Any person, including adults, who behaves in an unsportsmanlike manner during an athletic or extracurricular event may be ejected from the event the person is attending and/or denied admission to school events for up to a year after a School Board hearing. Examples of unsportsmanlike conduct include:

- Fighting or otherwise striking or threatening another person;
- Failing to obey the instructions of a security officer or school district employee; and
- Engaging in any activity which is illegal or disruptive.
The Superintendent may seek to deny future admission to any person by delivering or mailing a notice, sent by certified mail with return receipt requested, at least 10 days before the School Board hearing date, containing:
- The date, time, and place of a Board hearing;
- a description of the unsportsmanlike conduct;
- the proposed time period that admission to school events will be denied;
