Student B

Student B., a high school student at a local school district, alleged discrimination under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. RILS filed a complaint with the Office of Civil Rights on his behalf. After a full investigation, it was determined that the District had failed to comply with Section 504 by not providing further evaluation of the student and not advising his parents of their rights in the process and of their right to appeal decisions with which they might disagree.

The Office of Civil Rights recently closed its four year monitoring period of the District as they determined that the District had changed its policies and trained its staff regarding their legal obligations to their students. Full compliance with the law has been achieved.
