FAQs for LEAs: Serving Disabled Students in the Age of COVID-19

UPDATED MARCH 26, 2020

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (“Section 504”) prohibits discriminating against students with disabilities, and requires local education agencies (“LEAs”) to provide equal educational opportunities to disabled students in the form of Free and Appropriate Education (“FAPE”) in the “Least Restriction Environment” (“LRE”).  The federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (“IDEA”) governs the procedural and substantive obligations of LEAs to serve disabled students who qualify for special education and related services, including the obligation to provide eligible students with a FAPE in the LRE. California state laws provide similar protections, and in some cases greater protections, to students with disabilities.
