Appeals Case Update (October 2016 School Leader Update)
Here are two recent appeal decisions from the State Board of Education. In the first appeal, the State Board upheld the decision of the local board to suspend a student from participation in athletics for the remainder of his high school career. In the second appeal, the State Board reversed the decision of the local board and remanded it back to the district to follow the correct appeal procedures in a case involving bullying and harassment.
