Discipline Procedures

Initial Meeting: Within ten (10) days from the time the Administrator is informed of facts which may constitute an alleged violation of the Student Code of Conduct, the Administrator will schedule a meeting with the student involved, unless mutually agreed upon by the student and Administrator that more time is required. Every effort shall be made to resolve the matter informally.

Procedures Applicable to Short-term Suspensions, Long-term Suspensions and Expulsions: Before any disciplinary action to suspend or expel is taken against a student, the following procedures will apply:

Notice: The CSSO or designee will provide the student with written notice of the conduct warranting the discipline. The written notice will include the following:

  • The specific section of the Standards of Student Conduct which the student is accused of violating.
  • A short statement of the fact(s) supporting the accusation(s).
  • The right of the student to meet with the CSSO or designee to discuss the accusation, or to respond in writing.
  • The nature of the discipline that is being considered.

Time Limits: The notice must be provided to the student within ten (10) days of the date on which the initial meeting took place.

Meeting: If the student chooses to meet with the CSSO or designee, the meeting must occur no sooner than five (5) days after the notice is provided. At the meeting, the student must again be told the facts leading to the accusation, and must be given an opportunity to respond verbally or in writing to the accusation.
