Discipline

There are five principles in the federal and state regulations that guide the discipline requirements for students with disabilities:

1. All children, including children with disabilities, deserve safe, well-disciplined schools and orderly learning environments;
2. Teachers and school administrators should have the tools they need to assist them in preventing misconduct and discipline problems and to address these problems, if they arise;
3. There must be a balanced approach to the issue of discipline of children with disabilities that reflects the need for orderly and safe schools and the need to protect the rights of children with disabilities to a free appropriate public education;
4. Appropriately developed IEPs with well-developed behavior intervention strategies decrease school discipline problems; and
5. School personnel may consider any unique circumstances on a case-by-case basis when determining whether a change in placement is appropriate for a student with a disability who violates a code of student conduct.

Asheboro City Schools adheres to the guiding practices for implementing policies governing services for children with disabilities regarding disciplinary procedures.
