No person shall be admitted to any school under the jurisdiction of the Board of Education without meeting the requirements for admission. No person seeking admission into any Chicago Public School who has been suspended or expelled for any reason from any public school in Illinois or any other state may be admitted without first completing the entire term of the suspension or expulsion, except on a case by case review by the Chief Education Officer or designee. Students who have been suspended or expelled from a private school, charter school or public school outside District 299 may not be allowed to enroll in a Chicago Public School if they were suspended or expelled for an offense for which expulsion is a possible sanction according to the Chicago Public Schools Student Code of Conduct.
