Our school practices progressive discipline. Consequences may include the following, depending on the severity and frequency of misbehavior, and depending upon the age of the student and other contexts of the misbehavior:
- Conference with principal or assistant principal
- Denial of privilege
- Parent conference
- Restitution (payment or replacement of damaged or stolen property)
- Confiscation of items deemed disruptive or dangerous
- Behavior contract (for repeated or chronic disruptive behavior)
- Time out in the office
Serious misbehavior can result in the following consequences, in accordance with state law and district policy, as explained in detail in the pages that follow.
- In-school suspension
- Out of school suspension
Suspension: The exclusion of a student from attending school and participating in school activities for a specified and limited period of time (usually a half-day or one day, and not to exceed five days); may be in- school or out-of-school.
Expulsion: The exclusion of a student from attending school and participating in school activities for a specified period of time, not to extend beyond one calendar year.
All rules, policies, district policies, and procedures apply to all school-sponsored activities, whether on or off campus, before school, during school, or after school.
Student conduct that occurs off campus, but which may threaten the health, welfare, or safety of students may also warrant disciplinary action. This is evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
