Section 504 Act of Rehabilitation

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 requires school districts to provide the full range of special accommodations and services necessary for students with special needs to participate in and benefit from public education programs and activities. Section 504 prohibits discrimination against persons with disabilities by school districts receiving federal financial assistance.  Students with disabilities must be provided with a free, appropriate, public education (FAPE).  

Section 504 protects all students with disabilities, defined as those having any physical or mental impairment that substantially limits one or more major life activities. (All individuals who have disabilities under the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) are also considered disabled and therefore protected under Section 504.)
