Discipline

Philosophy & Jurisdiction

CGUHSD places high priority on providing each student with the opportunity to learn within a safe and stimulating environment. For this reason, the Governing Board accepts the responsibility for identifying those behaviors, which, if allowed to exist without restrictions and appropriate disciplinary action, would interfere with individual and group learning and interfere with the orderly conduct of our public schools. Furthermore, the Governing Board charges the staff with the responsibility for enforcing and maintaining an appropriate learning and behavioral environment. According to Arizona law, the Governing Board also has the authority to discipline students for disorderly conduct on their way to and from school (A.R.S. 15-341 A13). The Governing Board gives this responsibility to the local school administration. The Governing Board also gives the school administration the authority to discipline students for disorderly conduct and other offenses at school-sponsored activities.

Off-Campus Misconduct

The Student Disciplinary Code and all penalties may apply to conduct off school grounds (A.R.S. 15-341 A13) that may endanger the health or safety of students within the school setting or substantially interfere with the educative process. Examples of off-campus misconduct which may be subject to discipline include, but are not limited to: illegal activity, threats of violence, alcohol possession/use, fighting, hazing, drug possession/use or sales, firearm possession, violent offenses, robbery, burglary, arson, and sexual assaults. Students may be subject to the full range of disciplinary penalties for off-campus misconduct, including but not limited to: suspensions, expulsions, detentions, reassignment of class schedule, as well as removal from participation in extracurricular activities, such as interscholastic sports teams, club sports, student government positions, class trips, class proms, senior farewell activities, and graduation.

Jurisdiction During After-School Hours

CGUHSD may pursue disciplinary action against students for trespassing violations and acts of vandalism to district/school facilities and property when occurring during after-school hours, weekends, holiday breaks, and summer recess.  Restitution will be sought for property damage and loss.

Student/Parent/Guardian Responsibility

Students and Parents/Guardians have the responsibility to read, know, and conform to our policies, To ensure compliance with policy, please contact us if there are any questions.

Administration's Discretion

Action taken by the school authority will fall between the minimum and the maximum category identified in the disciplinary action charts listed in the Student Handbook. Employment of discipline alternatives is at the discretion of the school authority. In some situations, (i.e., alcohol, drug violations, suspensions), consequences may be reduced when the student attends counseling or drug awareness classes. Some offenses on the disciplinary action charts also mean a violation of local or state law. School authorities may notify appropriate law enforcement authorities. Law enforcement authorities may take action in addition to that taken by the school.
