Will Expelled Students Go To Class With Your Child?

When a student is expelled from school for a serious offense, it is a good bet he or she will not be allowed to transfer to your child's school.

On the heels of a twelve-year-old reportedly bringing a loaded to an area middle school, a district could very well reject a student with a similar stain on his or her record to ensure the same thing does not happen in one of its schools.

When an expelled student tries to enroll in another district, so does his or her discipline record.

It is up to the district to do one of three things, says Canyon I.S.D.'s Lauri Cizon:

"keep a student in expulsion for duration of the time he was expelled, place in discipline alternative education program for disciplinary purposes or return to the regular classroom."

Often the district will choose number one, to make sure students are not threatened.

Amarillo I.S.D. Tascosa Cluster Director Stan Chatman says, "very rarely will you find a district that accepts a kid who brought a firearm to school."

"We want to provide the very best in screening of any situation for our students," says Cizon.

Which is why if a serious enough crime is committed, it leaves the student with few options.

Private schools in the area range on acceptance policies of expelled students, from a flat-out "no" to granting a student an interview.

In addition to the state policy, individual districts can add on to that if they want to get specific on the kind of student they will accept.
