Student Supports, Behavior Interventions & Discipline


Expulsion is our District's most serious discipline approach, requiring approval from the Board of Education. For up to two semesters, expelled students may not participate in any district or school-sponsored activity, including regular classes, dances, athletics and performing arts events. Instead, these students must attend a community day school or alternative education program.

For more information regarding our District's expulsion process, as well as Suspension and Expulsion/Due Process, please read Board Policy (BP 5144.1) and Administrative Regulations (AR 5144.1).

Complaints Regarding Student Discipline

Vacaville Unified School District has specific procedures for handling different types of complaints. The District's policies and Administrative Regulations contain more details concerning the process for lodging complaints and corresponding appeal rights. The District encourages the early, informal resolution of complaints whenever possible. Many issues are best resolved by discussions between the parties involved. We encourage individuals to communicate with the school site administrators to discuss concerns prior to submitting a Citizen's Complaint. If you wish to file a complaint regarding student disciplinary matters, please complete a Citizen's Complaint form and submit directly to the Director of Student Attendance and Welfare.

Student Discipline Guidelines

Please refer to the District's Annual Notification in English, or Spanish that was provided to all students and parents/guardians at the beginning of the school year.
