How can you be sure you are effectively managing your district’s 504 data and documentation?
The duties of school districts under The Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) continue to expand and the documentation requirements for those students who are eligible for Section 504 are no exception.
The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) appears to be as concerned about the process followed and data collected by districts regarding an eligible student as it is about the accommodations offered by districts.
With the recent changes to the ADA eligibility criteria, it is likely that your Section 504 population is on the rise. As the numbers grow, it becomes increasingly difficult for administrators to effectively manage the student information, the staff, the 504 Plans and other 504 data required for every Section 504 student. Unchecked, it is likely to only get harder.
