Absences/Non-compliance with Tier 2 Mandates)
- A school-based Truancy Team will check student progress and determine appropriate next steps, which could include filing a petition with juvenile court if previous connections have failed.
Just as we have a positive behavior plan for when students make good choices, we also have a reactive discipline plan for when students make negative choices. We believe that every student has a right to learn, and every teacher has a right to teach. Students who choose not to meet these expectations by making the negative choices detailed below, should expect the corresponding negative consequences. Each teacher may have additional expectations for their individual classrooms, but this plan outlines the minimum expectations for all Fairview Middle School students.
In order to accomplish our mission of providing a safe and supportive environment focused on all students achieving high levels of learning, we expect students to abide by the following rules.
- FMS is a community in which all individuals are expected to treat one another with respect and kindness.
- Any student in the hallway or area outside of his/her assigned classroom must have a signed permission slip or hall pass from a teacher.
- Students are not allowed to leave the school grounds during the day without permission from an administrator and his/her parents or legal guardian. Skipping school and leaving the school campus will result in a referral to juvenile court.
- Students are not allowed to be in the building after 3:05 p.m., unless they are under the direct supervision of a teacher, coach, or an administrator and in their designated area. Coaches and teachers must stay with students until they are picked up. Students who are not picked up on time may lose the privilege of participating in that sport or extracurricular activity.
- Students will engage in the appropriate use of technology. Please see the BYOT section for how these situations will be handled.
All disciplinary incidents are subject to the discretion of the FMS administration. Administration may deem to change the consequences for students who have repeatedly made poor choices.
In-School Suspension (ISS) is another discipline alternative which the administration may assign. Students who are assigned ISS are required to comply with all instructions of the ISS teacher. Students will be required to complete class work and make-up tests and quizzes. Students in ISS should report to the office upon arriving at school.
- ISS students will walk with an adult to the ISS classroom. Students may bring lunch or may order a school lunch. Students must work on their class work the entire day.
- Each classroom teacher will assign the student work that needs to be completed while in ISS. Students will turn in all ISS work to the classroom teacher when the student returns to class.
In-School Suspension Expectations:
- Students will work diligently while in ISS.
- Students should bring work to ISS.
- Students will turn in any BYOT to supervising staff.
- Students should bring a writing utensil.
- All school rules and dress code apply.
- Be active and engaged.
- Students should be on time to school.
FMS wants students to be able to talk and interact during lunch. However, students are expected to maintain the same level of control and noise level as they do in the classroom. The following are lunchroom expectations:
- All school rules apply.
- Pay attention while standing in the line.
- Be courteous and polite to the cafeteria workers and supervisors.
- Ask for permission to leave the cafeteria.
- Dispose of all trash.
- The cafeteria is a BYOT free zone.
In order for WCS to maintain a safe learning environment that minimizes distraction, the minimum standards for acceptable clothing during the school day are as follows:
- Tops of shoulders must have a minimum of a 1-inch strap unless otherwise covered by an opaque top 9 garment;
- Skin and undergarments must be covered with opaque clothing from the underarm to mid- thigh. Midthigh is defined as the midpoint between the waist and mid-knee;
- All pants, trousers, shorts and skirts must be held at the waist;
- Leggings and other compression-style garments may be worn so long as an opaque top garment covers the private body parts;
- Hats may be worn in buildings with the permission of building administration;
- Appropriate shoes are required;
- Any type of clothing, apparel or accessory, including that which denotes such students’ membership in or affiliation with any gang associated with criminal activities is not permitted (TCA 49-6-4215).
Any apparel or dress that is potentially disruptive to the learning environment or educational process is not permitted. Any apparel or dress that is dangerous to the health or safety of students or the lawful, peaceful operation of the school is not permitted.
Any apparel or dress that advertises or promotes products or activity prohibited by law or by the Board of Education is prohibited (e.g., profanity, illustrations, or suggestive language, etc).
Student uniforms related to student extracurricular activities (band, cheerleading, dance, sports team, etc.) must be in compliance with this policy during the academic day.
Administrators and teachers shall enforce the dress code policy. The principal or his/her designee shall be the final judge as to compliance with the dress code. Dress code will be checked daily. Students that wear inappropriate clothing will be sent to the office and asked to call home for a change of clothes to be brought to school. If a change of clothes cannot be brought to school, the student may be given clothes to wear that are within the dress code.
Pursuant to the terms of the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), 20 U.S.C.§1232(g), Williamson County Schools designates the following personally identifiable information contained in a student’s educational record as “directory information”, and it will disclose the following student information without prior written consent: name, address, telephone listing, date and place of birth, major field of study, participation in officially recognized activities and sports, dates of attendance, degrees and awards received, weight and height of members of an athletic team, and most recent previous educational agency or institution attended. Parents must notify their child’s school in writing if they do not want his/her directory information released.
Under provisions of the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 and other federal law, directory information will be provided to recruiters from the armed services upon request. Parents must notify their child’s school in writing if they do not want his/her directory information released to military recruiters.
Notice Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) are acts which prohibit discrimination against persons with a disability in any program receiving federal assistance, among others. Both acts define a person with a disability as anyone who:
- has a mental or physical impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities (major life activities include caring for oneself, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, and working);
- has a record of such impairment;
- is regarded as having such an impairment, or has had a record of such an impairment.
In order to fulfill its obligations under Section 504 and the ADA, Williamson County Schools recognizes a responsibility to avoid discrimination in policies and practices regarding its personnel and students. No discrimination against any person on the basis of a disability will knowingly be permitted in any of the programs or practices in the school system.
The school district has specific responsibilities under both acts, which include the responsibility to evaluate and determine if the child is eligible under Section 504/ADA, and to then afford access to appropriate educational accommodations.
If the parent or guardian disagrees with the determination made by the professional staff of the School District, he/she has the right to a hearing with an impartial hearing officer. For further information, contact Jill Merritt, 504 Coordinator at 615-472-4000.

This information is provided as a service to individuals seeking additional avenues for help and information. The Department of Education and Williamson County Schools do not intend this as an endorsement or recommendation for any individual organization or service represented in this list.
Child Find is how Williamson County Schools identify students who may be having problems. This may include children who are gifted (having high intellectual potential) as well as students who have trouble seeing or hearing, need special education services, or need supports to learn. Children with giftedness or special education needs can be found in all types of families. It is important to find these children and give them the help they need as early as possible.
A screening checks to see if children are developing and learning the way they should be at their age. Screening uses a variety of tests and observations to find possible problems in the following areas: hearing, vision, speech, language, social skills, thinking skills, moving and using muscles, self help.
Williamson County Schools embraces the RTI (Response to Intervention) framework as a system for delivering increased levels of support to students by identifying at -risk students, monitoring student progress, and providing evidence -based interventions. Students’ vision and hearing are screened during grades K, 2, 4, 6 and 8. Any child can be screened anytime it is requested by a teacher, parent or concerned individual. Each school has a team of professionals who help identify children who may need assistance in the classroom. This may include students not learning on grade level. It also includes students with high academic achievement, creative thinking and intelligence. Annually, all students in a specific grade level are screened for giftedness.
Based on screening results, the team or any individual can refer a child for a more thorough evaluation. Families do not have to agree to have their child screened because it is done for all children. Families must agree before more thorough formal test(s) are done. If more tests are needed, an assessment team, including the parents, will decide what tests need to be given. The evaluation may show the child does not need special education or is not gifted. If a child qualifies for special education or gifted services, then an educational plan for meeting the child’s needs is written. The child’s parents are part of the team that decides what services the child needs.
The federal law of IDEIA (Individuals with Disabilities Improvement Act of 2004) requires each school district to spend a proportionate amount of federal allocation for services for students with special needs enrolled by parents in home school or private school each year.
The Williamson County Schools office of Student Support Services can be reached at 615-472-4130.

All visitors are required to sign in at the FMS main office and receive a Visitor’s badge. Student visitors from other schools are not allowed at FMS.
Messages and Deliveries
Messages and deliveries to students from parents need to be handled by the main office rather than texting your child, or calling or e-mailing the classroom and interrupting learning. Parents should not text their child while at school as this disrupts the learning environment. If you absolutely must get something to your child, bring it to the FMS front office by 10:15 so that it can be delivered to the student at lunch. Please put your child’s name on the item or lunch. Parents are not allowed to bring their child a lunch from an outside restaurant. For messages received after lunch, we will call the student to the main office at dismissal to receive the message.
Students must pay for lost or damaged textbooks and library books issued by FMS. School records will be withheld if books are not returned or the fine is not cleared.
Hall lockers are assigned to students at the beginning of the school year. Lockers should be locked at all times. Students should not give their locker combinations to anyone, and they should not set their locker so that the locker opens automatically or by just turning the dial slightly. This is for student protection and safety since students are responsible for whatever is found in their lockers. Any problems with locks or lockers should be reported to the office. Lockers can be searched by school officials. Lockers can be taken away from a student for not following the rules or being tardy to class because of their locker.
Students may bring water bottles to class. Water must be in a spill-proof plastic container. Only WATER is allowed in these containers.
Breakfast and Lunch at the FMS Café
Breakfast and Lunch are available at no charge for students during the 2021-2022 school year. Ala Carte items are still being sold. Parents please create an account at https://family.titank12.com/ . This account will allow you to deposit money in your child’s lunch account at any time and track your child’s daily purchase history. Students may add money to their personal account before school starts each day. To speed up lines in the cafeteria, money cannot be deposited in student accounts during lunchtime.
Fees and Fines
Fees approved by WCSB may be charged by schools for activities that occur during regular school hours, supplies required for participation in all courses offered for grades, equipment, and supplies required to participate in interscholastic athletics and band, and fees or tuition for summer school. The payment of school fees is voluntary. No fee will be charged to any student as a condition of attending school, but students shall be responsible for normal school supplies, such as pencils and paper. School fees are waived for students who are eligible to receive free or reduced-priced school lunches. Applications are available in the school office. Fines may be charged for overdue library books, lost, damaged or destroyed textbooks, library books, workbooks, or other school property.
Health and Medicine
A written request must be made by parents for any medicines to be administered to their child during the school day. All such medicine will be stored and dispensed by the school nurse in the clinic. This procedure encompasses all medication: prescription, non-prescription, and emergency drugs. For the safety of all students, DO NOT send medicine with your child to school. It must be brought and picked up by the parent/guardian to and from the nurse’s office. Medication will not be sent home with a student for any reason.
Grading and Progress Reporting
The assessment and reporting of student progress to parents is an important component in establishing effective home/school relations. It is our goal that students, teachers, parents, and administrators work together to help students reach their maximum potential.
Family Access / Skyward
Parents are expected to activate their Family Access account and monitor their child’s academic performance weekly. Parents can keep up to date with their child’s grades as they are entered in the teacher’s grade book. Through Family Access you can set triggers to be sent via email when your child’s grade drops below a designated numerical average. To set up a Family Access account, please visit www.wcs.edu. Choose the Parents and Students tab and click WCS Family Access. You will need a WCS-issued username and password to activate your account. Please bring a photo ID to pick up this information at FMS during school hours.
Grades are updated in Family Access for progress reports at the halfway mark (4.5 weeks) of the 9 week reporting period. Parents are able to access these grades electronically through the Family Access account. If you desire a hard copy of your progress report, please contact the main office at FMS.
Report Cards are generated at the end of each nine-week grading period into a PDF file in your Family Access account.
WCS Grading Scale
I Incomplete (must be removed during the next grading period)
It is the expectation of FMS that all students diligently complete all academic assignments on time. FMS provides Homework Club on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons in order to support students in completing all assignments.
For purposes of BYOT, “technology” is defined as personally owned wireless, portable electronic equipment used FOR INSTRUCTIONAL PURPOSES ONLY. Students are allowed to have their devices at teacher request for educational purposes. There are certain areas where there is no use for technology as an educational device such as the hallways, cafeteria, gymnasium, restrooms, and theater. These areas will be considered cell phone free zones. All approved devices should be used for classroom learning purposes only. Students are not allowed to use their cellphones to text or make phone calls between 7:20 am and 2:47 pm. The device may ONLY be used to access files or internet sites which are relevant to the classroom curriculum. Non-instructional games, sites, or texting are not permitted. WCS approved devices for the 2021-2022 school year include: smartphones, iPads, iPods, laptops, netbooks, tablet computers and eReaders that meet the definition of technology. All approved devices must allow access to the Internet through a fully functional web browser and be capable of accessing the WCS guest network.
Students must be picked up no later than 3:05 p.m. Parents of students left after 3:05 p.m. will be notified that they are in violation of school policy and their child may be required to ride the bus home for the remainder of the school year.
If a student will be walking home from school, the office must have written permission from a parent/guardian on file.
Failure to obey the school bus driver may result in denial of school transportation rights. The decision regarding the disciplinary action is to be made by the school administrator. The bus is an extension of the school. All school rules apply. No student should behave in a way that interferes with the driver’s ability to focus on the road and keep student safety the main priority. Bus infractions will result in referral to an administrator.
Riding Home with a Friend
A student should only ride the bus to which he or she has been assigned by the WCS Transportation Department. Any student who needs to ride home with another student must have a note written and signed by the parent or guardian. This note must be brought to the office each day the student plans on riding another bus and the office will issue a FMS bus pass, which must be given to the bus driver upon getting on the bus. A bus driver is not allowed to accept a bus pass that is not issued by the FMS front office. A bus pass is only good for the day it is issued by the FMS office. Phone calls and emails are not sufficient for receiving a bus pass, because it would be a violation of the state law concerning this issue.
District Wide Policies
Technology and Chromebooks
Interscholastic activities in Williamson County Schools are an important part of the overall educational process. The athletic programs offer students expanded learning opportunities including self-discipline, self-esteem and teamwork. Students who participate in extracurricular activities tend to get higher grades, have better attendance and pose fewer discipline problems.
