BookPolicy Manual Section5000 Students TitleIN-SCHOOL SUSPENSION Codepo5610.02 StatusActive AdoptedApril 21, 2009



It is the purpose of this policy to allow for an alternative to out-of-school suspension in response to student misconduct. The availability of an in-school suspension program is dependent upon the financial ability of the Board of Education to support such a program.


In-school suspension will only be offered at the discretion of the principal for offenses found in the Marion County Schools Student Code of Conduct.


The Superintendent is to establish administrative guidelines for the proper operation of an in-school suspension program. As long as the in-school suspension alternatives are served entirely within the school setting, they will not require any notice, hearing or appeal rights for the student and/or his/her parents/guardians.
