Section 2 covers suspension and expulsion, including the legal differences between these two procedures, and outlines the relevant due process requirements. Section 3 concerns corporal punishment and provides relevant background information, research findings, and guidelines relating to due process and local regulations. The fourth section explores the critical elements of policy on student searches, noting the conditions under which different types of searches have been approved by the courts. The fifth and last section explains the special due process rights that must be accorded handicapped children when imposing disciplinary measures.
