This is a federal civil rights law that protects the rights of students with physical or mental impairments that substantially limit a major life activity. This law directs recipients of federal funds to make programs and activities accessible to all persons with disabilities. Section 504 has three areas of emphasis: employment; facility accessibility; and requirements for preschool, elementary and secondary education programs/activities. This page focuses solely on students.
If you feel your child may qualify for services under this program contact your student’s building principal. The Principal will then take steps to convene a team of individuals who are knowledgeable about your child to determine, based on evaluation data, if your child qualifies under 504 and whether a 504 Plan is warranted.
