CODE OF DISCIPLINE
Quality schools are active in their commitment to a philosophy of student discipline that is fair, consistent, and effective. The purpose of these procedures is to promote the development of student citizenship and learning by maintaining a safe and educationally conducive environment for students, faculty and members of the community. Effective discipline is possible only when students, parents, and school personnel know, understand, and support the school rules and regulations. Correspondingly, they should also understand and support the consequences of misbehavior. Only with effective discipline can students have the maximum opportunity to develop emotionally, socially, and intellectually.
All students are expected to be familiar with the information contained in this booklet of discipline procedures. A committee of administrators, students, and teachers reviews the policy annually.
The Colegio de Santa Ana Discipline Board will provide due process in all matters of significant discipline, such as student suspensions and expulsions. The nature of due process will vary with the severity of the violation and the proposed discipline.
Students are subject to suspension, expulsion or other discipline for misconduct as described in these Discipline Procedures that occurs:
a) during school time,
b) on school grounds or at any school supervised or school sponsored activity,
c) going to or from school related activities,
d) during off-campus activities where the violation is reasonably related to school matters, and
e) in places adjacent to school grounds designated and publicized by the building principals as having a reasonable relationship to school matters.
Student discipline refers to the desire and/or expected norm of conduct of students and the corresponding disciplinary sanctions for violations thereof

Colegio de Santa Ana will provide due process in all matters of significant student discipline, such as student suspensions and expulsions. The nature of due process will vary with the severity of the violation and the proposed discipline. However, the essential elements of due process are notice of the misconduct with which the student is charged and an opportunity for the student to respond unless otherwise not recommended due to psychological or other personal reasons. Where appropriate and legally permissible, the School Discipline Board will strive to maintain the anonymity of student witnesses.
While implementing due process, the Prefect of Discipline/Administrator or a designee authorized to suspend will confer with the student and will investigate the matter. During this conference, the administrator will inform the student of the violation, state the reasons for the proposed disciplinary action and give the student the opportunity to respond. If the school designee handling the case suspends the student, the designee will attempt to notify the student's parent or legal guardian either by telephone or in writing (written notice) to the student's parent(s) or legal guardian. If the stated means are not possible, a transmittal notice through the student will be utilized instead.
The student's parent(s) or legal guardian may request the Discipline Committee Board for a conference appeal to be conducted within five (5) academic days upon receipt of the Discipline Committee decision. If the student is suspended, the suspension will remain in effect pending the resolution of the conference.
In cases when parents wouldn't commit to cooperate in the investigation proceeding, a notice transmittal delay, or notice blockage, the case will merit to push through with the authorization of the school administrators and any pending sanctions will be executed (except for Category III and IV cases where the presence of the parents will be necessitated to further the case). This will also apply for Tardiness and Absences Sanctions.
In case when parents don't affirm to the decision of the school, a third party (school lawyer, education board, etc.) will hold the conference and will arrange the resolution of the matter for and in behalf of the school and the parties involved.
Provisions on Absenteeism
All students are expected to be in classes, study halls, or assigned areas each period of the school day.
Under the Colegio de Santa Ana Code, absences may only be authorized for the following reasons:
Death in the immediate family
Observance of a religious holiday
Situations beyond the control of the student as determined by the administration, such as hospitalization or serious illness, for which the school receives timely, acceptable documentation
Circumstances which cause reasonable concern to the parent for the safety or health of the student.
A parent/legal guardian is responsible for informing the adviser, the Attendance Officer and the Principal's Office of their student's absence within 24 hours. Excessive absences that are non-school related may require further documentation as reasonable requested and approved by the school Principal.
A. Excessive Authorized Absences from Class:
After an absence, a student must present an excuse letter signed by the parents/guardian to be presented to the class adviser noted by the Guidance Counselor.
A student will be dropped from the roll of the academic year if he/she has incurred absences beyond the 20% of the total number of days of the school calendar allowed him/her.
Field trips, school sponsored activities, and other school-related absences do not count towards excessive absences. However, participation in such activities may be limited based on a student's attendance record.
B. Unauthorized Absenteeism from Class:
A student with no excuse letter will still be considered absent for the day until an excuse letter duly signed by his/her parents/guardian is presented to the Prefect of Students and from whence, an admission slip will be issued. Regular occurrences of this kind will subject the pupil to one of the administrative sanctions imposed under the student discipline.
C. Perfect Attendance
The qualification for Perfect Attendance necessitates no record of absence (whether excused or unexcused / authorized or unauthorized), no record of Tardiness either in class or school. Also, the category requires presence from school within the schedule of classes.
Provisions on Tardiness
Since teachers and students need to make full use of instructional time, students must report to class on time.
If the student is unauthorized tardy to class, the teacher shall admit the student to class, record the tardy in the attendance record and the following will occur as a result of the first and subsequent unauthorized tardiness:
1st - 2nd Violation: The teacher may confer with the student and may assign one detention to be served with the teacher.

5th and subsequent Violation: The teacher will refer the matter to the Counselors and from which a referral to the Prefect of Students will be made for further action.
Tardiness to School:
Because school must open in an orderly basis each day, students must report to school on time. Students who arrive after the official start of their school day must sign in at the Guidance Office immediately upon arrival and before reporting to class. Failure to do so may result in detentions or suspensions.
Students who came to school after 8:00am will only be admitted in the school campus if accompanied by the parent/guardian.
ECE to Grade 3
Violations made in these grade levels will be handled by the respective adviser or Guidance Counselor until a maximum of 20 tardiness was made which will give the student the lowest possible grade in Conduct for the said covered grading period.

Tampering with the gate pass is subject to disciplinary action.
Each classroom is issued a hall pass for use when a student needs to go out of their classroom excluding break periods (recess and lunch break), like a need to go to the rest room. This limits the number of students outside of their classroom and avoid loitering during class hours.
Tampering or damage to the hall pass is subject to disciplinary action (individual or as a group/section).
Issued for Tardy students or for other such intention of admission.
Used by the offices to call on students for certain business matters.
OTHER IMPORTANT MATTERS:
Following consideration of such factors as frequency of the behavior, severity of the behavior and age of the student, principals may use their discretion in establishing the duration of any suspension up to a maximum of ten (10) days.
Also, the disciplinary consequences set forth above are guidelines only, and action taken by school officials or the Board of Education may be more or less severe where appropriate.
Students and their personal effects are subject to search (by authorized school personnel or their designee) whenever school authorities have reasonable suspicion that the search will produce evidence that the student has violated a school rule or the law. The search to be conducted should have proper authorization coming from the school heads or their designees. To maintain order and security in the schools, school authorities may inspect and search places and areas such as lockers, desks, parking lots, and other school property and equipment owned or controlled by the school, as well as personal effects left in those places and areas by the students, without notice to or the consent of the students, and without a search warrant. School authorities may request the assistance of law enforcement officials for the purpose of conducting inspections and searches or lockers, desks, parking lots, and other school property and equipment owned or controlled by the school for illegal drugs, weapons or other illegal or dangerous substances or materials under scrutiny. If a search conducted in accordance with this section produces evidence that the student has violated or is violating either the law, local ordinance, or the school's discipline policies or rules, such evidence may be seized by school authorities, and disciplinary action may be taken. School authorities may also turn over such evidence to law enforcement authorities.
The school reserves the right to impose disciplinary measures not contained herein which shall affect the general well-being of the pupil/student body of the school.
When a student is suspended or expelled from school, the student is denied entry to any Colegio de Santa Ana School property and to all activities under the direction of Colegio de Santa Ana regardless of time or location unless prior permission is obtained from the Superintendent. If a student who is suspended or expelled trespasses on any school property, the student may be charged with trespassing by the Principal.
