Questions and Answers on

General Authority of School Personnel


At the beginning of the school year, students often receive guidelines of expected standards of behavior, dress, academic integrity, and attendance, as well as the consequences of violating those standards. IDEA addresses the extent to which schools may take disciplinary action when a child with disabilities violates a local code of student conduct. These codes vary from place to place, so it may be important for you to get a copy of your local school district or State policies with respect to acceptable (and unacceptable) student conduct. This issue of NASET’s Q & A Corner addresses the general authority of school personnel when students with disabilities violate a code of student conduct.
