*Reported to ADE ** Required to be reported to local law enforcement; also reported to ADE FUSD #1 STUDENT DISCIPLINE INFRACTION GLOSSARY A GUIDE TO DISCIPLINARY ACTIONS VERSION 2016-2017 DISCIPLINARY POLICY Students at FUSD K-12 Schools have the right to a quality education free from unnecessary disruptions and distractions. Effective and appropriate learning occurs more readily in a school/campus environment relatively free from behavioral problems. The entire school community (parents, students, school personnel and community members) share in the responsibility for maintenance of a positive campus climate. The administration, teaching staff and other school personnel have the responsibility to determine when a student's behavior is inappropriate and disruptive or in violation of school rules/regulations or policy. P ursuant to Policy JK, “FUSD’s policies and procedures will apply to all students traveling to, attending, and returning from school, and while visiting another school or at a school-sanctioned activity and may be imposed if the student’s behavior affects the school order.” Off Campus Behavior A.R.S. § 15-843 requires the governing board of this district to prescribe rules for the discipline, suspension and expulsion of pupils, and those rules shall include procedures for dealing with pupils who have committed or who are believed to have committed a crime . This statut e does not include any limitation that a student’s crime need be committed on-campus for the student to be subject to discipline, suspension, or expulsion. See Op. Atty. Gen. No. 189- 096. AG Opinion I89-096 on A.R.S 15-843 "makes no distinction as to the location of a crime a pupil committed or is believed to have committed”. Thus, our district holds authority to discipline students whose presence in school is considered to be a threat to the moral well-being of other students or such conduct that interferes with the health, well- being, and safety of other students. Violation of a Local, State, or Federal Law In addition to school rules/regulations or policy, a student shall not violate any Federal, State, or Local law. A.R.S. 15-341 requires schools and school employees to report to local law enforcement any suspected crime against a person or property that is a serious offense or that involves a deadly weapon or dangerous instrument or serious physical injury and any conduct that poses threat of death or serious physical injury to employees, students or anyone on school property. A.R.S. 13-3620 requires school employees who reasonably believe that a minor has been the victim of child abuse, physical injury, or neglect to immediately make a report to law enforcement or Child Protective Services. Abuse of a teacher or other school employee while performing official duties is a criminal violation of Arizona Law A.R.S. 15-507 DISCIPLINARY ACTION - SUSPENSION AND EXPULSION SUSPENSION: Define Suspension : “Suspension” means the temporary withdrawal of the privilege of attending school for a specific period of time. The policy of FUSD K-12 Schools, which relates to student suspension, is in accordance with Arizona Revised

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
