Step 3: Parents will be informed of the results of the investigation via phone call by the assistant principal and/or guidance counselor. All paperwork filed in discipline files.
Step 4: With the consent of the respective parties, students will be offered an opportunity to participate in a restorative meeting.
Step 5: Repeated offenses shall constitute further disciplinary actions and possible referral to law enforcement.
