Assembly Bill 87 – Amends Existing Law To Allow The Recording Of Section 504 Plan Meetings And Team Meetings
Local education agencies (LEAs) are required to comply with Section 504 of the federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Existing law requires LEAs to identify, locate, and assess individuals with exceptional needs and to provide those pupils with a free appropriate public education in the least restrictive environment, with special education and related services as reflected in an individualized education program. Existing law allows the parent, guardian, or LEA of the pupil to audio record the proceedings of individualized education program team meetings.
AB 87 expands existing law to allow a parent, guardian, or LEA to audio record plan meetings and any team meetings held for pupils pursuant to Section 504 of the federal Rehabilitation Act of 1973. A parent, guardian, or LEA intending to audio record a meeting or any team meeting must provide notice of their intent to audio record at least 24 hours before the meeting. If an LEA provides notice of its intent to audio record and the pupil’s parent or guardian objects or refuses to attend the meeting because it will be audio recorded, the meeting shall not be audio recorded.
(AB 87 adds Article 10 (commencing with Section 270) to Chapter 2 of Part 1 of Division 1 of Title I of the Education Code.)
