    You Don't Want to Miss Out on a Parking Spot

    Are you interested in student parking?  If you are a student interested in parking on campus  you must meet the following criteria and follow the directions below: 

    • Be at least 16 years old with a valid driver's license.
    • Have valid and current insurance.
    • Log onto MyPaymentsPlus to sign up and make your payment.
    • You may only pay by MyPaymentsPlus  
      • No other forms of payment will be accepted.  
      • The cost is $75.00.

    Reasons that you could be denied a permit are:

    • Lack of insurance
    • Incorrect age of driver, and/or
    • Missing documentation.  

    In order to receive a parking permit, you must show Drivers License AND proof of insurance.

    Payments can be made online via MyPaymentsPlus   Once you have received a parking decal, you will be assigned to a specific parking lot.  Students are not allowed to swap, sell or trade spots.  Doing so can result in losing your parking permit for the year. Parking spots in each lot are assigned. Visit the Parking section of the Archer Agenda Book for additional details. 


    If you are parked illegally, your vehicle can be towed.

    If you have been tardy to 1st period 5 times in a semester, your parking permit can be revoked for a period of one week.  

    Additional tardies to 1st period will result in additional time that a student will lose their parking privileges.

  • PBIS


    Archer High School is a PBIS school. PBIS is a program that helps students develop the practice of positive behaviors. 

    The Basic Philosophy of PBIS is to:

    • TEACH students how they are expected to behave
    • REINFORCE their good behavior
    • PROVIDE SUPPORT to students as they learn to correct misdirected behaviors

    PBIS is a framework  for creating and sustaining an effective school-wide behavior system with an emphasis on preventing problems. Shifting the focus to prevention minimizes behavioral problems and increases academic time for students. When this type of system is fully in place: 

    Providing predictability, stability, clear limits, consistency, and routine helps create safe learning environments. Structure helps students to develop internal control and self-discipline by organizing their world and providing age-appropriate opportunities for them to make their own positive decisions. PBIS has been successful in schools throughout the United States and has met with success in several school in Georgia.
