School districts are faced with innumerable obligations imposed by federal law and enforced by the Department of Education (DOE) with respect to students with disabilities. These obligations are growing as DOE continues to issue significant guidance with respect to these laws, and as the Office for Civil Rights (OCR) continues to implement and enforce them. School districts need to know and understand the recent guidance that has been issued on ADHD, the use of positive behavioral interventions and supports, and the role of police in schools. In addition, school districts need to be aware of recent OCR and DOJ’s enforcement activity with respect to website accessibility and critical compliance issues under federal law.

Please join Tess O’Brien-Heinzen, school-law attorney, as she provide a refresher on Section 504, the ADA, and the IDEA, highlights recent significant guidance; identifies the newest decisions and complaint resolutions; and advises school districts on practical tips to avoid OCR investigations.
