Students With Disabilities: How to Legally Discipline

February 22

Gain a better understanding of practical concepts and legal issues surrounding student discipline.

Disabled students who are classified under IDEA or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act are frequently the subject of student disciplinary proceedings in public school districts. It is imperative that public school district officers and employees understand the obligations imposed by these statutes and how to fulfill these obligations. This topic will help the person responsible for overseeing and/or training individuals relative to the discipline of disabled students understand the obligations imposed by IDEA and Section 504 concerning the discipline of disabled students and how to fulfill those obligations. It will also provide an opportunity for discussion of common problems in this regard and practical solutions. The school district's failure to adhere to the requirements of IDEA and Section 504 concerning student discipline is a common pitfall for school districts and such a failure can result in significant problems for school districts, including potential liability for attorney's fees, adverse decisions from administrative hearing officers, potential administrative enforcement action, and, in some cases, liability for money damages.
