Yes. If your complaint involves an issue of educational discrimination under Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, you can file a disability-based discrimination complaint with the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Civil Rights (OCR). Complaints of educational discrimination against students with disabilities by school districts may also be filed with the CDE by using the complaint procedures described above. [5 C.C.R. Secs. 4600(c) & 4630(b).] Issues of disability-based educational discrimination, however, are usually appropriate for filing with OCR. See Chapter 16, Information on Section 504 and Disability-Based Discrimination.
