Issuing Sanctions to Member Schools

The Board of Directors has the authority to issue the following sanctions to member schools and individuals.

PROBATION: The Board of Directors shall have power to place any member school on probation for violation of any of the rules of the Union or for other just cause.  Where the penalty is not fixed, the probationary period shall be left to the discretion of the Board of Directors.

Upon successful completion of an established probationary period, a school will automatically return to the status of a member in good standing.

Should a school wish to be removed from probation before the automatic reinstatement date, that school may be reinstated by the Board of Directors upon application made in writing to the Executive Director by the Administrator 20 days in advance of the time it desires to be reinstated. The Executive Director shall present the application of the school on probation to the Board of Directors for its consideration. The Administrator shall agree in writing that the school will abide by all the rules of the Union in the future. The Administrator shall sign the statement on behalf of the school.

Violation of any of the rules of the Union or other form of misconduct by a member school during that school’s probationary period may result in said school’s suspension.

Probation will allow a school to continue interscholastic competition, conditional to the school’s adherence to all rules of the Union.

SUSPENSION: The Board of Directors shall have power to suspend or otherwise penalize any member school for the violation of any of the rules of the Union or for other just cause. The period of suspension or other penalty shall be left to the discretion of the Board of Directors where the penalty is not fixed.

Any school under suspension, if it has restricted its athletic program to intramural athletics for the period of suspension may be reinstated by the Board of Directors upon application made in writing, 20 days in advance of the time it desires to be reinstated, to the Executive Director by the Administrator. The Executive Director shall present the application of the suspended school to the Board of Directors for its consideration. The Administrator shall agree in writing that the school will abide by all the rules of the Union in the future. The Administrator shall sign the statement on behalf of the school.

Suspension nullifies all existing contracts between the suspended school and other member schools
