Stopping the Schoolhouse to

Federal Special Education Law

David Smith (not his real name) was a 15 year-old, 7th grader at a Jefferson Parish, Louisiana, junior high
school who was headed for juvenile detention and, most likely, a life of prisons and jails. The fact that
David had been identified as a child with an educational disability (Emotional Disturbance) and had an
Individualized Education Program (IEP) in place did not stop his school from suspending him for 79 days during
the abbreviated, post-Katrina 2005-2006 school year. No educational or related services of any kind were
provided to David during his removal days, with the exception of homebound services for two days per week
during one 45-day period. Oftentimes, the school would simply
call David’s mother or grandmother and demand that he be
picked up from school. David had also been arrested at school
three times during the school year — proof that the school-toprison
pipeline in Jefferson Parish was working very efficiently.
Despite David’s IEP and despite the frequent behavioral problems
that were clearly related to his disability, the school had
not conducted a Functional Behavior Assessment (FBA) nor
developed a Behavior Intervention Plan (BIP), as required by
federal law, until months after David had been removed from
school. Like the vast majority of children with emotional disturbance
in the Jefferson Parish School System, the only help
David ever received for the behavioral manifestations of his disability
was a completely inadequate fifteen minutes of “counseling”
once a month with the school guidance counselor.
Now, hundreds of special education students in Jefferson Parish,
Louisiana, who, like David, were systematically denied the help
they are due under federal law are getting desperately needed
educational services under a new Corrective Action Plan (CAP).
The CAP was developed as part of a Mediated Settlement Agreement
with the Louisiana Department of Education.
