Section 504 Conferences


It's 504 Somewhere!
Section 504: The Basics and Beyond!

Julie J. Weatherly, Esq.

Our First Alabama 504 Conference was held on September 13, 2018 and was a great success!  

Plans are already underway for our Second Annual "504 by the Shore" Conference in Alabama.  Stay tuned!

The First Annual 504 Conferences for Florida and for Georgia in 2018 were also a great success!  The Florida Conference was held at the Florida FFA Center in Haines City, Florida on February 28, 2018 and the Georgia Conference was held at the Macon Marriott City Center on March 1, 2018.  We are in the process of planning our 2019 Conferences, so be sure to check back here regularly for further information!

As was the case with our 2018 504 Conferences, the 2019 Conferences will cover issues such as making defensible disability and 504 Plan determinations; responding to challenging parent requests under Section 504; addressing issues involving Health Care Plans, Service Animals, Students with Mental Health Issues and Disability Discrimination.  A complete Manual of all issues discussed will again be developed and provided to all registrants.  Based upon our evaluations and suggestions from participants, it is likely that we will do an initial 1/2 day of the "Basics" in the afternoon and a full day following that to address the "Beyond."  

Targeted audience:  District Section 504 Coordinators and Student Services Directors; local school 504 Coordinators; School Psychologists; Counselors; School Attorneys; 504 Team members; school nurses; relevant Problem-Solving Team/RTI/MTSS personnel.
