The appeal is considered a review of the record and the process, not a new hearing. Therefore, the appeal officer will not conduct an in-person meeting. Appeals should be typed and submitted electronically. Specific instruction is provided on the outcome letter if a student is found responsible.
There are three grounds upon which a review of a decision of responsible may be made:
• If a student has a disagreement with the incident report itself, he/she may inform the hearing officers during the hearing.
• If a student has a disagreement with the notes taken during the hearing, he/she may speak with the OJA staff. If the OJA hearing officer chooses not to change the notes, students are permitted to make a written addendum and have this information added to the file.
