Any of the listed reasons for expulsion with mitigating circumstances are adequate cause for suspending a student.

No student shall be suspended from school for more than two consecutive weeks, unless there is an ongoing police investigation of a possible crime, in which case the student may be suspended during the entire investigation.

The school must give a notice of the suspension to the parents/guardians verbally by phone, in writing (hard copy or electronic), or in person during a conference.

The principal shall schedule a conference with the suspended student's parents/guardians to discuss matters pertinent to the suspension, especially the means by which the parents/guardians and school can cooperatively encourage the student to improve his or her behavior. The suspended student may be present at the conference.

In no case will a teacher on his or her own authority suspend a student.
