Legal Resources
State resources on legal issues regarding student discipline.
Many legal issues surround the area of discipline and students with disabilities who are involved in disciplinary actions. Chapter 37 provides specific guidelines on what actions are appropriate to take while honoring a student's legal right to a free and appropriate public education (FAPE).
To help our state navigate the law and implement its guidelines consistently, the The Texas Behavior Support (TBS) network has developed a Discipline Flowchart for Students with Disabilities.
Senate Bill 1196 established the Texas Behavior Support Initiative and defines seclusion, restraint, and time-out and involves ongoing training of campus teams and staff in crisis prevention and intervention, time-out, and restraint.
