Agenda Item #39


Title
Section 504/ADA Procedures Manual for Students

Discussion

 

The Section 504/ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) Procedures Manual for Students required several revisions in order to comply with recent changes to state and federal statutes:  The significant changes include the following:

 

  • Addition of eligibility procedures for the John M. McKay Scholarship Program as they apply to Section 504/ADA students with 504 Accommodation Plans.
  • Addition of clarifying language and related form to distinguish between Section 504 eligibility and the need for a Section 504 Accommodation Plan.


Recommendation

Approve the revisions and/or additions to the Section 504/ADA Procedures Manual for Students for publication on the Brevard Public Schools Intranet.
