The Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is a civil rights law that states that students with disabilities must be given the same opportunities to participate in academic, nonacademic and extracurricular activities as their non-disabled peers. This law applies to public elementary and secondary schools, as well as other education entities.

Under Section 504, students with disabilities may receive accommodations or modifications as well as supplementary aids and services to ensure that their individual educational needs are met as adequately as those of non-disabled students.

If you would like more information about Section 504 please contact the district 504 representative, Debbie Hailey at 254-296-6479.
