Hello and thank you for consulting JA,

SO I am assuming that she has an IEP. Why does she need special education of she is an honor roll student? Is she on any medication?

I believe that this is a medication issue and should be brought to the attention of the prescribing doctor. It may be that this aggressive behavior is actually caused by the medication. OR she may need a change of dose or new medication to calm her aggressive behaviors.
