Section 504: Guidelines for Educators.
Utah State Office of Education, Salt Lake City.
This manual's purpose is to provide technical assistance to educators regarding their obligations under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, which protects persons participating in federally funded programs and activities from discrimination based upon their disability status. An introduction outlines the three major areas of emphasis of Section 504 and presents the definition of "disabled". The manual then presents definitions of relevant terms and examples of persons who are possibly eligible under Section 504. Responsibilities of the school district are reviewed, including provision of a free appropriate education, employment practices, and program accessibility. Section 504 is then compared with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act; a question-and-answer section on Section 504 issues is presented; and sample policies and forms are provided. Appendices contain information for inservice education, the text of Section 504, Uniform Federal Accessibility Standards, and Section 504 compliance self-evaluation procedures. (JDD)
