Developed to enable teachers, counselors, and administrators in local school districts to provide Mexican American parents and students with needed information regarding student rights and responsibilities, this Spanish translation for the state of Washington provides general information concerning state regulations which school districts and students are mandated to fulfill. The information, also provided in English, covers the rules and regulations regarding school attendance; use of motor vehicles; detainment of pupils after the regular hours for dismissal; adoption of written rules by school district board of directors; constitutional and citizenry rights of students; expulsion, suspension, and readmission provisions; pupil disciplinary boards; delegation of authority to suspend or expel; expulsion or suspension hearings; and procedures for appealing action regarding discipline, suspension or expulsion. A brief forward in English is followed by a more extensive preface in Spanish, which includes brief definitions of 21 terms and phrases used in the regulations. (CM)
