Sept. 11, 2019: BICA Training - Special Education Law - Section 504 Workshop

4 Sep 2019 10:58 AM | Anne Zaslofsky (Administrator)

BICA Training - Special Education Law - Section 504 Workshop

This training will be available in person and/or live on line.

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is a civil rights act that prohibits discrimination against students on the basis of their disability.  Section 504 protects all students with disabilities; those covered by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and those who are not in special education.  Section 504, like the IDEA, requires that educators deliver a free appropriate public education (FAPE), which is often accomplished by having school-based teams develop Section 504 plans to deliver a FAPE.  The purpose of this presentation is to explain the requirements of Section 504 and describe how the law affects issues such as discipline and bullying.

Participants will learn:

·         Overview of Section 504 and FAPE

·         Requirements of Section 504

·         How the law affects issues such as discipline and bullying
