Section 504

Section 504 is a federal civil rights law that ensures students with disabilities are afforded an “equal opportunity to obtain the same result, to gain the same benefit, or to reach the same level of achievement” as an average peer. To pursue identification, anyone can refer a student to the school’s Section 504 coordinator. If appropriate, the Section 504 team will conduct an evaluation and then convene to determine eligibility. If the student is found to be eligible, the Section 504 team would determine the student’s placement, services, modifications, and accommodations, to help mitigate the barriers caused by the impairment(s).
