Discipline

The Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Virginia regulations have outlined procedures which must be followed when disciplining a child found eligible for special education services. Section 504 discipline procedures are not as specifically defined. However, Virginia has chosen to adopt the guidelines for students receiving services under an IEP for students with 504 Plans. There is one distinct difference that is important to note in the guided questions relating to long term suspension and manifestation determination reviews. Follow the guided questions to learn more about discipline and special education, or return to the home page to explore other topics.

Does your child’s behavior impede the learning of self or others?
