Quick Facts

 

Placement Change and Discipline

School authorities can change a placement of a child to an interim alternative educational setting (AES) when the child:
 

  1. Has been suspended for less than 10 days as it is applicable to regular education students.
     
  2. Is found possessing or using drugs at school or a school controlled function (45 days).
     
  3. Is found in possession of a weapon, or carries a weapon to school or school function (45 days).
     

Hearing officers may order a change in placement for a child to an AES when a child is determined to be dangerous.
