Review Article 17 of the Negotiated Agreement FY 16 CCPS EACC FINAL for more information.
COMAR 13A.08.01.11 (formerly SB 221, Student Discipline Bill) requires administrators to conference with a teacher prior to returning a child to class when the child has been excluded for disruptive behavior. In the law, “confer means a discussion or dialogue by any means in which the views of the teacher are communicated and considered.” The teacher cannot refuse to readmit the child if his/her input is not followed.
Ask your EACC Building Rep for a “green sticker” which states the following:
Per Maryland law, I request a conference with an Administrator before this student is returned to my classroom.
Thank you. ___________________
This sticker can be placed on the referral. You can also handwrite a request for a conference on the referral. See Article II for more contract language regarding maintenance of classroom control & discipline.
Contact your school’s UniServ or the EACC Administrative Assistant for more information.
