It’s important that students with disabilities and their families understand their rights when it comes to discipline at school. Although students with disabilities may be subject to school discipline, just like any other student, students with disabilities do have legal and procedural rights to protect them from being disciplined for behaviors that are related to their disabilities.

These animated videos, available in English, Spanish, American Sign Language (ASL), and closed-captioning, provide information about the rights of students with disabilities who are facing school discipline.
