A teacher may remove (suspend) from class a student who has been documented by the teacher to have repeatedly interfered with the teacher’s ability to communicate effectively with the students in the class.
Under Chapter 37 of the Texas Education Code, a teacher may remove a student from the classroom if the student’s behavior is so unruly, disruptive, or abusive as to seriously interfere with the ability of the student’s classmates to learn or with the ability of the teacher to teach.
Upon such removal, the principal may not require that the student be returned to the classroom without the teacher’s approval, unless the Placement Review Committee determines that such placement is the best or only alternative available.
The principal may place the student in another appropriate classroom, in-school suspension, or an alternative education setting. The review committee is composed of two teachers selected by the faculty and one member chosen by the principal from the professional staff
