Section 504

Section 504 Education Plans

A student may be eligible for accommodations under a 504 Plan if he or she has a physical or mental health disability that limits one or more major life functions.  A 504 Plan identifies accommodations required by the child, and related to the child's disability, so he or she may participate in the general classroom setting and educational programs.  Referrals can be made through building Principals or School Counselors (see below for contact information).


What is Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act?

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act is a federal civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against qualified individuals with disabilities and guarantees them a free and public education (FAPE).  Students with a disability are to be provided the same opportunity to benefit from education programs, services and activities as their nondisabled peers.  This statute regards equal access to educational opportunities for students with medical or mental health impairments.
