The Board of Trustees considers vandalism a very serious matter. Vandalism includes the negligent, willful, or unlawful damaging or theft of any District-owned real or personal property, including the writing of graffiti.

(cf. 3515.4 - Recovery for Property Loss or Damage)

Any District student who commits an act of vandalism shall be subject to disciplinary action by the District and also may be prosecuted through other legal means. If reparation of damages is not made, the District also may withhold the student's grades, diploma and/or transcripts in accordance with law.

(cf. 5125.2 - Withholding Grades, Diploma or Transcripts)
