This pamphlet for parents of children with disabilities discusses regulations under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act that relate to discipline procedures, including suspension or removal, manifestation determination, and interim alternative educational settings. Presented in a question-and-answer format, it specifically addresses: (1) questions that are considered during a manifestation determination to decide whether a behavior is a result of a disability; (2) the kind of discipline a school can use; (3) the definition of a short-term suspension; (4) the definition of a long-term suspension or expulsion; (5) discipline procedures if a child brings a weapon or drugs to school; (6) discipline procedures if the school believes a child is violent or dangerous; and (7) recourse for parents who disagree with a disciplinary action of a school.
