Student Discipline: Manifestation Determination INDIVIDUAL PROTECTIONS

For more information or to register for this training, visit: https://www.cahelp.org/

This course provides foundational information related to how the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA’s) discipline procedures apply to children not previously determined to be eligible for special education and related services and the legal requirements for how students with disabilities may be (or may not be) disciplined at school for violating a code of student conduct. The course will discuss the school system’s obligation to provide special education and related services during disciplinary removals. Further, the participants will examine the purpose and construct of a manifestation determination (MD) and determine if there is a relationship between the child’s disability and the behavior. Finally, the course will briefly discuss how both the LEA and the parent of the child with a disability have the right to request a due process hearing to appeal decisions taken during disciplinary procedures.

Intended Audience

Site administrators, school psychologists, district administrators, general education teachers, and special education teachers.
