    printer friendly version

    Question: Lets say I did something really bad outside of school, can the school punish me for it?

    Answer: Generally the things that you do outside of school will be handled by the juvenile authority in your area. The school would not normally be involved if you were being tried and/or punished in by a juvenile court.

    However, schools sometimes do get involved if you represent a safety issue for the students in your school. For example, if you have been caught fighting or being a member of a gang outside of school, the school might say that you now are a threat to other students and that they need to take action to protect the other students. Schools are responsible for overseeing the safety of their students, so they will get involved whenever they see a potential issue of harm to those students.

    I was suspended after a hispanic gang attacked me and my friends after school at a location 5 miles away from school. Did the school have authority to suspend me when we were protecting ourselves.

    We dislike the fact that our high school gets involved with things that happen outside of school. For example about 2 months ago four students were caught at a party in a hotel room, they were punished by their parents and talked to by the police. The next monday when they came back to school there was a note sent around to most of the teachers explaining what had happend with the four students names on it. The school had no right to break into their privacy, and humiliate those kids like that, it was very disrespectful.

    if people in our school are caught drinking or doing illegal substances outside of school and a team coach finds out, he/she punishes him and the whole team by giving them more of a workout or kicking that player out of the next game, or not letting them go to the next school dance.
