Yes. However, there are numerous protections that a student with a disability is afforded during the disciplinary process.

According to the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), a suspension of a student identified as having a disability or that the school district has reason to believe may have a disability for more than ten (10) days is considered a change in placement. This occurrence triggers all of the parental due process rights contained in the IDEA. The ten (10) day disability criteria does not need to be consecutive days but are counted yearly.
