• Section 504


    Our Mission

    To assist campuses in providing a quality education to students with disabilities that allows them to achieve their greatest potential and prepares them for future success.

    What is Section 504?

    Section 504 is a federal civil rights law that focuses on the non-discrimination of students with disabilities. The law says that a public school, or any other federally funded public facility, cannot discriminate against a student because of a disability and must be given the same opportunities to participate in academic and extracurricular activities.

    Under Section 504, students with disabilities may receive accommodations and services to ensure that their individual educational needs are met as adequately as those of non-disabled students.
