This training will cover what Section 504 is, what schools must do because of it, the criteria for students to qualify for a 504 accommodation plan, and how 504s are different from IEPs. We will also cover how section 504 can help people with disabilities in college and in the workplace and provide information on Section 504 grievance procedures.
