Code of Pupil Conduct

Each school has developed a school-wide discipline plan consistent with policies in this handbook. A copy is provided to all pupils. Education Code 35291.5.


The Board of Trustees believes that one of the major functions of the public schools is the preparation of youth for responsible citizenship. The district shall foster a learning environment that reinforces the concepts of self-discipline and the acceptance of personal responsibility. In order to maintain an environment conducive to attaining the highest of quality of education in the district, their must exist certain disciplinary policies and regulations relating to pupil conduct which delineate acceptable behavior and provide the basis for sound disciplinary practices within each school in the district. (Education Code 35291.5) The schools shall not tolerate any comments or gestures that denigrate other on account of sex, race, color, religion, ancestry, national origin, handicap or disadvantage. Students shall be subject to disciplinary procedures for bullying other pupils or for using insults, slurs, or fighting words which may disrupt school activities. These policies and regulations will be enforced fairly and uniformly and consistently without regard to race, creed, color, sex, or physical or mental handicaps.

Voluntary Transfer

With the concurrence of the school principal, a pupil may transfer voluntarily to another school if space is available. A pupil who has voluntarily transferred to continuation school shall have the right to return to the comprehensive high school at the beginning of the following school year, or may return at any time with the consent of the superintendent’s designee

Due Process

Pupils have a right to due process under the 14th Amendment to the United States Constitution. Due process for disciplinary actions, including suspensions, administrative transfers and expulsions, includes:

  • If the charges are denied, an explanation of the evidence by school authorities
  • The opportunity for the pupil to explain his/her position
  • Written notice of the charges against the pupil
  • The opportunity to be represented by an advocate
  • The opportunity to question the person making charges and to present witnesses
  • The opportunity to appeal the decision to a higher authority

Police Liaison

The Pleasanton Unified School District has an excellent cooperative relationship with the Pleasanton Police Department. There is a monthly meeting between the two agencies to share information for the safety of all students.

Sexual Harassment/ Pupil to Pupil

Complaints of sexual harassment shall be handled quickly, confidentially and as fairly as possible. Employees and pupils who file sexual harassment complaints shall not be retaliated against for making such a complaint.

  1. Forms of Sexual Harassment
    Sexual harassment may occur as a pattern of degrading sexual speech or action ranging from verbal or physical annoyances or distractions to deliberate intimidations and frank threats or sexual demands. Forms of sexual harassment include, but are not limited to the following:

    • Verbal harassment – Derogatory comments, jokes, or slurs; graphic verbal commentaries about an individual’s body/dress; sexually degrading words used to describe an individual;
    • Physical harassment – Unnecessary or offensive touching, or impeding or blocking movement;
    • Visual harassment – Derogatory or offensive posters, cards, cartoons, graffiti, drawings, or gestures; suggestive or obscene letters, notes or invitations;
    • Sexual favors – Unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature upon which is conditioned an academic or employment benefit, or which unreasonably interferes with an individual’s classroom or work performance or creates an offensive classroom or work environment;
    • Reprisals – Making threatening reprisals after a negative response to sexual advances.
  2. Reporting
    • Supervisors and principals are required to immediately report complaints of sexual harassment to either the Assistant Superintendent, Human Resources or to the Coordinator of Pupil Services. All employees are required to report any case of sexual harassment that they witness or that is brought to their attention by a complainant.
  3. Complaint Procedures
    • Employees – Any employee who believes s/he is being sexually harassed should immediately notify his/her supervisor, principal and/or the Assistant Superintendent, Human Resources. Once a complaint of sexual harassment has been received, an investigator will be appointed by the Assistant Superintendent, and a complete and thorough investigation will be conducted immediately. The Assistant Superintendent will coordinate all investigations regarding a complaint of sexual harassment in situations involving adult perpetrators or victims.
    • Students – Any student who believes s/he is being sexually harassed should immediately notify his/her teacher, counselor, or school administrator. Once a complaint of sexual harassment has been received, an investigator will be appointed by the Coordinator of Pupil Services, and a complete and thorough investigation will be conducted immediately. Student-to-student sexual harassment below grade four is handled as part of the school site discipline plan and is not reported to the Coordinator of Pupil Services.
  4. Investigation
    The investigator shall inform the complainant and witnesses of their rights pursuant to the District policy, including the fact that the complainant and witnesses will not be retaliated against due to their participation in the filing of a complaint. The alleged harasser also will have this policy and his/her rights explained, at the earliest appropriate time, and shall be immediately informed that any retaliation against the complainant and/or witnesses is strictly prohibited, regardless of the accuracy of the complaint and/or statements. All investigations of complaints shall be handled promptly in a serious and sensitive manner, and in as confidential manner as possible. All district employees must cooperate in all investigations.Upon commencement of an investigation, the investigator may follow these procedures:

    • Conduct interviews with: (1) the complainant; (2) the alleged harasser; and (3) any other persons who reasonably may have relevant knowledge concerning the complaint, such as witnesses and victims of similar conduct.
    • Obtain and review any appropriate documentation.
    • Review all factual information gathered through the investigation.
    • Complete a written report on the results of the investigation if sexual harassment occurred. Reports of all substantiated complaints and findings shall be maintained at the District office in a confidential file.
    • Provide a summary of the investigator’s report, to the extent legally permissible, to the complainant and the perpetrator.
    • If appropriate, the investigator shall follow up with the employee or pupil who filed the complaint after a reasonable period of time to ensure that no further impermissible conduct has occurred.
  5. Action Regarding Complaint
    • If the alleged harasser is found to have engaged in sexual harassment, appropriate disciplinary action, as determined by the Superintendent or his/her designee shall be taken by the district. The employee against whom the disciplinary action is to be taken is entitled to due process provided by law, Board policy and current employee agreements. Pupils against whom disciplinary action is to be taken shall be entitled to due process provided by law and Board policy.
    • Appropriate action shall be taken whenever possible to alleviate the effects of the harassment.
  6. Appeal Process
    If either the complainant or the alleged harasser is not satisfied with the findings contained in the investigator’s report, s/he may appeal. Each appeal should be in the form of a letter. For purposes of this regulation, work day is defined as the days in when the district office is open for business to the public.

    • First Appeal – Within ten work days following the receipt of the investigator’s determination, the appeal is made with the appropriate District official: Assistant Superintendent, Human Resources for cases involving any adults and/or Coordinator of Student Services for cases involving students only. Upon a review of the case, the District official will respond in writing within ten work days.
    • Second Appeal – Within ten work days following the receipt of the District’s written response, the appeal is made to the Superintendent if the complaining party is unsatisfied.
    • Final Appeal – Within thirty work days following receipt of the Superintendent’s written response, the matter may be heard in a closed session of the Board of Trustees. The Board’s decision shall be the final decision of the District. Either party may be represented by a conferee or legal counsel when appearing before the Board.

Health Services

Health Services

Health Services Information

The mission of Health Services is to strengthen and facilitate the educational process by improving and protecting the health status of children and by identifying and assisting in the removal or modification of health-related barriers to learning. Health Services; therefore, contributes directly to PUSD’s overall mission of educating students to become well-informed, productive and socially responsible citizens.

Health Offices

A Health Clerk who has been trained in basic CPR and First Aid provides care to the students who visit the School Health Office. Some of the care provided by the Health Clerk, under the supervision of the District Nurses, include basic first aid, medication administration, immunization enforcement, and communicable disease control.
Parents are encouraged to communicate with the School Health Clerk and District Nurses on any health related issues so we can better meet your child’s health needs in school to promote the best learning environment for your student.

To contact your student’s health clerk, please go to each school’s website. To contact the District Nurses, please go to Student Services Contact Us page.

Health Screening

To identify potential health barriers in order to maximize the student’s ability to learn, the district conducts the following screenings mandated by state of California: (Ed Code 49455, 49456, 49452.5)

  • Hearing and Vision: Grades K or 1, 2, 5, and 8, and first year in the California public school system
  • Color Vision: Grades K or 1, boys only.
  • Scoliosis Screening:  Grade 7 girls and Grade 8 boys and girls who are newly enrolled in CA public schools.

In addition, students who are being assessed for initial and three year review for special education services, and students referred by a teacher or parent will also be tested for vision and hearing. Those who do not pass the initial hearing and scoliosis screening will be retested. Parents will be notified and referred for further follow-up only when a problem is identified. Parents may submit a written request for exemption from any of the above health screenings.

Athletic Clearances

Confidential Medical Services

State law requires that parents be notified that pupils in grades 7 through 12 may be excused from school for the purpose of obtaining confidential medical services without the consent of the pupil’s parent or guardian. The District follows state law, Education Code, and District Regulation 5101 and “When excusing a pupil for confidential medical services or verifying such appointments, District staff shall not ask the purpose of such appointments but may contact a medical office to confirm the time of an appointment.”

Food Allergy

Education, cooperation, and awareness are keys to keeping children with food allergies safe. At PUSD, parents, health care providers, school administrators, teachers, district nurses, health clerks and food service staff work together continuously to determine appropriate precautions, procedures, and to develop an individualized plan of action for managing each student’s food allergy in school.

It is important to protect the health of students from risk posed by infectious diseases that transmitted within the school setting. Your child may be excluded from school in accordance with California Education Code section 48210-48214 and section 49451. “Whenever there is a reason to believe that the child is suffering a recognized contagious or infectious disease, he/she shall be sent home and shall not be permitted to return until the school authorities are satisfied that any contagious disease does not exist.”

Please do not send your child to school if he/she has any of the following symptoms:

  1. Common cold: Keep home during period of productive cough and yellow or green nasal discharge
  2. Fever (over 100 degrees) – in some children, a lower temperature represents a fever. Please keep your child home for 24 hours after a fever without the aid of Tylenol or Advil)
  3. Eyes that are red, swollen, crusting or draining
  4. Untreated, draining ears or earache
  5. Diarrhea
  6. Nausea or vomiting (if the pupil has vomited the night before or in the morning, please DO NOT send pupil to school.)
  7. Severe sore throat
  8. Skin rashes of unknown origin or contagious rash requires a clearance from a health care provider that student may return to school.

If a pupil is at school with any of the above, the parent/guardian will be called to pick up the pupil. Under certain circumstances, the parent may be asked to consult a health care provider (HCP) and to provide a written note from a HCP indicating that the pupil may return to school.

Suggestions for staying healthy during flu season, can be found here.

Head lice

This form must be completely filled out annually and signed by the parent/guardian and the child’s health care provider before the child can be assisted with the administration of medication by the district personnel at the school site. The authorized health care provider must be licensed in California.

It is the parent/guardian’s responsibility to provide the school site with all necessary information and special instructions in writing related to the administration of medication to their child. The parent/guardian must immediately notify the school in writing of any changes in the child’s regimen by the health care provider. It is also the child’s responsibility to follow the health care provider’s recommendations and instructions related to taking the medication (i.e., the child is responsible for going to the office at the prescribed times). Medication must be in its original container and brought to school by the parent/guardian, or an adult designee. All controlled medication will be counted and recorded on a medication log when delivered to school.

All medication must be picked up by a parent/guardian or adult designee at the end of the school year. NO medication will be given to a student to take home. Medication left in the school office at the end of the school year will be discarded.

Please refer to district policy 5532 for further questions or Program Advisory On Medication Administration by California Department of Education at
