When a student gets into trouble at school, the school must follow the law. All districts must have a discipline policy. A student can be kept out of class for a class period, the day or many days. If the bad behavior continues, the student could be expelled. Ask your child’s school for a copy of their discipline policy. Know what legal rights your child has.

If your child has a disability or is getting special ed services, additional rules apply to the school. For more information call the Minnesota Disability Law Center at (612) 332-1441 or 1(800) 292-4150.
