48915.1.  (a) If the governing board of a school district receives a
request from an individual who has been expelled from another school
district for an act other than those described in subdivision (a) or
(c) of Section 48915, for enrollment in a school maintained by the
school district, the board shall hold a hearing to determine whether
that individual poses a continuing danger either to the pupils or
employees of the school district. The hearing and notice shall be
conducted in accordance with the rules and regulations governing
procedures for the expulsion of pupils as described in Section 48918.
A school district may request information from another school
district regarding a recommendation for expulsion or the expulsion of
an applicant for enrollment. The school district receiving the
request shall respond to the request with all deliberate speed but
shall respond no later than five working days from the date of the
receipt of the request.
   (b) If a pupil has been expelled from his or her previous school
for an act other than those listed in subdivision (a) or (c) of
Section 48915, the parent, guardian, or pupil, if the pupil is
emancipated or otherwise legally of age, shall, upon enrollment,
inform the receiving school district of his or her status with the
previous school district. If this information is not provided to the
school district and the school district later determines the pupil
was expelled from the previous school, the lack of compliance shall
be recorded and discussed in the hearing required pursuant to
subdivision (a).
   (c) The governing board of a school district may make a
determination to deny enrollment to an individual who has been
expelled from another school district for an act other than those
described in subdivision (a) or (c) of Section 48915, for the
remainder of the expulsion period after a determination has been
made, pursuant to a hearing, that the individual poses a potential
danger to either the pupils or employees of the school district.
   (d) The governing board of a school district, when making its
determination whether to enroll an individual who has been expelled
from another school district for these acts, may consider the
following options:
   (1) Deny enrollment.
   (2) Permit enrollment.
   (3) Permit conditional enrollment in a regular school program or
another educational program.
   (e) Notwithstanding any other provision of law, the governing
board of a school district, after a determination has been made,
pursuant to a hearing, that an individual expelled from another
school district for an act other than those described in subdivision
(a) or (c) of Section 48915 does not pose a danger to either the
pupils or employees of the school district, shall permit the
individual to enroll in a school in the school district during the
term of the expulsion, provided that he or she, subsequent to the
expulsion, either has established legal residence in the school
district, pursuant to Section 48200, or has enrolled in the school
pursuant to an interdistrict agreement executed between the affected
school districts pursuant to Chapter 5 (commencing with Section
46600).
