Creating Accessible Schools

Abstract: 
Examines issues surrounding federal mandates to accommodate students with disabilities, including the requirements of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Section 504 of Title V of the Rehabilitation Act, and advisory guidelines from the U.S. Architectural and Transportation Barriers Compliance Board. The vagaries of accessibility laws and the need for careful reflection when planning new or renovating old facilities are addressed.
