The principal is authorized to impose out-of-school suspensions from school in accordance with Wilkes County Board of Education policy.
The principal may remove a student from school grounds who has been suspended during the school day, under any of the following circumstances:
• the parent or guardian is notified and the parent or guardian is able to make arrangements for the student to leave the school or agrees to the student using public transportation or driving himself or herself home;
• the parent or guardian is notified and is available to receive the child and the school is able to provide transportation from the school to the home; or
• the principal involves law enforcement in the removal of the student from school grounds because removal is necessary to provide a safe, orderly school environment.
If none of these circumstances exist, the suspension will begin on the next school day.
