Heads up for a great music opportunity, a free summer jazz music camp.It allows the family of a student with a disability to pursue a suit for money damages under the Americans with Disabilities Act when the school districts actions constitute discrimination against the student with a disability and the nature of the suit is not a complaint about the denial of a Free Appropriate Public Education.
