Since our quest for excellence at Osceola High School extends to all areas of school life, we expect our students to conduct themselves in a mature, considerate and respectful manner. Violations of the disciplinary code are grouped into four levels. The Deans’ Office typically implements disciplinary procedures. A complete listing of disciplinary infractions and possible consequences are explained in the Osceola District Code of Student Conduct; all students will receive and sign for a copy of the Code of Student Conduct during the first week of school.
The Osceola District Code of Student Conduct provides a detailed explanation of the infractions and possible consequences for breaches of the code. It is recommended that students and parents read the information contained in the Code of Student Conduct.
Offenses are assigned a level based on the seriousness of the offense, the disruption to the learning environment and the level of threat to the safety of students and staff.
Level 4 offenses are minor acts of misconduct that interfere with the orderly operation of the classroom, a school function, extracurricular/co-curricular program, or approved transportation. The school district employee involved will intervene in the misconduct. If further action is necessary, the school district employee will submit a disciplinary referral to the Dean’s Office.
Level 3 offenses are acts of misconduct that are more serious or disruptive than Level 4 offenses. Level 3 also includes repeated acts of Level 4 offenses, and acts directed against people or property that do not seriously endanger the health or safety of others. A disciplinary referral will be submitted to the Dean’s Office for these offenses.
Level 2 infractions are major acts of misconduct. They include repeated misconduct acts from Levels 3 & 4, serious disruptions of school order and threats to the health, safety and property of others. A disciplinary referral will be submitted to the Dean’s Office for these offenses. Level 2 offenses may result in a long term suspension, possible recommendation for expulsion and/or referral to law enforcement.
Level 1 acts of misconduct are the most serious offenses. A disciplinary referral will be submitted to the Dean’s Office for these offenses. Level 1 offenses will result in a mandatory long term suspension with a possible recommendation for expulsion, alternative placement and/or referral to law enforcement school officer.
The administration reserves the right to modify the discipline guidelines as needed to insure all students are provided safe learning environment.
