hillsboro, OR, November 12, 2017 --(PR.com
)-- Edupliance announces a webinar titled, “Section 504 and ADA: Student Disability Rights” that aims to provide attendees with the key components of nondiscrimination and provides helpful tips on what it takes for postsecondary programs to pass muster under Section 504 and the ADA. The event going to be held live on, Nov 21, 2017 from 1 PM – 2 PM ET/ 10 AM - 11 AM PT.
The entirety of Section 504 is comprised of one sentence: "No otherwise qualified person with a disability in the United States...shall, solely by reason of...disability, be denied the benefits of, be excluded from participating in, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance."
But what does this mean in the practical context of a post-secondary education, and what is expected of schools? Since the implementation of Section 504 and, later, the ADA, courts have been busy analyzing the language and deciding student disability rights issues.
The 60 minutes webinar will be conducted by expert Erin D. Gilsbach, Esq., who is one of the nation’s foremost experts on the topic of immigration and education law. She has presented on this topic at the National School Boards Association annual conference, the Education Law Association annual conference, and the North Dakota School Boards Association annual conference. Atty. Gilsbach is an experienced speaker at the state and national levels on this issue as well as many other issues regarding Education and Education Law. She currently serves as the Director of Professional and Policy Development and an attorney with the PA-based law firm of King Spry Herman Freund &Faul and is a founding member of the Greyfriars Institute, a nonprofit affiliate entity dedicated to providing quality professional education in the area of school law to educators and school leaders.
