Non-scho- ol Bulletin Board Policy C-- l) Policy on Using School Building All groups who wish to use Dixie College buildings, rooms, or equip- ment for activities other than those regularly scheduled will make application for such use on a special form available at the desk of the Presidents secretary. If the room, department, or piece of equipment, is under the supervision of a division or department ead, his signature must be obtained. The signature of the Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds must always be obtained, and should there be a conflict with other school activities, the signature of the chairman of the scheduling committee is necessary. Groups not directly affilited with Dixie College will be required to pay a fee according to an established schedule on file with the Presidents secretary. Once permission has been obtained, the fee assessed, the individual or group making the request must pay the fee to the treasurer, or make arrangements to do so prior to the time of use. In any event his signature must be affixed before the request form is complete. It can then be used as an admit form which will authorize the custodian in charge to make available such facilities as have been requested. If a student, or group of students, finds it necessary to use any school facilities after 11 p. m., it will be his or their responsibility to arrange for a faculty sponsor to be in attendance. Unless this is done, it shall be the responsibility of the custodian to evict him or them from the building. An exception to this rule can be made only with the written consent of the faculty sponsor of" the event, the Superintendent of Buildings and Grounds, and the President. Members of the custodial staff will be responsible for the closing and locking of all buildings at 11 If student p. m., at the latest. groups remain after that time, their faculty sponsor shall be responsible for closing the windows, turning off equipment, closing the doors, and double checking all outside exits. Class Withdrawal Policy Announced College students who withdraw prior to the end of the sixth week of each academic quarter at Dixie College shall be given an incomplete failing grade for each of their classes as their instructors shall individually determine. After the expiration of the sixth week, however, all students who withdraw will be given a failing grade unless petition is made to the Attendance and Scholarship Committee for special consideration. This shall be given for withdrawals made necessary by calls to the military service, to serve missions, for illness sufficient to prohibit attendance, and for other circumstances which the committee shall deem sufficient.
