 Investigation (Program Participant)

Once the situation is discovered it must be brought to the attention of the Football Operations Director/Cheer Director.

·        If the charge is found to have no basis:

o   Concerned parties will be brought together to hear the result and settle any outstanding issue(s)

o   The issue will be considered settled with no further need to discuss.

·        If the charge is found to have merit and will require action:

o   The concerned parties will be brought together to hear the result. The guilty party will then be met with individually to hear final disposition.

o   Once the guilt has been established the final disposition steps will be as follows:

§  First Offense: Two weeks away from the respective program. On the Thursday before the return to the program the individual will review the charge and subsequent steps with the board so there will be no confusion as to the inevitability should this behavior continue.

§  Second Offense: Should an individual be found in violation of the behavior described in Discovery and investigation has concluded with due diligence, the individual will be removed from the program without prejudice.
