Teachers are authorized to keep students after school for making up work and for meeting other school obligations and shall provide for proper adult supervision of detained students. Students may be detained in school for disciplinary or other reasons for periods of up to one hour in addition to the normal school day.

Teachers imposing detention shall allow students enough time to notify their parents and to make arrangements to adjust their personal commitments to accommodate the detention time. School sponsored extracurricular activities shall not take precedence over detention or other disciplinary actions.
