As a teacher, you are responsible for the classroom behavior of your students. But you do not have to do this alone. The Texas Education Code gives you the right to remove a student to the principal when you need support to maintain classroom order.
The form below tracks the language in the Texas Education Code, and will trigger specific actions by the administration. If you check the box that you refuse to have the student returned to your class, the campus placement review committee may be convened.
