Show in My Time Zone


Join Michigan Alliance for Families for “Disciplinary Removals of Students with Disabilities​-Counting the Days” 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.

• What counts as a removal? Full day? 1 hour? Bus suspension?

• When does a removal equal a change in placement?

• When is a Manifestation Determination Review (MDR) needed?

• What is the difference between a pattern of removals and a pattern of behavior?

Who should attend?
