Section 504 for Students

  • Section 504

    Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973

    As amended by the United States Congress

    Section 504 is a civil right law (not a special education law) that protects the rights of individuals with disabilities in programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. This law requires that the district provide written assurances of non-discrimination, designate a district-level 504 coordinator, provide non-discrimination notice to students and parents, identify and locate qualified children with disabilities, and provide parents or guardians with procedural safeguards and grievance procedures.

    The definition of a disability under Section 504 is broadly expressed as a physical or mental condition that substantially limits a major life activity. Eligible students will require a Section 504 Accommodation Plan for access in general education, not special education.

    For more information:

    Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) 1990

    As amended by the United States Congress

    ADA is a civil right statute, which provides a comprehensive national mandate for the elimination of discrimination against individuals with disabilities in employment, public accommodations, transportation, state and local government and telecommunications. ADA (Title II) is enforced by the U.S. Office of Civil Rights (OCR).
