    BICA Training - Special Education Law - Section 504 Workshop

    This training will be available in person and/or live on line.

    Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is a civil rights act that prohibits discrimination against students on the basis of their disability.  Section 504 protects all students with disabilities; those covered by the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and those who are not in special education.  Section 504, like the IDEA, requires that educators deliver a free appropriate public education (FAPE), which is often accomplished by having school-based teams develop Section 504 plans to deliver a FAPE.  The purpose of this presentation is to explain the requirements of Section 504 and describe how the law affects issues such as discipline and bullying.

    Participants will learn:

    ·         Overview of Section 504 and FAPE

    ·         Requirements of Section 504

    ·         How the law affects issues such as discipline and bullying

    Faculty:  Mitchell Yell, Ph.D. - Univ. of South Carolina, Fred and Francis Palmetto Chair in Teacher Education, Special Education

    Endrew F. V. Douglas County School District (2017): What The Ruling Means For IEP Teams

    The U.S. Supreme Court’s special education ruling in the 2017 case, Endrew F. v. Douglas County School District, is having important effects on special education, including the development of students’ individualized education programs (IEP). In this presentation, Dr. Yell will first summarize the Endrew case and how it effects the primary obligation of special education teachers and administrators, which is to confer a free appropriate public education (FAPE). Next, Dr. Yell will examine how IEP teams can develop educationally meaningful and legally sound IEPs that meet the Endrew standard. Finally, Dr. Yell will address the special case of developing behavioral IEPs.

    When: Tuesday, April 16th, 2019 (1:00-4:00 pm)
