Section 504 is a commonly-misunderstood law, and its implementation can often lead to frustration and potential legal compliance issues. In this session, nationally-recognized school law attorney Erin D. Gilsbach will get to the bottom of some of the trickiest Section 504 issues and provide helpful information to solve some of the most common compliance problems. In a practical (and often humorous) down-to-earth style, she uses caselaw and other real-life examples to explain some of the most difficult legal concepts and help untangle the multi-faceted concepts of this often-befuddling law. Atty. Gilsbach will address a wide range of issues, including eligibility, Section 504 plan development, accommodations, extracurricular activities, attendance issues, and more. This is a session you won’t want to miss!
