Section 504 Services

  • Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is designed to ensure that individuals with disabilities are not excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefit of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving financial assistance, such as a school district. A Section 504 Plan is a written plan outlining accommodations necessary for a person with a handicap to access general educational services. Such plans are developed through the Student Study Team (SST) process at the school sites. Qualification for a 504 Accommodation Plan requires evaluation data on the student to determine eligibility. The school principal is the Site Section 504 Coordinator.
