Utilizing the IEP: Florida's Answer to the Exclusion of Behaviorally Disordered Students.
Guetzloe, Eleanor; Wells, Diana
The paper review Florida's use of the individualized education program (IEP) in addressing discipline issues with behaviorally disordered students. The impact of court rulings on school discipline policies and procedures are examined. IEP components and development are reviewed, and inclusion of disciplinary procedures in the IEP is considered. Implications of the IEP-based approach are examined for service delivery options and least restrictive environments. Issues of suspension and expulsion in Florida are dealt with separately, and an example of Project PASS (Positive Alternatives to School Suspension) is offered to illustrate an efficient, cost-effective approach. A list of resource manuals designed to help Florida districts identify and address issues in suspension and expulsion concludes the paper. (CL)
