ACLU of Northern CA

SB 744 would keep school districts from forcing some students to be transferred to non-mainstream schools against their will, which has a disparate impact on students of color. In particular, it would make sure that most students who have won an expulsion proceeding can't be involuntarily transferred to a different, less desirable school.

SB 744 would also put due process safeguards in place for students and create ways for students sent to these schools to transfer back to mainstream schools.

The ACLU of California is a sponsor of SB 744, along with other organizations.
