Pre-Kindergarten thorugh Grade 2


Aggressive behavior in young children is often a result of a child's unskillful attempt to communicate what they want, need and/or don't like.  When a child engages in a violent act that threatens or harms other children or makes the learning environment feel unsafe, special procedures need to be in place to ensure that any children involved immediate attention.

The Schenectady City School District is committed to reducing and significantly limiting expulsion and suspension practices, with the goal of eliminating these practices in all early childhood settings.

if a student in grades pre-k through 2 engages in pervasive or serious aggressive acts that cause injury or threaten children's safety in the classroom, the principal can determine the most appropriate interventions and request an out of school suspension.

Any suspension of a student in grades pre-k through 2 requires the permission of the superintendent, assistant to the superintendent, or district director of pupil personnel services.  The principal must immediately provide written notification to the superintendent's designee upon suspension.  In addition, an intervention plan should be developed and parents invited to be directly involved in its development.
