Disciplinary Removal of Students with Disabilities

When removing students with disabilities from their regular school programs, whether as a result of a suspension, an expulsion, or any other removal covered by state and federal special education laws, it shall be the policy of the Yarmouth School Department to comply fully with all applicable state and federal special education laws that govern such removals.

The Superintendent, in consultation with the Director of Special Education and other school administrators, may develop and promulgate procedures for implementing this policy and may, from time to time, amend those procedures as necessary.
