Is the campus allowed to question my student without me present?

Posted by:

Administrators, teachers, and other professional personnel may question a student regarding the student's own conduct or the conduct of other students. In the context of school discipline, students have no claim to the right not to incriminate themselves. 

Students are expected to provide any information about their conduct or that of other students. Administrators are not required to contact parents/guardians prior to interviewing students.

Parents/Guardians will be contacted and informed of the available information regarding their child at the discretion of the administrator conducting the investingation. The intentino is to conduct an efficient and effective investigation and to avoid causing parents/guardians undue alarm and anxiety based on incomplete information.
