On August 6, 2012, Governor Patrick signed into law “An Act Relative to Student Access to Educational Services and Exclusion From School” as Chapter 222 of the Acts of 2012. This law will dramatically affect the responsibilities of school departments in regard to students whom they suspend or expel. The Governor expects the bill to curb what the proponents allege has been an overuse of school suspensions and expulsions. The law becomes effective as of July 1, 2014.
