Disciplinary Actions / Penalties

The purpose of disciplinary action is to correct, not to punish, school related behavior. Each student is expected to maintain standards of performance and conduct as outlined by the school and to comply with applicable policies, procedures, and laws. When a student does not meet the expectations set by the school or other appropriate authority, counseling and/or disciplinary action may be taken to address the infraction or misbehavior.  

The school sanctions are seen as sequential. These are imposed to teach the students the meaning and ideals of justice, good morals, and right conduct. Penalties imposed shall be commensurate with the extent of the violation. However, a breach of Student Honor Code may involve implementation at any level and type of violation depending on severity. A PTC is required when deemed necessary by the school especially when the violations or infractions are persistent and become habitual.  

The school’s disciplinary policies and sanctions cover a student’s infractions and violations for the last two school years (the previous grade level and the present grade level).  

See DepEd Order No. 88 s. 2018 for more.
