Summary

  • It's time to play ball with the Office of Civil Rights and reexamine your efforts to accommodate students with disabilities in your athletic program. A recent OCR "Dear Colleague Letter" reveals a renewed focus on enforcement to ensure students with disabilities can participate in school sports, as well as a significant departure from prior interpretations of the law regarding extracurricular and non-curricular activities. In this recorded audio conference, respected school attorney Karen Haase reviews OCR's guidance and explains what it means to your district.
