In addressing requests for modifications to class attendance policies, OCR findings make it clear that we should not send students to negotiate reasonable accommodations with their faculty members. Faculty understanding of disability and the law and the power differential make that a determination that needs to be handled by professionals in the disability resource office. But, how do we manage the need for individual consideration with so many students and the unique nature of each class? Join us for a practical guide to implementing best practices in addressing requests for attendance modification and anticipating and responding to faculty questions and student expectations.
