Due process procedures are clearly outlined in IDEA. Teachers must be aware of the due process system as it relates to special education. Knowledge regarding common protocols and the components of due process are key to practicing teachers.
Part I: Visual Representation
Create a visual representation (flow chart, diagram) of the due process system and its components, indicating the required number of days allowed for each step.
Part II: Narrative
Write a 1,000- 1,250 word narrative describing how the rights of students with disabilities are different than their peers with regard to discipline. Include the responsibilities of the special education teacher and administration in regard to service time and support if a student with special education or related services is suspended from school. Discuss the importance of understanding the due process system for students with and without exceptionalities. In addition, describe the process of student discipline by citing the case study below as a specific example to support your explanation.
Isaiah and Jackson got into a fight on the playground. Jackson has an IEP for reading comprehension. Isaiah does not have an IEP. Jackson has previously been suspended for 3 days, without services. The normal school district policy is to suspend students, off campus, for 9 days if they are involved in a fight. The policy does not allow for differences in discipline regardless of who started the fight.
Submit the diagram/flowchart and the narrative as one deliverable to your instructor.
Support your summaries with a minimum of 3-5 scholarly resources.
