Parents often overlook IHSS as “nothing to worry about” as the child gets to stay at school and it does not impact anyone’s schedules. But, these “little” suspensions later need to be mentioned as a form of suspension on various college applications, depending on the college one may attend.
3) Right to have an IHSS imposed only when “other means of correction” fail to bring about proper conduct. However, IHSS would not be allowed if the student presents an “imminent danger or threat to the campus, pupils, or staff,” or if an expulsion is being pursued, California Education Code §§48900.5; 48911.1(a).
6) Right to ask teachers for work, and the teachers to provide work. If there is no work from the teachers- other work will be assigned, California Education Code §48911.1 (c)(4).
8) If the IHSS was assigned by a teacher, the parents should be contacted by the teacher to set up a conference about the suspension, California Education Code §48910(a).
9) Right to appeal the IHSS if for a first time offense, and other means of correction were not applied (within certain parameters- not all are appealable on the first time), California Education Code §48900.5.
