arrow Previous bar Next arrow

Whenever a teacher requires a parent/guardian to attend a portion of a school day with his/her child for the child's commission of an act specified in Education Code 48900(i) or (k), the principal shall send the parent/guardian a written notice that the parent/guardian's attendance is required pursuant to law. (Education Code 48900.1)

(cf. 5144 - Discipline)

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

(cf. 5144.2 - Suspension and Expulsion/Due Process (Students with Disabilities))

(cf. 5145.6 - Parental Notifications)

The notice shall:

1. Inform the parent/guardian of the date that his/her presence is expected, the length of the visit, and by what means he/she may arrange an alternate date

2. Direct the parent/guardian to meet with the principal or designee after the visit and before leaving school

3. Direct the parent/guardian to contact the school if there are reasonable factors that would prevent him/her from complying with the attendance requirement

Attendance of the parent/guardian shall be limited to the class from which the student was removed. (Education Code 48900.1)

A parent/guardian who has received a written notice shall attend class as specified in the notice. After completing the classroom visit and before leaving school premises, the parent/guardian also shall meet with the principal or designee. (Education Code 48900.1)

At the meeting with the student's parent/guardian, the principal or designee shall explain the district's and school's discipline policies, including the disciplinary strategies that may be used to achieve proper student conduct.

When a parent/guardian does not respond to the request to attend school, the principal or designee shall contact him/her by any method that maintains the confidentiality of the student's records.
