Anything else I need to know?

We’ll provide each conference participant with a notebook packed with great info from all of the sessions. We’ve also scheduled Q&A at the end of each day, and there are many opportunities to ask questions and network.

What about the CESD Section 504 forms?

The forms are so popular that they now have their own webpage. You can access the CESD Section 504 Forms webpage by clicking here.

20th Annual Southwest Section 504 Conference on November 14-15, 2016.

As schools continue to expand the ranks of Section 504 students as required by the ADAAA, new problems and concerns arise each year. We’ll be addressing those issues in November, including changes to the CESD forms with respect to annual review, discussion of OCR’s July 2016 guidance on ADHD, legal updates from the Section 504 and ADA world, and practical sessions on how to improve your school’s legal compliance.

The final agenda is not yet ready for publication.  Stay tuned for more info...
