SUSPENSION PROCEDURES

When the severity of an offense warrants, or when repeated application of other measures for correcting inappropriate behavior has failed to bring about proper conduct, a student will be referred to the assistant principal or principal for possible suspension.  The school administrator shall make every reasonable effort to verify all facts and statements prior to making a judgment involving possible suspension of a student.

Step 1: The student shall be granted an informal conference conducted by a school administrator.  During the conference, the student shall be informed of the reason for the disciplinary action and the evidence against him or her. The student shall be given the opportunity to present his or her version of the alleged misconduct and the present evidence of his or her defense.

Step 2:  After this informal conference, the administrator may either exonerate the student, suspend the student for up to five school days, or chose another disciplinary alternative.

Step 3: Whenever a student is suspended, the parent/guardian will be notified in writing of the suspension.  In addition, at the time of the suspension, the school will make a reasonable effort to contact the student’s parent/guardian by telephone or in person and inform then of the suspension.

Emergency Situation: The school administrator may suspend a student without affording the student an opportunity for a conference if it is determined by the administration that an emergency situation exists.  Emergency situation means that, due to the nature of the violation, the continued presence of the student on campus would cause a danger to the health or physical safety of the student or others.  If a student is suspended for emergency reasons without a conference prior to suspension, both the parent/guardian and the student will be notified of the student’s right to a conference.  Unless the student waives the right of a conference or is physically unable to attend for legitimate reasons, the conference shall be held within two school days of the suspension.

  • A student who is on suspension MAY NOT be on any school campus or district owned property for the length of the suspension including the afternoon or evening of the same day the suspension was given and any weekend school sponsored activity if it occurs while the student is still on suspension and unable to attend school.  No activity, game, dance etc. may be attended by a suspended student.
