Disciplining Disabled Students in Compliance with Section 504
Disabled students are generally subject to a school’s disciplinary codes.
Section 504 requires school districts to consider a student’s disability before disciplining the student under its generally applicable disciplinary policies. This includes considering whether it should exempt a disabled students from its disciplinary code and a requirement that public schools conduct manifestation reviews before suspending a student from more than ten consecutive days. This white paper reviews why a student’s disability does not necessarily mean the student is exempt from compliance with a school’s disciplinary policies or code of conduct; and discusses Section 504 and extracurricular athletics.
