Engaging in acts that reflect affiliation in a gang. A “gang” is defined as any group of three or more people with a common name or common identifying signs, symbols, tattoos, graffiti, attire, or other distinguishing characteristics which engage in illegal activity. Gang-related activity can be intimidating to students, parents and staff and is disruptive to the educational process. Although this list is not all inclusive, examples of inappropriate and unacceptable behaviors are such things as gang graffiti on school property, gang fights and/or initiation rituals, and criminal acts.

Long-term Suspension as a stand-alone disposition requires a police report that indicates gang-related activity.*
