Disciplinary Referral – any documented misbehavior. It is a way for school administrators to keep track of a student’s behavior. (reports/detentions/suspensions/removals/expulsions)

Any violation of school or district policy may result in a disciplinary referral. If a student accumulates five referrals during the school year, he/she may be placed on probationary status.

Probationary Status: A student receiving 5 disciplinary referrals will be placed on Probationary Status.

Parents will be informed when a student is placed on probationary status.

In order to be removed from probationary status, the parent, student and administrator will determine a program of positive actions to be completed so that the student may resume regular status. Probationary status carries over from year to year.

In order to regain regular standing, students may need to complete one of the following for each referral (time of service to be determined and verified by administration):

  • · Increase quarter grades
  • No referrals for a quarter
  • Attend tutoring
  • Assist a faculty member or custodial staff or work at an athletic event
