If you are unable to attend, you can still register and we’ll send you a recording of the workshop which you can watch on your own time.
This workshop will examine the rights of students with disabilities as they relate to school discipline. The session will include an overview of students’ discipline rights and protections and answer questions like:
- Who can/can’t be suspended?
- What is an informal removal?
- When the school call to say they are sending my child home, what can I do?
- What is a Manifestation Determination Review and when is it required?
- When can the district change my child’s placement and what are my options?
