Analysis by the Legislative Reference Bureau
Current law authorizes a teacher to remove from the classroom a pupil who is
dangerous, disruptive, or unruly or who interferes with the teacher's ability to teach
effectively. A pupil who is removed from the classroom must be sent to the school
principal, with a written explanation of the reasons for the removal.
This bill authorizes any school employee to remove a pupil from any portion of
school property or from a school-sponsored activity that is supervised by the
employee if the pupil is dangerous, disruptive, or unruly or interferes with the ability
of the employee to perform his or her job effectively. The school employee must escort
the pupil to the office of the school principal and provide an explanation of the
reasons for the removal.
