    Bill Summary

    This bill requires each LEA to adopt a complete policy regarding a teacher's ability to remove a disruptive student from the classroom. The policy must:

    (1) Require a teacher to file a brief report with the principal detailing the behavior of the removed student;
    (2) Prohibit a principal from returning a student to the classroom where such student was removed on the day of the removal without the teacher's consent; and
    (3) Following three documented removals, the principal may not return a student to the classroom where such student was removed without the teacher's consent. If the principal or the principal's designee recommends returning a student to the classroom following the three removals and the teacher does not consent, the director of schools must review the record and determine the appropriate action.

    This bill authorizes each teacher, consistent with the LEA's policies, to manage the teacher's classroom, discipline students and refer a student to the principal to maintain discipline in the classroom. The principal must respond when a teacher refers a student by employing appropriate discipline management techniques that are consistent with LEA policy and the LEA student code of conduct.

    This bill requires principals to do the following:

    (1) Fully support the authority of every teacher in the principal's school to remove a student from the classroom under this bill; and
    (2) Implement the policies and procedures of the LEA relating to the authority of every teacher to remove a student from the classroom and disseminate such policies and procedures to the students, faculty, staff, and parents or guardian of students.

    ON MARCH 19, 2012, THE SENATE ADOPTED AMENDMENT #1 AND PASSED SENATE BILL 3122, AS AMENDED.

    AMENDMENT #1 makes this bill applicable to students in grades five through 12 only.
