Discipline Action

Upon recommendation to the Board of Trustees for expulsion, the College President or designee shall immediately transmit to the Chancellor or designee the entire record of the hearing together with all documentation and recordings of the disciplinary action.

The Chancellor or designee shall review the record of the hearing and documents submitted to verify that all procedural steps of the disciplinary procedures have been completed. If all appropriate steps have been correctly completed, the Board of Trustees shall then be provided with copies of the decision. If prior steps have not been correctly completed, the matter shall be returned to the College for further action to comply with Board Policy.

The Board of Trustees shall consider student disciplinary actions at any regularly scheduled public meeting held and should do so within thirty (30) days of receipt of the recommendation by the Chancellor.

The Board of Trustees shall, unless otherwise requested by the student involved, hold closed sessions to consider a suspension or expulsion if a public hearing upon such question would be in violation of Education Code Section 76240 et seq. protecting the privacy of student records. Before calling such closed session, the Board of Trustees shall, in writing, by registered or certified mail or by personal service, notify the student or the student and his or her parent(s), or guardian (if the student is a minor), of the intent of the Board of Trustees to call and hold such closed session. Unless the student, or his/her parent(s) or guardian shall, in writing, within forty-eight (48) hours after receipt of such written notice of intention, request that the Board of Trustees consider the matter in a public meeting, then the hearing to consider such matters shall be conducted by the Board of Trustees in closed session. If such written request is served upon the Chancellor, the meeting shall be public. Whether the matter is considered at a closed session or at a public meeting, the final action of the Board of Trustees shall be taken at a public meeting and the result of such action shall be a public record.

Upon review, the Board of Trustees will either uphold, modify, remand, or reject the decision of the College President or designee. The Board of Trustees’ action shall be limited to a review of the record of the Disciplinary Hearing Committee, and the decisions of the Disciplinary Hearing Committee and the College President or designee. The Board of Trustees’ action shall be final and binding on all parties.
