Description

2017 New & Experienced Federal Program Director's Meeting + Section 504 Training




The Federal Programs Department, in conjunction with the English Learner & Migrant Education Department and the Special Education Department, provides annual training for district Federal Program Directors that focuses on the many unique aspects of running federal programs within districts and schools in the state of Idaho. This training is for “new” directors with less than three years’ federal programs experience, and for those directors who have more than three years’ federal programs experience, but want focused training in specific areas.

Many sessions will also highlight the new Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA) and how it affects certain program areas.




The Section 504 Update training is only available on September 15th and will be presented by David Richards.

New to Section 504 or want to improve your understanding of a public school's duties under the law? This session is for you. Veteran school lawyer David Richards will explain how 504 and IDEA fit together, and the importance of process-based compliance to satisfy the Office for Civil Rights. He'll walk through the school's duty to provide a Section 504 FAPE (from child find, through evaluation and eligibility, creation of the 504 Plan to re-evaluation) and the law’s nondiscrimination protections including manifestation determination and equal participation in extracurricular and nonacademic services. Questions are encouraged.

If you have any questions about 504 plans or about the 504 training, please email Lisa Kramer at lkramer@sde.idaho.gov.
