The Parent Educator Resource Guide reminds all educational institutions receiving federal financial assistance from the Department of Education that they must vigilantly work to ensure compliance with Section 504 and other Federal laws that protect students with disabilities. This resource guide was also developed to help parents of students with disabilities understand the obligations imposed under Section 504. In particular, the resource guide summarizes key requirements of Section 504, and aims to increase understanding of these requirements for both parents and members of the school community alike.
