Emergency expulsionsConditions and limitations.

A school district may immediately remove a student from the student's current school placement, subject to the following requirements:
(1) Sufficient cause. The school district must have sufficient cause to believe that the student's presence poses:
(a) An immediate and continuing danger to other students or school personnel; or
(b) An immediate and continuing threat of material and substantial disruption of the educational process.
(2) Determination of immediate and continuing threat of disruption. For purposes of this section, an immediate and continuing threat of material and substantial disruption of the educational process means:
(a) The student's behavior results in an extreme disruption of the educational process that creates a substantial barrier to learning for other students across the school day; and
(b) School personnel have exhausted reasonable attempts at administering other forms of discipline to support the student in meeting behavioral expectations.
(3) Time limit. An emergency expulsion may not exceed ten consecutive school days. An emergency expulsion must end or be converted to another form of discipline within ten school days from the start of the emergency expulsion.
(4) Conversion. If a school district converts an emergency expulsion to a suspension or expulsion, the district must:
(a) Apply any days that the student was emergency expelled before the conversion to the total length of the suspension or expulsion; and
(b) Provide the student and parents notice and due process under WAC 392-400-430 through 392-400-480.
(5) Reporting. All emergency expulsions, including the reason the student's presence poses an immediate and continuing danger to other students or school personnel, must be reported to the district superintendent or designee within twenty-four hours after the start of the emergency expulsion.
