|Section 504 Plans||
Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 is civil rights legislation that prohibits discrimination of pupils with disabilities in school systems. This law specifically prohibits discrimination against students with physical or mental impairments and guarantees them a free and appropriate public education (FAPE).
It is a civil rights statute that requires the needs of students with disabilities to be met as adequately as the needs of the non-disabled are met. To be eligible to receive assistance under a Section 504 plan, the student must be found eligible as being an individual with a disability or as an individual with an impairment that “substantially” reduces or lessens a student’s ability to access the learning in the educational setting because of a learning, behavior or health related condition.

Special Education Process
- If a parent has concerns about learning or behavior with his or her child, the first step is contact the teacher. A phone call or discussion may alleviate the concern.
- IAT-Intervention Assistance Team. If a concern persists, the parents and teachers may meet with the principal and document interventions and how the child responds to the interventions. The School Psychologist is sometimes part of these meetings.
- The team may meet multiple times to evaluate the effectiveness of the interventions.
- If the concern persists, the team may suspect a disability and the child may be evaluated.
The goal is to help the child to be successful with the least adult intervention.
