1163. Transfer of suspension or expulsion to other schools

(a) If a student transfers from one Vermont school to another, a Vermont public or independent school, following application by the student and a review of whether or not the school can provide the student with appropriate services, may choose to continue a suspension or expulsion imposed by the other Vermont public or independent school.

(b) During a period of suspension or expulsion imposed under section 1162 of this title, a student, or parent or guardian, shall not be subject to the provisions of subchapter 3 of this chapter regarding compulsory attendance at school unless the conditions of the suspension or expulsion include participation in a program in the school or an alternative program outside the school. Further, nothing in this section shall prohibit a suspended or expelled student from applying to a different Vermont public or independent school during the period of suspension or expulsion and attending if accepted.

(c) A school district which provides for the education of a suspended or expelled student by paying tuition to an approved public or independent school may, at the discretion of the school board, provide for the education of the student during the period of suspension or expulsion by paying tuition to another approved public or independent school.
