On January 22, 1974, the South Dakota State Board of Education, after a year's study and deliberation, adopted a resolution defining the nimimal standards for procedural due process guaranteed a public school student when he is suspended or expelled from school. Under the resolution the due process procedure adopted by each school district must consist of no less than the following minimum standards: (1) adequate notice of the charges; (2) reasonable opportunity to prepare for and meet the charges, (3) an orderly hearing adapted to the nature and circumstances of the situation, and (4) a fair and impartial decision. The report describes the historical and constitutional foundations of the concept of due process and provides guidelines for applying the concept. (Author/JF)
