Abstract

Disciplining students with disabilities has been a controversial and hotly debated issue. The discussion has not been tempered by the introduction of the 1997 amendments to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA '97) provisions on discipline, since they are often confusing and provide only general guidelines for implementation. This article discusses issues related to implementing the IDEA '97 discipline provisions. It begins with a brief historical overview of litigation that led to the provisions and describes the provisions. The remainder of the article describes issues and considerations in conducting functional assessment, making a manifestation determination, generating interim placements, and deciding on the cessation of services.
