The California Constitutions states, “All students and staff of public primary, elementary, junior high, and senior high schools, and community colleges, colleges, and universities have the inalienable right to attend campuses which are safe, secure and peaceful.“One method we use to accomplish safe, secure and peaceful schools is through our Disciplinary Hearing process.
When deemed necessary, district administrators may recommend that a student be transferred to another comprehensive school within the district. The student will have the opportunity to oppose the transfer at an informal hearing. The Discipline Hearing will include notice to the student and parents of the charges against the student and/or the reasons for the proposed action, an opportunity for the student and parents to rebut or respond to the charges, and review of the student’s record. The meeting may include the student, parents, site administrators and district personnel. The Student Services Department will notify the student and parents of the District’s final decision. Disciplinary action may result in a recommendation to return to present school, be administratively placed at another school, or placed in an alternative program and/or other educational intervention.
