When a school seeks to discipline a student, there are certain rules and procedures they must follow. Often, parents are not aware of these rules, or of the rights their child has in the process.
For example, if a child faces significant discipline like a suspension, he or she has the right to due process. As a parent, you have a right to appeal the decision to the superintendent who will grant you an informal hearing.
In addition, if your child is classified for special education and related services, he/she is entitled to additional protections.
