Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
The District seeks to identify, evaluate and provide free and appropriate educational services to all qualified students with disabilities within the definitions of Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act. No qualified student with a disability shall, on the basis of disability, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or otherwise be subjected to discrimination under any district program, including nonacademic services and extracurricular activities.
The District will provide a free appropriate public education to each qualified student with a disability in the District's jurisdiction. An appropriate education is the provision of regular or special education and related aids and services that are designed to meet the individual education needs of students with disabilities as adequately as the needs of students without disabilities are met, and complies with applicable federal regulations.
