Safe Schools Act Training for Principals

San Antonio AllianceUncategorized

Whether  due to error or confusion or some other cause, many administrators  responsible for enforcing teachers’ discretionary authority to remove  disruptive students fail to follow the law. HB 1952 by Rep. Senfronia  Thompson (D-Houston) would help to correct that problem by requiring  principals and other administrators charged with enforcing the law to  undergo Safe Schools Act training, with specific emphasis on the  distinction between routine disciplinary referrals to the principal and  formal discretionary removals of disruptive students from the classroom  by their teachers. We are pleased to report that HB 1952 received final  passage in the Texas Senate this morning and is on its way to the  governor.
