Behavior and Discipline Policy
The DRC behavior and discipline policy is based on mutual respect among staff, students, parents and patrons. The purpose of this discipline policy is to ensure a safe and orderly environment through well-defined policies and procedures that support a consistent and positive environment. Students and patrons have the responsibility to respect other students, staff and Center patrons, to comply with DRC rules and policies, and to be ready to accept the consequences of their actions if they violate these rules and policies.
Authorized DRC staff may suspend students or patrons for any of the following:
1. Willful violation of any DRC rule or policy.
2. Conduct or actions which disrupt, impede or interfere with DRC operations.
3. Conduct which endangers the safety, infringes upon or invades the rights of others.
4. Disobedience of an order given by a DRC official.
***This list is not intended to be all-inclusive.***
All individuals involved in any altercation will immediately be suspended for a period of five business days.
Administration will review the occurrence in its entirety during this period and determine the appropriate length of suspension for all individuals involved. Administrative discretion may be used in assigning any disciplinary consequences for behavior.
Violations may result in short-term or long term suspensions. If a person is suspended from the Derby Recreation Commission, that applies to all Derby Recreation Commission Facilities and Programs, including sports leagues and classes facilitated outside of DRC facilities.
When a person is suspended from the facility, he/she is not to return to any DRC facility or program until the suspension period is over. He/she may not be present on DRC property or off-site programs during the time of the suspension. Violation of this policy may be considered criminal trespassing and will be handled by the Derby Police Department or Sedgwick County Sheriffs Office.
