: Intro > IEP/504/None > Discipline > Suspension and Expulsion

The Discipline is:

an out-of-school suspension* and an expulsion*.


School administrators must give you written notification of the disciplinary decision. In the case of a proposed expulsion, you are entitled to written notice that contains a complete statement of the facts, a list of witnesses and a description of their testimony, as well as many other procedural rights under the Minnesota Pupil Fair Dismissal Act.1
