General Disruptive Conduct and/or Defiance

Any behavior or conduct that disrupts or interferes with the operation of the public schools, including individual classes. This can also be behavior that leads a school authority to reasonably forecast that such an interruption or interference is likely to occur unless preventive action is taken. Refusing to comply with any reasonable demand or request by any school official or sponsor or lying to or intentionally misleading any school official at places and times where school personnel have jurisdiction is included in this definition. For example:

  • use of cell phone during instructional time
  • misuse of cell phones and other forms of technology
  • failure to provide school identification upon request
  • inappropriate display of affection
  • any sexual act committed on campus
  • making false accusations regarding staff or students

Note: It is the responsibility of the parent/legal guardian of the student to retrieve confiscated cell phones or other electronic devices according to the individual school’s procedures.
