Disciplinary Policy

All students are entitled to a full and free education. The rules and regulations of the Career Institute of Technology have been made so that you might pursue your free education as successfully as possible. Any disciplinary action taken by the school is intended to benefit you through improving your understanding of the important role that rules and regulations serve in helping you develop the necessary self-disci­pline skills that will enhance your opportunity to success on-the-job.
Cooperation, dependability, the ability to follow rules, getting along with other workers and supervisors, getting to work on time, and getting to work regularly are all important factors for getting and keeping a job. Developing self-discipline skills allows you to grow in consequences of your decisions and acts in accordance with that understanding. In order to have these rights you have responsibilities. For these reasons, learning to be a responsible citizen should be an integral part of your personal and educational goals.

Therefore, any disciplinary action taken to correct behavior is then intended to improve attitude and subsequent behavior, not to be vin­dictive. The disciplinary actions available to the school are regulated by law and school district policy. The disciplinary options chosen depends on: (1) the objective sought in a case to help you, (2) nature of the offense, (3) nature of the student’s previous behavior, and (4) stated policy or precedent based on previous actions. However, serious offenses in the nature of assaults, weapons, al­cohol and drugs are dealt with by contacting local law enforcement authorities. Behavior that leads to the above does create a juvenile record that will affect your ability to accomplish your career goals.
