Removal of a disruptive student
from College facilities:
An instructor may remove a disruptive student from the classroom
by informing the student that a specific behavior is
inappropriate and then requesting the student leave. If help is
needed, the instructor should call Student Services. The
instructor should then contact the Dean of Student Services to
begin a formal discipline process by submitting a written
summary of the infraction. The Dean of Student Services will
determine if the student is allowed to return to class.
ANY COLLEGE ADMINISTRATOR MAY
REMOVE A DISRUPTIVE STUDENT FROM COLLEGE FACILITIES.
If the safety of the student or others is jeopardized, the
Dean of Student Services may summarily suspend the student until
the situation is fully investigated. After the investigation,
the Dean of Student Services may recommend extending the
suspension or expulsion to the President.
- Take the student aside and describe the inappropriate
behavior. Be specific, and tell him/her the behavior must
stop. If the behavior does not stop, the student should be
asked to leave (by the instructor of the classroom; by an
administrator if elsewhere on campus).
- Immediately write an anecdotal description including
date, time, specific description of the behavior, and your
conversation with the student. This documentation is
necessary should the behavior continue and disciplinary
action be needed.
If at any time you fear for your
personal safety or that a situation may become unsafe, remove
yourself and any others who may be in danger and contact 9+911.
