V. APPEAL OF ADMINISTRATIVE DECISION

The student may submit an appeal in writing to the Student Conduct Administrator postmarked within ten (10) school days of the date of the written decision for one or more of the following purposes:

  1. New Information: To consider new information, sufficient to alter a decision, or other relevant facts not brought out in the Student Conduct Administrator's investigation, because such information and/or facts were not known to the student appealing at the time of the Student Conduct Administrator's investigation.
  2. Procedural Error: To determine whether the Student Conduct Administrator's investigation was conducted fairly in light of the complaint and information presented, and in conformity with prescribed procedures. Deviations from prescribed procedures will not be a basis for sustaining an appeal unless the deviation(s) resulted in significant prejudice.
  3. Substantive Facts: To determine whether the decision reached regarding the accused student was based on information that, if believed by the Student Conduct Administrator, was sufficient to establish that a violation of the Student Conduct Code occurred.

The student's written appeal will be forwarded to the Student Conduct Appellate Board for an appeal hearing. A student's written appeal that fails to meet one or more of the above purposes shall immediately be denied and the Student Conduct Administrator's decision and sanction(s) shall become final.
