Hearing Procedures

For non-CCHB/SLC hearings, these procedures will apply:

  • At the beginning of the hearing, the Chair shall review the Student Rights and confirm that the accused student(s) are aware of them.
  • The hearing body shall use only facts and evidence relevant to the case at hand to make a decision of “Responsible” or “Not Responsible” for each charge. The standard for these decisions will be a preponderance of evidence (i.e. it is more likely than not that the alleged policy violation occurred).
  • If a student is found “Responsible,” the student’s previous disciplinary record will be provided to the hearing body prior to assignment of sanctions.
