Section 504 and Student Health Problems: The Pivotal Position of the School Nurse
Zirkel, Perry A.; Granthom, Margarita Fernan; Lovato, Leanna
Journal of School Nursing, v28 n6 p423-432 Dec 2012
News reports illustrate controversies between parents and schools in response to student health problems. Today's school nurse is in a pivotal position for the avoidance and resolution of disputes not only by increasing awareness of student health conditions but also by having a working knowledge of legal developments under Section 504 and its sister statute--the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). The ADA amendments of 2008 have extended the standards for eligibility and expanded questions about school districts' obligations under Section 504 and the ADA. This article provides a comprehensive synthesis of recent case law and related legal developments under this pair of federal statutes, culminating in practical implications and professional recommendations for school nurses.
