Answer: 

This answer is taken from I Am Being Expelled From School - What Are My Rights?, produced by Justice for Children and Youth.

Being expelled means that you are not allowed to go to your school or to participate in any of your school's activities, and you may have to attend an expelled students program. Your principal will suspend you first, then investigate, and then make a recommendation on whether you should be expelled or not. If you are expelled, it will last a minimum of 21 school days.
