Section 504

  • Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973/Public law 93-112 is a comprehensive law that addresses the rights of handicapped students in each school, eliminating barriers to educational programs.

    Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (Section 504) is a Federal civil rights law that prohibits disability discrimination in programs and activities that receive Federal funds. The law requires all public and charter Schools to provide Free Appropriate Public Education (FAPE) to qualified individuals. The Office of Civil Rights (OCR) oversees the compliance for Section 504. The law ensures that students with a disability have educational opportunities and benefits equal to those provided to non-disabled students. Section 504 regulations require school districts to provide appropriate education to students with disabilities under Section 504.

    Eligibility for Section 504 begins at the school level. Each school has a individual designated to coordinate Section 504.

    For more information or questions regarding eligibility and services please contact the 504 coordinator at your local school or view the resources below to determine who that person is.
