Exceptions for protecting victims
The District may preclude a student from returning to the student’s regular educational setting following the end date of a suspension or expulsion to protect victims of certain offenses as follows:
A student committing an offense under RCW 28A.600.460(2), when the activity is directed toward the teacher, shall not be assigned to that teacher’s classroom for the duration of the student’s attendance at that school or any other school where the teacher is assigned;
A student who commits an offense under RCW 28A.600.460(3), when directed toward another student, may be removed from the classroom of the victim for the duration of the student's attendance at that school or any other school where the victim is enrolled.
The District will collaborate with the student and parents to develop a culturally sensitive and culturally responsive re- engagement plan tailored to the student’s individual circumstances to support the student in successfully returning to school. In developing a re-engagement plan, the District must consider:
The nature and circumstances of the incident that led to the student’s suspension or expulsion;
As appropriate, students’ cultural histories and contexts, family cultural norms and values, community resources and community and parent outreach;
Shortening the length of time the student is suspended or expelled;
Providing academic and nonacademic supports that aid in the student’s academic success and keep the student engaged and on track to graduate; and
Supporting the student’s parents, or school personnel in taking action to remedy the circumstances that resulted in the suspension or expulsion and preventing similar circumstances from
The District must document the re-engagement plan and provide a copy of the plan to the student and parents. The District must ensure both the re-engagement meeting and the re-engagement plan are in a language the student and parents understand.
Students who have been suspended or expelled may make a written request for readmission to the District at any time. If a student desires to be readmitted at the school from which they have been suspended/expelled, the student will submit a written application to the principal, who will recommend admission or non-admission. If a student wishes admission to another school, they will submit the written application to the Superintendent. The application will include:
The reasons the student wants to return and why the request should be considered;
Any evidence that supports the request; and
A supporting statement from the parent or others who may have assisted the student.
The Superintendent will advise the student and parent of the decision within seven (7) school days of the receipt of such application.
