The Act requires superior courts in the state to give notice to the local school system when a student who is seventeen or older commits a felony. The superior court is also charged with providing written notice to the local school system if a juvenile commits a criminal offense that is in the exclusive jurisdiction of the superior court. The Act also provides that teachers of students who commit criminal offenses be informed, and the administrator of the school is charged with reporting any criminal act by the student. The Act authorizes a statewide expulsion or suspension of the student if the student has committed a felony. The Act provides for alternative placement of such students. The Act does not hold educators criminally liable for an act or omission pertaining to the reporting of offenses.
