However, if disciplinary action is required, the following steps will be followed:
- The instructor will talk to their student about the behavior
- The parent/guardian will be called about the student’s behavior. A meeting between the parent, child, teacher and School Director may be called.
- The Director of the School will contact the parent/guardian informing them of the student’s continued behavioral problems. The student will be suspended from class for one week.
- The Director will notify the parents of the infraction and that the student will be expelled from classes for the remainder of the school year.
Depending on the severity of the infraction, Cavod Academy of the Arts reserves the right to accelerate this process and expel the student without intermediary steps. Should a student be expelled, the student is welcome to re-enroll during the next term. However, if disciplinary problems continue, the student will be permanently expelled and not allowed to re-enroll in the future.
