If your child has a 504 plan and is facing expulsion, you should know that your child has rights. In a nutshell, the school district cannot expel students for behavior that is caused by or substantially related to their disability.
A new law limits the suspension or expulsion of children in pre-school through second grade. The laws regarding suspension and expulsion for students in Grade 3 to 12 are unchanged
Three years ago, the Connecticut legislature passed a law, Public Act 07-66, to require suspensions of students to occur in school unless “the administration determines that the pupil being suspended poses such a danger to persons or property or such a disruption of the educational process that the pupil shall be excluded from school during the period of suspension.”
