Level II Process

Level II sanctions apply to a Report of Violation where the highest recommended sanction has a moderate impact on the responding student’s access to academic and social opportunities. Examples ofLevel II sanctions include:

  • Disciplinary Probation
  • Fines
  • Health Education Program
  • Reflection/Engagement Program
  • Restitution
  • Community Service
  • Loss of Privileges

Level II sanctions allow a complainant to require a meeting or for a student to request a meeting (Preliminary Meeting). At this meeting, the student can appeal the decision of responsibility and the sanction(s) directly to the complainant. The meeting must be scheduled within two school days of the student’s receipt of the Report of Violation. After the Report of Violation is prepared and sent to the student, there are three different possible next steps.

  1. If neither the complainant nor the student requests a meeting:
    • If the student accepts responsibility for the charge, the student must notify the complainant and CS by following a link in the Report of Violation that generates an email response. When that occurs, no further action is required.
    • If the student does not agree they must request a meeting with the complainant within two school days, of receiving the Report of Violation, otherwise, responsibility and sanctions are final.  No appeal of the case is available if the respondent chooses not to meet with the complainant.
       
  2. If the complainant or respondent asks for a meeting:
    • For students to have the option of an appeal they must have a Preliminary Meeting with the complainant
    • If the respondent does not agree to the finding of responsibility or the sanction, the respondent may request a review. The Appeal Petition must be submitted to CS within two school days of the Preliminary Meeting.
    • The Respondent may not request an appeal if they do not attend a Preliminary Meeting.
       
  3. If the student takes no action: If the student does not meet with the complainant despite their request the responsibility and sanctions are final.
