Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act allows for reasonable accommodations and assistance as necessary for qualified students. To be protected under Section 504, a student must be determined to: (1) have a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities; or (2) have a record of such an impairment; or (3) be regarded as having such an impairment. The determination of whether a student has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity must be made on the basis of an individual inquiry.
For students who are determined to meet the criteria for Section 504 accommodations, the District will develop an individual accommodation plan (IAP) which will meet the educational needs of the student.
For additional information related to Section 504 please contact your campus administrator or Staci Prier, District 504 Coordinator. 972-924-1016.
