Federal Nondiscrimination Regulations: A Procedural Compliance Handbook. Draft.
Governor's Committee on Employment of the Handicapped, Trenton, NJ.; Nevada State Dept. of Education, Carson City.
This handbook is designed to provide educators with the procedures and resources necessary to achieve compliance with Federal nondiscrimination regulations. The components of procedural compliance are examined as follows: (1) designation of a responsible coordinator; (2) institutional self-evaluation; (3) notification of nondiscrimination policy; (4) recordkeeping; (5) adoption of specific grievance procedures; and (6) federal assurances. A final section of the handbook contains a directory of State and Federal resources. A chart describinq all areas of Federal nondiscrimination regulations appears at the beginning of section two and is followed by a grid of the procedural requirements for each regulation. A diaqram outlining the evolution of Federal civil rights' mandates, a comprehensive procedural compliance check list, and an outline of the deadlines for section 504 compliance are also included. Each procedural regulation is reviewed in terms of its application to Title VI (race and national origin), Title IX (sex), Section 504 (handicap), and the Office of Civil Rights Guidelines for Vocational Education. Since the Lau remedies for students with limited English proficiency have some regulatory application to educational institutions, they are also covered as an adjunct to Title VI. (Author/JCD)
