Generally, a principal’s suspension is a one (1) to a five (5) day suspension issued by the principal to a student.

Once a principal has decided to suspend a student, they must provide a written notice to the student’s parent within twenty-four (24) hours of the suspension. This notice must contain the date and specific details of the conduct and notify the parent of the right to request a conference with the principal.

It is important to note that a phone call can not substitute the required written notice to the student’s parent.
