State law requires districts to adopt plans or policies to support studentsâ€™ return to school following suspension or expulsion.
Utah Code 53G-8-206. Delegation of authority to suspend or expel a student -- Procedure for suspension -- Readmission.
(b) Except as otherwise provided in Subsection (5)(c), a suspended student may not be readmitted to a public school until:
- (i) the student and the parent have met with a designated school official to review the suspension and agreed upon a plan to avoid recurrence of the problem; or
- (ii) in the discretion of the principal or chief administrative officer of a charter school, the parent of the suspended student and the student have agreed to participate in such a meeting.
(c) A suspension may not extend beyond 10 school days unless the student and the student's parent have been given a reasonable opportunity to meet with a designated school official and respond to the allegations and proposed disciplinary action.
