ENFORCEMENT OF CODE OF CONDUCT

In order to assure that all parents, coaches, athletes and fans remain consistent with this code of conduct LCHSA has established the following policy of enforcement consistent with Matthew 18. To remain consistent with our statement of faith we will maintain a "three strike" policy of enforcement.

Infraction One: The coach and or any member(s) of the board will meet or notify the offending party, specify the concern and re-emphasize our code of conduct. If the violation is committed by a student athlete, the parents will also be notified of the infraction. We will discuss that continued violation of the code of conduct will result in discipline as stated herein.

Infraction Two: A member(s) of the board will meet or notify the offending party both orally and in writing of the second infraction and the concern behind it. If the violation is committed by a student athlete, the parents will be notified of the second infraction. Both oral and written communications will re-affirm the possibility of discipline up to and including removal from the LCHSA program.

Infraction Three: A minimum of two members of the board will schedule a person to person meeting with the offender (and guardians, if applicable). A letter following that meeting will be sent to establish the fact that a third infraction has occurred. The board will take appropriate disciplinary action that may include, but is not limited to, the offender’s removal from the LCHSA program.

 

Actions in Violation of the Code of Conduct: An action that is deemed inconsistent with the Code of Conduct may be brought to the board from any parent or student participating in the LCHSA program. The board will consider all grievances and holds the final determination of whether an action is inconsistent with the statement of Faith. An actionable violation will be determined at the sole discretion of the board. Action will be taken if a majority of the board has agreed with the action presented as a violation of the Code of Conduct.
