The Math Plan The district's Math Vertical Team developed a comprehensive plan for addressing math instruction at Gotham schools. The Math Plan is a blueprint for helping students progress from a basic understanding of math to higher level skills, such as adapting and using information in real life situations, or for preparation for college.

Student Intervention Students may experience problems. They may have trouble learning, health concerns may interfere with learning, or a family crisis may prove too distracting or overwhelming. When possible, these issues will be resolved using simple strategies such as changing a seat, using a homework sheet, or with the Peer to Peer Tutoring Program. But if the student has difficulties not addressed by classroom strategies, it may be time to begin the intervention process. The first step will be to establish an Intervention Team for the student. The group may include teachers (both classroom and special area), school psychologist, and/or counselor, and, when necessary, a social worker, and/or nurse. Parents, along with the student, are at the center of this team, Other members could include administrators, and special consultants (for example, a speech therapist) and, where appropriate, the student himself/herself. They meet to define the concern and to decide on a course of action to help the student achieve success.

School Safety


Our mission is to provide a safe and secure environment where students can learn and thrive.

The Gotham Unified School District has adopted a Zero Tolerance Policy for drug and weapon possession. A student found in possession of drugs or weapons (including guns, knives, nunchuks, pepper spray or anything determined to be a weapon) will be immediately suspended from school. If the student is in possession of drugs, or has broken a law, say, by possession of a firearm, the police will be notified.

Within thirty days, a hearing will be conducted. The school administrator, a parent and the student must all attend. At that time, there will be a determination of the length of the student’s suspension.

All High School campuses will have metal detectors installed at entrances. Students will not be able to enter the building without going through a metal detector. Since not all doors will have metal detectors, this means that students will have to follow school policy on entering the building. It is possible that a door the student previously used will now be locked so as to only allow students to exit, not enter the building.

The Student Discipline Code is a 22 page booklet. This booklet is given to every student as part of the their enrollment packet on the first day of the school year, or, in the case of transfer students, when they register for classes. Additional copies can be obtained from the office of the school the child attends.

All students have a right to a learning environment that is free from the threat of harassment, violence or discrimination.

  • The special notice on the left bar mentions the bus line being rerouted in District 22, and in the TDK IMAX prologue, the Joker is seen escaping the bank heist in a yellow school bus conspicuously marked "District 22."
