This policy shall not apply to a student with a disability, as identified under state eligibility criteria, who is convicted or adjudicated guilty as a result of an action related to the student’s disability.

Students denied enrollment because of conviction of one of the acts set out in this regulation or due to an existing suspension or expulsion from another school district will be advised of the reasons for denial of enrollment and will be given an opportunity to respond to those reasons.

Suspension or Expulsion from Other Schools

Prior to enrollment, a student who is under suspension or expulsion from any other in-state or out-of-state public or private school and who is seeking admission will be evaluated by the Superintendent or Superintendent’s designee.  However, upon request, the Superintendent/designee will confer with the pupil, parent/guardian or person acting as parent of a special education student to consider imposition of the other school’s suspension or expulsion.  If the Superintendent/

designee determines that such conduct would have resulted in a suspension or expulsion had the conduct been committed in District schools, the suspension or expulsion will be implemented.
