CONSEQUENCES FOR INFRACTIONS OF THE CODE OF
Students who violate the MEHS
Code of Conduct will be disciplined consistently depending on the severity of
the infraction. At the same time, MEHS
believes in promoting student success.
Therefore, the school has instituted a progressive discipline plan that
consists of a point system that includes intervention meetings and regular
communication with parents/guardians that promote students’ successful
adjustment to boarding school life. The
proactive intervention steps are as follows:
When a student accumulates 10
discipline points, he/she is required to meet with the Home School
Coordinator. The purpose of this meeting
is to notify the student that he/she is in jeopardy of suspension or other
serious disciplinary action. Depending
on the severity of the discipline infractions(s), a student could be suspended
at this point or earlier. The Home
School Coordinator will call the parent and refer student to counselor.
When a student accumulates 20
discipline points, the student is required to appear before the residential
and/or academic principals for a disciplinary hearing that may result in
suspension depending on the seriousness of the action. The student’s
parent/guardian will be involved in the disciplinary hearing. Once again, staff will work with the student
and parents to develop a plan of action that promotes the students’ successful
adjustment to school life.
When a student accumulates 30 discipline points, the
student appears before the Residential and Academic Principals and may be
indefinitely suspended from school.
