CENTRALIA COLLEGE -- STUDENT ((CONDUCT CODE -- POLICY)) RIGHTS AND RESPONSIBILITIES CODE


AMENDATORY SECTION(Amending Order 72-1, filed 1/19/72)

WAC 132L-120-010
((Student attendance policy.)) Preamble.

((Students are expected to attend all classes for which they enroll during the particular quarter. Nonattendance by a student may cause him to forfeit his right to continue in any class. He may be subject to withdrawal from the class roll and be assigned a grade of "W" by his instructor should he, without prior arrangement or without early report to the college, be absent the first four calendar days after his class begins, be absent during the quarter for four consecutive class days in a course of 3 credits or more, or for two consecutive days in a course of 2 credits or less, or be absent in a consistent manner during the quarter.

Integral components of this policy which faculty members should give consideration are:

(1) Unavoidable absence due to emergencies, such as illness or bereavement. These should be reported, by the student, to the Registrar by letter or telephone so that arrangements with the student's instructors for the necessary extension of absence can be made.

(2) Hardships beyond the student's control which cause him to miss class. The instructor may approve alternative methods for the student to satisfy the attendance requirements of the course.

(3) Courses oriented more toward student proficiency and achieved competency than they are toward exposing subject matter to the students. Prior to or during the first week of the quarter the instructor shall set forth the conditions under which competency or proficiency may be considered in lieu of student class attendance.

(4) The student who has received eight hours or one-half of his class load or more of "W" in his preceding quarter. The administration will request his instructors to keep an account of his attendance pursuant to Academic Standards more fully described under that heading in the Handbook.

(5) Students whose tuition fees are paid by a state or federal agency. These students may have their attendance records reported at the request of their benefactor.)) Centralia College is a dynamic learning community that promotes growth and development by offering opportunities to gain knowledge, entrance skills, examine values, and pursue learning options. The college is committed to quality life-long learning through its values of respect, responsibility, and responsiveness. To that end, Centralia College maintains a strong commitment to providing a civil and nondisruptive learning environment. Students are reminded that they assume certain responsibilities of performance and conduct which have been reasonably established in order to accomplish Centralia College's education goals. Therefore, the college expects that students will conduct themselves as responsible members of the college community, will comply with the rules and regulations of the college, will maintain high standards of integrity and honesty, and will respect the rights, privileges, and property of other members of the college community.

Student responsibilities.

(1) Students who choose to attend Centralia College also choose to participate actively in the adult learning process offered by the college. As a process, learning is not a product or commodity that is bought and sold, but rather, is a relationship between teachers who are willing and competent to teach and learners who are willing and competent to learn. Therefore, the responsibility for learning is shared equally between students and faculty.

(2) The college is responsible for providing its students with an educational environment rich in the high quality resources needed by students to attain their individual educational goals. In return, students are responsible for making themselves aware of the full breadth of the resources available, for the timely choosing and appropriate use of those resources, and for the specific behavioral tasks necessary for attaining desired learning outcomes. Examples of specific student responsibilities are:

(a) To know and adhere to the college's policies, practices, and procedures;

(b) To participate actively in the learning process, both in and out of the classroom;

Therefore, the chief judicial affairs officer shall seek the assistance of other college departments or offices in investigating student behavioral problems. The chief judicial affairs officer will be as proactive as is possible concerning the resolution of student behavioral problems and use reasonable arbitration and conflict resolution methods in order to prevent such problems from escalating. The chief judicial affairs officer may seek and authorize settlements involving disputes related to student conduct when such settlements will better serve the college's broader interests.

(2) Administration of the disciplinary procedure is the responsibility of the chief judicial affairs officer. The chief judicial affairs officer shall serve as the principal investigator and prosecutor for alleged violations of this code.

(3) In situations of apparent misconduct or apparent unauthorized presence in a college facility, it may be necessary for properly identified college personnel to ask a person to produce evidence of being a currently enrolled student at the college. Failure to comply with a legitimate request for identification from properly identified college personnel is a violation of this code and may result in a disciplinary action if the person is found to be a student. In emergency situations, cases of misconduct, or where there is a substantial danger to the college community or college property, failure to produce identification by a student may result in the assumption by college personnel that the person questioned is not a student and may result in direct civil or criminal action.

(4) The instructor is responsible for conduct in the classroom or any course-related activity or event and is authorized to take such steps as are necessary when behavior of the student disrupts the normal classroom procedure. Instructors may remove a student for the single class session in which such disruptive behavior occurs. When such behavior results in expulsion from a class session, the instructor must report the infraction in writing to the chief judicial affairs officer at the earliest opportunity. The student is automatically permitted to return to the next class session pending the outcome of any investigation or disciplinary hearings by the chief judicial affairs officer. If the student repeats behavior in any class session that again disrupts the normal classroom procedure, the student may be removed again for that class session by the instructor who shall again report the infraction to the chief judicial affairs officer in writing. In all cases involving classroom disruption, the chief judicial affairs officer will proceed with the investigation and/or disciplinary hearings in the quickest possible time consistent with the procedural requirements established in this code.

(5) The person in charge of any college office, department, or facility is responsible for conduct in that office, department, or facility and is authorized to take such steps as are necessary when behavior of the student disrupts the normal office procedure. The person in charge may remove a student for the single day in which such disruptive behavior occurs. When such behavior results in expulsion from an office, department, or facility, the person in charge must report the infraction in writing to the chief judicial affairs officer at the earliest opportunity. The student is automatically permitted to return the next day pending the outcome of any investigation or disciplinary hearings by the chief judicial affairs officer. If the student repeats behavior at any time in the future that again disrupts the normal office procedure, the student may be removed again for a single day by the person in charge who shall again report the infraction to the chief judicial affairs officer in writing. In all cases involving office disruption, the chief judicial affairs officer will proceed with the investigation and/or disciplinary hearings in the quickest possible time consistent with the procedural requirements established in this code.

(6) The student has the right to appeal any disciplinary action of an instructor or college employee to the chief judicial affairs officer in accordance with the procedures set forth in this code.

(7) A student formally charged or under investigation for a violation of this code may not excuse himself or herself from disciplinary hearings by withdrawing from the college.

Definition of disciplinary action.

In accordance with the procedures outlined in this code, the following disciplinary actions may be imposed upon students found to be in violation of this code:

(1) Warning: Notice in writing that the student has violated one or more terms of this code of conduct and that continuation or repetition of the same or similar may be cause for more severe disciplinary action. This sanction is not subject to appeal.

(2) Disciplinary probation: Formal action placing specific conditions upon the student's continued attendance and warning the student that further misconduct may subject the student to suspension or dismissal. Probation may be for a limited period or may be for the duration of the student's attendance at the college.

(3) Restitution: Reimbursement for damage to or misappropriation of property, or for injury to persons, or for reasonable costs incurred by the college in pursuing an initial investigation. This may take the form of appropriate service or other compensation. Failure to make restitution, or to make in writing college-approved arrangements to pay, will result in suspension for an indefinite period provided that the student may be reinstated upon payment.

(4) Change of a grade: Applies only to violations regarding cheating, fabrication, facilitating academic dishonesty, multiple submission, and plagiarism. The college in accordance with the grading policy of the college assigns students grades. Instructors as part of the professional academic judgment and evaluation of the instructor ordinarily assign students grades. In the case of a finding of cheating, fabrication, facilitating academic dishonesty, or plagiarism as defined in this code, and only as a result of the official disciplinary processes as outlined in this code, the chief judicial affairs officer may authorize an instructor to change the grade, or may record a change in grade, for the academic exercise in which academic dishonesty occurred or for the entire course in which academic dishonesty occurred. This penalty may be imposed in addition to other authorized penalties as outlined in this code. Instructors may issue an "incomplete" ("I") grade pending the outcome of any investigation or disciplinary hearing by the chief judicial affairs officer related to academic dishonesty.

(5) Summary suspension: Immediate exclusion from classes and other privileges or activities in accordance with this code.

(6) Suspension: Dismissal from the college and from status as a student for a stated period of time. The notice suspending the student will state in writing the term of the suspension and any condition(s) that must be met before readmission is granted. The student so suspended must demonstrate that the conditions for readmission have been met. There is to be no refund of tuition or fees for the quarter in which the action is taken, but tuition and fees paid in advance for a subsequent quarter are to be refunded. Suspension may also include withdrawal and/or limitations in one or more courses, services, or programs without revocation of student status.

(7) Deferred suspension: Notice of suspension from the college with the provision that the student may remain enrolled contingent on meeting any condition(s) specified. Not meeting the contingency shall immediately invoke the suspension for the period of time and under the conditions originally imposed.

(8) Dismissal: The surrender of all rights and privileges of membership in the college community and exclusion from the campus and college owned or controlled facilities without any possibility of return. There is to be no refund of tuition or fees for the quarter in which the action is taken, but tuition and fees paid in advance for a subsequent quarter are to be refunded.

(9) Forfeiture of state-funded financial aid: Applies only to violations regarding hazing. The forfeiture of any entitlement to state-funded grants, scholarships, or awards for a specified period.

(10) Withdrawal of official recognition: Any student organization, association, or student living group that knowingly permits hazing to be conducted by its members or by others subject to its direction or control shall be deprived of any official recognition or approval granted by Centralia College. In addition, any organization, association, or student living group that knowingly permits hazing is strictly liable for harm caused to persons or property resulting from hazing. If the organization, association, or living group is a corporation whether for profit or nonprofit, the individual directors of the corporation may be held individually liable for damages. Withdrawal of official recognition may also be applied to any organization, association, or living group for other violations of Centralia College policies, rules, or regulations concerning such organizations.

(11) Disqualification from athletics: Any student found by the college to have violated this code related to the use, possession, sale, or delivery of legend drugs is subject to additional sanctions, including disqualification from College-sponsored athletic events.

(12) College or community service: Assignment of labor or responsibilities to any student or student organization with the college or local community. May also include mandatory attendance at educational programs or courses or other assignments.

(13) Fines: Monetary fines up to five thousand dollars for any student organization or up to five hundred dollars for any student. Restitution may be added as an additional monetary sanction.

(14) Protective or no-contact order: Prohibition of direct or indirect physical and/or verbal contact with another individual or group. Any form of communication may be limited. Restrictions on locations or specified minimum distances may be imposed. Other reasonable restrictions to protect the safety and welfare of others may also be imposed. An immediate, protective or no-contact order may also be issued by the chief judicial affairs officer or his or her representative prior to any disciplinary hearing upon the sworn or affirmed written and signed testimony of any complainant that the complainant is in reasonable fear of intimidation, harassment, physical or emotional abuse, or harm, provided that the subject of such order is duly notified in writing either in person or by first class mail and is provided the opportunity to appeal such an order at an initial disciplinary hearing within seven days after notification to the chief judicial affairs officer in writing of intent to appeal. An appeal may be combined with the normal disciplinary action of an initial disciplinary hearing if charges have also been filed.

(15) Professional evaluation: Referral for drug, alcohol, psychiatric, psychological, or medical evaluation may be required. Recommendations as part of any such evaluation may become part of any sanction. If the evaluation indicates that the student is not capable of functioning within the college community, the student will remain suspended until and unless future evaluation recommends that the student is capable of reentering the college. The student may choose the professional within the scope of practice and with the professional credentials as defined by the college. The student shall pay for the cost of the evaluation. The college reserves the right to send a student to a professional of its own choosing at cost to the college.

(16) Hold on awarding of degree or issuance of official transcript: In the event that the conditions of other sanctions such as, but not limited to, fines, restitution, and community service, are not fulfilled, the college may place a hold on the issuance of a degree or certificate and may place a hold on the issuance of an official transcript. In addition, the college may prevent further registration. These holds will be lifted upon fulfillment of the terms and conditions of the imposed sanction.
