Recommended Student Transfer Because of Parent/Guardian Attitude or Behavior
Under normal circumstances, a student should not be deprived of a Catholic education because of the attitudes or behavior of parents/guardians; however, uncooperative or disruptive parents/guardians might so diminish the effectiveness of the educational process that it may be impossible for the student to continue in the school. Before a student is asked to withdraw because of the attitudes or behavior of parents/guardians, the person in charge shall meet with the parents/guardians to notify them of the inappropriate attitudes or behavior and provide them with the opportunity for change.Before the parents/guardians are asked to withdraw their child(ren), the person in charge shall first obtain the approval of the pastor (in the case of parish schools) and the Department of Catholic Schools. The regulations governing recommended transfer would then be applicable. See Transfer of Records.The parent/student handbook should include a statement concerning parent/guardian attitude and behavior and their consequences.
