Classroom Disruptions

Both instructors and students have a right to an educational environment, which is conducive to learning.

It is the responsibility of instructors to create and maintain this environment in individual classes. If individual students engage in behavior that is disruptive of this educational environment (i.e. Student Code of Conduct, violation of item #3), it may be necessary for them to be temporarily or permanently removed from the class following the formal procedures for dealing with disruptive behavior. Students who are removed from class have a right to due process procedures to ensure fair treatment in such circumstances. Conflict Management Services (CMS) staff may assist at any step in this process at either party’s request.


Teachers seeking more detailed information regarding these procedures may contact Conflict Management Services, (608) 246-6076. Conflict Management Services is a specific service offered by Madison College Counseling Services.
