A Professional Development Opportunity for Administrators in General and Special Education

This professional development opportunity is designed to provide multiple perspectives on current legal issues impacting both general and special education within an SRBI Framework. Participants will receive a practical synthesis of significant legal issues and decisions regarding the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA 2004) and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act.

The presenters, a panel of attorneys working with local education agencies (LEAs) and families, will discuss current legal issues relevant to IDEA that impact education in Connecticut. They will cover Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act and other legal issues relevant to the provision of special education. The session will conclude with a question-and-answer period.
