Before You're Expelled:
When you commit an expellable offense and you can't be emergency suspended your school must hold a suspension hearing. The idea is that they will suspend you from school pending the expulsion hearing. At the suspension hearing, you can be suspended for up to three days if you are younger than 15 years old and up to five days if you are 15 years old or older. The school may also want to assign you to the Counselling and Intervention Center, in addition to the suspension. While you're in the Counselling and Intervention Center you must be allowed to make up assignments and earn credits while you are away (including homework, exams, quizzes papers, or projects you missed
You will be marked “constructively present” while you are on suspension or at the CIC. That means it isn’t an unexcused absence. If you have an IEP and you're sent to the CIC twice the Office of Special Education will look into your case
School staff has to do TWO things before they can expel you:
Tell you and your parent/guardian in writing that they need to meet to discuss possible expulsion and the date, time, and place of the hearing. This has to be in writing (in English and the language spoken in your home). It must completely describe your alleged offense, all your procedural rights, and (if you request it) a state of the facts and evidence in you
Hold a hearing where you meeting with school staff, probably a principal or vice principal. At this hearing, you will have a chance to explain your side of the story. The school has to try to get in touch with your parent/guardian at least twice. If your parent/guardian wants to attend but can’t make the scheduled the time, or can’t be reached, the hearing needs to be delayed for up to 48 hours.
You have a right to STAY IN SCHOOL until the school gives you notice and holds the hearing or until the school places you under an emergency suspension.
