Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
Students who demonstrate a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities may be eligible for a Section 504 Service Plan. A Section 504 Service Plan provides for reasonable accommodations related to the student's impairment so that the student's needs can be met as adequately as the needs of non-disabled students. Determinations regarding whether a student qualifies for a Section 504 Service Plan and what that plan consists of are made by the Section 504 team following a Section 504 assessment.
All Section 504 processes are managed at the school site during their regular school year. If you would like to learn more about Section 504, please contact the student’s school site administrator.
