Journal of Special Education Leadership, v18 n2 p24-29 Oct 2005
One hundred fifty-four special education directors in one northeastern state were surveyed regarding how specific components of Section 504 were implemented. Mean scores revealed that districts are properly implementing components of the law, including providing Section 504 plans only to students with disabilities, reviewing Section 504 plans on a regular basis, and providing students and families with information on due process procedures. Separate item frequencies revealed that some districts may be providing Section 504 plans to students without disabilities, and that training and information dissemination regarding Section 504 may be inconsistent. Nine percent of the reporting districts indicated that training is "Never" or "Rarely" provided to district staff, while 23% reported distributing Section 504 procedures to district staff only "Rarely" or "Sometimes." An additional 5% did not know whether Section 504 procedures were distributed to staff. (Contains 2 tables.)
