STUDENT CONDUCT HANDBOOK

Upland High School follows progressive steps in assigning disciplinary consequences for rule violations.  Our goal is not to punish, but to change negative behavior.  Students are expected to follow all rules and policies outlined in the California State Education Code, the UUSD Parent and Student Handbook and the Upland High School Policy Pages.  These policy pages are the first step in this process and constitute your warnings.

Major infractions may result in immediate removal from Upland High School on the first offense.

Any violation of school or district policy may result in a disciplinary referral.  If a student accumulates five referrals during the school year, he/she may be placed on probationary status. Probationary status is from quarter to quarter. Each quarter ends as follows:  October 20 (1st), December 21 (2nd), March 23 (3rd) and June 7 (last)October 21 (1st)

 Reasons for referrals (this is not an inclusive list):

Defiance of Authority   

Disruption   

Truancy

Once on probationary status, the student will be subject to one or more of the following:

  • Loss of parking privilege
  • Exclusion from attending dances, rallies and school activities
  • Exclusion from graduation ceremony
  • Removal or suspension from extra-curricular activities
  • Pay restitution
  • Community service to the school

In order to be removed from probationary status, the parent, student and Discipline Director will determine a program of positive actions to be completed so that the student may resume regular status.  Probationary status carries over from year to year.

  • Increase quarter grades by one full GPA point

  13. Progressive Discipline Plan

The purpose of progressive discipline at Upland High School is to teach students appropriate behaviors so that they may be successful in the learning environment. Implementing specific behavioral interventions with the incorporation of our Positive Behavior Support (PBS), while working with parents as partners in the process is critical in supporting student responsibility and success.

Teachers should maintain accurate documentation as student disciplinary concerns arise.

Level 1: Warning

Warnings are given by the teacher as a means of redirecting inappropriate student behavior and directly teaching behavior expectations.

Level 1 warnings are classroom level interventions.

Level 2: Warning with Level 2 Intervention

Warning given by teacher and documented.

Student issued Level 2 Intervention such as detention.

Phone call made to parent and documented.

Level 2 interventions are classroom-based with documentation and mandatory parent contact.

Level 3: Referral with Documentation

Teacher sends student to Discipline Director with completed referral form e-mailed or hand delivered.

Parent phone call by teacher and discipline office documented.

Consequences will begin with SS/detention and may progressively escalate for subsequent referrals.
