504 Plans

What are they?

The Rehabilitation Act of 1973 commonly referred to as ‘Section 504’ or ‘§504,’ is a nondiscrimination statute enacted by the United States Congress. The purpose of the Act is to prohibit discrimination and to assure that disabled students have educational opportunities and benefits equal to those provided to non-disabled students.

A 504 Plan is written for those students who are determined eligible by the District 504 Team. It states accommodations necessary to allow a student with disabilities to have access to an education that is comparable to the education received by nondisabled students (FAPE).
