arrow Previous bar Next arrow

The Governing Board may admit students expelled from other districts upon request as long as their admission is consistent with providing a safe, secure and positive school environment for all district students and staff.

In order to prohibit the enrollment of a potentially dangerous student, the Board shall hold a hearing before admitting any student who has been expelled from another district. If the student has been expelled for certain serious reasons specified in Education Code 48915(a)or (c), his/her enrollment may occur only after the term of expulsion, and only if he/she has established legal residence in the district or is enrolled pursuant to an interdistrict attendance agreement.

Upon receiving a request for enrollment from a student expelled from another district for acts other than those specified in Education Code 48915 (a)or (c), the Board shall hold a hearing to determine whether the student poses a continuing danger to students or staff. The hearing shall be conducted and notice shall be provided in accordance with procedures governing expulsion of students described in Education Code 48918. (Education Code 48915.1)

(cf. 5144.1 - Suspension and Expulsion/Due Process)

Enrollment After the Term of the Expulsion

A student expelled for an act specified in Education Code 48915(a)or (c)may enroll in the district after the term of his/her expulsion if the Board finds, at a hearing, that the student does not pose a continuing danger to students or staff. The hearing shall be conducted and notice shall be provided in accordance with procedures governing expulsion of students described in Education Code 48918. (Education Code 48915.2)

A student expelled for any act other than those specified in Education Code 48915 (a) or (c) may request enrollment after the term of his/her expulsion in accordance with the district's procedures for establishing residency or interdistrict transfer.
