ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Lee County High School started a new parking policy in place for the school year. 

Students will now have to fill out an application to get a parking pass.

School staff will grant one if the student has good behavior and attendance, must be in good standing such as passing five out of seven classes and on track for graduation. 

Last spring, school leaders reviewed its discipline data and found that 50 percent of suspendable offenses were due to attendance, specifically leaving school without permission.

Principal Dr. Karen Hancock explained parking at the school is a privilege, and she will reward students who meet the requirements. 

"The good standing is rewarding the students that are doing exactly what you expect a student to do and that's it. The parking is not going to be, it's not an entitlement. It's a privilege you earn, it's a privilege you keep," said Dr. Hancock. 

Lee County High School leaders said students will be given multiple warnings before the parking lot pass is taken away.

In the front and back parking lots, there are about 360 parking spots. 

Students can complete the application on the school's website. They'll be accepting them from now until Friday, August 11th.
