difficult child was suspended again for 2 days (tomorrow is the 2nd day). This is 7 1/2 days so far this year. Yesterday when I was trying to find out more about the Manisfestaion Determination I found that sometimes in school suspensions count towards the 10 days. This is what I found: Are "in-school suspensions" or other in-school disciplinary measures considered when determining whether the child has been removed from school for ten cumulative school days during a school year? In-school removals from class must be considered a removal unless the child has the opportunity: * to continue to participate in the general curriculum; * to receive the services specified in his or her IEP; and * to participate with nondisabled children to the extent he or she would have in the current placement. I'm guessing between in school and out of school suspsensions this year he is at the 10 days. I'm almost certain that if there is a manifestation determination they will find his behaviors are due to his disability. Is there any reason we shouldn't pursue this?
