Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is designed to prohibit discrimination based on disability in any program or activity receiving Federal money. This statute obligates public schools to provide equal access and equal opportunity to otherwise qualified persons with disabilities.
For a student to qualify for 504 eligibility, the student must meet the following criteria:
- It must be because of this disability that the student is unable to gain equal access and benefit from school programs and services.
- A physical or mental impairment (has a history of having a physical or mental impairment):
- That substantially limits one ore more major life activities
If you have further questions or reasons to believe that you student might be eligible for a 504 plan please, contact Kristin Dust, 504 Coordinator at 323-266-4371 or firstname.lastname@example.org
