Closed Campus

Bud Carson Middle School is a closed campus, which means that students cannot leave the grounds until the close of the school day without the permission of an administrator. Parents or adults authorized to pick a student up must sign the student out in the office in order for the student to leave campus early. Students will not be allowed to leave campus alone during the school day. This has been established for the safety of the students.

Textbooks

All textbooks must be covered.  We loan books to students. If students lose or damage books, they are responsible for covering the cost of the book. PLEASE TAKE CARE OF YOUR BOOKS! All fines for books must be paid to receive report cards, transfer papers, or eighth grade promotion certificates.

Textbook Adoptions

All K-8 core instructional materials in the Hawthorne School District are selected from publisher’s submissions that have been approved by the California State Department of Education.

Each of the following series has been adopted by the Board of Trustees for use in the Hawthorne School District following a rigorous evaluation and selection process that included the active involvement of parents, teachers and school administrators. Materials are adopted on a cycle established by the State Board of Education.
