The school district student discipline policies are to be developed through the commitment, cooperation, and involvement of the district's administrators, teachers, students, parents, and counselors. The policies are to describe the district's expectations of student conduct and specify the consequences of violating the rules. As the need arises, school officials may adopt additional policies containing student conduct rules.
Any school district failing to file the disciplinary policy required by Ark. Code Ann. §6-18-503 with the department shall have all state aid funds withheld until such disciplinary policy is filed with the department.
