82ND LEGISLATURE
HISD
HB 1666 clarifies that someone commits an offense
of the Penal Code if that person poses as someone
else via social networking or any Internet site,
including posting or sending messages.
HB 359 adds a new requirement to law regarding the
use of corporal punishment in the discipline of
students. Board of Education policy prohibits corporal
punishment as a disciplinary method within the Houston
Independent School District. Certain physical acts against a
student by school personnel (such as choking, kicking, punching,
pinching, hitting with an object, etc.) are not authorized and will
be considered as a violation of the corporal-punishment policies
when used as a disciplinary measure.

82ND LEGISLATURE

coursework required for graduation and the available
methods for completing the required coursework at no
additional cost to the student. (Sample Letters)
HB 968 adds to the acts that require mandatory*
DAEP placement or optional expulsion the felony
offense of aggravated robbery that occurs off campus

Chapter 37: Four Things to Remember
HISD
1. Students have a right to an education, even if
they misbehave at school.
2. Parents/Students have a right to know the why &
the what & the consequences of their behavior(s)
and they have a right TO APPEAL.
3. Students have a legally protected right to DUE
PROCESS.
4. THE sending school is accountable for the student
even after removal – CAMPUS OF
ACCOUNTABILITY.

continued
Chapter 37 – Main Thing to Remember
HISD
CHAPTER 37 IS ABOUT EDUCATION AND
SCHOOL SAFETY – NOT ABOUT CRIME AND
PUNISHMENT.
*Any removal from the regular educational setting has
a negative impact on the student removed:
• At-risk for future academic/social failure
• At-risk of dropping out
• At-risk of future involvement with the judicial
system

Relates to Students’ Success and Juvenile Justice Involvement

Considerations In Decision to Remove
HISD
CHAPTER 37 - HB 171:
•Self-defense
•Intent or lack of intent at the time the
student engaged in the conduct
•The student’s disciplinary history
•The student’s age
•Any inability to understand consequences
•School safety
15
continued
After Considerations Are Reviewed
HISD
School administrator can choose to follow the
requirements of the Code and remove off
campus or can choose not to remove off
campus and only take on-campus disciplinary
actions or no action at all.
Mandatory disciplinary action NOT taken because
Code allows self defense, lack of intent,
student’s disciplinary history, or disability to
factor in decision. – PEIMS ACTION CODE 28
Offense and all other actions taken must be
posted on Chancery.
16
continued
PEIMS Action/Consequence Code 28
HISD
•The use of this code should be the exception and
should rarely be used. The date of this decision
should be in close proximity to the date of the offense.
(i.e., CROSSROADS)
•The use of ACTION code 28 is student-focused! And
should not be used because the staff failed to follow
through with a referral or were negligent in following
proper procedures.
•The use of ACTION code 28 must be well
documented and must relate to one or more of the
factors listed.
•PEIMS ACTION CODE 27 vs 28.
17
continued
Implications of The Law
HISD
•Do not focus on the misbehavior in isolation…

whole situation…
