Section 504 Eligibility And Services

Section 504, part of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, is a civil rights law that prohibits discrimination against individuals with disabilities.  This federal mandate requires that students who are disabled under the definition of Section 504 are evaluated, identified and provided with equal access to appropriate accommodations and services and educational opportunities equivalent to their non-disabled peers.  A teacher, staff member, or parent can refer a student to the building 504 Team if they suspect that the student has a qualifying disability that interferes with his/her ability to fully access the school curriculum and may impede progress.  Each school has a 504 Team, which will review the referral, determine the need for additional information/data and make a plan to address concerns.  Some students referred to the team may not qualify for services, but each case will be reviewed and if the student is eligible, a 504 Plan will be developed and reviewed at least yearly.  Parents who are concerned about potential 504 eligibility should contact their child’s guidance counselor (middle and high school levels) or the school social worker (elementary level).
