72-6136. Suspension or revocation of driver's license or privilege upon certain school safety violations; procedure. (a) Whenever a pupil who has attained the age of 13 years has been found in possession of a weapon or illegal drug at school, upon school property or at a school-supervised activity or has engaged in an act or behavior, committed at school, upon school property, or at a school-supervised activity which resulted in, or was substantially likely to have resulted in, serious bodily injury to others, the chief administrative officer of the school shall make a report of the pupil's act to the appropriate law enforcement agency, provided that the report would not violate the terms of the memorandum of understanding approved by the superintendent of the school district pursuant to K.S.A. 2017 Supp. 72-6143(i), and amendments thereto. The report shall be given as soon as practicable, but not to exceed 10 days from the date of the pupil's act, excluding holidays and weekends, to the appropriate law enforcement agency. Upon receipt of the report, the law enforcement agency shall investigate the matter and give written notice to the division of the act committed by the pupil. The notice shall be given to the division of vehicles by the law enforcement agency as soon as practicable but not to exceed 10 days, excluding holidays and weekends, after receipt of the report and shall include the pupil's name, address, date of birth, driver's license number, if available, and a description of the act committed by the pupil. A copy of the notice also shall be given to the pupil and to the parent or guardian of the pupil.

(b) If timely notice is not given to the appropriate law enforcement agency or to the division as specified in subsection (a), the division of vehicles shall not suspend the pupil's driver's license or privilege to operate a motor vehicle on the streets and highways of this state.

(c) If timely notice is given to the appropriate law enforcement agency and the division as specified in subsection (a), the division of vehicles immediately shall suspend the pupil's driver's license or privilege to operate a motor vehicle on the streets and highways of this state. The duration of the suspension shall be for a period of one year. Upon expiration of the period of suspension, the pupil may apply to the division for return of the license. If the license has expired, the pupil may apply for a new license, which shall be issued promptly upon payment of the proper fee and satisfaction of other conditions established by law for obtaining a license unless another suspension or revocation of the pupil's privilege to operate a motor vehicle is in effect. If the pupil does not have a driver's license, the pupil's driving privileges shall be revoked. If timely notice is given to the appropriate law enforcement agency and the division as required by subsection (a), no Kansas driver's license shall be issued to a pupil whose driving privileges have been revoked pursuant to this subsection for a period of one year:

(1) Immediately following the date of receipt by the division of notification from a law enforcement agency containing the description of the pupil's act, if the pupil is eligible to apply for a driver's license; or

(2) after the date the pupil will be eligible to apply for a driver's license, if the pupil is not eligible to apply for a driver's license on the date of receipt of the notification.

(d) If the pupil's driver's license or driving privilege has been revoked, suspended or canceled for another cause, the suspension or revocation required by this section shall apply consecutively to the previous revocation, suspension or cancellation.

(e) Upon suspension or revocation of a pupil's driver's license or driving privilege to operate a motor vehicle as provided in this section, the division of vehicles shall immediately notify the pupil in writing. If the pupil makes a written request for hearing within 30 days after such notice of suspension or revocation, the division of vehicles shall afford the pupil an opportunity for a hearing as provided by K.S.A. 8-255, and amendments thereto. The scope of the hearing shall be limited to determination of whether or not: (1) Notice was given to the appropriate law enforcement agency and the division within the time specified in subsection (a); or (2) there are reasonable grounds to believe the pupil was in possession of a weapon or illegal drug at school, upon school property, or at a school-supervised activity or was engaged in behavior at school, upon school property, or at a school-supervised activity, which resulted in, or was substantially likely to have resulted in, serious bodily injury to others.

(f) For the purposes of this section, the term driver's license includes, in addition to any commercial driver's license and any class A, B, C or M driver's license, any restricted license issued under K.S.A. 8-237, and amendments thereto, any instruction permit issued under K.S.A. 8-239, and amendments thereto, and any farm permit issued under K.S.A. 8-296, and amendments thereto.
