2461b AdmGuide_Disciplining a 504 Student

If a student disabled under Section 504 violates the Code of Conduct and is subject to suspension of more than ten
(10) days or expulsion, a meeting of the student's 504 Team will be convened to determine whether or not there is
a causal relationship between the behavior and the disability.
Prior to such a meeting, the Director of Student Services shall ensure that a recent evaluation (not more than one
(1) year old) is available for use by the Team to help them determine causal relationship. If no recent evaluation is
available, then one is to be completed prior to the conference.
If the 504 Team determines that there is no causal relationship between the behavior and the disability, the
disabled student may be suspended or expelled using the procedure described in AG 5610 - Suspension/ Expulsion of Nondisabled Students.
If the 504 Team establishes a causal relationship between the behavior and the disability, then the student may not
be suspended for more than ten (10) days in a school year or expelled.
Emergency removal of a 504 student from his/her current placement may take place through parental agreement to
an interim placement or through injunctive relief from a court, when the current placement presents a substantial
likelihood of resulting in injury to the student or others.
