Section 504 of The Rehabilitation Act of 1973

 

Section 504 is a part of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 that prohibits discrimination based upon disability. Section 504 is an anti-discrimination, civil rights statute that requires the needs of students with disabilities to be met as adequately as the needs of their non-disabled peers.

 

To be eligible for Section 504, a student must have a physical or mental disability that substantially limits a major life activity. Section 504 eligible students may receive accommodations in the general education program. Students with 504 eligibility and plans are provided a Free and Appropriate Education (FAPE) and have procedural safeguards under the law.
