For Texas students and faculty, the Texas Education Law disciplinary process is daunting. In most situations, the school district, college or university will open an inquiry or investigation. Subsequent to the completion of the investigation, the Texas school district, college or university will propose a settlement, or proceed to a formal disciplinary action. Formal disciplinary actions can often result in probation, suspension or expulsion from the educational institution. In most Texas Education Law disciplinary matters, the student or faculty member will have the right to a Hearing before a Hearing Officer or Hearing Panel.
