School Policies


Respect ~ Integrity ~ Responsibility

Respect, Integrity, and Responsibility are three core values at Hancock College Prep. These core values guide how students, teachers, and staff relate to each other and are vital to the success of every individual in the building. It is the goal of this community to bring these values to life at every possible opportunity over the course of the school year.

Example Definition of Respect

Treating others and myself with honor and obeying the school rules


Example Definition of Integrity

Choosing to do the right thing even when others aren’t looking


Example Definition of Responsibility

Accepting complete ownership for my actions and the effects they have on me and others

The CPS Student Code of Conduct shall be enforced. Please reference it for additional information on behavior expectations and rules.

Any student who is caught using profanity will be severely disciplined. We will not tolerate inappropriate language in the school. Parents, please talk with your student regarding appropriate school behavior. Inappropriate behavior is a negative reflection on the school, the community, and the parents. All student behavior is to be based upon respect and consideration for the rights of others for a safe, secure educational experience. Students have the responsibility to know and adhere to the rules and regulations of the school.
Search and Seizure
The school principal, assistant principals, or a faculty designated by the principal shall be authorized to search and seize the contents of lockers or personal property when there is reasonable suspicion that the contents may include stolen property or present a threat to the safety, health, or welfare of individuals in the building.
Metal Detector Searches
Any person entering Hancock may be subject to search. All students entering the building are subject to metal detector screenings.
Mobile/Cell Phones
Mobile/cell phones used in school not only pose an interruption to the educational process but also a threat to the safety and security of all students. Students are reminded to turn off and secure cell phones during class and passing periods. A student may use his/her cell phone during his/her lunch period in the cafeteria only. A student must receive permission from the principal to use a cell phone during any other time. A student using a cell phone in the building other than in the cafeteria during a lunch may have it confiscated and returned only to a parent. Additional offenses may result in suspension.
Graffiti and Tagging
Graffiti is a municipal and federal crime. Students in possession of permanent markers, paint markers, paint, or any other instrument or media used for vandalizing property, including any form of tagging, may face suspension and/or arrest. The implications for these behaviors are serious. Students caught will face non-negotiable consequences and interventions with the school and with the Chicago Police Department.
