Chapter 13 Special Education Law

When using in-school suspension with students with disabilities, it is not necessary to continue the student's FAPE.
Restraint and seclusion should be addressed in the student's IEP.

According to the U.S. Supreme Court, corporal punishment in schools is prohibited by the U.S. Constitution.
If a student has a history of problem behavior, or if such behaviors can be readily anticipated, then the student's IEP must address that behavior.
It is up to the IEP team to decide when behaviors are impending the learning of the student and his or her peers and, therefore, they should be addressed in the IEP.
