Accommodations and related services provided through the Section 504 Rehabilitation Act Program (Section 504) ensure that a student with a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activity has equal access to education.

Section 504 accommodations and/or related services are delineated in a Section 504 Plan that is formulated by persons knowledgeable about the student such as the student’s teacher(s), parents/guardians, Section 504 School Site Coordinator, and other relevant school site staff as well as member(s) of the District 504 Resource Team if needed.

Examples of accommodations and/or services for students are: assistance on stairways for a student with mild cerebral palsy; extra time on tests for a student with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD); nursing services for a student with Type I Diabetes; and use of an FM system for a student with a hearing loss. Establishing and maintaining services and accommodations for disabled students “levels the playing field” and ensures that these students have equal access to education.
