What is a Section 504 plan?

Posted by:

For qualified disabled students under Section 504, a committee of knowledgeable individuals shall develop a Section 504 Plan generally within 30 calendar days of the student's eligibility determination. The committee includes individuals who are knowledgeable of the student, the meaning of the evaluation data, and the placement options. The Section 504 Plan includes the accommodations, aides, and/or services that are necessary to afford the student an equal opportunity to access and benefit from activities and programs offered to all students enrolled in LCPS. Accommodations are focused on what is necessary to meet the student's needs related to their limitation as adequately as the needs of non-disabled students. Parents are invited to the meeting to participate in the development of the Section 504 Plan. Parental consent for the implementation of the plan is not required. The plan is reviewed annually.
