2019-2020 Student Online Handbook
In cooperation with the entire Crown Point Community School Corporation, Colonel John Wheeler Middle School supports students in their acquisition of skills, knowledge, and attitudes that are necessary for all students to reach their highest potential. We have high expectations and provide a rigorous curriculum while meeting the social and emotional needs of our students so as to nurture the development of life-long learning.
The rules you are about to read in this student handbook are in addition to our broad, discretionary authority to maintain safety, order, and discipline inside the school zone. These rules support, but do not limit our authority. It should also be noted that our Director of Security and school resource officers support school personnel in their efforts to maintain safety, order and discipline in the school zone. Please know that these rules are primarily for protection, not punishment.
