You have the right to ask a student to temporarily leave the classroom, laboratory or field trip is her/his behavior is significantly disrupting the learning environment or creating a safety hazard.
You CANNOT permanently remove a student from your class without taking the matter through the Student Judicial System. In extreme circumstances, the Dean of Students can impose an interim suspension to prohibit a student from attending class and/or coming on campus until a hearing is afforded that student. Students have clear rights of due process that are described in the Statement of Student Rights and the Student Code of Conduct. Potential Responses:
- Ask the student to leave class.
- Document situation.
- Dismiss class.
- Contact a nearby colleague to help you manage the situation.
- Contact Moscow Police Department (882-5551).
- Consult with Dean of Students about long-term resolution.
