Support student success and promote equity with Frontline Section 504 plan management software.
“At this time, few schools have a firm grasp of the Section 504 process. By creating the guidelines and forms as a system, we sought to ensure consistency in language and action and, to the extent possible, have the forms guide Section 504 committees through their tasks to ensure that proper procedures were followed to satisfy the Office for Civil Rights (OCR).”
