Do I have rights if I am suspended, expelled, or placed on an involuntary transfer?
YES. Under the California Constitution students have the right to an education.i That means that your school cannot take your education away from you without giving you due process, or in other words, following rules that protect your rights.
Please note this handout only covers general education discipline. If you are a special education student, meaning you have an individualized education plan (IEP) or 504 Plan, you have even more legal rights.
