504 Services and Accommodations
1. Section 504 of The Rehabilitation Act requires public schools to offer services and accommodations for eligible students with disabilities.
These services help students with special health needs fully take part in school. Your child may be eligible for health services, educational accommodations, or both.
Contact info: Have questions about getting your student a 504 plan or their eligibility for one?

Webinar Series for Families of Students with Disabilities
When students transitioned to remote learning last school year, the DOE launched a series of webinars for families of students with disabilities called the Beyond Access series. The series is continuing this year with webinars designed to support families of students with disabilities during this challenging time. The webinars are hosted by the DOE in partnership with experts in the field. Topics include executive cognitive functioning, literacy, social emotional learning, among other topics.
Content experts will provide strategies and resources that families can use to support their children's learning and overall well-being at home. The webinars, which began on January 12, are being held every Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. through the end of May.
Families can review webinar topics and register for a webinar by visiting Eventbrite. The webinars are also listed on the DOE family-facing website and calendar. Past webinars are available on YouTube and can be viewed with English or translated captions. Please share information about this series with parent coordinators and families in your school community.
