What must the school do if the behavior was a manifestation of the disability?
The school must conduct a functional behavioral assessment, unless the school had conducted one previous to the behavioral incident which resulted in the change in placement, and implement a behavior intervention plan. If the school already had a behavior intervention plan in place prior to the incident, it must review the plan and modify it as necessary to address the behavior. The requirements for a functional behavioral assessment have not changed with IDEA 2004.
