School District Of Westfield
Bylaws & Policies


It is the purpose of this policy to provide an alternative to out-of-school suspension. The availability of in-school discipline options is dependent upon the financial ability of the Board of Education to support such a program.

In-school discipline will only be offered at the discretion of the principal/Dean of Students for offenses found in the Student Code of Conduct.

No student is to be detained after the close of the regular school day unless the student's parent has been contacted and informed that the student will be detained. No student shall be refused transportation services until the parent has been notified and other suitable transportation arrangements have been made. Notification to the parent is the responsibility of District personnel and should be made prior to the departure of school buses. If a parent cannot be contacted, the child should be detained on another day.
