Student Services » Discipline


Lammersville Unified School District uses a progressive discipline approach to assigning consequences for undesired student behavior. Administrator referrals are issued for repetitive offenses or serious, unacceptable behavior. The following are examples of infractions that necessitate an immediate principal referral:

• Fighting
• Actions causing harm to self and/or others
• Harassment (verbal and physical)
• Vulgarity, Obscenity, Profanity
• Offensive Racial Remarks
• Extreme Defiance of Authority
• Defacement of school/personal property
• Stealing/cheating

Administrative Referrals are issued by either the principal or vice-principal. In most cases, these are generated when a student is sent to the office with a Referral to Administrator. Consequences are issued based on school discipline policy and in accordance with Education Code.

Definitions of consequences are below:
Detention – Detention assigned by Teacher, Principal or Assistant Principal within the detention guidelines, as explained by the assigning administrator.
In-house Suspension/ Reflection Room – The student is excluded from class and spends the day in a designated area supervised by the administration, completing class work assigned by the teacher.
XXI. Suspension and Expulsion
Suspension – In accordance with Education Code 48900, a student is excluded from school and school activities. The student may not return to regular attendance or the school campus until the total number of suspension days has been completed.

Recommendation for Expulsion – Due to the severity of a behavior, and in accordance with Education Code 48900, a student may be recommended for expulsion from school. If expulsion is ruled, the student may not attend any school in the district for a determined period of time.
