Chapter 37-Discipline Decisions

Discipline decisions are determined by the Student Code of Conduct. An ISD's student code of conduct is established by the trustees of the ISD. The trustees appoint a committee to advise them in the development process. See Chapter 37 Discipline Law and Order in the Texas Education Code for guidelines for establishing a student code of conduct.

PEIMS Data Standards from 2010-2011 provide further information on Discretionary or Mandatory Decisions (Appendix E: Additional Information Related to Discipline; MS-Word, open and scroll down).
