Discipline Decisions

Within five (5) days following receipt of the Administrator’s recommendation for suspension or of the Disciplinary Hearing Committee’s recommendation, the College President or designee shall render a final written decision. The College President or designee shall base his or her decision only upon the information provided by the Administrator or, in the case of a formal hearing, the record of the hearing and the recommendation of the Disciplinary Hearing Committee, and shall not consider matters outside of that record. The College President’s or designee’s decision shall contain specific findings of the facts and conclusions, or shall specifically adopt those contained in the Administrator’s recommendation. The College President or designee may adopt the recommendations made to him or her for action, may adopt a less severe sanction, or may adopt a more severe sanction.

The College President or designee should promptly send a copy of his/her decision, together with the Administrator’s recommendation and the Disciplinary Hearing Committee’s recommendation, to the student and to the Administrator.

The College President or designee shall, in accordance with District policy, notify the Chancellor and the President of the other College in the GCCCD of any decisions to suspend or expel a student or any recommendation of long-term suspension or expulsion of a student.

When the decision is to recommend expulsion of a student to the Board of Trustees, the College President may suspend the student pending action by the Board of Trustees.

If the decision is to expel a student, with or without the right of reconsideration after a specific period of time, the College President or designee shall promptly recommend such action to the Board of Trustees. Only Board of Trustees shall be authorized to take such action.

The facts of any disciplinary action and the reasons therefore shall be recorded on the student’s records subject to access, review, and comment by the student as authorized by the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (20 USC Section 2332g) and Education Code Section 76200 et seq. All access or release of such records to members of the public shall also be in accordance with applicable State and Federal laws.

Any decision by the College President to suspend or expel shall be effective at both campuses.
