The request for an informal conference may be made orally or in writing.
(2) Time limit. The principal or designee must hold the conference within three school business days after receiving the request, unless otherwise agreed to by the student and parents.

(b) Confer with the principal or designee and school personnel involved in the incident that led to the suspension or expulsion; and
(c) Discuss other forms of discipline that may be administered.
