School Discipline

In the wake of numerous incidents of school violence in the U.S. many schools and districts have adopted zero-tolerance policies.  If you’re looking for information on these or other school discipline laws, regulations, and policies, the Colorado General Assembly has studied the issue and has published some resources you may find helpful.  These include the reports of the 2011 Interim Committee to Study School Discipline.  This web link goes to the Committee’s home page, which includes the reports as well as memorandums and presentations about the issue.  Be sure to talk to your principal or local school district to find out more about your child’s school discipline policies.
