Review the school board policy and student handbook of your local public school site or district for information regarding their policies on short- and long-term suspensions of students. You may also obtain this information by interviewing an administrator at your chosen site.
Based on the information that you gather, write a 500-750-word essay summarizing:
- The due process requirements prior to a short-term and a long-term suspension of a student at your local site or district.
- Are the due process procedures for a short-term and a long-term suspension of a student the same or different?
- Are these requirements consistent with Goss v. Lopez? Support your position with examples from case law, the U.S. Constitution, or other readings.
