School-wide Policy against Hazing: Cleveland High School strives to maintain a healthy learning environment and athletic program in which all students fell safe and welcome and can be proud of the school and programs they represent. Hazing in any form, including degrading forms of initiation, is strictly forbidden by California Sate Law. According to the law, no student shall conspire to engage in hazing or commit any act that causes or is likely to cause bodily danger or physical harm to a fellow student or any other person. Hazing of any kind, even verbal or psychological, is not allowed on this campus or in the athletic program, and students violating this policy will be subject to District discipline, misdemeanor penalties and the forfeiture of entitlements. It is the duty of the student to report any acts of hazing to a school administrator or coach.
