(1) Participate in disciplinary proceedings either in writing or in person;
(2) Provide a statement concerning the impact of the incident on the victim; and
(3) Have the outcome explained to the victim and to his or her parents or guardian by a school official, consistent with confidentiality.
(b) For the purposes of this part, the victim is the actual victim, not his or her parents or guardians.
