Consequence: Students who violate the good conduct provision will normally be subject to the following consequences: It should be noted that all terms and conditions of the consequences must be met before a student is eligible to participate in a representational capacity in the extracurricular or co-curricular activity in which he/she was or will be participating. An ineligible student shall attend all practices or rehearsals and remain in “good standing” with the coach or sponsor through the conclusion of the season or activity. The ineligible student will not “suit up” or perform/participate until the period of ineligibility has been completed. School officials have the discretion to deviate from the following “standard” consequences when doing so is deemed appropriate.
First Offense
Student may be required to undergo an assessment by an evaluation agency approved by the Panorama School District when such assessment is deemed relevant to the violation, e.g. alcohol or controlled substances violations. Assessment arrangements are to be made, and fees and expenses are to be paid, by the student and/or parent(s). The student shall be responsible for providing the building administration with written verification that the required assessment has been completed. Students charged with traffic violations or misdemeanors are NOT required to undergo the assessment.
The student will be suspended from competition for 25% of the current extra-curricular or co- curricular activity season (including any post season competition). If less than 25% of the activities remain, the period of ineligibility not served during that activity would be carried forward, on a pro-rated basis, to the next activity in which the individual regularly participates. If the student is not competing in an activity at the time of the violation, the penalty will be enforced during the next activity the student is involved in. The before-mentioned activity’s season must be completed in good standing with the coach for the suspension to be served.
If a student voluntarily, in a good faith and honest manner, notifies the school of a violation of this policy, prior to being confronted by a school official, this period of ineligibility may be reduced by 50% of the scheduled performances
