• Readmission

    This section does not apply to students who have been expelled for so-called "mandatory expulsion" offenses under Section 1311 of the Michigan Revised School Code (M.C.L.A. 380.1311; MSA 15.41311(5)). Reinstatement for such students shall be in accordance with Section 1311(5) of the Michigan Revised School Code, M.C.L.A. 380.1311(5); MSA 15.41311(5).

    A student who is expelled shall not be readmitted to any school within the District except by action of the Board.

    After an expelled student’s absence from school for the remainder of the semester during which the incident leading to the expulsion occurred and the one (1) regular school semester/trimester following, the student or, on behalf of the student, the student’s parent/guardian may seek readmission by applying to the Board through the Superintendent or designee. The Board may, in its discretion and subject to this policy, choose to readmit the student if s/he can satisfactorily demonstrate that s/he had made a sincere effort at rehabilitation subsequent to the expulsion, will not represent a threat to the safety and welfare of the students, and will not disrupt the educational process of the District. The Board shall base its decision in part on the severity of the incident leading to expulsion. The Board may further qualify readmission upon specified conditions that it determines are appropriate.

    Such applications shall be filed no earlier than forty-five (45) days prior to the commencement of the semester/trimester for which readmission is sought. The decision of the Board on the question of readmission is final.
