Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act
of 1973 is designed to prohibit discrimination based on disability in
any program or activity receiving Federal money. This statute obligates
public schools to provide equal access and equal opportunity to
otherwise qualified persons with disabilities. To determine 504
eligibility, a student must demonstrate, as a result of an evaluation,
to have a physical or mental disability/impairment (or having a history
of a physical or mental disability/impairment) that substantially limits
one or more major life activities.
For more information regarding Section 504 Eligibility, please contact the school 504 coordinator.
