My Child Is on an IEP

: Intro > IEP/504/None > Discipline > ... > Manifestation Team > Manifestation of Disability > No Drugs, Weapons, or Injury

The manifestation team determined that my child's behavior was:

a manifestation of his or her disability and the behavior did not involve drugs*, weapons*, or serious bodily injury*.


The school must return your child to his or her current educational placement unless you and the school agree to a change of placement or alternative transportation as part of the IEP process.1 In the alternative, the school district may recommend a change in placement to a more restrictive setting.

In the case of termination of bus services, the school must reinstate transportation services only if they are in the IEP.

If the school district has not already done so, it must conduct a Functional Behavioral Assessment (FBA)* and implement a Behavioral Intervention Plan (BIP)* for your child.
