Private School vs. Public School

The rights students enjoy in public school are not the same as those in a private school. Private schools are covered by contract law. Basically, this means that private K-12 institutions have far more leeway to conduct investigations, withhold findings, and ask a student or faculty member to leave. How can you find out what your rights are at Central School? Start with the Parent Student/Handbook. The handbook spells out rules which govern your relationship with the school. You have signed or will sign a document that says you have read the Parent/Student Handbook, which is a legal contract, stating that you understand the rules which govern your relation with Central School. Failure to follow these rules may result in you being suspended or dismissed from school.
