Multijurisdictional: Charter Schools: Hope Academies (OH) (15-11-5004)

In August and September 2014, 15 K-8 schools that were part of the Hope Academy consortium of charter schools, all of which had contracted for management services with White Hat Management, LLC, entered into a voluntary Agreement to resolve a Section 504, Title II, and Title VI compliance review that OCR initiated regarding discrimination against students with disabilities, discriminations against students who are English language learner (ELL) students, and parents/guardians who are limited-English proficient (LEP). According to the Agreement, each Academy will: adopt and implement a comprehensive, written plan, subject to OCR review and approval, to provide instruction to ELL students that will specifically address articulated criteria for eligibility and level of language development services, appropriate instructional materials, comparable facilities, and program monitoring; adopt and implement a comprehensive, written plan, subject to OCR review and approval, to ensure meaningful communication with LEP parents; develop and implement Section 504 policies and procedures, subject to OCR review and approval, for the identification, evaluation, and placement of students with disabilities; ensure that ELL students receive special education and related services as appropriate to their disabilities, if any, and not because of their English language proficiency; develop prompt and equitable Section 504 grievance procedures; identify and publish the contact information for designated Section 504/Title II coordinators; and provide relevant Title VI, Section 504, and Title II training to all staff.
