Under current Colorado law, a student may be suspended or expelled for the willful destruction or defacing of school property. Students who are suspended lose time in the classroom and often struggle academically. They are more likely to drop out of school. A Colorado student who causes material and substantial disruption 3 times during a single school year may be declared to be a habitually disruptive student.
A new Colorado bill seeks to change that: The goal of this policy is to limit the expulsions and suspensions of young students who are deemed habitually disruptive, and to incorporate restorative justice practices into the school policy for how to respond to disruptive or destructive incidents.
