Legal Issues in Educating Students with Disabilities
Fowler, Gerard A.; Rainey, Amanda L.
Journal of School Public Relations, v28 n3 p221-233 Sum 2007
Since the passing of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, Americans With Disabilities Act, and the Individuals With Disabilities Education Act, public and private schools have had to adapt the ways in which they provide education and services to their students and communities. It is essential for school public relations professionals to be familiar and conversant in legal issues relating to individuals with disabilities and the way in which the educational system supports them. This article offers background information on prominent legislation, requirements for schools, and successful strategies for handling disciplinary actions, by reviewing recent case law and legislation.
