What is an appropriate evaluation for Section 504?
Determining whether a child is a qualified student with a disability under Section 504 starts with the evaluation process. Section 504 requires the use of evaluation procedures that ensure that children are not inappropriately classified or labeled as having a disability. LCPS must individually evaluate a student before classifying the student as having a disability or providing the student with services and draw from a variety of sources in the evaluation process so that the possibility of error is minimized. The amount of information required as part of the evaluation is determined by the multi-disciplinary committee.
