2012 House Bill 5738: Repeal mandatory expulsion of violent students
  1. Introduced by Rep. Thomas Stallworth, III (D) on June 14, 2012, to repeal the law that requires public schools to expel a student who commits a physical assault against a school employee or other student. The bill changes the law to say “may expel” instead of “shall expel.” It also requires schools to undertake additional procedures before suspending or expelling a student “guilty of gross misdemeanor or persistent disobedience,” and requires county social service agencies to take specified actions with students who are expelled for bringing a gun to school.
    • Referred to the House Education Committee on June 14, 2012.
