In my district the Student Handbook in section School Discipline; subheading Teacher Suspension From Class lists the reasons a teacher may suspend a student from class. One of the reasons states: 1)caused or attempted to cause physical injury to another student or adult. It also states: suspension does not mean reassignment to class, another class or activity. It further states: A teacher may suspend a student for the remainder of school day and day following. In other words, a teacher does need permission or consultation from the principal to suspend a student. And the principal may not send the student back to class without consent of the teacher. However, the principal is the only one who can suspend a student from school (off campus). Any teacher may still choose to send a student to the principal for disciplinary action. In this case the principal can send the student back to class. This addendum was added to the Student Handbook a couple years before I worked for the district in response to the case(s) you describe
