Š       If a student eligible for, or receiving services under a 504/IEP, cannot wear a face covering due to the nature of the disability, the school or district must:

1.      Review the 504/IEP to ensure access to instruction in a manner comparable to what was originally established in the student’s plan including on-site instruction with accommodations or adjustments.

2.      Placement determinations cannot be made due solely to the inability to wear a face covering. 

3.      Plans should include updates to accommodations and modifications to support students. 

Š       Students protected under ADA/IDEA, who abstain from wearing a face covering, or students whose families determine the student will not wear a face covering, the school or district must: 

1.      Review the 504/IEP to ensure access to instruction in a manner comparable to what was originally established in the student’s plan.

2.      The team must determine that the disability is not prohibiting the student from meeting the requirement. 

Š       If the team determines that the disability is prohibiting the student from meeting the requirement, follow the requirements for students eligible for, or receiving services under, a 504/IEP who cannot wear a face covering due to the nature of the disability,

Š       If a student’s 504/IEP plan included supports/goals/instruction for behavior or social emotional learning, the school team must evaluate the student’s plan prior to providing instruction through Comprehensive Distance Learning. 

3.      Hold a 504/IEP meeting to determine equitable access to educational opportunities which may include limited on-site instruction, on-site instruction with accommodations, or Comprehensive Distance Learning.

X

Districts must consider child find implications for students who are not currently eligible for, or receiving services under, a 504/IEP who demonstrate an inability to consistently wear a face covering or face shield as required.  Ongoing inability to meet this requirement may be evidence of the need for an evaluation to determine eligibility for support under IDEA or Section 504.

X

If a staff member requires an accommodation for the face covering or face shield requirements, districts and schools should work to limit the staff member’s proximity to students and staff to the extent possible to minimize the possibility of exposure.
