A Rogers attorney vows to keep a one-day school suspension off the records of a 5-year-old boy, who garnered the punishment for using a profanity in school.
AT A GLANCE
In the Rogers School District, the principal or assistant principal of any school may suspend any student from the school, for good cause, for no longer than 10 school days.
According to district policy, within three days, written notice of any suspension must be hand-delivered to the parent or guardian or mailed to the student’s address. Parents may appeal suspension decisions to the principal, then the assistant superintendent and the superintendent before appealing to the school board. Appeals must be filed in writing within five days of the previous decision.
