R 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.

In addition to the consequences specified here, school officials will notify law enforcement and document violations in the student's discipline file pursuant to law and Board policy.

Extended Summary Suspensions
An asterisk * within the scope and sequence of a discipline consequence indicates that the potential exists for an extended summary suspension, or a suspension of greater than ten days. In accordance with state statutes § 160.261, § 167.161 and § 167.171 RSMo. Student suspensions of greater than ten days require a Review Meeting before the superintendent or designee. Extended summary suspensions can be up to 180 school days.
Incidents that happen outside of school hours may be punishable per the school discipline policy if they carry over into regular school hours or if premeditation took place during school hours.
Detention may be assigned during recess, lunch, after school or Saturday School as determined by the building principal.
