Yikes-Ca ed code makes not just suspension, but expulsion mandatory if a student brings a weapon.

(a) Mandatory Recommendations, Permissive Expulsions: Except as provided in subdivisions (c) and (e) the
principal or the superintendent of schools shall recommend the expulsion of a pupil for any of the following acts
committed at school or at a school activity off school grounds, unless the principal or superintendent finds that
expulsion is inappropriate, due to the particular circumstance:
(1) Causing serious physical injury to another person, except in self defense.
(2) Possession of any knife, explosive, or other dangerous object of no reasonable use to the pupil.
(3) Unlawful possession of any controlled substance listed in Chapter 2 (commencing with Section 1053) of
Division 10 of the Health and Safety Code, except for the first offense for the possession of not more than one
avoirdupois ounce of marijuana, other than concentrated cannabis. (For second offense, any amount,
expulsion recommendation is mandatory. (AR 5131.6)
(4) Robbery or extortion.
(5) Assault or battery, as defined in Sections 240 and 242 of the Penal Code, upon any school employee.
That being said, we are seeing laws passed that eliminate willful defiance suspensions-at any grade. So they can act out and make learning impossible all they want but if they dont assault someone they are fine. I have talked to several middle school teachers in my area who have been threatened and had the student come up in their face and scream threats and nothing happens-not even more support for the students (who clearly need it). Also minor injuries are being ignored-only serious injuries are taken seriously so now when anyone is injured the union suggests they get medical care to document the injury and get a doctors opinion on its severity.
