Lead Team Update

September 21, 2018

Office of Special Education & Federal Services- Chief of Special Education and Federal Programs, Ruby Batiste

Clarification regarding required participation for Section 504 MDR meetings:

  • Local policy does not require Educational Diagnosticians or LSSP to attend 504 MDR meetings; however, Office of Civil Rights complaints warrant additional support to help the committee establish if there is a link to the disability. The purpose of the Educational Diagnostician/LSSP is to serve as the disability expert regarding manifestation of the disability.
  • The intent of attendance is for repeat offense situations only. Attendance is not expected at "all" 504 MDR meetings, rather for those students with repeat violations warranting disciplinary change of placements and the disability is related to ADHD, learning, or psychological concerns.
  • SPED staff is not responsible for scheduling or facilitating any 504 MDR meeting. SPED staff's role is attendance only to provide feedback related to the manifestation of the student's disability.

Please contact our office with any questions or concerns & have a wonderful weekend!

Each school drafts a dad to be its team captain and this event celebrates the team captain’s leadership.

Every school is invited to participate.
