AN ACT TO AMEND THE CODE OF LAWS OF SOUTH CAROLINA, 1976, BY ADDING SECTION 59-63-217 SO AS TO ALLOW A SCHOOL DISTRICT BOARD OF TRUSTEES TO CONSIDER NONSCHOOL RECORDS, THE PRIOR DISCIPLINARY RECORDS IN ANY SCHOOL IN WHICH A STUDENT WAS PREVIOUSLY ENROLLED AS THESE RECORDS RELATE TO VIOLATIONS OF CERTAIN OFFENSES TO DETERMINE IF THE STUDENT MEETS THE STANDARDS OF CONDUCT AND BEHAVIOR REQUIRED TO BE ENROLLED IN A SCHOOL IN THE DISTRICT, TO PROVIDE THAT BASED ON THE RECORD, THE BOARD MAY BAR THE STUDENT'S ENROLLMENT IN A DISTRICT SCHOOL FOR UP TO ONE YEAR, TO REQUIRE NOTICE, A HEARING, AND OTHER PROCEDURAL RIGHTS APPLICABLE TO EXPULSIONS FOR STUDENTS SUBJECT TO THE BAR ALLOWED BY THIS SECTION, AND TO PROVIDE THAT A STUDENT MAY REAPPLY FOR ENROLLMENT AFTER THE BAR IS LIFTED AND THE BOARD SHALL ORDER THE STUDENT ENROLLED IF HE IS OTHERWISE QUALIFIED.
Be it enacted by the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina:
SECTION 1. Article 3, Chapter 63, Title 59 of the 1976 Code is amended by adding:
"Section 59-63-217. (A) In determining whether or not a student meets the standards of conduct and behavior promulgated by the board of trustees as necessary for first time enrollment and attendance in a school in the district, the board shall consider non-school records, the student's disciplinary records in any school in which the student was previously enrolled as these records relate to the adjudication of delinquency in any jurisdiction, within or without this State, of violations or activities which constitute violent crimes under Section 16-1-60 or which involve the unlawful use or possession of weapons or the unlawful sale of drugs whether or not deemed to be drug trafficking. Based on this consideration of the student's record, the board may bar his enrollment in the schools of the district.
(B) If the board bars a student from enrolling pursuant to this section, notice must be provided to the student's parent or legal guardian and the student is entitled to a hearing and all other procedural rights afforded under state law to a student subject to expulsion.
(C) The bar to enrollment allowed by this section applies for a maximum of one year. After the bar is lifted, a student may reapply for enrollment and the board shall order the student enrolled if he otherwise meets enrollment criteria."
SECTION 2. This act takes effect upon approval by the Governor.
Approved the 1st day of July, 1992.
