Suspensions and Expulsions
Perhaps the most important function of the Positive Youth Development department is following due process regarding suspensions and expulsions. In this aspect, we strictly abide by the guidelines set by California and Federal law. We understand that there are diverse factors and circumstances that affect student behavior. Our primary goal is to help students who find themselves the subject of disciplinary action due to poorly made decisions. Of course, this depends on whether or not said violations are serious criminal offenses or not, in which cases the district must contact the pertaining law-enforcement agencies, especially in cases where said violations cause serious harm, destruction, or life-endangerment.
If you do not agree with the expulsion, you have the right to file an appeal with the County Board of Education, School-Linked Services at (909) 386-2424.
Formal personnel or discrimination complaints must be filed with the Affirmative Action Office located at 777 N F. Street, San Bernardino, CA 92410 at (909) 381-1122.
