There are two types of suspension - 1-5 day and 6-20 day.
The Principal can suspend a student with a proposal to exclude as per the grounds outlined from suspension, but the student's disobedience, misconduct or any other conduct must be so serious that suspension of the student is inadequate to deal with the behaviour.
Additionally, the principal can suspend with a proposal to exclude for the student 's contravention of a behaviour improvement condition.
The Principal will only recommend the exclusion to their supervisor if they determine it is inappropriate for them to make the exclusion decision.
The principal can cancel the enrolment of a post compulsory age student if the student displays persistent refusal to participate in the program of instruction.
A Behaviour Improvement Condition is an option to be used only when the student's behaviour warrants grounds for exclusion ie: if the student's disobedience, misconduct or other conduct is so serious that suspension of the student from the school or schools is inadequate to deal with the behaviour.
