Students who participate in athletics or other co-curricular activities at CHS are expected to adhere to a high standard of behavior as outlined in the Code of Ethics. It is important for our athletes and co-curricular participants to realize that they represent the school and the community at all times. Our students act as role models for the younger students in our district and have a commitment to their teammates and coaches/advisors to be at their best physically and mentally at all times. Code is in effect 24/7/365 for students who represent CHS in a co-curricular activity.

- A Code of Conduct Board hearing will be held no sooner than the student's first day back to school from being suspended. The Board will determine if the student will be allowed to return to their athletic team or co-curricular activity and, if allowed to return, under what conditions.
Depending on the severity of the offense, the Board has the right to:
- Suspend the student from the athletic/participant competition/activity for one calendar year.
- Extend the length of the non-privilege period as they deem appropriate.
- Accept the student back on the team or group immediately after the non-privilege period.
- Assign the student to additional counseling, a rehabilitation program or academic support.
- Second Offense - will carry all the same potential penalties as a first offense and quite possibly result in recommendation for exclusion or continued suspension from participation.
CODE OF CONDUCT BOARD

- A Learning Director or designee.
- Parent of the student, student’s coach or advisor, or student’s counselor may attend the hearing.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN A PARTICIPANT QUITS OR IS REMOVED FROM THEIR CURRENT ACTIVITY?

- Coaches cannot release or accept an athlete/participant that has quit or been removed from that sport/activity without the approval of the Athletic Director. All appeals must go to the Athletic Director.
