Expulsion Of Students Covered By IDEA And Section 504

by JoAnn M. Hart, Attorney, Boardman & Clark LLP

This Update is a follow-up to the February 2018 Expulsion Overview And Pointers Update by Doug Witte, covering general expulsion law and procedure.  This Update will cover some of the most important state and federal law considerations and procedures applicable to expulsion of a student covered by IDEA or Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.  Because of the complexity of the provisions of IDEA covering removal of students for disciplinary reasons, this Update does not attempt to cover every such provision.

Meemic Grant Opportunities for Teachers 

In a study by the U.S. Department of Education, 94 percent of public school teachers use their own money for school supplies and the average dollar amount spent on supplies was $479. The Meemic Back-to-School grants are designed to help teachers offset the cost of setting up their classrooms in the fall.

$100 Back-To-School Grant

The $100 Beef Up Your Classroom Back-to-School Supplies Grant application is extremely easy with just 3 questions:

  • What would you purchase if you received the back to school supplies grant?
  • How would these items help enrich your classroom experience?
  • What will you be looking forward to the most with the new school year?

$500 Traditional Grant

The Traditional quarterly grant is up to $500 and has only 5 questions:

  • Describe the proposed project in detail. Include the anticipated timeline for your project.
  • State what specific educational need(s) or goal(s) this project addresses. How will the students benefit from this project? 
  • How will you measure the success of your project?
  • Please describe how this project is sustainable or replicable in the future.
  • Please provide your budget detail as it relates to the requested amount.

Teachers may apply for both grants. And schools may have multiple winners for each grant.

MeemicFoundation.org/Traditional

You have to be a Foundation Club member to apply for a grant. Club registration is free and will take 2 minutes to establish a profile. Register here: MeemicFoundation.org/FoundationClub 

The application deadline for both grants is June 30, 2018.
