RHMS ecosystem restoration project

The sixth graders at Rose Hill Middle School worked on an exciting new unit on ecosystems restoration in science this fall. During this unit, students not only learned what makes a healthy forest ecosystem but also got the opportunity to plan and execute their very own restoration project for a damaged ecosystem on Rose Hill’s campus.

    Discipline: Change in Placement

    File: IGB-R: Special Education, Cont.

    A change of placement occurs when a special education student is:

    • Removed from current placement for more than ten consecutive school days in a school year; or
    • Subjected to a series of removals in a school year and which constitute a pattern of removal because:
      1. The series of removals total more than ten school days in a year.
      2. The student behavior is substantially similar to the student’s behavior in previous incidents that resulted in the series of removals; and
      3. Factors such as the length of each removal, the total amount of time a student is removed, and the proximity of the removals to one another

    Whether a series of removal constitutes a change in placement is determined on a case-by-case basis by the building principal and special education director and is subject to review through due process and judicial proceedings. The building administrator will notify the special education director or designee of relevant circumstances by email or in writing.
