5130 - WITHDRAWAL FROM SCHOOL
The Board of Education affirms that, while Michigan law requires attendance of each student until sixteen (16) years of age, it is in the best interests of both students and the community that they complete the educational program that will equip them with skills and increase their chances for a successful and fulfilling life beyond the schools.
The Board directs that whenever a student wishes to withdraw from school, efforts should be made to determine the underlying reason for such action, when and as appropriate, to assist the student in reaching his/her career goals. No nonemancipated student under the age of eighteen (18) will be permitted to withdraw without the written consent of a parent.
A student who seeks readmission after having withdrawn from school will not be readmitted until a meeting is held with student, parents, and administrators to determine appropriate educational placement and program. Such readmission must occur prior to the first day of the semester in which readmittance is sought.
