Consistent with education code (sec 35291.5 and sec.48900), rules for student discipline are developed at each school site. In developing these rules, each school solicits the participation of parents, teachers, administrators, school security personnel and at the junior high level, the students themselves. These rules are revised as necessary and undergo site-level review at least every four years. Disciplinary strategies provided by board policy, regulation and applicable law include but are not limited to referral of the student for advice and counseling, conferences with parents or guardians, recess restriction, detention during and after school, community service, reassignment to an alternative educational setting, removal from the class and in extreme cases, suspension or expulsion from school. For additional information contact your child’s school.


The Board of Education of the Hueneme Elementary School District recognizes that the district has the primary responsibility for ensuring that it complies with applicable state and federal laws and regulations governing educational programs. Furthermore, the board acknowledges and respects students’ and employees’ rights to privacy. The district superintendent ensures that there are employees designated to investigate concerns and complaints and these employees are knowledgeable about the laws and programs for which they are responsible. In addition, the board recognizes that a neutral mediator can often suggest an early solution that is acceptable to all parties involved in an issue or concern. Therefore, the board has approved a multi-step problem resolution process which begins at the lowest possible level. Typically, the lowest possible level is the classroom or the school site.
