Understanding and Implementing Section 504

Last Date:

New OSSE Location
Room: 
Fifth Floor Room 522
Details: 

Join OSSE for a webinar 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 appropriate public education (FAPE). Section 504 contains non-discrimination requirements which states 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. 

The webinar 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
  • Section 504 best practices and frequently asked questions
