These guidelines describe areas of concern as indicated by recent litigation, questions received from local school districts, and complaints received from parents and students. They also present, as a frame of reference, the status of current school law where and as it applies to the area of students' rights and responsibilities. The document is divided into five major sections: (1) background information and the purpose and need for such a document, (2) aspects of current law and practices relative to student behavior, (3) specific student behavior in terms of rights and responsibilities, (4) suspension of students along with guidelines for procedural due process, and (5) summary of the document with requests for continual review and reevaluation.
