A manifestation determination requires the IEP team to review the possible relationship between a student's disability and the student's behavior that may result in a suspension or explusion. The team must consider evaluation and diagnostic results, including data gleaned from the F.B.A. The team must also determine if the IEP and placement is appropriate, if the required program, including supplementary aids and services were provided, if the delineated behavioral interventions were consistently/reliably implemented as outlined in the IEP, and if the student understood his or her behavior and could control the behavior.
is a decision made by the IEP Team as to whether a behavior is related to a child's disability.
Part of a pre-expulsion assessment in which the individualized education program (IEP) team determines whether a special education student's misconduct that otherwise could warrant expulsion is, instead, a direct manifestation of that student's identified disability and, therefore, not something for which the student may be expelled from school.
Decision whether inappropriate and/or dangerous behavior is understood by the child and whether the child can control that behavior. A manifestation determination may be required after a student has been removed from school as a disciplinary action.
A determination made by the child's IEP team that answers several questions about the behavior for which the district or building administration seeks to suspend or expel the child, i.e. change the student's educational placement for disciplinary reasons.

The team process used to decide if a student's behavior was related to the student's disability and whether the student understood the consequences of his misbehavior.

Required by the IDEA Amendments of 1997 whenever school officials seek to discipline a student with disabilities in a manner that would result in a change of placement, suspension, or expulsion in excess of 10 days.
When a child with a disability engages in misconduct that could result in suspension or expulsion, the IEP team must make a determination of whether the child's disability is related to the misconduct. This determination is called the "Manifestation Determination".
a question as to whether a student's misbehavior was caused by or related to his disability; if there is a relationship, the student cannot be expelled or suspended for over ten days; if there is no relationship, the student may be disciplined in the same manner as his nondisabled peers, including expulsion or long-term suspension
