Student Support Services » Suspension/Expulsion




When a student violates California Education Code Section 48900 or 48915: 

  • School meets with student and parent/guardians, unless a meeting is not feasible.
  • Students may be suspended for 1-5 days.
  • Students may return to school on a behavior contract signed by a school administrator, parent/guardian, and student.

If the Education Code Violation warrants further investigation or administrative review, or a recommendation for expulsion is mandated, a second meeting is scheduled with the Student Support Services Coordinator.


If students are recommended for expulsion, a Notice of Hearing providing the details of the hearing and the hearing process will be provided to the parent/guardian.
