Lehigh University’s intensive one-week institute provides a practical analysis of legislation, regulations, and court decisions relating to the education of students with disabilities. The symposium is designed for special education coordinators and teachers, principals, psychologists, parent advocates, charter school personnel, attorneys (on both sides), hearing officers, state education agency personnel, and other individuals interested in a thorough exploration of the special education legal landscape.
The program offers two parallel tracks, one for basic that offers in-depth foundation knowledge about the IDEA and Section 504: eligibility, FAPE, LRE, student discipline, and remedies. The other track is for advanced participants, offering brand new “hot topics,” such as child find nuances, pending Supreme Court cases, the behavioral legal alphabet soup, Section 504 update, and settlement strategies.
Section 504 Coordinators Institute
June 22–23, 2017
If you are a school district Section 504 coordinator, this two-day program is specially designed for you. This special program will provide the latest legal developments and the shared effective practices among new and experienced 504 coordinators from across the country. In addition to this theoretical framework, a practical focus of the Institute will be “how to” guidance to inform the every-day work of Section 504 coordinators.
