    On Arrival
    Students

    Stop One - Security Check
    Under aged students will stop first at a security checkpoint before entering the school, where they will be asked to turn over any offensive or dangerous gear. If they are thought to be hiding weapons instead of turning them over, they will be patted down and all weapons confiscated. These weapons will be returned to them during classes, missions, and when they reach AP Level (icly).

    Adult students are allowed to keep their gear, but abuse of said gear will result in it being confiscated. Abuse of powers in either group will result in a power inhibitor being applied outside of class.

    Their belongings and bags will also be searched and taken up to their rooms for them.

    Stop Two - Books and Gear
    Students will then be guided to the front desk where they will receive a welcome package. Each package will have the following:
    • A Copy of the Handbook
    • A Map of the School
    • Their ID Card
    • A Guide to Dangerous Sealife & Marine Hazards
    • A School Cellphone (Similar features to Iphone)
    • Some essentials such as a toothbrush, hairbrush, umbrella, a water bottle, a set of pencils, pens, notebooks and a flash drive.

    Stop Three - A Tour
    Students are then given a tour of most of the facility and a verbal overview of the school's rules and policies, which takes most of a day. Students will likely stop for lunch and be released to explore on their own or go to their room before dinner.

    For the first two weeks, all students are sorted into either Camp Artemis or Camp Perseus depending on their age groups. During orientation camp students are taught team building skills and other essentials while they're taught the ins and outs of the island. After these two weeks students will be given their regular rooms.

    Both camps are communal housing with bunk beds, one for each age group.

    Stop Four - Introductory Classes
    All students are required to take a series of classes their second and third days or they may not take any other classes until they have. Students will be taught Basic First Aid, Safe Use of the Hazard Simulators and Dojos, and Safety and Responsibility of Powers around Campus.


    Teachers

    New Teachers go through most of the same process as above, minus the security check. Teachers are allowed to keep their weapons with them, and will receive both Teacher and Student Handbooks to familiarize themselves with the rules of Chiron University.

Students found taking part in these activities will be dealt with by staff.

    Powers outside of Classes

    Mission Statement
    Chiron University is meant to prepare our gifted students for entering an ever changing world full of danger and problems too big for one mind to solve alone. We are here to teach them to become their own heroes, and to be forces of positive change, both within their individual communities and the world at large.

    Honesty, Integrity, Courage, Compassion, Adaptability, and Self Awareness are all values our students will be learning at Chiron University.

    Injury and Illnesses
    All major injury and illnesses should be reported to Sick Bay immediately. Do not try to treat the illness or injury yourself. Sickbay will instruct you on how to further proceed after you or your student has been treated.

    Port excursions
    If you are escorting students on a port excursion, it is your responsibility that everyone is accounted for and back in time for departure. It is also your responsibility to ensure your students are safe during their time ashore and that they understand and follow all local laws. Please be aware of the laws and potential dangers of the port you are visiting before you disembark.

    Bullying and Arguments
    Our student body is a mixed age group. While bullying behavior can be corrected in those in the younger set, and should be dealt with immediately, it can be harder to deal with arguments and bullying in adults. Arguments should be encouraged to be dealt with in a more constructive way if come across.

    More extreme forms of altercations should be reported and broken up if they become dangerous. They may require corrective discipline or a visit to the University's psychologist, but leave those disciplinary actions to the university's head team. If you should come across an altercation, your job is simply to ensure that everyone is safe.

    All incidents should be reported to the front desk so that they may be added to the student's permanent record.

    Rule Enforcement
    It is your job to ensure that all parties observe and follow the rules in their respective handbooks. It is your responsibility to ensure that students are safe and responsible while on University grounds or under your care on missions or port excursions. You are authorized to take corrective measures or dispense proper constructive discipline if you find any party doing otherwise.
