Ensuring Compliance with IDEA and Section 504 during the Coronavirus Outbreak
In light of the current coronavirus outbreak, it is important to think ahead, plan, and prepare to ensure compliance with IDEA and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. What do extended periods of school closures mean in terms of providing a free and appropriate public education (FAPE) to students with disabilities? What considerations should be made for students who have health conditions that may put them at higher risk for a severe reaction to the virus? During this virtual training session, we will cover considerations that need to be made in serving students with disabilities during these challenging times, including addressing common scenarios likely to arise during the next few months, as well as explore implications on the use of IDEA funds.
