Section 504

Published on

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 ensures that individuals with disabilities are given protection from discrimination. Often at school, this means that a child in need of accommodations based on a disability that affects a ‘major life activity’ is allowed reasonable accommodations as determined by a 504 Committee. If you or your child needs accommodations under Section 504, or if you have questions, contact your social worker or your child’s school.
