For the most part, school discipline law is a matter of local and state level regulation. In North Carolina, as in most states, the state statutes set out the broad principles of public school discipline, and the local boards of education are authorized to develop their own policies. The state statutes, as well as all local district policies, must, of course, comport with the United States Constitution and the state Constitution. In addition, to obtain federal educational dollars, local school districts must abide by federal legislation that affects school discipline.
