KSBA offering two-day training Sept. 19-20 for school personnel responsible for accommodations for students and adults with disabilities

Do your staff members understand their legal responsibilities to students, personnel and those invited to school and district activities? This KSBA training event is an opportunity to get them the information they need to keep your district out of legal trouble, and to avoid bad publicity regarding your accommodations for individuals with disabilities.

KSBA’s annual Section 504/ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) conference will be Sept. 19-20 at the Embassy Suites on Newtown Pike in Lexington.

Among topics covered during the sessions are what staff can and cannot do and ask about the use of service animals; use of motorized vehicles; what cannot be asked about an applicant’s or employee’s disability; student issues under Section 504 of the federal Rehabilitation Act; and enforcement by the court system or agencies such as the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Office of Civil Rights, and the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

Presenters are Teresa T. Combs, KSBA’s director of Legal and Administrative Training Services; John Fogle, KSBA staff attorney; and Janet Jeanes, KSBA senior policy consultant. 

Registration is discounted for staff of districts enrolled in KSBA’s Special Education Service.  Fees are:

·        $350 per person for both days for members of the service or $1,050 per person for both days for nonmembers.

·        $200 per person for one day for service members or $600 per person for nonmembers.
