Price: $250.00


Presented by Teri E. Engler, Esq.

As the prevalence of children with allergies, chronic health conditions and special health care needs rises, districts face significant legal and practical challenges when meeting the needs of these students at school and school-related activities. In this audio conference, you’ll learn directly from an experienced school law attorney about current legal requirements and recent case law to help ensure your programs and policies comply.

In just 90 minutes, you and your staff will learn:

  • When and for whom 504 eligibility would be appropriate
  • Your child find and evaluation duties under IDEA and Section 504, including best practices to avoid violations
  • Assessing policies and procedures to ensure staff timely identify students who may need Section 504 and/or health plans as a result of an allergy or health issue
  • How, why and when using less formal individual health care plans (as opposed to 504 plans) may be inappropriate and legally insufficient
  • Ways to maintain student privacy as required under FERPA, while also ensuring need-to-know staff have necessary information in case of emergency
