If you have students in your class who you are concerned with and want to share your concerns or who are being disruptive, please feel free to call or email.

What can we do for you?

  • Consultation – If you have a question regarding student behavior that you view as disturbing, disruptive, or dysregulated, but the student is not an immediate threat to self or others, we recommend you either contact the Dean of Students Office at 623-935-8814 or you can call anyone of our counseling faculty by contacting the Counseling Office at 623-935-8909.  You can also email the Deans at:



  • Discipline Referral – If a student is exhibiting disruptive behavior in the classroom, even after you have confronted the behavior, you can refer the student to the Dean of Students.  Report the incident here: https://district.maricopa.edu/consumer-information/reporting.  Remember to provide as many details as possible and avoid diagnosing behavior or using inflammatory language to describe the situation.

When making a referral:

       I.   Discuss with the student this unacceptable behavior

      II.    Provide all students with the Student Code of Conduct

     III.   If the behavior persists, you may:

  • Remove the student from one class period
  • Require the student to meet with the Dean of Students.
  • Be sure to include your division chair in all matters that affect the classroom learning environment.

For more information, see the Academic Misconduct policy on our website at https://www.estrellamountain.edu/students/policies/rights-responsibilities
