DOE Prods Schools On Compensatory Services For Students With Disabilities
[Source: Disability Scoop]
Amid a rise in complaints, federal education officials are reminding schools across the nation about their obligation to provide compensatory services to students with disabilities.
The U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights issued a new fact sheet last week doubling down on the responsibilities schools have under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973.
Even during the COVID-19 pandemic, the law requires that students with disabilities are provided appropriate evaluations and services, the guidance indicates, adding that the right to a free appropriate public education remains intact “regardless of the challenges schools face.”
