Expulsions in Pennsylvania
Resource Type: Fact Sheets
Focus Area: Stopping the School to Prison Pipeline
A fact sheet providing information for parents and guardians on the rules and procedures for student expulsions from school district and charter schools.
While public schools have wide latitude to create rules, they must follow their own rules. Thus, a school can only expel a student for a violation of a school rule if the school has officially adopted and distributed the rule. School rules should be listed in a published Code of Student Conduct that should be given to all students and parents.
