What the Expert Says:

A good question.  Different schools and school districts will have different rules and regulations regarding suspensions and expulation in relation to behavioral IEPs.  We would encourage you to get in touch with your district and see if they can give you additional information about what their specific rules and regualtions may be.  If you are concerned about the legality of anything at your school and feel as though the school is not being forthright with you, than we would recommend that you consult a lawyer in your area who is familiar with the laws in your state.

Please take care and we wish you well!

In most cases school personnel are reluctant to suspend a child with an IEP. However if the disciplinary situation or behavior is of significant seriousness, suspension is legally allowable and appropriate.

If you have further questions you should make an appointment with the principal and talk this through with that person.
