Legal Protections, Rights, and Responsibilities

  • Federal laws, such as The Americans with Disabilities Act, The Individuals with Disabilities with Education Act (IDEA), The Family Medical Leave Act (FMLA), and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, provide important legal protections for the rights of students with diabetes.
  • Section 504 Plan Sample Provisions: This file contains sample provisions to be included in a student’s 504 plan. It can be difficult to think of all of the things a student may need to be safe at school. This document will help a parent or family member decide what to include in their child’s plan.
