What services are available?
In order to receive Section 504 accommodations and services, the school must refer and evaluate a student to determine whether a student has a physical or mental impairment that substantially limits a major life activity.
- Qualifying students with a disability regardless of the nature and severity must be offered a free appropriate public education (FAPE). FAPE is the provision of free services and accommodations that allow the student equal opportunity to participate in school programs and services.
- Accommodations are designed to offer disabled students an equal opportunity to obtain the same result, to gain the same benefit, or to reach the same level of achievement, in the most integrated setting appropriate to the student.
- Accommodations are not required to produce the identical result or level of achievement for nondisabled students.
