The Discipline Committee is a student-faculty committee that hears cases concerning students suspected of violating, or found in violation of, the school’s major rules. The committee’s role is to listen to the evidence, ask questions concerning the evidence, deliberate, and make recommendations to the head of school. The Discipline Committee comprises two faculty members, the dean of students and community life, and three students who rotate from an elected group of ten students. Additionally, there are two faculty members and three house faculty members who rotate on the committee from September to June. The dean of students and community life serves as the nonvoting convener of the committee for the school year. The Discipline Committee 's recommendation must be approved by the head of school. The convener reviews disciplinary procedures with the committee at the beginning of each committee hearing.
