Part 3 - General Classroom Considerations

Responding to Disruptive Behavior

All De Anza students, including students with disabilities, are expected to follow the Student Code of Conduct. The presence of a disability is never an excuse for disruption even if the behavior is caused by the disability. The disruption must then be defined as a disciplinary issue and handled accordingly.

Most students with disabilities, including those with psychological disabilities, do not draw attention to themselves by behaving disruptively. Rarely do students become threatening. If the student is registered with the DSPS Division, it may be helpful to contact their DSS Counselor or LD Specialist.

If disruptive behavior becomes an issue with any student in class, faculty members need to follow the guidelines in the resources listed below.
