Parent FAQ

When you hear that your student has potentially violated the conduct code, you may have questions or concerns. While the conduct process should be taken seriously, it is also a learning opportunity. At Whatcom, we use our conduct procedures to educate students about the importance of community standards, about how their actions affect others, and about taking accountability for their choices. Sanctions are designed to be as educationally focused as possible with an emphasis on student growth and restorative justice. Our process is always implemented with a strong focus on the due process rights of WCC students and creating a safe and healthy teaching and learning environment.
