Student 504 Procedures


Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 ("Section 504") is a Federal civil rights law that is designed to eliminate disability discrimination in programs and activities that receive Federal funds.  Since all public school districts receive Federal funds, all public school districts must comply with Section 504.  Under Section 504, denying a disabled student a free appropriate public education ("FAPE") constitutes disability discrimination.
