FREE EXPRESSION POLICY: California law permits school site administrators to establish reasonable parameters for those students who wish to exercise their free speech rights on campus or during the school day. School site administrators may impose restrictions on the times, place, and manner of those speech or activity in order to maintain a safe and peaceful campus for all students and employees. Students who fail to follow the directive of school site administrators or school police concerning demonstrations, assemblies, sit-ins or walkouts may be disciplined. Students who voluntarily leave the school campus or the classroom during a demonstration will be directed to return to the campus or classroom. A student's refusal to adhere to this directive may result in disciplinary action against the student. If the student demonstration or walk-out causes a disruption to the general public, then local law enforcement may respond to the situation. While GHC recognizes and respects a student's freedom of speech rights, employees shall not promote, endorse, or participate in any student demonstration, distribution of materials, assembly, sit-in or walk-out.
