This tool is designed to assist your Local Education Authority (LEA) in better understanding the requirements of the legislation to provide an equitable learning environment, and/or in preparing for an on-site review.

This self-assessment tool guides your LEA through a review of the five major civil rights laws: Civil Rights Act, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, Title IX, Age Discrimination Act, and Americans with Disabilities Act. After reviewing policies and practices relating to these laws, your LEA will have an improved understanding of how to comply with the Office for Civil Rights requirements.
