504 Parent Information
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
To enjoy the protections of Section 504, an individual must demonstrate that he/she has a physical or mental impairment, which substantially limits a major life activity, has a record of such impairment or is regarded as having such impairment. Major life activities include, but are not limited to, seeing, hearing, speaking, walking, breathing, learning, working, caring for oneself and performing manual tasks. All students with disabilities who are entitled to attend school under state law are covered by these acts.
The act is designed to prevent discrimination against individuals with disabilities. It provides that a student shall not be excluded from participation in, or be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal funds such as public schools.
