DRTx Interactive Discipline Guide – NEW EDITION
This interactive program was developed by Disability Rights Texas to help parents and school districts correctly apply the requirements of IDEA when disciplining a student with a disability by taking the user step-by-step through the disciplinary process. It is based primarily on the requirements of the IDEA as reauthorized in 2004 and its regulations.
Read each question carefully before you select your answer. Your answer to each question determines what information will follow. Items or phrases that are underlined are links that, when clicked, take you to other sources of information about that topic that are displayed on the right side of your screen. You do not have to access these links to complete the program. If you do open any of the optional links, you just need to close that screen to return to the original program.
We hope you find this process a useful tool for understanding and applying a very complex set of requirements. Of course, it is not intended to and does not replace an attorney’s advice or assistance based on your particular situation. You can also contact Disability Rights Texas for additional information about the disciplinary process for students with disabilities.
