Section 504

  • Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibits recipients of federal funding from discriminating against individuals with disabilities. This Act is a non-discrimination law that also guarantees students with disabilities access to a free appropriate public education. It requires schools to provide all individuals the opportunity for meaningful participation in district programs & facilities.

    In order to qualify for non-discrimination protection under Section 504 of the Vocational Rehabilitation Act, an individual must:

    1) Have a mental or physical impairment which substantially limits one or more major life activity

    2) Have a record of such impairments

    3) Be regarded as having such an impairment

    If you have a child or know of a student who may be eligible under Section 504, contact the student's school counselor for additional information.
