    This presentation will then take a deep dive into the discipline process and examine tricky discipline issues to provide practical guidance and a solid understanding of how the legal requirements play out in everyday discipline scenarios to help schools minimize and limit liability. From conducting manifestation determination meetings to the services provided following a suspension, this presentation will answer your biggest questions regarding the discipline of students with disabilities.
