OSEP says IHO can find violation of code of conduct

In a recent memo, OSEP stated that hearing officers determining a student's placement in the wake of a purported disciplinary infraction may decide not only the appropriateness of the district's manifestation determination and the appropriate placement of the student, they may also consider whether the student's conduct actually amounted to a code of conduct violation.

  1. Hurrah for this decision. Our local district has informed me that the schools Code of Conduct overrules parts 200 and 201. I of course know better.
