1. Pre Referral Process

   •   All Northern Adelaide Sites will action a Pre referral process prior to
       submitting a formal referral application.

   • The business of Exclusions is the responsibility of all Northern Area
      Site Leaders.
   • Placement alternatives for an excluded student/child are discussed
      at the Exclusion meeting.
   • A Regional ISBN is expected to attend all exclusion meetings for
      students under the age of 16 years.
   • If an alternate school/site placement is required, the site leader
      negotiates the placement. The site leader will contact up to 3 sites
      within 5 school days of the exclusion being formalised, to try and
      facilitate a placement.
   • If no placement has been found, the site leader contacts the
      regional Services Manager, and they will then assume responsibility
      for allocating a placement. The Regional Exclusion Data base will
      be used as a resource to ensure fairness of allocation. The local
      school context will also be a consideration in the allocation process.

      grievance about the process.

       The Regional services Manager will then oversee the enrolment
       allocation process.
   •   The RD/ARD will allocate to a site a placement of a GOM student if
       the regional Services Manager is unable to successfully negotiate
       an enrolment with 3 site leaders.
