REMOVAL OF STUDENT DURING THE DAY Policy Code: 4352
The principal is authorized to impose out-of-school short-term suspensions in accordance with board policy.
The principal may remove from school grounds a student who has been suspended during the school day, under any of the following circumstances:
- the parent has been notified and is able to make arrangements for the student to leave the school or agrees to the student’s using public transportation or driving himself or herself home;
- the parent has been notified and is available to receive the student, and the principal is able to arrange for transportation from the school to the home; or
- the principal involves law enforcement in the removal of the student from school grounds because such action is necessary to provide a safe, orderly school environment.
If none of these circumstances exists, the suspension will begin on the next school day.
