It is the purpose of this policy to provide an alternative to out-of-school suspension. The availability of in-school
discipline options is dependent upon the financial ability of the Board of Education to support such a program.
In-school discipline will only be offered at the discretion of the principal for offenses found in the Student Code of
At elementary and middle schools no student is to be detained after the close of the regular school day unless the
student's parent has been contacted and informed that the student will be detained. No student shall be refused
transportation services until the parent has been notified and other suitable transportation arrangements have been
made. Notification to the parent is the responsibility of District personnel and should be made prior to the departure
of school buses. If a parent cannot be contacted, the child should be detained on another day.
The Superintendent is to establish administrative procedures for the proper operation of such programs and to
ensure that appropriate due-process procedures are followed as applicable.
