Discipline for Special Education Students
The behavior of special education students shall be governed by the guidelines for conduct that are applicable to any other student. Any disciplinary action taken as a result of a special education student’s violation of the student conduct regulations, however, must be in accordance with state law, federal law and local practice/procedure and must be determined by the student’s Individual Education Plan or Behavior Intervention Plan.
Nothing in this section of the Code of Conduct shall be construed to infringe on any right provided to students with Individualized Education Programs pursuant to the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act, 20 U.S.C. § 1400 et seq., Section 504 of the federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973, 29 U.S.C. § 794, or the federal Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990, 42 U.S.C. § 12101 et seq.
