Ipods/Cell Phones: Although Former Governor Gray Davis lifted the ban on possession of cell phones, the disruptive use of cell phones remains prohibited. No student may disrupt the educational environment of a school by using a cell phone for reasons other than the Ed. Code intended. Cell phones may be used in medical emergencies, or in the event of a clear and present threat to the safety of all students. Cell phones are subject to confiscation by staff if the use or misuse (including showing to friends, theft, loss, etc.) disrupts the classroom or campus in any way. Also, cell phones should not be visible and must remain turned off. Cell phones that are taken away from students will be returned only to the parent or guardian. On the second offense, the student will be subject to disciplinary action. If the use of a cell phone promotes violence on campus, disciplinary action will be taken immediately.


Students, who are unable to abide by school-wide expectation thereby interfering with the learning process and the orderly school environment, will receive one or more appropriate consequences. Examples include, but are not limited to, demerits, detention, referral to ACE (Alternate Classroom Experience), referral to a counselor or grade level administrator, parent conference, on-campus or home suspension, suspension to the Truancy Center, disciplinary transfer to another high school, or expulsion from the CUSD.

The following behaviors will result in suspension, alternative placement, and/or referral to the CUSD Guidance Committee for expulsion:

  • Physical injury to another person
  • Possession of firearms, knives, explosives, other dangerous objects or toys/replicas of these objects
  • Selling, possession, or use of drugs, alcohol, tobacco
  • Robbery or extortion
  • Damage to or theft of school property
  • Obscene acts or use of profanity
  • Sexual harassment


Fighting is not tolerated at Centennial. If you are having problems with another student, you are responsible for immediately notifying an adult staff member on campus. Students who fight will face the standard CUSD mandatory suspension from school. In addition, they will be subject to citation and/or arrest by the CPD. Students who are arrested must appear in court with their parents/guardians.
