Summary

This paper is intended to assist state and local education agencies in their efforts to provide appropriate educational services to students with disabilities in a manner consistent with Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and its accompanying regulations. The paper deals directly with Subpart D of Section 504, concerning preschool, elementary, and secondary education. Organization of the U.S. Office for Civil Rights (OCR) and its role in education policy are discussed. OCR's activities in four areas are noted, including technical assistance, investigation and resolution of complaints, compliance reviews, and data collection. Several important themes embodied in the Section 504 statute and regulations are examined, such as equal treatment, defining "appropriate education," and defining "handicapped person." Similarities and differences between Section 504 and the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act are addressed. Specific suggestions are offered to assist public schools in formulating procedures that may help in complying with Section 504 and in dealing with the OCR. Federal regulations for Subpart D of Section 504 are reprinted, and the forms used by school systems and individual schools in the Elementary and Secondary School Civil Rights Survey are provided.
