approved at C1SD ByMELANIEGERIK Staff Writer The Comal Independent School Dis trict board of trustees Thursday approved a new discipline manage ment plan reorganized to conform to Senate Bill 1 the restructured Texas Education Code Gov George W Bush signed the bill into law earlier this year Fernando Palos assistant principal at Smithson Valley High School said the changes were made to reflect the language of the law For example SVHS had in school suspension now it is called an alternative education program 1 cut the maximum length of suspension for students from six to three days and requires the students to attend an alternative education pro gram The whole purpose for the disci pline sections of 1 is to keep stu dents in school as much as said Carol Hall CISD assistant super intendent for curriculum and instruction said And thats our Palos said under former policy students could be expelled for the first time they were discovered having marijuana drugs or alcohol Now the students must be suspended and placed in the alternative education program according to 1 Second time offenders are expelled Palos said the state law will make the rules easier to enforce because a change in wording says that after a secondtime offense for drugs or alco hol the student shall be expelled instead of may Palos added that the change in the state law puts more bite into the dis tricts rules We can now say its not only school board policy its state Palos said Hall said that the law helps teachers regain control of the classroom because it allows them to remove students who consistently disrupt the class Students cannot return to the classroom from which they were removed without the approval of a threemember placement review committee This committee consists pf two of the schools teachers and a member of its professional staff Hall added that students who repeat edly break the code of conduct can be expelled The district sitebased management team which tries to find ways to improve the schools will loqk through the discipline handbook throughout the year to better conform to the new education code Palos said another state law House Bill 327 allows the school to issue a citation for truancy the first lime a stu dent skips school instead to wait at least four or five times Palos said that these and other cita tions which the students woi Id have to defend in justice of the pe ice court hit the parents in the pocket and it gets their Hillary Clinton hits the right chord in China speech See
