"I Disagree with the School’s Decision to Suspend my Child"

You or your child may disagree with the school’s decision to suspend.

Parents may disagree about whether the student has committed the infraction for which he or she is being punished. If your child did not do what the school is suspending your child for, why is the school suspending your child?

Sometimes parents and educators will disagree about what level of discipline is appropriate—about how serious the behaviour is, and how severe the punishment should be.

Parents and the school may also disagree about whether some sort of positive instruction would be a better solution in some situations than punishment.

In some situations, you may be able to resolve the disagreement by talking with the teachers and Principal of your child’s school.

If you disagree with the school’s decision to suspend your child from school, you have the right to appeal the decision.
