From our Public Policy Chairperson

The Office of Special Education and Rehabilitative Services just released two very important documents:

1) The rights of students with disabilities under IDEA and Section 504 in public charter schools <Dear Colleague LetterKnow Your Rights Factsheet>

2) A resource guide for parents and educators to Section 504 in public elementary and secondary schools.

<Parent and Educator Resource Guide to Section 504 in Public Elementary and Secondary Schools>

We will have more information about the upcoming Supreme Court case very shortly.
