State law requires districts to adopt plans or policies to support studentsâ€™ return to school following suspension or expulsion.
Colorado Revised Statutes 22-33-105. Suspension, expulsion, and denial of admission
(1) No child who has attained the age of six years and is under the age of twenty-one shall be suspended or expelled from or be denied admission to the public schools, except as provided by this article. (2) In addition to the powers provided in section 22-32-110, the board of education of each district may: ... (b) Except as provided in paragraph (c) of this subsection (3), a suspended pupil shall: ... (II) Not be readmitted to a public school until a meeting between the parent, guardian, or legal custodian and the suspending authority has taken place or until, in the discretion of the suspending authority, the parent, guardian, or legal custodian of the suspended pupil has substantially agreed to review the suspension with such suspending authority; except that, if the suspending authority cannot contact the parent, guardian, or legal custodian of such pupil or if such parent, guardian, or legal custodian repeatedly fails to appear for scheduled meetings, the suspending authority may readmit the pupil. The meeting shall address whether there is a need to develop a remedial discipline plan for the pupil in an effort to prevent further disciplinary action.
