The bill allows a state-funded, community-based preschool
program, school district, or charter school (enrolling entity) to impose an
out-of-school suspension or expel a student enrolled in preschool,
kindergarten, or first or second grade only under specified circumstances.
If the enrolling entity imposes an out-of-school suspension, the length of

the suspension must be limited to the time required to resolve the safety
threat, but no more than 3 school days. The state board of education (state
board) cannot waive the provisions concerning suspension and expulsion
of young students for school districts or charter schools. Each school
district and charter school must ensure that its school discipline code
reflects the requirements specified in the bill. The state board must
annually review the data concerning suspensions and expulsions of
students in preschool, kindergarten, and first and second grade.
