First Wed – School Discipline/Children with Disabilities

May 3 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Spec Ed Training

Topic: School Discipline for Children with Disabilities – IEP, FBA, BIP, MDR, OSS, ISS…What Does This Alphabet Soup Mean?

Find out how to decipher all the acronyms and learn more about school discipline processes. Data retrieved from the Office for Civil Rights shows that students with disabilities are disproportionately impacted by school disciplinary decisions. These decisions often result in suspensions and exclusions from school which impedes the child’s learning and overall academic achievement. Often the suspensions are for behaviors that are caused by the child’s disability. This presentation will help you to understand the laws protecting children with disabilities and how to better advocate for your child’s behavioral and emotional needs.

What are First Wednesdays?

The First Wednesday Series offers an opportunity for parents, family members, and professionals who advocate for children to learn about special education and school discipline.

Training for this session will take place in Room 520 in the Children and Family Services Center at the corner of Davidson and East Fifth Street in Charlotte.
