School Discipline Policies (2016)

Education & School Finance (Pre & K-12)

This memorandum responds to your request for information on school discipline policies.  Specifically, you were contacted by a constituent expressing concern about several incidents at her granddaughter’s elementary school in School District 27J.  Please note that because Legislative Council Staff is unable to analyze whether there is a conflict between state law and the district's policies related to the circumstances the constituent describes, the memorandum provides background information on school discipline laws and regulations.

The effective date for bills enacted without a safety clause is August 7, 2024, if the General Assembly adjourns sine die on May 8, 2024, unless otherwise specified. Details
