Model policy available to assist alignment with House Bill 410

8/7/2017

In June, the State Board of Education adopted a model policy for violent, disruptive or inappropriate behavior, including excessive absences. The model policy, which may be adopted in part or in full to meet the needs of each school district, stresses preventative strategies and alternatives to suspension or expulsion. Districts may use this policy when updating local policies to align with HB 410 requirements. The model policy can be found here. Send questions about the model policy or HB 410 requirements to school_improvement@education.ohio.gov.
