Students who have an IEP or 504 plan cannot be suspended or expelled from school without additional reviews of the incident. One of these reviews is called a manifestation determination meeting. At this meeting the school will have staff review the incident and determine whether or not the behavior is considered part of the students classification under an IEP or 504. If the behavior is found not to be a symptom of their current diagnosis, they can be subject to suspension or expulsion from school.
