  • Conditionally grant the appeal and allow the student to return to school with certain conditions (may include things like drug counseling/treatment, random backpack/pocket checks (with parent consent), and written reflection on the dangers of drug use and the potential  consequences for distribution);
  • Recommend the hearing and any action be delayed until the next regularly scheduled board meeting.
