The Newport-Mesa Unified School District board is poised to adopt an expanded policy for student conduct, including provisions to discipline students for hate crimes, threatening conduct and possession of firearms on campus. The proposal, which will be considered by the board tonight, includes a measure calling for the immediate suspension and probable expulsion of any student caught with a firearm. The proposal expands on the district's existing rules and regulations governing student conduct.

Although it's now legal to smoke weed in Colorado, you still can't secretly feed it to your classmates. Two University of Colorado Boulder students face multiple felony charges after the marijuana-laced brownies they brought to class put their professor in the hospital and sickened seven classmates, campus police said Sunday. November's voter-approved Amendment 64 made Colorado's marijuana laws some of the most relaxed in the nation, but Thomas Ricardo Cunningham, 21, and Mary Elizabeth Essa, 19, may not get much help from it. The pair have been arrested on suspicion of planning and intentionally committing second-degree assault and inducing consumption of controlled substances by fraudulent means.

A national search is under way for someone to fill the new job of Dean of Student Life at the University of California, Berkeley. Lynn Bailiff, executive officer of undergraduate affairs, said the role of the dean--something reminiscent of the protest-ridden 1960s--will be to supervise protests and enforce student conduct rules, but also will be to function more as a mediator and educator than as a police officer.

With rain soaking their clothing and fogging up their binoculars, 50 researchers and university students armed with butterfly nets and specimen bottles fanned out across Whitewater Canyon at daybreak Monday to take the first full accounting of wildlife in the oasis a few miles northwest of Palm Springs. The two-day "Whitewater Canyon Spring 2010 Bioblitz" aimed to survey 17 miles of the canyon framed by sandstone cliffs and watered by a year-round river roiling through overlapping biological zones including sandy desert, boulder fields, grasslands and forests.

Twenty-one students at Cal State San Bernardino are under investigation for allegedly falsifying their student records and could face expulsion from the university and have their academic work voided. Craig Henderson, coordinator of student conduct at the campus, said the matter "is unusual because of the number of students (involved) and because of the nature of the accusations," but he declined to elaborate.

A state Court of Appeal refused Tuesday to allow a female ex-student to sue the University of California over her alleged rape by four UC Berkeley football players after a co-ed dormitory party in 1986. The court rejected the former student's novel claim that the university was negligent for, among other things, housing females on the same floor as males--particularly football players, who her attorneys alleged were unusually prone to group sex crimes.

International students composed just 10% of the student population at USC but represented 46.7% of those accused of "academic dishonesty"--cheating--according to a report by the school's Office for Student Conduct. The report details the 152 complaints against students for violations including plagiarism, copying assignments and using surrogates for taking tests--which carried punishments ranging from warnings to expulsion.

All American colleges and universities should adopt and enforce codes of student conduct to deal with alcohol abuse, racism and crime, according to a report to be released today by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching. The report does not argue for revival of in loco parentis , the philosophy mainly abandoned in the 1960s that allowed colleges to have parental-like control over students' lives.

The 11 students who each briefly disrupted Israeli Ambassador Michael Oren's speech last week at UC Irvine have no 1st Amendment protection for their actions and deserve to be punished, writes my colleague, law school Dean Erwin Chemerinsky, in his Feb. 17 Times Op-Ed article. Reading Chemerinsky's piece, you'd think a group of hysterically angry Muslim men prevented Oren from speaking at all. But the situation, as a look at a video recording of the event makes clear, was much more complicated.

Re "Debate on Black Students Rages," Dec. 1: It is important to question how race figures into what are at best subjective interpretations of behavior. My brother's and my experience as African Americans attending Chicago schools with all-white faculties taught us that there are racial double standards in assessments of behavior and performance. At various levels, both of us were classified as slow and having behavioral problems, for behaviors and performance that were equivalent to those of other students.

Though criminal charges against 32 campus protesters were settled three months ago, UC Berkeley is set to proceed this week with hearings to determine if the pro-Palestinian students violated conduct codes by occupying a building and disrupting class. Members of Students for Justice in Palestine last April organized a rally on Holocaust Memorial Day at Sproul Plaza, the epicenter of much of the mid-1960s Free Speech Movement.

Playing hooky. Showing up late for class. Mouthing off to the teacher. Breaking the rules. Smoking in the boys' room--or the girls' room. All relatively minor disturbances, at least in comparison with the incidents of school violence that grab the headlines. But a new study from the Educational Testing Service finds that such misbehavior is on the rise in public schools nationally.

Teasing among friends and classmates is typical on any middle school campus. But if the chatter degenerates into name-calling or stereotyping, it can lead to serious problems in high school and beyond, say organizers of a conference today at UC Irvine. The third annual "Walk in My Shoes" symposium, hosted by the Orange County Human Relations Commission, will target an emotionally vulnerable age group, said Rusty Kennedy, executive director.

Kids are forever inventing new ways to torment each other, and adults are forever telling them to mind their manners. Some would say it's all part of growing up. Now many Orange County schools are challenging those purported facts of life, unwilling to accept meanness as a schoolyard staple. Instead, they are crafting unusual programs that give students the job of teaching other students how to get along.
