Manifestation Results

IDEA requires a school to identify whether a long-term removal was due to behavior that was a manifestation of a child's disability by conducting a manifestation determination. This part of the tool identifies what rules apply when the behavior is and is not a manifestation.

The tool currently only includes the federal requirements. Federal requirements apply in all states and states may add on (but not subtract) from the Federal laws. The tool doesn't currently incorporate court decisions or other authoritative interpretation of the law that can clarify issues not explicitly clear from the statute or regulations alone.
