IL and the Law, Ethics & Diversity
A student who is receiving services under IDEA for attention deficit disorder and for emotional behavioral disorder was caught by school officials spray painting the side of the school after school hours. School officials wanted to suspend this student for two weeks. The student’s parents argued that his conduct was related to his disability and that he could not be suspended for more than ten days.
When must school officials engage in a manifestation determination?
How is it determined whether the disability is related to the conduct?
