In December 2016, the U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights (OCR) published the “Parent and Educator Guide to Section 504 in Public Schools,” a comprehensive 52-page guidance document.
The Parent and Educator Guide to Section 504 includes eleven scenarios. These scenarios are used to educate readers about legal issues and concepts under Section 504.
In January 2017, Pete Wright did a training program for approximately 200 U.S. Department of Education, Office for Civil Rights attorneys and staff investigators about IDEA 2004 vis a vis Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. The training was held at the USDOE's office in DC and telecast nationwide to the regional offices.
As a part of the preparation for the OCR training, Pete decided that one of Wrightslaw's next books will be about Section 504, ADA, and education, from daycare to higher ed.
Along that line, we created a new Wrightslaw quiz titled What's your 504 IQ?
Give the quiz a try.
