Accomodating cuts

Local public school systems have accommodated students with disabilities under the auspices of four major laws.

These include the 2004 Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504), the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA), and state and local codes.

Each of these includes regulations and provisions for the participation of individuals with disabilities. IDEA regulations define “nonacademic services and extracurricular activities” and include athletics in the definitions (.306(b)).

Section 504 regulations also include athletics in their definitions (34 CFR 104.3(a)(2)).

Combined, US corporations have more than trillion in foreign profits sitting overseas for which they have never paid US tax, though the tax rate on that income is 35 percent.

Background A typical public school system includes a significant number of students with disabilities, often up to 10 percent of the total enrollment.

Neither IDEA nor Section 504 considers participation in athletics a FAPE issue.

One of the key non-discrimination requirements of Title I of the ADA is the obligation to provide reasonable accommodation for employees with disabilities.

Do employers have any obligation to provide temporary accommodations while researching an employee's accommodation request?

And when they die, their estates would owe no taxes no matter how large they are since Trump would repeal the estate tax.

Trump also has a deal for another of his favorite campaign targets--those US-based multinationals that moved jobs overseas.
