Join OSSE for a training that explores both the law and the school’s role for Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Section 504 is a civil rights law that requires school districts to provide eligible students with disabilities a free and appropriate public education (FAPE). Section 504 contains non-discrimination requirements which state that all students with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities must be protected from discrimination and receive education services that are equal to that of their non-disabled peers. This training will guide participants through:
- An overview of Section 504;
- A step-by-step walk-through of the Section 504 process from referral to implementation; and
- Section 504 best practices and frequently asked questions.
- This training is only open to educators, administrators, and staff who serve students in DC Public Schools and DC public charter schools.
