E. Students Who Are Repeatedly Substantially Disruptive or Substantially Interfere with the Teacher’s Authority Over the Classroom
Any student, other than a student with a disability, who engages in conduct which results in the student being removed from the classroom by the same teacher on four or more occasions during a school semester will be suspended from school for one day. Any student, other than a student with a disability, who engages in conduct which results in the student being removed from the classroom on 10 or more occasions in a school year, by the same teacher or multiple teachers will be suspended from school initially for three days. The principal has the authority to modify the three-day suspension on a case-by-case basis. If the principal wishes to seek a suspension of greater than five days, the principal will activate the superintendent’s hearing process with its required notice provisions. In addition, there may be an occasion when it will be appropriate to refer a disruptive student to a school counselor or psychologist who in turn may refer a student (and parent) to appropriate human services organizations outside the school.
