    Parent communication is important throughout the suspension process.  Where can you find the electronic template for the parent notification of suspension letter?

    • A.

      OSYD

    • B.

      OORS

    • C.

      SOHO

    • D.

      ALC

    Correct Answer
    C. SOHO
    Explanation
    Answer C is correct. The required letters for parent communication are generated in the Suspensions and Office of Hearings Online (SOHO). For Principal’s Suspensions, schools are required to send these letters to parents and for Superintendent’s Suspensions, the Hearing Office will send the letter (schools will still be required to send the 24 hour notice of suspension). For Teacher Removals, a written notification is not required unless an MDR is triggered. OSYD stands for the Office of Safety and Youth Development (Answer A). OORS stands for the Online Occurrence Reporting System which is the system of record for tracking school incidents (Answer B). ALC stands for the Alternate Learning Centers which are the school sites students attend while serving Superintendent’s Suspensions longer than 10 days (Answer D).

    Rate this question:

  • 5. 

    For a Principal’s Suspension the Principal must meet with the parent before suspending the student. 

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    False. The Principal can either meet with the parent while considering the suspension, or he/she may suspend immediately and arrange the meeting following the beginning of the suspension (but must be within five days of the suspension) if the student’s presence in the school poses a continuing danger to persons or property or an ongoing threat of disruption to the academic process. In either case, the Principal must meet with the parent (this responsibility cannot be delegated to another staff member) and follow the procedures outlined in Chancellor’s Regulation A-443 when imposing a Principal’s Suspension.

    Rate this question:

  • 6. 

    When is the ONLY time a student must be removed to an ALC before the suspension hearing?

    • A.

      When a Group One Infraction occurs

    • B.

      When a Group Two Infraction occurs

    • C.

      When a Group Three Infraction occurs

    • D.

      A student can only be removed from the school pending the outcome of the conference/hearing.

    Correct Answer
    C. When a Group Three Infraction occurs
    Explanation
    Group Three (Answer C) contains all Level 5 infractions. For these infractions, students must be removed prior to the hearing. Group One (Answer A) contains all Level 3 and some Level 4 infractions and schools may request immediate reassignment if the Principal believe the student poses a continuing danger to persons or property or an ongoing threat of disruption to the academic process at the school. Group Two Infractions (Answer B) contain some Level 4 infractions and the student will be immediately reassigned unless the Principal believe that the student does not pose a continuing danger to persons or property or an ongoing threat of disruption to the academic process at the school.

    Rate this question:

  • 7. 

    Fill in the blanks: The burden of proof is on the _______ to prove the charge(s), not on the _______ to prove innocence.

    • A.

      Student; Suspending school

    • B.

      Suspending school; Student

    • C.

      ALC; Suspending school

    • D.

      Suspending school; Borough Suspension Director

    Correct Answer
    B. Suspending school; Student
    Explanation
    Answer B is correct. During the suspension hearing, the school may bring witnesses, written statements, video evidence to prove the charges. The burden is on the suspending school to prove the charges, not on the student to prove he/she is innocent. Answer A reverses the burden of proof and is therefore incorrect. Neither the ALC (Answer C) nor the Borough Suspension Director (Answer D) are responsible for putting on a case during the suspension hearing.

    Rate this question:

  • 8. 

    Check each correct answer.  The purpose of a Manifestation Determination Review is:

    • A.

      To determine if the conduct in question was caused by, or had a direct and substantial relationship to, the child’s disability.

    • B.

      To determine if the conduct in question was the direct result of the school district’s failure to implement the child’s IEP.

    • C.

      To immediately remove the child from the school.

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. To determine if the conduct in question was caused by, or had a direct and substantial relationship to, the child’s disability.
    B. To determine if the conduct in question was the direct result of the school district’s failure to implement the child’s IEP.
    Explanation
    The correct choices are A and B. The purpose of an MDR to determine if the conduct in question was caused by, or had a direct and substantial relationship to, the child’s disability (Answer A) and/or if the conduct in question was the direct result of the school district’s failure to implement the child’s IEP (Answer B). Immediate removal (Answer C) is not a purpose of an MDR.

    A ___________ pattern of removals is when a student is removed/ suspended for more than 10 cumulative school days in a 40 school day period as the result of at least three removals or suspensions of 10 days or less. 

    Correct Answer(s)
    presumptive, 11/40
    Explanation
    A presumptive (or 11 in 40) pattern is when a student is removed/ suspended for more than 10 cumulative school days in a 40 school day period as the result of at least three removals or suspensions of 10 days or less.

    A non-presumptive pattern is when a student is removed/ suspended as the result of two or more disciplinary actions in a school year resulting more than 10 cumulative school days or removal. In these cases, the school will be prompted to answer questions to determine whether a pattern of removals exists.

    Rate this question:

  • 10. 

    When is an MDR NOT required?

    • A.

      A student with an IEP or 504 Plan is suspended for more than 10 consecutive school days.

    • B.

      A student with an IEP or 504 Plan has been removed two or more times for greater than 10 cumulative days in a school year, and the school has determined that a pattern of removals does not exist.

    • C.

      A student with an IEP or 504 Plan has been removed two or more times for greater than 10 cumulative days in a school year, and there is a disciplinary change of placement.

    • D.

      A student with an IEP or 504 Plan has been removed three or more times for greater than 10 cumulative days in a forty day period.

    Correct Answer
    B. A student with an IEP or 504 Plan has been removed two or more times for greater than 10 cumulative days in a school year, and the school has determined that a pattern of removals does not exist.
    Explanation
    An MDR is not required for a student with an IEP or 504 Plan who has been removed two or more times for greater than 10 cumulative days in a school year and the school has determined that a pattern of removals does not exist (Answer B). If there were not similarities in the removals, an MDR does not need to be conducted. In situations where a student with an IEP or 504 Plan is suspended for more than 10 consecutive days (Answer A), an MDR is required. Additionally, an MDR is required when a student with an IEP or 504 Plan has been removed two or more times for greater than 10 cumulative days in a school year and the school determines that there was a pattern of removals (Answer C). This is considered a non-presumptive pattern because the school must actively answer questions about whether a pattern of removals exists. An MDR is also required for a student with an IEP or 504 Plan has been removed three or more times for greater than 10 cumulative days in a forty day period (Answer D) as this constitutes a presumptive pattern.
