This information has explained the major disciplinary problem areas and the actions that will result for those students who do not follow the rules. All students are entitled to due process. This means there are certain procedures which school officials must follow in taking appropriate disciplinary action. There are also procedures, which students must follow if they do not agree with the school's actions.
The school principal has the right to suspend a student for a period of up to five days. In cases of this type, there will be an informal hearing between the principal or his/her designee, the student, and any other appropriate persons. If, after the hearing is completed, the principal decides that a suspension is necessary, it will become effective immediately. The principal will attempt to notify parents by telephone before this action is taken and will send one copy of the suspension notice to the parents.
The school principal has the right to recommend to the district superintendent that a student should be expelled. In cases of this type, the hearing will be conducted before the Governing Board of the Unified School District at the school district office.
