What You Cannot Ignore About Section 504
Event Single


Single Workshop Registration
Prescriptions for Section 504 Plans and similar issues are addressed in this interactive workshop on Section 504. The requirements under Section 504 and the ADA are ever-changing and sometimes poorly defined, yet districts may face substantial liability—including potential monetary damages—for noncompliance. The two, primary obligations under Section 504 – providing equal access and a free appropriate public education – are discussed, with a step-by-step tour through the FAPE process as the focus. From child find and assessment to eligibility and developing appropriate Section 504 Plans, we will discuss best practices for ensuring compliance and avoiding the major pitfalls of Section 504. We will also examine legal updates and their impact on Section 504 programs and requirements.

Please join us as we hear from presenters who share legal and practical viewpoints regarding district responsibilities for addressing the mental health needs of general education and special education students. This “Food for Thought” series offers a unique workshop setting over lunch to collaboratively discuss trends in the area of youth mental health and review recent relevant developments in the legal field.
