N.Y. Senate OKs Transfer of Disruptive Students

ALBANY, N.Y. – The New York State Senate passed a bill March 7 that would allow disruptive students to be transferred to an alternative educational setting.

The legislation, if passed by the state Assembly, would allow a school principal, superintendent or school board to transfer a student who is violent or disruptive to a different school without parental permission. Currently, the school and student’s parents must agree to the change.

The new bill, however, would still allow the mother, father or guardian of the student being transferred to appeal the ruling before the decision becomes final.

The bill will go to the Assembly shortly and is expected by many in the legislature to pass easily.
