This thesis deals with the administrative procedures and court proceedings in Austrian school legislation according to the Austrian School Education Act (SchUG). The procedure has recently been altered through the Administrative Justice Reform Act of 2012 (Verwaltungsgerichtsbarkeits-Novelle 2012). The biggest change has been the introduction of the appeal against school decisions. However, some scholars question whether the appeal is in accordance with the Austrian Constitution. In general, schools can make different decisions. An appeal against such a decision can be submitted to the competent school authority, the Board of Education. If they do not agree with how their appeal has been treated, the students can bring in a complaint against the decision made by the school authority. The administrative court will then decide on the complaint. Against such a ruling by the administrative court, an appeal can finally be submitted to the Administrative Supreme Court or to the Constitutional Court.
