agreement. If the coordinator determines that a student who has submitted a participation agreement
has violated the terms of that agreement or district policies or procedures regarding A+ participation,
the coordinator will notify the student in writing and may put the student on probation or expel the
student from the program. The student or the student's parents/guardians may appeal expulsions
from this program, in accordance with written district procedures, to the Board of Education or to
a committee of Board members appointed by the president of the Board and given the authority to
act for the Board. The Board or the Board's committee will hear the student's appeal in closed
session and will notify the student of its decision.
