48917. (a) The governing board, upon voting to expel a pupil, may
suspend the enforcement of the expulsion order for a period of not
more than one calendar year and may, as a condition of the suspension
of enforcement, assign the pupil to a school, class, or program that
is deemed appropriate for the rehabilitation of the pupil. The
rehabilitation program to which the pupil is assigned may provide for
the involvement of the pupil's parent or guardian in his or her
child's education in ways that are specified in the rehabilitation
program. A parent or guardian's refusal to participate in the
rehabilitation program shall not be considered in the governing board'
s determination as to whether the pupil has satisfactorily completed
the rehabilitation program.
(b) The governing board shall apply the criteria for suspending
the enforcement of the expulsion order equally to all pupils,
including individuals with exceptional needs as defined in Section
(c) During the period of the suspension of the expulsion order,
the pupil is deemed to be on probationary status.
(d) The governing board may revoke the suspension of an expulsion
order under this section if the pupil commits any of the acts
enumerated in Section 48900 or violates any of the district's rules
and regulations governing pupil conduct. When the governing board
revokes the suspension of an expulsion order, a pupil may be expelled
under the terms of the original expulsion order.
(e) Upon satisfactory completion of the rehabilitation assignment
of a pupil, the governing board shall reinstate the pupil in a school
of the district and may also order the expungement of any or all
records of the expulsion proceedings.
(f) A decision of the governing board to suspend an expulsion
order does not affect the time period and requirements for the filing
of an appeal of the expulsion order with the county board of
education required under Section 48919. Any appeal shall be filed
within 30 days of the original vote of the governing board.
