Short-Term Suspension Centers

  • The CMS short-term out-of-school suspension centers are dedicated to students' intellectual, personal, social, and physical growth. Our teaching practices are reflective and responsive to the needs of our students. Through diversified experiences, the students we serve achieve readiness to return to their home school and succeed in a safe and caring environment.

    Parents/guardians of students who have received a referral for a level I, II, or III offense warranting an out-of-school suspension will be given the option to attend one of the short-term suspension sites. Students suspended for a period of one to ten days or given additional days by the Charlotte Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) Superintendent (or designee) may receive the option of attending a short-term site where they can complete their school assignments and receive credit for attending school. It is also designed to provide a structured, restorative, and individualized learning environment. Mecklenburg County Parks and Recreation provides seven (7) short-term sites at no cost to the district.  CMS employees will staff all sites (Teachers, TAs, and/or BMTs).

    Contact the Student Discipline and Behavior Support Department at 980-343-3768 for location information.
