3201 Disciplinary Appeal Council

It is the policy of the Seattle School Board that volunteers may be appointed by the School Board to serve on a disciplinary appeal council that will hear student discipline appeals from initial hearing officer decisions.  A quorum of the council for purposes of considering and deciding appeals shall be three members drawn in each case from a panel of approximately 15 volunteers appointed for one-to three-year terms by the School Board.  Such volunteers shall be approximately one-third principals, one-third community members (including School Board members), and one-third teachers, and their minority/majority and program or service distribution shall approximate that of the District’s student population.  The Seattle School Board may appoint three alternate volunteers in the event a volunteer resigns from his or her appointment.
