Loudoun County Public Schools implements a system of procedural safeguards for parents/guardians regarding the identification, evaluation, and placement of disabled students under Section 504 that includes:

  • notice for meetings;
  • an opportunity for the parents or guardian of the child to examine relevant records;
  • an impartial hearing with an opportunity for participation by the child’s parents or guardian and representation by counsel; and
  • a review procedure for appealing impartial hearing decisions.
