Discipline General

The facts of any disciplinary action and the reasons 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. The CSSO shall maintain student disciplinary records.

Three (3) years after the date of a disciplinary action, the portion of the student’s records which refers to the action shall be sealed and placed in storage. The records shall be available only to officers or employees of the GCCCD and only used when necessary to represent the College or District in litigation or other legal or administrative proceedings.

Any specified time limits stated in these procedures may be shortened or lengthened by mutual concurrence of all parties.

If any student is suspended or expelled from the GCCCD, he or she shall not be present on any of the campuses or at the District Office without authorization from the CSSO or the District Vice Chancellor of Human Resources and must be escorted by a District Public Safety officer.

Failure of the student to appeal any determination at any step within the specified time limits shall be deemed acceptance by the student of the last determination rendered.

Written notice to a student pursuant to these procedures shall be sufficient if sent by certified mail to the last known address of the student currently on file at the College. Notice shall be deemed given on the day of said mailing.

The CSSO shall be responsible for enforcing the procedures at the campus. In case of a conflict, or at the discretion of the College President, another administrator may be designated to enforce these procedures.

Whenever there is included in any student record information concerning any disciplinary action taken by community college personnel in connection with the student, the student shall be allowed to include in such record a written statement or response concerning the disciplinary action. (Education Code 76233)

Technical departures from these procedures and errors in its application shall not constitute grounds to invalidate disciplinary action against a student unless, in the opinion of the College President or designee, the technical departure or error prevented a fair determination of the issue.
