Disciplining Students with Disabilities: Rules for Students with IEPs and Section 504 Plans
As administrators know all too well, student discipline is both critical and complicated. Each situation demands a thoughtful, individual review, and consequences must be designed to not simply punish students, but also prevent recurrence. The school's conduct code must be applied consistently, but with attention and sensitivity to the particular child and event.
These challenges multiply exponentially when a special education student is involved, either as a victim or perpetrator. Both teachers and administrators are often frustrated, concluding that the law bars them from disciplining students with IEPs and Section 504 plans. Some educators are altogether unaware of the relevant statutes and others are confused about the steps to take in disciplining a student with special needs.
Please join Joanne Butler as she explains in clear and easy-to-understand terms the process of disciplining students with disabilities, and what to do when you can't.
