LegalOne: Creating Effective Section 504 Plans: It’s Not as Easy as You Think!




Section 504 statute and regulations provide much less guidance than IDEA, leading to confusion among practitioners. Due to lack of clarity, mistakes are made, exposing school districts to significant liability, potentially harming children, and putting the careers of educators and school leaders at risk.

Jacob S. Feldman, Esq.

This workshop will provide practical, easy to apply guidance that addresses:

• The different test for determining discipline for students with 504 plans.

• When and how to conduct reviews of 504 plans (annual reviews of 504 plans are not required).

• How to respond when provided with a doctor’s note declaring a student eligible for a 504 plan. Medical diagnosis is not required for 504 plan eligibility, and a medical diagnosis in and of itself does not make a student eligible for a 504 plan.

• The due process rights that parents are entitled to under 504 v. IDEA.

• The nuts and bolts of Section 504 litigation.

 Best practices for reducing potential liability.

• Lessons learned from Section 504 case law.

• Practical application of knowledge through video case studies and small group discussion.
