Gain an in-depth understanding of the role of a 504 Coordinator so that your district is prepared for any situation.
In this one-day course, ATIXA faculty will provide a comprehensive overview of disability laws and guidelines regarding accommodations in both employment and K-12 education settings. Topics will include academic accommodations, service and emotional support animals, pregnant and parenting students, and mental health disabilities. Additionally, participants will explore the elements required for a well-developed grievance process and grievance forms and discuss best practices in organizational structure.
Why does ATIXA offer a course on disability compliance?
We offer this course because Title IX Coordinators commonly also serve as ADA/Section 504 Coordinators for their schools/districts and Title IX often intersects with disability law.
What makes this course valuable?
Disability laws and compliance intersect with Title IX compliance in nuanced ways, so having a working knowledge of disability issues is important in a Title IX program.
After completing this course, participants will be able to…
- Understand the role of the ADA and 504 Coordinator as distinct from the Disability/Accessibility Coordinator and IEP Coordinator roles

- Articulate the difference between service animals and emotional support animals, including legal requirements and guidelines
- Differentiate between an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) and a 504 Plan
- Assess what it means to be a pregnant and parenting student and what is required when responding to pregnancy-related accommodation requests
