Nueva guía para responder al acoso de los estudiantes con discapacidades

Publicado en

The U.S. Department of Education's Office for Civil Rights (OCR) investigates and resolves complaints of disability discrimination at public schools. OCR recently issued guidance to public schools (available in Spanish - PDF) to help school officials understand their federal responsibilities to respond to bullying of students with disabilities. This guidance builds on anti-bullying guidance the U.S. Department of Education has issued in recent years concerning schools' legal obligations to address bullying, including ensuring that students with disabilities who are bullied continue to receive a free appropriate public education. The guidance describes the rights of students with an individualized education program (IEP) developed under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) as well as the roughly three quarters of a million students with disabilities who are not eligible for IDEA services but who receive a plan developed under Section 504. 

OCR also issued a fact sheet for parents - PDF (available in Spanish - PDF) that addresses key points of the guidance and provides information on where to go for help. To learn more about federal civil rights laws or how to file a complaint, contact OCR at 800-421-3481 (TDD: 800-877-8339), or ocr@ed.gov.
