Join Michigan Alliance for Families for Counting the Days: Understanding Disciplinary Removals of Students with Disabilities with Special Education Mediation Services.

Suspensions are part of all schools’ Code of Conduct consequences. Students with disabilities have additional protections under the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) that change the way suspension days should be counted. Join us in this session to get the answers to these questions and more. Learn what IDEA, case law and the MDE OSE have to say on this subject.

• What counts as a removal? Full day? 1 hour? Bus suspension?
• When does a removal equal a change in placement?
• When is an MDR needed?
• What is the difference between a pattern of removals and a pattern of behavior?
• How does remote learning impact student discipline?
