15  10 days ONLY for the entire year  Manifestation Determination Packet Reviews  Invitation to Conference/Due Process Letter (signed and dated)  504 & Diabetic Support– Cindy Vines x343-3653  McKinney Vento Compliance – x343-6950 15

16  A removal of a child from school constitutes a change of placement if:  A. The removal is for more than 10 consecutive school days  B. The series of removals total more than 10 school days in a school year 16

17  Parents should be notified of a discipline meeting immediately through an “Invitation to Conference/Due Process letter”(DEC5a). This meeting needs to take place within 10 days to address a Manifestation Determination Review. A Functional Behavior Assessment and a Behavior Intervention Plan are developed ONLY if a manifestation is determined by the IEP Team. The DEC5a does not have to reflect 10 days notice.  The DEC 5a; “Prior Notice” needs to be sent to the parent the same day the incident happens.  If a student is 14-17 years of age, they receive their own conference letter to the meeting.  The DEC 5a; “Prior Notice” needs to be sent to the parent the same day the incident happens. 17

18  The IEP team must meet within 10 days after every suspension which removes the child beyond ten cumulative days for the school year. So, if a student has been suspended for 10 cumulative days, and is suspended again, even if it is only for one day, the IEP team must meet to conduct a Manifestation Determination. A Functional Behavior Assessment and Behavior Intervention Plan are developed ONLY if a manifestation is found. If a BIP exists, it is reviewed and revised, if necessary. They must repeat this process for every subsequent suspension during the school year. 18

19  Services must be provided to the student for every removal beyond the first 10 cumulative days of suspension. Services must be such that they afford the student the opportunity to participate in the general education curriculum and make progress on the IEP goals and objectives. 19

20  NO. Only an Administrative Law Judge can overturn an IEP decision. 20

21  YES. The child should return to school as soon as possible after the determination that the behavior was a manifestation of the child’s disability. If the child is in school and at the IEP meeting, they should return to class. If they are not in school, they are to return the next school day.  If the behavior was determined to be a manifestation of the disability, and the IEP team determined that a 45 day placement was necessary, then the student should start attending the Interim Alternative Educational Setting, as soon as possible following that decision. 21

22  A request for a 45 day placement is appropriate when the IEP team determines that the behavior IS a manifestation of the child’s disability. The behavior involves the use of controlled or illegal drugs, possession or use of a weapon, and the infliction of serious bodily injury upon another person.  A mild concussion and a broken nose are not considered “serious bodily harm”. If you are not sure the incident meets the definition for a 45 day placement, call the Legal Department. 22

23  Assignment to in-school suspension does count as an out of school suspension day(s) if the student does not receive the opportunity to participate in the general education curriculum and does not receive his/her exceptional children’s services while in ISS.  Documentation should be kept of EC services if it is delivered in ISS. Services must be comparable to service delivery listed on IEP. 23

24  Suspension off the bus only counts as an out of school suspension if the student receives special transportation as a related service on their IEP. 24

25  If the student does not receive the opportunity to participate in the general education curriculum and does not receive his EC services while attending the Alternative to Suspension Center, then the days do count as out of school suspension days. 25

26  YES. Students who are in the referral process for consideration for eligibility as a student with special needs are protected under IDEA 2004 discipline regulations regarding the need for a Manifestation Determination, Functional Behavior Assessment and a Behavior Intervention Plan. 26

27  NO. Under IDEA 2004, if a parent refuses to provide consent for EC services, then they are forfeiting their child’s right to protection under IDEA 2004 discipline regulations regarding need for a Manifestation Determination, Functional Behavior Assessment, Behavior Intervention Plan and continuation of services. 27

35  There are five acceptable reasons for a teacher and/or administrator to touch a student.  1) To quell a disturbance threatening injury to others;  2)To obtain possession of weapons or other dangerous objects on the person, or within the control, of a student;  3) For self-defense;  4)For the protection of persons or property; or  5)To maintain order on school property, in the classroom, or at a school-related activity on or off school property. Staff members need to be aware that physical confrontations with students resulting from  Administration/staff attempting to block the door way  Administration/staff attempting to restrain a student in any manner in an effort to keep the student from leaving his/her immediate presence  Administration/staff attempting to break up fights will NOT be viewed as an assault on the staff member. 35

38  1. Remember that all crimes have to be reported to CMS Law Enforcement (6030)----------DO NOT wait to conduct your own investigation to determine if allegations are true or not----- --if something is brought to your attention and you’re not sure if you should report it, REPORT IT ANYWAY--- ---CMS Law Enforcement gets those calls everyday--------but at least when you make the report, YOU ARE COVERED.  2. Be wise in your use of an EC student's first ten days of OSS------You know that all OSS suspensions beginning with the 11th OSS day of a particular school year must have an MDR. The fewer MDR’s your school has to have, the better. If an EC student gets a 10 day OSS and an MDR is required, the MDR and DTM (if requested) must be completed in 10 days---or the student will be returning to school. OSS extensions are no longer possible.  Thus, it will be very probable that many EC students will be returning to school before their DTM has been held. You will have the option of putting them in ISS in this scenario, as long as they receive their EC services there.  3. EC students can only be assigned to Turning Point Academy for 45 days  4. Re: Disciplinary data into NC WISE---- ---all PD/RO incidents must be entered within 24 hours of the time of the incident; all other incidents (UB) must be entered within 48 hrs.  5. Please provide suspension paperwork to students and parents at the time of suspension.  Be sure to give Long Term Suspension paperwork to student and parent when suspended. (if DTM). 38


40  Whenever calls are generated into the East Zone office, the first question always asked is: “Have you had the opportunity to speak with the principal?”  If the answer is “No”, then we communicate to the caller the importance of being able to afford the principal the opportunity to address the concern first.

41  If the caller shares that he/she has spoken to the principal, we next will continue the conversation with the parent by: ▪ Collecting key information (i.e. names, grade level, phone numbers) ▪ Have the caller to share their concern ▪ General discipline calls are handled in the office - specific incidents of concern are directed to Mr. Cunningham ▪ Ask the caller what the results were regarding the concern ▪ Ask the caller for the resolution they would like to see ▪ Office staff will follow-up with an administrative contact to the school for additional information to resolve the concern

42  If there are concerns regarding CMS policy and state law, at this point Dr. Robinson will become involved to address any questions regarding specific policies and laws  “Heads-up” contacts are encouraged  Our primary focus is assisting schools. Where is it that we can assist you with providing top- notch customer service?
