Dalton Local Schools - Fan Code of Conduct Policy

Dalton Local Schools, in association with the Ohio High School Athletic Association, promotes interscholastic events and sportsmanship. Sportsmanship is an essential part of any athletic competition and is expected from athletes, coaches, officials, and fans. As a fan/spectator (student or adult) of Dalton Local Schools we want you to be an example of positive encouragement while supporting our athletes, coaches, and officials. Our behavior should be positive, respectful, and encouraging of the athletes, coaches, officials, and the game.

 

 Failure to be an example of these athletic practices and ejection from an athletic contest, whether at a home or away event, will result in the following procedures to be taken:

 

First Offense- The spectator will schedule a meeting with the athletic director to discuss the situation, review the expectations of Dalton Local Schools and to show cause why he/she should not be banned from athletic events. If the ejection is found to be just, the spectator may be banned from all Dalton Local School’s athletics events (Grades 7-12) for 1 week (7 days), regardless of the sport. If the ejection occurs during the last week of a season, the suspension may carry over to the playoffs or the first week of the next sport season (fall, winter, spring). A letter will be sent by the athletic director and principal to the spectator in question notifying them of the ejection and the dates they are prohibited to attend district athletic events.

 

Second Offense- The spectator will schedule a meeting with the athletic director and principal to discuss the situation, review the expectations of Dalton Local Schools and to show cause why he/she should not be banned from athletic events. If the ejection is found to be just, the spectator may be banned for remainder of all sports during that season. If the ejection occurs during the last game, the spectator may be suspended from all sporting events during the next Sport Season (Fall-Winter-Spring), regardless of the sport. A letter of ejection will be sent from the office of the Principal notifying the spectator of the ejection and the dates they are prohibited to attend district athletic events.

 

Third Offense- The spectator will schedule a meeting with the athletic director, principal, and superintendent to discuss the situation and review the expectations of Dalton Local Schools and to show cause why he/she should not be banned from athletic events. If the ejection is found to be just, the spectator may be banned for one calendar year, from the date of the 3rd offense. A letter of ejection will be sent from the office of the Superintendent notifying the spectator of the ejection and the dates they are prohibited to attend district athletic events.

 

Any athletic official, including but not limited to, contest officials, athletic director, principal, assistant principals, game site supervisors and anyone else in an administrative role on the site, may uphold enforcement of an ejection.

 

While the Fan Code of Conduct encompasses behavior expectations and consequences for both student and adult fans, Dalton Local School’s administrators may apply further consequences to a student ejected from a contest due to the student violating the Student Handbook.

Board Adopted – July 25, 2016
