School’s Out, Now What? Inclusive Extra-Curricular Activities
The Rehabilitation Act and Title II of the ADA require that public schools provide program access for students with disabilities. These requirements extend to extra-curricular events offered by the school. This webinar will include a review of the US Department of Education’s January 2013 letter detailing the obligation of public schools to include students with disabilities in athletic programming under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. It will also consider the benefits of inclusion for students with and without disabilities.
