504 Services

504 Plans
Section 504 is part of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973. Section 504 is a federal law which protects the rights of persons with qualifying disabilities. It requires that recipients of federal funds make their programs and activities accessible to all persons with disabilities. Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 protects persons from discrimination based upon their disability status. A person is considered to have a disability within the definition of Section 504 if her or she:

  • has a mental or physical impairment which substantially limits one or more of the major life activities
  • has a record of such impairments; or
  • is regarded as having an impairment

Major life activities include functions such as caring for one's self, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning, and working. When a condition does not substantially limit a major life activity, the person does not qualify under Section 504.

If you believe that your child may qualify for a 504 plan, please contact your building principal.
