Expulsion Appeal Process

Following expulsion, the district's Placement and Appeal Office will provide the student's parent or guardian with contact information for the San Diego County Office of Education. This office handles expulsion appeals from all 42 school districts in the county.


A parent or guardian must file a formal appeal there within thirty days from the date the expulsion was ordered by the Board of Education. A board decision to suspend an expulsion order does not affect the requirements for filing an appeal.

Additional information about the appeal process is available in the Expulsion Handbook provided by the San Diego County Office of Education.
