Expulsion should be the last step taken after several attempts to deal with a student who has discipline problems. The Colorado Department of Education has funded school districts across the state to provide services to expelled students and students that are at risk of expulsion, under the Expelled and At-Risk Student Services Grant of Amendment Twenty-Three.
The Colorado Department of Education has two goals:
Goal One: Support students who are unable to avoid mandatory suspension or expulsion.
Goal Two: Develop strategies to help students who are at risk of suspension or expulsion.
- Example of district policy on grounds for suspensions and expulsions: Aurora Public School District
- Example of district policy to identify students who are at-risk of suspension or expulsion: Cherry Creek School District
- Example of district policy on truancy: St. Vrain School District
- Statutes Related to Graduation and Dropping Out
- Legal Responsibilities for Policy and Practice
