Suspension Due Process Procedures
Students and their guardian(s) have the right to request a hearing related to suspension from school or bus suspension. A hearing may be requested for one or any combination of the following reasons:
- The student and their guardian wish to contest the facts, which led to the disciplinary action.
- The student and their guardian wish to contest the appropriateness of the sanction imposed by the disciplinary authority.
- The student and their guardian allege prejudice or unfairness on the part of the School District Official responsible for the discipline.
Section 10-22-6 of the Illinois School Code states that the guardian(s) of a suspended student have a right of review of said suspension with an appointed hearing officer. Requests for review shall be made in writing within five (5) school days of suspension notice to the Office of the Superintendent, Lincolnshire-Prairie View School District 103, 1370 N. Riverwoods Road, Lincolnshire, Illinois 60069.
Re-Engagement of Returning Students
The building principal or designee shall meet with a student returning to school from an out-of-school suspension, expulsion, or alternative school setting. The goal of this meeting shall be to support the student’s ability to be successful in school following a period of exclusion and shall include an opportunity for students who have been suspended to complete or make up missed work for equivalent academic credit.
