96.27. The principal may suspend a student if, in the principal’s opinion, such a disciplinary sanction is necessary to put an end to acts of bullying or violence or to compel the student to comply with the school’s rules of conduct.
When determining the duration of the suspension, the principal shall take into account the student’s best interest, the severity of the incidents, and any previously taken measures.
The principal shall inform the student’s parents of the reasons for the suspension and of the assistance, remedial and reintegration measures imposed on the student.
The principal shall also inform the student’s parents that, in the event of any further act of bullying or violence, on a request by the principal to the school service centre’s board of directors under section 242, the student could be enrolled in another school or expelled from the schools of the school service centre.
The principal shall inform the director general of the school service centre of the decision to suspend the student.
