In School Suspension

  • What is ISS?

    In-school suspension or (ISS) is an in-house program to which a student may be assigned for a short period of time in lieu of out of school suspension (OSS).

    It is designed to counteract many of the negative effects of suspension. Instructional time can continue in the regular education classroom without interruption and special academic skills practice will be provided as a major component of the program.

    ISS overcomes the major shortcoming of traditional suspension because it does not deprive students of an educational experience because it is an environment that gives students opportunities to practice language arts, mathematics, science, social studies and connections class skills that they would normally receive in a traditional classroom setting.
