Technical Assistance

Technical assistance to educational institutions helps them comply with federal civil rights requirements, while assistance to parents, students, and others informs them of their rights under the law.  OCR provides information and other support services through a variety of methods, including on-site consultations, conferences, training, community meetings, and publication and dissemination of materials to many interested parties, including students, parents, teachers, administrators, schools, colleges, universities, and community groups.  Appendix C lists a sample of the technical assistance publications available on OCR’s Web site (www.ed.gov/ocr).
