Proposed amendments & updates to the Denton ISD Local Innovation Plan

  • Texas Education Code §37.105, applies to rejecting unruly guests from campuses and school events. In 2017, the Texas Legislature changed the law on how school administrators can eject unruly guests from school events. This applies to parents and community members, not students. Under the law, the guest must be given a warning before he or she is ejected. Upon ejection, the guest must also be given notice of how he can appeal the ejection. Denton ISD would allow designated staff members the authority to remove parents or visitors whose behavior is deemed inappropriate without warning or written notice.  Read the full education code.
