    Ok most of you know that the SD cannot "suspend" longer than 10 days... ots known as the "red line" or Honig rule.

    * Honig held that students could not be suspended for more than 10 days....

    Well it gets confusing.

    The 10 days is cumulative and can include:

    * in house suspensions
    * bus suspensions
    * etc.

    So what to do:

    "Fix it once Fix it Write"


    Dear Superintendent So & So,

    My difficult child was suspended this week for two days, I am writing to you to request clarification of this suspension.

    This two days combined with the 3 days in house is a total of 5 days leaving only 5 left under the Honig rule.

    Please confirm to me in writing that this is what your records reflect.

    This way you are never blind sided, and it opens up dialogue with Supt and "discipliners" about what they are doing.

    Hugs N Love!!!
