504 Only Offering "Convenient" Accommodations



I know there is specific language in PA Dept of Ed ch16 regarding gifted ed that says the below.  Is there something similar for 504s? I didn't see anything in chapter 15 that says the district can only offer accommodations that are convenient for them to do so as opposed to providing/agreeing to accommodations "which are needed to afford the student equal opportunity to participate in and obtain the benefits of the school program and extracurricular activities without discrimination and to the maximum extent appropriate to the student’s abilities (ch15 PDE)".

(e)  Gifted educational placement may not be based on one or more of the following:

   (1)  Lack of availability of placement alternatives.

   (2)  Lack of availability or efforts to make educational or support services available.

   (3)  Lack of staff qualified to provide the services set forth in the GIEP.

   (4)  Lack of availability of space or of a specific facility.

   (5)  Administrative convenience.
