5.) Violation of the RSU #74 drug and alcohol policy.
6.) Disobedience or disorderly conduct.
7.) Continued use of profanity or obscene language.

In the event that any of the above conduct is repeated by a student or is felt to be sufficiently serious to so warrant, the student may be recommended to the RSU #74 Board of Directors for expulsion or additional suspension in excess of ten (10) days.
A student may be suspended for actions taking place off school grounds or during non-school time, provided that the activity in question affects the safety and well-being of the school or members of the school community.
