Workshop will explain edits to civil rights law
The Rhode Island Parent Information Network will hold a workshop titled “Section 504: A Parent’s Guide” in the media center at the Narragansett Middle School on April 10. Section 504 is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities.
The workshop will include a basic overview of the changes to the law. Participants will learn how this pertains to children with disabilities and includes an exploration of how some students may now qualify for additional supports and accommodations in public schools.
