A manifestation determination meeting is required for removing a student with a disability beyond 10 school days. At this meeting, the team must answer two questions:
1) if the conduct was caused by, or did it have a direct and substantial relationship to the student’s disabilities; and
2) was the conduct a direct result of the district’s failure to implement the IEP? If the answer to either one of those questions is yes then the behavior is determined to be a manifestation of the student’s disability.
