PR 2610 Misconduct and Disciplinary Consequences

The discipline code set
out in this regulation is intended to be illustrative but not an
exclusive listing of acts of misconduct and the consequences for
each. Misconduct which is not specifically listed in this regulation
may be deemed to warrant discipline up to and including expulsion
following provision of all due process procedures. In addition, the
disciplinary consequence listed for each offense may be increased or
decreased by the Administration or the Board of Education due to
mitigating or aggravating circumstances.

Copies of this regulation or the student handbook which includes the code of student conduct and disciplinary consequences, as well as the District's corporal punishment policy, if any, will be provided to each student at the beginning of each school year. Copies of these documents will also be available for public inspection during normal business hours in the Superintendent's office.
