TCTA members can get an updated version of this valuable  resource from the TCTA Legal Department: the "Removing Disruptive Students from Class" guide, available for download here.

TCTA compiled this outline of key provisions of Chapter 37 of the Texas Education Code as a resource for TCTA members and updated it to reflect changes made by Senate Bill 107 during the 2015 legislative session. This document does not constitute legal advice. Members can contact the Legal Department at 888-879-8282 to discuss with an attorney the law, their individual circumstances and their options.

More information about student removal and expulsion from the classroom is available in TCTA's Survival Guide.
