Penalty for Violation of Responsibilities
If users violate any PACE Career Academy part of this policy or engage in any other activity which school authorities deem inappropriate, they will be subject to disciplinary action consistent with due process procedures.
Upon the first violation during a given school year, the student’s computer privileges will be suspended for one week – even if the student is enrolled in a computer-intensive class. The student is responsible for making up any work that is missed due to the computer suspension.
A second offense during the same school year is cause for dismissal from the school since technology and its responsible use are core components of the educational program at PACE.
Parents will be notified of violations of this policy in writing, including any disciplinary action to be taken, requiring their acknowledgment.
Any violation of law will be reported to the appropriate authority.
