Under the current law, a student can be suspended for up to an entire year. A year without school will hinder a student's development and make it far more likely that he or she will engage in some sort of inappropriate activity. This can also be very taxing for parents who work and cannot supervise their children for such an extended period of time.
HB1600: Reduces the maximum length of a long-term suspension from 364 calendar days to 45 school days.
