Alternatives to School Disciplinary and Suspension Problems.
South Carolina State Dept. of Education, Columbia. Div. of Instruction.
Policies and procedures for disciplining students should be designed to teach them responsibility, rather than simply punish them. Providing educational opportunities to behavioral deviants is a problem that does not have a simple solution. However, alternatives to suspension or expulsion must be attempted before these disciplinary actions are taken. This document describes alternatives to suspension, as well as suggesting ways in which discipline problems may be reduced. The legal rights of students (including due process in suspension and expulsion cases) are described, and South Carolina's statutes governing student discipline are included. (Author/DS)
