Section 504 Information
Student Rights and School Responsibilities
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and Americans with Disability Act
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act prohibits discrimination against persons with a disability in any program receiving Federal financial assistance. Students with disabilities shall be provided accommodations in order to ensure equal participation in the school setting. The Act defines a person with a disability as anyone who has a mental or physical impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activity: self-care, performing manual tasks, walking, seeing, hearing, speaking, breathing, learning and working. Academic accommodations may include individualized instruction, extra time, reduced workload or organizational assistance. Physical accommodations may include assistive devices or special equipment, administering medication or preferential seating, but would not include changes in instructional programs.
When a student with disabilities requires an accommodation, the parents and school representatives will meet to determine the disability, and develop a written plan outlining accommodations that will be provided in the school setting.
