Safety & Security – Innovators Program
Student safety and security is our first priority at SIG. All SIG programs are held at safe campus locations with access to campus security and supported by experienced SIG staff. An experienced Director oversees all aspects of the program on campus and Deans supervise academics, residential life, and student activities. Housemasters, who are experienced educators and administrators, manage and supervise dormitories for residential students. Day program students as well as Day + Evenings and Saturdays students, are assigned a counselor in charge of safely checking them in and out each day. Students are accompanied by a Counselor or SIG staff member on and off campus. Once on campus, students cannot leave unless they are supervised by SIG staff or granted permission through Senior Privileges. Students ages 15-17 with Senior Privileges are allowed relaxed supervision on most campuses. Students are always chaperoned during SIG off-campus trips.
During the three-week session, a resident licensed nurse is on duty 24 hours a day. At the beginning of the session, parents are required to give all prescription and non-prescription medication to the nurse, including over-the-counter products such as aspirin, decongestants, antacids, vitamins, etc. Unless the nurse authorizes it, students may not keep any medication in their rooms. Students who are not feeling well during the session must report to the infirmary, escorted by a staff member. Any drug use outside of approved medications from the nurse is strictly prohibited.
