504 Plans

Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is a federal law designed to protect the rights of individuals with disabilities in programs and services from the United States Department of Education. The initiative is under the direction of the Office of Civil Rights (OCR). An important responsibility of the OCR is to eliminate discrimination on the basis of disability against students with disabilities. Section 504 regulations require a school district to provide "free appropriate public education" (FAPE) to students with disabilities who are within the school district jurisdiction; regardless of the nature or severity of the disabilities. Accommodations are developed which are consistent with the provision of services provided within regular programming or special education and related services which are designed to meet the education needs, as adequately, as the needs of non disabled students.

Parental consent is required for a 504 Evaluation Plan, which must be re-evaluated on an annual basis.
