Because a non-disabled student has no entitlement or right to participate in extracurricular activities, minimal process is due. A student's procedural due process rights include the following:
- Being told what the allegations are and the identity of the witnesses who will testify at the hearing;
- Being given an opportunity to explain his/her side to a school administrator and then, if still not satisfied, being given an opportunity for a review before the board (if in the board's policy);
- Having a decision made by an impartial board;
- Having a decision that rests on "some evidence" (hearsay evidence is admissible and may be relied upon by the board if the board finds the evidence to be believable).
