SCHOOL RULES FOR X-STUDENTS
(Your student KNOWS these rules if he/she is attending Xaviers. Any breaking of these rules may come with IC concequences, so be aware of that.)
>Classes last from 9AM to 4PM, with a one hour lunch between 12-1PM.
>During school days, everyone should be in their dorms by 10PM.
> Students are allowed off-campus with permission from a staff member. An in and out log is kept. Under 16s must be accompanied by an adult.
> Drugs, alcohol, and paraphernalia are strictly prohibited.
> Use of powers in an aggressive manner is strictly prohibited. Students needing assistance with control may be asked to attend extra or private counseling.
> Use of powers to invade someone's privacy is also prohibited. This includes telepaths using their gifts to read minds.
> There is no uniform, but students are asked to dress appropriately, with respect to other students and staff. No attire that promotes hate, shows foul language, or is too suggestive.
> Dorm rooms should be kept tidy. Personalization is allowed, but destruction of school's property is not.
> Teachers are to be treated with proper respect. While informality may be accepted by some staff, they will let students know. It should not be assumed. Teachers should be addressed as 'Mr., Mrs.. Ms....ect...
> The school has an intraweb for use by all students and staff, including internet access and an IM system. The web is monitored and protected (No adult sites and any content, including messages, can be monitored.)
> Xavier's public face is as a 'School for the Gifted'. For the safety of the student body and the school itself, it is important that this anonymity be maintained. If you ever feel that someone is in need of our services you may provide /discreet/ information or direct the individual to a staff member. (OOC: It is NOT public knowledge that Xavier's is a school for mutants)
>Students under the age of 18 or that haven't graduated are not allowed to use Danger Room without supervision or a teacher's code.
>Students may not use the Danger Room alone.
>Students don't have uniforms, but sweats and training clothes are offered for those who want them.
WARDS OF THE SCHOOL
This section is for students who are here as wards of the school.
> A cell phone is provided for each student. Minutes and texts are monitored and may be taken away as s form of disciplinary action.
> Each student is given a moderate weekly allowance.
> Disciplinary actions for student infractions are based in accordance to consideration of student's age, maturity, previous disciplinary record and the circumstances leading to the infraction. Every reasonable effort should be made to correct misbehavior through guidance and counseling. Appropriate disciplinary responses should emphasize prevention and effective intervention, prevent disruption to studentsí education, and promote the development of a positive school culture.
Students who engage in misconduct are subject to appropriate disciplinary measures determined by the teacher, or designated official staff of the school.
RULES AND GUIDELINES FOR NEW MUTANTS
As graduates who have opted to continue studying at Xavier's, New Mutants are afforded more freedom and the rules are generally more accepted guidelines. There is also an unspoken line between the junior and senior New Mutants, with the senior ones being only a few years from becoming X-Men and therefore being more trusted and often treated as X-Men-in-waiting rather than students. Many of the older New Mutants teach specialised classes and are therefore technically faculty, but do not have all the privileges of the graduated staff and must always remember that they are still in training themselves. New Mutant classes in general are often more informal and interactive in a college-style manner.
> New Mutants have no curfew, but are expected to behave in a responsible manner and keep the noise down on the dormitory floor when the X-Students are sleeping. Repeatedly spending the night away from the Institute without letting an X-Man know is frowned upon.
> A college-level academic specialty (or mutant-related equivalent) is to be chosen and maintained, with an X-Men for a supervisor.
> New Mutants still do not go on missions unless a situation calls specifically for it. Junior New Mutants rarely go out, but some of the older senior New Mutants who wish to become X-Men upon graduation may be allowed on routine missions for experience.
> Danger Room time must be logged and still requires permission from an X-Man. New Mutants still cannot get down to the sub-basements alone, but they are allowed to use the Danger Room alone so long as someone in the control room is supervising them.
> New Mutants are expected to set a good example for the younger students. They are afforded fewer rules, yes, but are trusted to be responsible without exact limits being placed upon them. One of the most humiliating punishments for a misbehaving New Mutant is to have X-Student rules re-inforced.
(These aren't written down rules as much as things you should be aware of OOCly that students can not do. If you feel a specific need to break one of these rules for plot purposes, you must contact staff for approval FIRST)
> Gaining unauthorized access to any of the secure areas of the mansion - The Danger room, the med lab, the hanger and any equipment, such as the jet.
> Access to the Danger Room control panel and safety controls.
> Allowing unauthorized persons onto the grounds.
> Hacking of any computer systems
> Any major destruction within school grounds
