School Discipline: Know Your Rights



If your child has been suspended or expelled, you should be aware of your rights. This  flyer outlines some of them. They include your right to receive written notice of a school's intention to suspend or expel your child, your child's right to have a lawyer at an expulsion hearing, your right to get copies of all documents that will be used at an expulsion hearing, and your right to appeal an expulsion decision.
