I don't know if I am at the right place to ask questions. But I am confussed about how to ask. Please corrrect me. Here is my situation my 16 y/o son took a knife to school yesterday and showed it to another boy that turned him in(which was the right thing to do). The principal called and said we would need to come and pick him up. We were told we would be contacted by someone from the county school board for a hearing, later that day we were contacted by a member of the school board and told us the hearing will be this Tuesday. Today the Special Education teacher contacted us, she said I would need to stay after the hearing for a manifestation meeting as well as an amendment to his IEP. I have never heard of a manifestion meeting. When I did a google search I found this site. Can someone please tell me what I need to be prepared for? He does have an IEP in place. Please help before Tuesday. Thanks to anyone that can help.
