Services During COVID-19

Your school's 504 coordinator will be available via email for any questions throughout the COVID-19 school closure. They have asked staff to be mindful of each students 504 plans, noting that many of these program supports are more relevant for in-person, real-time teaching. We will continue to support your family's 504 plans to the best extent possible.

About Section 504

504 infographic

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is an anti-discrimination statute that is designed to provide equal access to education programs, services, and activities for students with a physical or mental health disability.

When a student has a physical or mental impairment that limits a major life activity the district is required to level the playing field for the student to prevent discrimination and provide access like typical peers. A student with a mental and/or physical impairment that is progressing in school without modifications and/ or accommodations, or with modifications and/or accommodations available to every student would be eligible for the non-discrimination protections under Section 504, but would not have a written 504 plan.
