Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, enacted in 1973, states “No otherwise qualified individual with handicaps in the United States...shall, solely by reason of her/his handicap, be excluded from the participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any program or activity receiving federal financial assistance."
For educational systems this means providing the full range of special accommodations and services necessary for individuals with disabilities to participate in and benefit from public school education programs and activities.
Please do not hesitate to contact your child's School Principal or Sara Cole, Director of Special Education, with any questions.
