Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (PL 93-112) is a major federal legislation designed to prevent discrimination against individuals with disabilities by entities such as schools that receive federal funds. A student qualifies as “disabled” when they have a record of a physical or mental impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activities such as learning.
Section 504 student plans and decisions are made by each school’s guidance and administrative teams along with parent input. If you feel that your child meets the criteria under section 504 and requires accommodations, please contact your child’s guidance counselor to begin this process.
