The purpose of this study was to determine the nature of written policies regarding suspension and expulsion of handicapped students in local education agencies in Virginia. Existing policies were examined in light of six components derived from the review of federal legislation, litigation, and model policies from other states. In addition, responses to a questionnaire were summarized and analyzed to enhance understanding of the use of these procedures with exceptional students in Virginia. Synthesis and refinement of this information produced components of a model procedure that reflects up-to-date trends in disciplining exceptional students.
